The Civil engineering department has been in existence since the establishment of this institute. The department has an excellent infrastructure and is AICTE approved and accredited by the national board of accreditation. The department laboratory consists of Surveying, Geo technical Engineering, Concrete technology, Transportation Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Engineering geology, Applied mechanics, Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics, Strength of materials and CADD labs.
Vision of the Department:
- To build a reputed department that will produce competent, committed and socially responsible professionals
- To impart knowledge in civil engineering and allied fields through a dynamic curriculum.
- To promote commitment towards excellence.
- To create awareness about and encourage socially responsible civil engineering practices.
Civil department is equipped with the following state of the art laboratories
- 1. Concrete Technology
The civil engineering structures of all kinds, concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world. This laboratory helps the students to learn techniques in preparation of concrete, studying its ingredients and properties.
- 2. Geotechnical Engineering Lab
Geotechnical engineering is an area of civil engineering concerned with the rock and soil that civil engineering systems are supported by Knowledge from the fields of geology, material science and testing, mechanics, and hydraulics are applied by geotechnical engineers to safely and economically design foundations, retaining walls, and similar structures. This laboratory can be very useful for experiments related to soil for pavement subgrade, subbase etc. Following are the major equipment available in this laboratory.
- 3. Surveying
Surveying is the technique and science of accurately finding out the position of points and the distances and angles between them. With respect to importance of surveying in construction field, our survey lab is kept well equipped with latest instruments.
- 4. Transportation Lab
Transportation engineering is the application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods transport. It is a sub-discipline of civil engineering. Transportation engineering is a major component of the civil engineering.
- 5. Engineering Geology Lab
The Engineering Geology lab is a significant laboratory in the Department of Civil. The main objective of this lab is to make aware the students about the different geological processes and agents modifying the earth’s surface, mineralogical and petrological characteristics of the rocks, Geological history of therocks through the different Rock types and Geological Models available in the laboratory. In turn it will help students to understand the geological considerations while selecting sites for dams, reservoirs, tunnels and other civil structures.
- 6. Environmental Engineering Lab
The primary objective of this lab is to demonstrate environmental engineering testing procedures for the subjects of Environmental Engineering I and II and for the electives such as solid waste management and Industrial waste water treatment. This lab is continuously upgraded with the latest environmental equipments. It covers the four major pollution areas: air, wastewater and water and solid waste management. Students contribute through various undergraduate and postgraduate projects in the lab. Various models of water filtration and aeration tanks are available in the lab.
- 7. Strength of Materials Lab
Strength of materials is the physical science that looks at the behaviour of a body to movement and deformation due to mechanical, thermal and other loads. Materials testing and materials characterization can help to determine the best material for our application. This strength of materials and material testing laboratory offers facilities for testing building materials for their strength, behavior and suitability for various applications.
- 8. Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic machines Lab
Hydraulic Engineering is the application of fluid mechanics principles to problems dealing with the collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement and use of water. The hydraulic engineer actually develops conceptual design for the various features which interact with water such as spillways and outlet works for the dams, culverts for highways, canals and related structures for irrigation projects, and cooling water facilities for the thermal power plants. Hydraulic engineering as a sub-discipline of Civil Engineering is concerned with the flow and conveyance of fluids, principally water and sewage. Civil Engineers play a vital role in the optimal planning, design and operation of water resources systems. Keeping the applications of hydraulic engineering in mind the laboratory is setup.
- 9. Applied Mechanics
Applied Mechanics Laboratory is meant for providing students the opportunity to perform experiments and verify laws of mechanics and also to understand the application of the theory covered in course of mechanics. It will also help in visualizing basic forces and mechanisms involved in engineering design.
- 10. CAD Lab
CAD lab is available to graduate students in the Department of Civil Engineering. It develops the knowledge about Computer Aided Design (CAD) and STADD PRO packages. Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design
CAD LAB Equipment & Softwares
- Auto CAD 2016
- STADD PROV8
- LCD Mounting Projector
- HP Printer 1020, 1008 Epson 2090 .
