About the Course
Civil  Engineering  is  field  of  Engineering  Sciences,  related  to  design,  construction  and  maintenance  of buildings, dams, bridges, tunnels, highways and other structures by the use of physical laws, mathematical
equations and theories of mechanics. Civil Engineers utilize the available resources to complete the project in the given time span keeping in view the time, expenditure, environmental issues and physical hazards of
the  project.  A  civil  engineer  is  responsible  for  planning,  design,  construction  and/or  maintenance  of structures.   Civil   Engineers   can   work   in   private   construction   companies,   government   public   works
organizations  or  in  universities  as  a  research  fellow  or  a  teacher.  A  Civil  Engineer  can  be  a  surveyor,  a technical report writer or even a project manager. 

Future Scope
Due to increase in the scope of Civil Engineering with the passage of time, it has now got diversified into many  branches  of study.  Some  of  the  significant  ones  include  Structural  Engineering,  Geotechnical
Engineering,  Transportation  Engineering,  Hydraulic  Engineering,  Environmental  Engineering  and  other important areas. Laboratory: Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering Department has following Labs:
1. Surveying Laboratory: In  this  laboratory  measurements  of  distances  using  chain  and  tape,  bearing  of  lines  using a compass, reduced levels and contours using level etc are determined. The experiments include determination Use of modern equipment like total station will be demonstrated. This laboratory course will help the students to understand the theoretical concepts learned in the course surveying. The height of mountains, depth of valley etc is measured by surveyors. The surveying laboratory familiarizes the students surveying equipment. Surveying Drawings are plotted and then designed using CAD tools. 

2. Structure Mechanics Lab: This lab is the latest one in this field. It provides the knowledge of structures to calculate force, deflection, behavior  and  stress  with  applied  mechanics  of  beams,  arches,  trusses  and frames  for  loadings.  The load calculation is compared with measured results. The lab work includes deflection using a simply supported beam, truss, horizontal deflection & vertical deflection of various joints of a pin­ jointed truss, behavior of struts, elastic properties of a beam, Uniaxial tension test for steel and compression test. 

3. Soil Mechanics & Geotechnology Lab: Soil  Mechanics  and  Geotechnology  Laboratory  in  Civil  engineering  determine the  engineering  and physical   properties   of   soil.   The   engineering   properties   include   compressibility,   permeability,   and consolidation, shear strength and bearing capacity of the soil, whereas the physical properties include gravity, density, moisture, consistency  limits  and  shrinkage  limits.  All  these properties  are  necessary  for  robustdesign  of  structural  foundations. This  laboratory  is  well  furnished  with  new  and  modern  facilities  and types of equipment  for  soil  experiments  and  soil investigation.  This  course curriculum  helps  the  students  gain practical knowledge about the theoretical concepts studied in Geotechnical Engineering. 

4. Concrete Lab: In the Concrete technology lab, the physical properties of various building construction materials (cement, coarse,  steel,  wood  etc.)  are  studied.  Various  tests  are  performed  in  the  laboratory  to determine  the properties of concrete materials for specific gravity, normal consistency, workability, and fineness etc. The students test and find the perfect concrete blend for adorable construction. The mix of material proportion is carried out to maintain integrity. 

5. Transportation Lab: This  lab  deals  with  a  detailed  study  and  understanding  of  coarse  aggregates  and  bitumen.  The lab  work includes tests for impact, abrasion, attrition test and crushing strength for coarse aggregate and tests for penetration, ductility, viscosity, softening point and flash and fire point for bitumen. The students learn to find  the  perfect  mix  for construction  of  roads.  Frequent  visits  are  arranged  for  students at  highway construction site. 

6. Fluid Mechanics Lab: This  lab  provides  a  way  to  determine  the  various  parameters  related  to  fluid  flow  in  pipes and in  open channels.  In  this  lab,  the  characteristics  of  pumps  and  turbines  are  also studied.  This  lab  work involves determining the viscosity and mass density of fluids. friction factor, minor loss coefficients, and coefficient of  discharge of  construction  meters,  orifices,  mouthpieces,  notches  and weirs,  characteristics  of  flow profiles  and  hydraulic  jump  and characteristics  of  pumps  and  turbines  and  verification  of  momentum theorem are thereby studied and experimented in the lab. 

7. Environmental Engineering Laboratory: The  objective  of  this  laboratory  is  to  inculcate  among  students  environmental awareness  determine  by making  them  aware  of  qualities  of  water  and  waste  water, quality  of  air  and  noise characteristics.  PH, turbidity, conductivity, and impurities in water and BOD, DO and COD of wastewater and pollution level of air and noise. The aim of this lab is to portrait environmental engineering testing procedures. 

8. Computer Aided Design Laboratory: The Computer aided design Lab provides an environment to the students of Civil engineering an automated way  of  designing  and  drafting  the  structures.  Numerous  software  is available  which  facilitates the numerical work of various calculations and estimations. The software provides inbuilt tools for analysis and design  of structures,  drawing  of  structures,  construction  management, the design of  foundations,  water resources,  transportation  and environmental  management,  remote  sensing  and  Geographical  informationSystem  (GIS)  application.  Software  like  CAD, STADD  PRO,  STRUCK  etc  provides a platform  for  civil engineering innovations by the students.
