CIVIL LABORATORIES

Surveying Lab

The purpose of this laboratory is to teach the art of measuring measurements of the relative positions of the natural and man-made features on the earth’s surface and presenting the information either graphically or numerically. The experiments here are designed to demonstrate the applications of the techniques for the collection of required details in all areas of surveying. This laboratory exercise also provides practice in making engineering judgments, estimates and assessing the reliability of measurements, skills which are very important in all engineering disciplines. The total cost of the laboratory is around 12.5 lakhs.

Environmental Engineering Laboratory

Are you longing for clean beach water, wish to breath pure air, walk in a green and healthy environment? Let us marshal the best of our talents to protect our resources and improve the quality of life. The primary objective of this lab is to demonstrate environmental engineering testing procedures. This lab is continuously upgraded with the latest environmental equipment. It covers the four major pollution areas: air, soil and water contamination. Students contribute through water testing procedures to build a pollution database of the nearby rivers. The purpose of this laboratory is to teach the students the testing of various drinking water and waste water quality parameters such as presence of Chlorides, Sulphates, pH BOD, COD, and Turbidity. Research in the Environmental group includes, but is not limited to, solid waste management, biological nutrient removal, drinking water treatment, membranes and membrane bioreactors, nutrient recovery, contaminated sites, endocrine disrupting compounds, corrosion, composting, dairy waste treatment, and aquifer contamination.
