Facilities

The civil engineering department has 6 well-equipped laboratories catering to the different disciplines under civil engineering.

1. Basic Civil Workshop
Basic Civil Workshop caters to the curriculum requirements of first year students from all branches. Students are familiarized with setting out of buildings, brick masonry, levelling, area measurements, measurements using screw gauges and vernier callipers and introduction to plumbing and sanitary fittings.

Subject Code & Name : ESL120 Civil Workshop
Lab in charge: Asst.Prof Namitha Joshy

2. Surveying Laboratory
Surveying is one of the basic area in civil engineering which includes linear and angular measurements of relative positions of the points on the surface of the earth. Students learn techniques for gathering field data with both traditional and modern instruments.

List of Equipment’s :
Prismatic Compass
Chain
Plane table and accessories
Dumpy Level
Theodolite
Total Station

4. Environmental Engineering Laboratory

The Environmental Engineering laboratory practical provides good insight into different experimental methods relevant to Environmental Engineering. In this lab, various tests on drinking water and sewage samples to check pH value, total dissolved solids, BOD and COD, total suspended particles etc. are performed as per BIS standard. It helps to assess the water quality standard of the region, pollution load in sewage and working efficiency of sewage and other water treatment unit.
