RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

The department has done a lot of research work over the years. The department has developed concrete with bottom ash and waste materials from thermal power plants. It has also developed concrete using construction debris in place of granite stones. It has investigated the energy absorption capacity of hollow circular sections filled with concrete using fly ash as well as quarry dust.
 
The department has developed soil blocks made with locally available materials like, earth, scrap of iron, thermacol which can be used as regular bricks. The great advantage of this product is that it does not require any energy in the manufacturing process.
  • Technical papers are published in various areas of Civil Engineering.
  • Number of papers are published in national conferences and international conferences.
  • Consultancy services are provided by the faculty members for various agencies.
  • Testing of construction materials are provided.

Thrust Areas of Research

ASSOCIATIONS & ACTIVITIES

The department of Civil Engineering was started in the year of 2002, with a sanctioned intake of 90 students. Since its inception, the department has had the vision to train student in civil engineering to instill quality & capacity in them to think, design & construct a safe habitat to create a better environment for the common man to lead a quality life. The Department also aims at moulding the students in a better way so as to face the present challenges in the industry by introduction industry � oriented academic courses.
To fullfill the above, the department started Association of Civil Engineering to execute all the events conducted for the students. The events are categorised in to Guest Lecture, Technical Talk, National Seminar, International Seminar, Symposium, Certificate Training Program, Faculty Development Program, National Conference, International Conference, National Day Celebration, Alumni Lecture and Corporate Social Responsibility Events for the benefits of Student, Faculty, Alumni, Staff and General Public.
