Application of Civil Engineering concepts to solve Civil Engineering problems using modern tools and techniques.


Identify and recommend alternative Engineering methods and materials for sustainable development

1. Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

2. Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

3. Design/development of Solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

4. Conduct Investigations of Complex Problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

5. Modern Tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

6. The Engineer and Society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.

7. Environment and Sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.

8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.

9. Individual and Team Work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.

10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

11. Project Management and Finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.

12. Life-long Learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.


CAD stands for Computer Aided Design. CAD is used to design, develop and optimize products. While it is very versatile, CAD is extensively used in the design of tools and equipment required in the manufacturing process as well as in the construction domain. CAD enables design engineers to layout and to develop their work on a computer screen, print and save it for future editing. In Civil department High-end computer facilities and licensed CAD software’s are available to students.
BMT lab provides facilities to conduct various tests to calculate properties of the steel specimens. Since steel of various grades is used as main reinforcement material in most of the structures, so knowledge gained in this lab is imperative for proper understanding of the advance courses on design of steel/concrete structures. Major equipment in this lab includes Universal Testing Machine, torsion testing machine, impact testing machine, Brinell hardness testing machine, Rockwell hardness testing machine.
The Surveying Laboratory is established with the purpose of enabling students to practice land surveying techniques using a wide spectrum of surveying equipment ranging from prismatic compass, dumpy levels, auto levels and theodolites to the latest electronic total stations with data collectors and digital GPS equipment. The laboratory provides facilities for linear, space and angular measurements in the field.
The Environmental lab is fully equipped with advanced equipments to check various impurities present in water in the form of dissolved components and solvents in the form of salts, chemicals as well as alkalies or alkalinities. The lab has potential for carrying out research and consultancy work for various projects related to the environment. With the addition of new Sound level meter, Flame photometer, SPM – High Volume sampler, BOD incubator, COD Digestor, Hot air oven, Muffle Furnace and UV Spectrophotometer, this lab has become the most advanced environment testing laboratory.
The objective this lab is to check the basic properties of soil of a certain area that is to be used for construction purpose. Soil properties include Atterbergs limits, bearing capacity, liquid limit, plastic limit, moisture content, etc. The lab is equipped with equipments like: casagrande appatatus, direct shear apparatus, triaxial test apparatus, unconfined compression test apparatus, standard proctor test apparatus, grain size analysis test apparatus, permeability test apparatus etc.
The concrete technology lab is established to train students to carry out tests on common construction materials such as concrete, cement, tiles etc. The tests are conducted to determine the engineering properties in terms of strength, strain, fatigue, creep, elasticity, stiffness durability, and workability. Major equipment includes digital compression testing machine with flexural strength calculation attachment, standard test sieves (coarse and fine sets) with sieve shaking machine, (slump test, compaction factor and Vee-Bee time apparatus).
The objective of this laboratory is to determine the various parameters related to fluid flow in pipes and in open channels. At present it is equipped with hydraulic benches & various stand-alone equipment to carry out experiments like verification of the Bernoulli’s energy equation, determination of coefficient of discharge for venturimeter &orifice meter, determination of discharge coefficient for various notches, determination of hydraulic coefficients for flow through an orifice, determination of friction coefficient for pipes of various diameters, impact of jets on flat, Inclined & semi-circular vanes and calculation of minor head losses in pipes. The laboratory also houses Pelton Wheel Turbine, Kaplan Turbine, Francis Turbine, Centrifugal pump and Reciprocatory pump.
The objective of structural analysis laboratory is to determine the forces, stresses, deflections and behaviour of various structural members like beams, columns, arches, trusses and frames when subjected to different types of loadings. Advanced structural laboratory was established with state of art facilities with NDT and advanced equipment’s especially for research and post graduate programmes. The major equipment are Proceq make original Schmidt concrete test hammer (type N), Pundit Lab + Ultrasonic Testing Instrument, Concrete Mixer (Pan type, 40 litre capacity), Concrete Permeability test apparatus with compressor (20kg/cm2), Longitudinal Compressor meter (Digital), Digital compressor testing machine 300T, Lateral Extensometer – Digital, Steam curing tank with 6 cubes of 150mm capacity with compressor, Rapid chloride penetration test, etc.
