Lab Facilities

Survey Lab

The laboratory provides intensive practical exposure to the students in the field of survey. To measure the land area, preparation of map, elevation of point, setting out works by practical work. Practical experiments in chaining, compass, plane table, leveling and theodolite will give experience in handling surveying equipments and help in civil engineering career. To be exposed to testing of different materials under the action of various forces and to determine the characteristics experimentally.

Strength of Material Lab

The lab is intended to learn the properties of different materials like steel, concrete, timber, bricks and other materials. Study of different structural elements by conducting different tests like tension, compression, torsion, impact, shear, bending and hardness tests helps the students to develop their  skills.

Concrete and Highway Lab

The laboratory provides intensive practical exposure to the students in the field of construction. To understand and perform various tests on cement, aggregates and concrete. Tests on cement as per IS codes of practice, tests on fine and coarse aggregates according to IS codes of Practice, tests on fresh and hardened concrete as per IS codes of practice provides the practical knowledge.

Soil Mechanics Lab

The aim of this laboratory is to provide the hands on training in determination of Engineering and index properties of soils, applied in field problems. Familiarize the students to do the experiments as per the guidelines of BIS and provides the knowledge on the use of experimental results pertaining to foundation problems.

Fluid Mechanics Lab

To get exposure about the function of various hydraulic equipment. To learn the aim, working principle, components, function of hydraulic equipment, to get hand-on experience in the operation of hydraulic equipment.

Environmental Engineering Lab

The aim of this laboratory to get exposure about water and sewage analysis. To analyze water and sewage volumetrically and using certain equipment, To learn to prepare reagents for each experiment, To get hand-on experience in the operation of equipment like pH meter, TDS meter, turbidity meter, etc. To study to take observations after each titration, To study to do calculations and interpret the results obtained using IS specification for drinking water and waste water (IS 10500-1963 and IS 2490).
