As stated by the bruntland commission report in 1987, sustainable development means a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This means that humans can sustain themselves by fulfilling their basic needs in a way which in a way which does not depreciate the amount of natural resources for future generations. The key pillars of sustainable development are social, economic and environmental. Different engineering disciplines including Architectural Engineering, Communication Engineering, Computer and Software Engineering, Dam and Water Resources Engineering, Electronics, Control, Signals and Systems, Energy and Power System, Engineering Management, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Renewable Energy Systems, Structural Engineering and Transportation Engineering can work together to achieve the goal of Sustainable Development. The overall goal of this series is to present the latest snapshot of ongoing research as well as to shed further light on future directions in Sustainable Development. For this series, we invite researchers, academicians and professionals to contribute, expressing their ideas and research in the application of intelligent techniques to the field of engineering in handbooks, reference books, and/or monograph volumes.
