In November 2019, I conducted my 2nd paid workshop. It was an excellent experience. I spent months planning how I can help the local community of Civil Engineers here in Pakistan. I’m quite passionate about structural & interior designing — so as you can imagine AutoCAD is one of my favorite tools.
Pakistan Geotechnical Engineering Society (PGES) in collaboration with the University of Wollongong Australia and UET Lahore Pakistan organized a 3-day event including 2 international conferences under the flag of International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and a sightseeing trip with foreign delegates from 5 to 7 December 2019.
Hola Amigos 👋
Below I’m sharing the 2D drawings of a 1 kanal, equivalent to 4500 square feet house that I made on AutoCAD. 👷♀️
I am making an effort to write this year in review after getting my inspiration from my awesome brother-in-law, Ahmad Awais. As he writes:
2018 was an incredible year for me, both personally and professionally. I am writing this year in review to fight with my imposter syndrome, to hold myself accountable, to keep a log of what I do, and to see how I improve myself as an engineer & designer over the years.
About a week ago, I conducted my first workshop. It was an excellent experience. I spent months planning how I can help the local community of Civil Engineers (especially female engineers) here in Pakistan. I’m quite passionate about structural & interior designing — so as you can imagine AutoCAD is one of my favorite tools.
AutoCAD is an essential software not only for engineers and designers but also for common people. Now one doesn’t need to install the whole software. We can access AutoCAD from our web browser. 💻
If you forgot your laptop at home in which you have installed AutoCAD, and you want to create new designs then nothing to worry about💯. As now Autocad web application 2019 allows one to create, view and edit designs without installation of the whole software. Just type web.autocad.com, and you get access to the software.
With the help of AutoCAD mobile app, you can create, view, edit and even share CAD drawings with anyone 📱. Now people working on site doesn’t need to carry the burden of those enormous number of drawings with them as all of them are available by just a click of a button. Further, internet connection is also not vital as once you have downloaded the file you can work without internet connection as well. With this new version, you can access your files from any device.
Plastic pollution has always been on the hot list for many years. Non-biodegradable plastic has adversely affected the ecosystem. This problem now doesn’t remain unresolved as engineers have started working on using recycled plastic in construction.
Opting for Civil Engineering as my profession wasn’t easy for me. The world that we live in is entitled to be a male-dominated arena. The birth of feminism opened many opportunities for women.
I am Maham Batool. I’m currently studying to be a Civil Engineer. I completed my O-levels with a double promotion.
I’m starting my very first personal blog. I can’t share how happy that makes me feel. It’s almost like an accomplishment in itself. But I won’t take all the credit here.
The fact of the matter is, I received a lot of help from my brother in law, Ahmad Awais — who happens to know WordPress and building sites very well.
