Facilities and Infrastructure

The department has been furnished with modern equipment and machines as per the requirement of the syllabus of Anna University of Technology, Tiruchirappalli and Anna University, Chennai. In all the laboratories and workshops, skilled technical persons are available at any time to train the students. The budding engineers are encouraged to enrich their knowledge by utilizing the facilities and resources of the department. The civil engineering students are benefited with following Laboratories

SURVEYING LABORATORY

The Surveying Laboratory enables students to understand the basic principles of surveying by conducting field exercises using surveying equipment. Most of the field exercises are conducted outside the laboratory room to gather field survey data using state-of-the-art surveying equipment. Care and proper handling of surveying equipment is also emphasized before, during and after the field survey. To get a good field exposure, the Survey camps are conducted for students which enrich their technical skills.

SOIL MECHANICS LABORATORY

Soil is one of the most important engineering materials. Determination of soil conditions is the most important of work in the first phase for every type of Civil Engineering facility. In this Laboratory, students learn to determine the properties of the Soil by both field and laboratory test methods. During the course work, they are exposed to several laboratory tests that are very commonly performed to determine different properties of soil. These properties are essential for the design of foundation and earth structures.
