    Namaste from Nepal (my country).

    I want to work on a research paper titled as "Application of Python in Civil engineering". I would be the glad if I got chance to work with you and discuss on the topic in more detailed way.

    Hoping for your positive response to this message.

    Hi Sulav.
    Consider sending your request to:
    a. ASCE Chapters/sections in your region for various engineering groups.

    b. Sending your request to Civil Engineering Dept. Heads for their Ph.D. students as well.

    Stay Healthy!

    Dear Sulav Lohani
    This research will be very useful for civil engineering. But I think the field of research is so wide, therefor it is better to look at the specialized subject and the field of research in a research subject using Python programming.

    I'm happy that I could help you more on this subject

    Hi Namaste!

    Thank you for this, I think this is good to practice team work and for students like me. I would like to help you in your research because I see this as a great opportunity for me when I'm really interested in programming since I was Senior High School. Let me know if this is still on going, I'm currently turning 4th year college this coming semester and I hope I could help you please let me know.

    Hello Sulav,

    I think the topic is a little bit too broad. Is there any specific topics within Civil Engineering that you like? Focusing on such topic will take less time and benefit you more imo.
    For example, using Python in Water resources / Hydrology:
    Python programming for Hydrology MSc students
    Open Source Python Packages in Hydrology
    Python for performing hydraulic and hydrology stormwater analysis.
    Python for hydrology
