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.
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.
The course curriculum includes the study of all the basic engineering sciences as well as professional courses using latest equipments and design software. The course involves planning, analysis, design, construction, and maintenance of a variety of structures such as buildings, highways, railways, waterways,
airports, canals, dam, dock and harbors.
Opportunities exist in both public (PWD, CPWD, Ministry of Railways, etc.) and private sector (TCS, L&T, LANCO, GMR Infra., Nagarjuna Construction, etc.) companies.
He/She should have passed the 10+2 examination conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education or equivalent examination from a recognized board in Science stream with an overall aggregate of 45%.
