The department takes active role in arranging expert lectures as well as Industrial visits for benefit of the students. National level student symposium is conducted yearly. Students are encouraged to take up industrial projects. Moreover the students will also be motivated to present papers in student seminars, paper contests etc. Staff members are motivated to present papers in International and National conferences and workshops. The department also conducts guest lectures on latest trends in Civil Engineering. The department has dedicated library for the benefit of the students and staff members. 

The areas of expertise of the faculty members include Finite element analysis, Bio-mineralization in concrete, Remote sensing and GIS, Concrete technology, Structural analysis and design, Computer aided design and drafting, Water resource management etc. 

 

CONCRETE & HIGHWAY LABORATORY

  • This lab is well equipped with all equipments and accessories as per the Anna University Chennai Syllabus.

  • Students are getting practiced from the well experienced teaching and non-teaching staffs.

  • This lab contains large space to do all experiments in the right manner.

We are doing Consultancy works for various private and govt. agencies in and around Coimbatore.

FLUID MECHANICS & HYDRAULICS LABORATORY

  • Students are exposed to do flow experiments and hydraulic machinery experiments in this laboratory.

  • Students are able to compare their theoretical knowledge gained in a class room by doing experiments in the laboratory.

SURVEYING LABORATORY

  • Surveying lab provides with hands on experience to supplement instruction in surveying courses.

  • Students can gain field knowledge about land survey through practical applications.

  • In addition students have opportunities to use total station equipment which enables horizontal, vertical and angular measurements to be made in one operation.

STRENGTH OF MATERIALS LABORATORY

  • The experiments involved in the laboratory make students understand the fundamental modes of loading of the structures

  • The equipment involves measurement of loads, displacements and strains.

  • The strength of the material and stiffness properties of structural elements are studied by the students to enhance practical exposure.

SOIL MECHANICS LABORATORY

  • The Soil Mechanics laboratory covers an area of 120 sq.m.

  • It meets the requirements of UG programme and research.

  • Consultancy activities are also being carried out. Some of the equipment’s used for consultancy in the field are Sieve Set; Direct Shear Testing, Tri axial Shear Testing Equipment etc..,
