Psychological games workshop

The psychological games that exist in human relationships are defined in terms of transactional analysis (TA). According to the analysis of mutual behavior, every human being is in one of the states of his child, adult or parent at any given moment and is constantly changing from one state to another.

Eric Berne explains that the reason these games continue to go on in daily life is that one of the players is so-called cheating.
The games are repetitive. Each person plays their favorite game over and over again at different times. Opposing sides of the game and circumstances may change. But the pattern of the game does not change.
Games are played without adult awareness. Despite the fact that people repeat the games over and over again, they play their game again and again without knowing it. Only when the actor reaches the final scenes of the game may he ask himself: How did this happen again? Even at this stage, it is not usually the people who have been involved in launching the game themselves.

Learn more about psychological games and transactional analysis at the psychological games workshop.

  • This workshop is for members of the Office of Sustainability with a valid membership card.

GIS Basic Training Course Report

The introductory training course of ArcGIS software was held from February 1 to March 7, 2017 in 6 sessions of 3 hours, on Thursdays. This course was the first series of GIS school training courses of Amirkabir University of Technology. The main goal of the GIS school is to train efficient staff and seals to work on GIS projects, with an emphasis on environmental projects and sustainable development.

In order to improve the quality of teaching the course and to present the materials better with a practical approach to the concepts taught, it was decided to use two teachers to teach the course. Finally, during several meetings and discussions, Dr. Mehdi Ahmadi (faculty member of Amirkabir University of Technology) and Mr. Goodarz Jalalvand (GIS specialist and head of GIS department of Lar Engineering and Consulting Company) with 17 years of experience in Various GIS-related projects took the trouble to teach the introductory course. Dr. Ahmadi, a graduate of the University of Colorado, USA, had extensive experience in teaching GIS at his university, and together with Mr. Jalalvand, who had extensive operational experience in this field, he formed an excellent teaching team.

In order to improve the quality of the course and hold it as well as possible, it was decided to limit the number of participants and finally the introductory course was held with 17 people. The course was held in the seminar hall of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Amirkabir University of Technology, which had suitable facilities for holding the course.

Finally, it was designed to gather the participants’ opinions about the different parts of the course. The results of the survey showed high satisfaction of the participants of the course. Other comments, criticisms and suggestions of the participants were also extracted to improve future courses.

The first GIS school, with an emphasis on environmental engineering, water resources management and urban management

What is GIS School?

Today, GIS is one of the most important tools that have many applications in various fields such as environmental engineering, water resources management, urban engineering, urban management, crisis management, etc. Therefore, in most world-class universities and institutes, it is offered as one of the main units in many fields.

The importance of this tool is such that some sites such as O * net OnLine, which introduces the characteristics of qualified professionals in various fields, making it one of the necessary skills for engineers and professionals working in the field. Introduced related to the environment.

Due to the great importance of GIS for students, professionals, and even managers active in areas related to the field of environment and sustainable development, the Office of Sustainability of the Amirkabir University of Technology decided to establish the first GIS school in the country. The purpose of this school was to teach ArcGIS software completely from basic to advanced stages. The point that distinguishes this set from other GIS training courses is its emphasis on the use of ArcGIS software with environmental engineering, water resources management, urban engineering, urban management, and so on. Therefore, the course instructors, namely “Dr. Mehdi Ahmadi” and “Mr. Goodarz Jalalvand”, are active GIS specialists who have a long history of teaching as well as working on projects related to environmental engineering.

Dr. Mehdi Ahmadi is a faculty member of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, and a graduate of the University of Colorado, USA, with a long history of teaching ArcGIS software. It should be noted that he specializes in environmental projects and water resources management.

Also, Mr. Goodarz Jalalvand has a master’s degree in geography-geomorphology from the University of Tehran and has 18 years of professional experience in the field of GIS and various projects related to the environment, urban management, water resources management, etc. It should be mentioned that he is currently working as a senior expert in the GIS department at Lar Consulting Engineering Company.

The high ability and experience of the instructors of these courses, both in the academic field and in the field of various environmental projects, has created a unique combination of knowledge, expertise, and high experience in the field of GIS that participation in GIS school, the possibility of benefit. Provides participants with them.

The main purpose of the GIS School is to provide specialized training in ArcGIS software from basic to advanced and to prepare course participants for a variety of GIS-related projects. In addition to introductory to advanced courses, the school includes specialized courses in the use of Arc GIS software in the following sections and projects:

These supplementary courses are designed as short-term workshops to train professionals.

Due to the nature of the GIS school, many audiences will be able to benefit from it. It should be noted that the GIS school will start its activities from the introductory period and all the introduced sections will start operating soon. For more information and knowledge of the content of the courses, you can use the attached Pdf file.

Course start time: January 31st, 2019 – Thursdays will be from 10 am to 1 pm for 6 weeks.
