Indian Concrete Institute (ICI) is the national organization of engineering professionals employed in concrete technology and associated research areas in India. It was founded in 1982 in Chennai following a resolution at the International Seminar and Exhibition on 'Modernization of Concrete Practices' organized jointly by the Structural Engineering Research Centre (SERC) and Anna University. Today it is a strong professional body having more than 12,000 enrolled members from 33 regional centres in all major cities.
The SAINTGITS Student Chapter of Indian Concrete Institute was inaugurated at on 23rd March 2012. ICI Saintgits Student Chapter embraces budding civil engineers. The very objective of the ICI Saintgits Student Chapter is to help bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge taught at the campus and what is being practiced in the field. The involvement of students in ICI activities moulds them into professionals competent to face the challenges in the field. ICI also conducts value-added courses in concrete that benefits practicing engineers and students.
ICI Saintgits Student Chapter organizes technical fests, technical talks, quiz contests, mix design competitions etc, at the college yearly.
