Civil Engineering is one of the oldest branches of Engineering. Civil Engineers are concerned with all types of structures including dams, bridges, pipelines, roads, towers and buildings transports systems, the design and management of our gas and water supply, sewerage systems, harbors, airports and railways.
The department is fully reformative and continuously reshaping its laboratory features, faculty and other requirements as per the demand of time and region. The department also takes care of the level of training required for placement of its student not only with in the country but also across its borders and meet out the new challenges faced by our human resources to exploit the opportunities available over there.
When you build a piece of infrastructure it has to be connected to the ground. Geotechnical engineering is about understanding how the infrastructure interacts with the ground. In this lab students study about soil types and their behavior under different loading conditions.
Structural engineering involves the analysis and design of structures such as buildings, bridges, towers, marine structures, dams, tunnels, retaining walls and other infrastructure. It involves an analysis and design of buildings and non-building structures. This is the most wide and most common civil engineering discipline. Students learn about structural integrity, function and safety under different type of loadings.
Transport engineering has recently developed into a domain that is multidisciplinary in nature spanning concepts in economics, politics, sociology, and psychology in addition to core mathematical, engineering and computational knowledge and principles. In Transportation Engg. Lab, students study about material behavior under external loading and unwanted weather conditions.
It is about how water interacts with all aspects of the built and natural environments. Water engineering looks at the way that natural systems such as rivers, estuaries and the coasts behave, as well as designing infrastructure to store and direct water.
As the name would suggest, environmental engineers are concerned with developing ways to prevent pollution of the natural environment and with remediating areas that have already been polluted by industrial activity or mining. Environmental engineering also encompasses aspects of urban planning as well as the health and safety of indoor environments. Environmental engineers are typically employed by private consulting firms and governmental regulatory agencies. In this Lab students learn about water treatment methods.
The Surveying Laboratory is equipped with the instruments and tools that students use throughout the surveying course. Students learn techniques for gathering field data with both traditional and modern instruments. Each lab group - typically five students - has a dedicated set of instruments to use, including auto level, theodolite, and total station. Each group also has level rods, tripods, tape measures, chaining pins, and other common surveying tools and ancillary equipment.
Concrete is the most widely used man made construction material in the world. There are many tests which students conduct to check the quality of concrete. These tests are basically Compression Test, Slump Test, Flow Table Test & Rebound Hammer Test etc.
