Geosynthetics expert honoured

Friday, 02 November 2018


Associate Professor Sanjay Kumar Shukla’s contribution to the field of geosynthetics was recognised with a major international award recently.

Professor Shukla was awarded the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) Award at their recent conference at Seoul in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the development and use of geosynthetics during 2014-2017.

The IGS Award is given out every four years, and being the most prestigious award, is considered to be the Nobel Prize for the field of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering.

Professor Shukla said it was a great honour to receive the award.

“I was thrilled to receive the IGS Award; it is wonderful to receive this kind of recognition from my peers in the field of geosynthetics, which protect the environment, and provide innovative and sustainable solutions to infrastructure problems,” he said.
