Balamand ACI Student Chapter

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) initiated a Student Chapter at the University of Balamand (UOB) with Dr. Nariman Khalil and Dr. Hikmat Zerbe serving as Student Advisor and Contact Person, respectively. 

ACI is a leading authority and resource worldwide for the development and distribution of consensus-based standards, technical resources, educational and training programs, certification programs, and proven expertise for individuals and organizations involved in concrete design, construction, and materials. ACI members consist of engineers, architects, consultants, contractors, educators, material suppliers, equipment suppliers, owners, and students. 

The purpose of the Student Chapter is to encourage student interest in the study of concrete and to develop an awareness of ACI, ACI chapters, and consensus procedures by which ACI operates. 
The UOB chapter is the first in Lebanon and the region and one of the selection criteria is determined based on having an intuition with expressed interest in concrete.

Balamand was able to meet the requirements of ACI by winning the ACI student competitions three times in the last four years (2013, 2014, 2016) and thus showed how the university is continuously trying to build-up team spirit and how dedicated the students, advisors and the department are.
