The International Dam Innovation Contest (IDIC) is a competition event held by the Civil Engineering Innovation Contest (CEIC) of Civil Engineering at Diponegoro University which is active in the field of water buildings, namely dams.
This year’s CEIC Season XI International Dam Innovation Contest (IDIC) carries a theme that is very relevant to the issue of flood problems, namely “Innovation Planning of Landfill Dam Type as Flood Control and Maximized the Other Multifunction”.
Complex environmental problems such as flood problems are very common throughout the world, so the International Dam Innovation Contest (IDIC) fully contributes to creating the next generation by accommodating international students to channel their ideas and innovations in planning dams that maximize their utilization.
