The academic association of Civil Engineering (AUGC)

Missions

Established in 1981, the AUGC aims developing and promoting the academic teaching (initial formation, continuing formation, PhD studies) and researches in the civil engineering field in the universities and high schools depending on the French Education Ministry.

The association initiates links with other French associations which act in developing civil engineering and its specialities. It supports the international cooperation, identifies graduates job opportunities and encourages contacts between its members.

Way of operates

The activities of the association are coordinated by its direction board (made up by twelve members). This direction board is renewed partially (third) by the members at the annual general meeting held during the academic symposium of civil engineering. The direction board elects an internal committee and meets 5 times per year. The direction board is supported by a scientific.

Every year, the AUGC organizes the academic symposium of civil engineering which includes several events:

  • A scientific meeting which themes are open-ended allowing the researchers community to present their works.
  • The "René HOUPERT" young researchers' price which offers to PhD students the possibility to expose their works to all the researchers and professional communities of civil engineering. By the way, it contributes in the diffusion of a part of their laboratory activities. This price is organized in connection with the Doctoral Network of Civil Engineering.
  • Several workshops relating to civil engineering training.

These three events traduce the AUGC objectives: to collectively contribute to the continuing education of university teachers to increase the quality of our students' training, to participate to the PhD students training and to the dissemination of our research results.

The AUGC organizes also scientific events in collaboration with other associations or groups. These events cover amore precise topics than that on which focuses the annual general meeting.

The AUGC represents the academic community at the different partners of civil engineering field.

Our Website

The website www.augc-asso.fr is devoted to the internal and external communication of the association. It contains several directories (members, education and training, laboratories, PhD schools research projects), it presents job or training advertisements (in research field or in professional one) and scientific current affairs.

Our new web site facilitates the access to the information by keywords.

Minutes of the meetings
The scientific committee (SC)

The SC is a thinking organization on the civil engineering research. It contributes in giving answers to authorities which ask the association about research planning. It contributes also to define research themes with the profession.

It takes part in the scientific organization of the academic civil engineering community, especially by:

  • Suggesting educations and seminars for the meetings of young-researchers network in civil engineering and for the PhD degree educations located on several locations. These seminars could be organized on particularly relevant themes.
  • Looking after the representation of French academic in national and international scientists' society and networks.
  • Suggesting themes of civil engineering seminars in French Association of Mechanics (AFM) congresses.
  • Taking part in the preparation of the scientific conferences where the AUGC is partner.
  • Facilitating the implementation of researchers' federations for the editing of answers to calls for proposals (National projects (ANR), European projects ...)
  • Contributing to the dissemination of the scientific information.

The SC is made up of 12 members. 6 are elected by the association members, 6 are appointed by the direction board for a period of 4 years. A half is renewed each 2 years. The SC meets twice a year. It elects a chair and a secretary among its members. The chair takes part in the representation of the AUGC.
