LABORATORY FACILITIES OF CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT


The department has excellent laboratory facilities with latest and new equipment. We have well trained laboratory staff assisting our highly qualified and experienced teaching faculty in conducting the labs. There are nine laboratories in the department out of which seven laboratories are for academic purpose these are Material Testing Laboratory, Survey Laboratory, CADD Laboratory, Applied Engineering Geology Laboratory, Geo-technical Engineering laboratory, Concrete Technology Laboratory, Highway Materials Testing Laboratory, Environmental Laboratory and Structural Dynamics Laboratory,theother two laboratories used for academic and research purposes these are Concrete Technology Laboratory and Environmental Engineering Laboratory.
The Civil Engineering department also has many design and drafting software packages available in academic labs including CAD, STAAD pro, ETabs and Ansys
Basic Material Testing Laboratory was established inApril 2011. The Laboratory has equipments and facilities to cater to the needs of students to get hands on experience on testing of materials like tiles, aggregates, concrete blocks and bricks.The laboratory is extensively used by III semester Btech students as a part of curriculum also by final year Btech and Mtech students for their projects.

The students will be able to independently perform tests to find out various properties of materials by acquaintance of this lab.
Skills acquired by students: Quality control and Assurance of materials.
Survey Laboratory was established inApril 2011. The Laboratory has all the latest and advanced instruments which can be used by students in getting acquaintance of survey works. Total Station the newly procured equipment in 2013 is state of the art, which meets the industry standards. This laboratory is extensively used by Btech students of III, IV and VI semester.
