About

About

Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the engineering branches. It is the branch with a lot of diversity from geotechnical sciences to structural engineering, environmental to hydraulics, transportation to hydrology. Civil Engineering (CE) can be considered as a single largest branch among all the engineering branches that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil Engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners to international companies.

The course leading to a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering was started in the year 2010 (from the inception of the Institution) with intake of 60 students and Two batches passed out. Placement through campus interview is more than 70%.

The department of Civil Engineering is very strong and it has highly qualified and research oriented faculty. This department is working on the concept that besides classroom teaching, exposure should be given to the modern construction technology, high rise buildings and long span bridges.

This objective is fulfilled by organizing field visits. The department also arranges expert lectures from the experienced techno craft from various organizations and institutes of repute.

Civil Engineering is fundamentally a social activity. In the practice of Civil Engineering, we are aware of this, and that is why it is right for us to insist on clarity and intelligibility. We have a specific goal and vision of developing the department into a full-fledged learning center for conceptual knowledge. The department is geared to translate its vision into deeds, by producing quality technocrats with inbuilt character of commitment and hardworking who can interpret and implement the knowledge acquired for the development of society; by organizing national seminars and workshops to expose the students and staff; by improving teaching learning process by supplementing the regular class room instruction with teaching aids such as LCD projector; by conducting technical seminars & group discussions on a continuous basis to enhance knowledge as well as COMMUNICATION skills; by involving faculty in both research and consultancy activities, by encouraging the faculty to update their knowledge in both academic and practical fields by sending them to various conferences, workshops, seminars and through industrial training during vacation. Teaching is done in an industry-specific way, which enables them to adapt the work-culture of industries easily. The department library, models, charts and video lectures on various topics add to the department resources and make the teaching learning process more effective.

Concrete Lab

Description of the Lab:

Materials testing are the process of pulling, bending, twisting, turning, hitting, and squeezing materials or components to make sure they withstand the intense stresses, strains and impact forces they are
likely to experience in use and application. In other words, materials’ testing examines the overall strength, toughness, flexibility, suitability and fitness for purpose. Compression and tensile testing are the oldest and most common materials tests performed. Concrete has relatively high compressive strength, but significantly lower tensile
strength, and as such is usually reinforced with materials that are strong in tension. Compressive strength of concrete can be determined in this lab using Compression testing machine. Nondestructive testing can be done with the help of Rebound Hammer. Concrete can also be prestressed (reducing tensile stress) using internal steel cables (tendons), allowing for beams or slabs with a longer span than is practical with reinforced concrete alone. Inspection of concrete structures can be non-destructive if carried out with equipment such as a Schmidt hammer, which is used to estimate concrete strength.

B. PANCHET DAM VISIT to Understand Geology Data and Hydraulic Structure

Aim/Objective

Educational visit was conducted for the 5th semester students of Civil Engineering department at Panchet Dam during October 19-21, 2014. The Dam lies on Damodar river 5 kms upstream at the confluence of Barakar and Damodar rivers and at the western fringe of Raniganj Coalfield in West Bengal. The reservoir has been constructed with multipurpose objectives for the benefits of the mankind & hence they need to be monitored regularly. Satellite remote sensing data is an effective tool in such overview monitoring study. It provides and synoptic view of the whole area in multispectral mode in different times of the year. Various aspects of the Panchet reservoir, such as temporal variation in reservoir water levels, images in various bands and its colour composite can be monitored by satellite remote sensing methodology. The visit was arranged for the students to have a physical idea about the behavior of rocks below the surface of the earth. Geological factors below the ground may affect the design, construction, operation and site selection of any project work especially for dams. Geological maps also explained to understand the history of rock formation in particular strata.
