CIVIL ENGINEERING WORKSHOP

In the first year of Civil Engineering program, students are required to be given exposure to different activities related to construction work. Students should be given basic skills of various construction activities with all the safety measurement required for the same. In order to have a balanced overall development of budding engineers, it is necessary to integrate theory with practice. The course of Civil Engineering Workshop practices would facilitate the opportunity to appreciate the basic construction activities that a Civil Engineer is expected to perform.   The students are advised to practice each of the experiments with an understanding of necessary technical aspects and safety precautions needed to be observed.

 SURVEY LABORTARY

           The planning and design of all Civil Engineering projects such as construction of highways, bridges, tunnels, dams etc. are based upon surveying measurements. Moreover, during execution, project of any magnitude is constructed along the lines and points established by surveying. The objective of survey lab is to make a student familiar and competent enough to draw a map in suitable scale by using different surveying instruments like Total station, Theodolite, Dumpy level, Compass, etc. The laboratory has modern instruments which are extensively used in order to edify the students about the latest surveying methodologies. Annual survey camps are also held for pre final year students.
