Introduction

Civil Engineers play a vital role in creating the man-made environment and in protecting the natural environment, bringing together science and art to create much of the tangible fabric of today’s society. They plan, design, construct, maintain, and manage airports, bridges, tunnels, buildings, harbour facilities, dams, highways, waterways, pipelines, sanitation systems, and other aspects of the built environment. The field of civil engineering is about community service, development and improvement, planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities essential to modern life.

Graduates of the Civil Engineering program may work as construction, environmental, geotechnical, hydraulic, structural, transportation, or water resource engineers. Students are taught to apply state-of-the-art computer technologies to the solution of problems in these areas, ensuring that graduates are well-prepared to contribute to the betterment of tomorrow’s society.

The department has seven state-of-the-art laboratories. The department undertakes sponsored research and industrial consultancy

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

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.

A civil engineering degree prepares a professional to work in various engineering areas, from construction to communications, infrastructure etc. Civil engineers are involved with the design, development and construction of a huge range of projects in the built and natural environment. Their role is central to ensuring the safe, timely and well-resourced completion of projects in many areas, including highway construction, waste management, coastal development and geotechnical engineering. Consulting civil engineers liaise with clients to plan, manage, design and supervise the construction of projects. As contracting civil engineers, they turn the plans of consulting civil engineers (designers) into reality. . A Civil Engineering degree would be of great value in operational management, supply chain management, procurement, intellectual property, and logistics and after-sales management also.

Concrete Laboratory

          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.  Non-destructive 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.

Survey Laboratoey

           Description of the Lab:

Surveying is the process by which a surveyor measures certain dimensions that generally occur on the surface of the Earth. Surveying equipment, such as levels and theodolite, are used for accurate measurement of angular deviation, horizontal, vertical and slope distances. With computerization, electronic distance measurement (EDM), total stations, GPS surveying and laser scanning have supplemented the traditional optical instruments. This information is very important to convert the data into a graphical representation of the Earth's surface, in the form of a map. This information is then used by civil engineers and contractors to design from, build on, and trade, respectively. Elements of a building or structure must be correctly sized and positioned in relation to each other and to site boundaries and adjacent structures.

Events and Activities

Sustainable Development, Engineering & Construction in the field of Civil Engineering

  • Preface –

Sustainability is defined the desire to perform activities without any depletion of resources or bringing any harmful effect on the environment. Practicing sustainable construction methods will help avoiding harmful effects from construction activities. Construction involves activities like use of building materials from various sources, use of machineries, demolition of existing structures, use of green fields, cutting down of tress etc. which can impact environment in one or more ways. Civil engineering field being the major part of the economy, it is very essential that sustainable construction practice dominate the past followed conventional construction practice and methods. Sustainability assessment of construction projects is essential to the fact that it does not create any harmful effects on the living ecosystem while optimizing the cost of construction. This is to ensure the availability of resources for the future generations.

  • Acknowledgement –

All members of the Civil Engineering department of Omdayal Group of Institutions and the students of the department have committed their sincere effort towards the success of the event but especially we would like to thank Prof. Gautam Bondyopadhyay and Prof. Kamrul Alam to coordinate the program.

Subsequently, Prof. Gautam Bondyopadhyay and Prof. Suprovat Chattopadhyay visited the site on 20th of December, 2017 to study the problem further. Detailed report with Remedial Solution was submitted to M/S SINTEX on 23/12/2017.

9. Future plans  in next academic session.

A 36 Hrs software training programme on ETABS software will be introduced in training for the students of Civil Engineering Department for career advancements. It is the ultimate integrated software package for the structural analysis and design of buildings. From the start of design conception through the production of schematic drawings, ETABS integrates every aspect of the engineering design process. An introductory seminar on “ETABS software training” has been already arranged by Civil Engineering Dept. with the help of Shaurya Innovation (OPC) Pvt. Ltd. on 26th April 2018 for the interested students.

Another workshop on “Microsoft Project Management” or “Primavera” software can also be conducted in next academic session. These softwares are required to assist a project manager in developing a plan, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing the budget, and analyzing workloads.

CAREER PROSPECTS:

The degree holders of civil engineering plan design and supervise construction of facilities essential to modern life. These facilities vary widely in nature, size and scope including space satellites and launching facilities, offshore drilling structures, bridges, buildings, highways and other transport systems, tunnels, airport, dams, harbors and other infrastructure. A civil engineering degree prepares you to work in various engineering areas, from construction to COMMUNICATIONS infrastructure. Today’s civil engineers face the challenge of creating structures which at times seen to defy gravity, defy engineering science and even defy logic. Yet, these amazing structures are firmly based in scientific principle; seeming to bend scientific laws to meet the needs of the Architecture. Roles are available in both engineering organizations and other industries. Civil Engineering (CE) graduates are also valued in commercial and corporate sectors such as finance, banking and accountancy.

As mankind strives to build bigger buildings, utilizing living and working space better, civil engineers will face new challenges in making structures which are stronger, more resistant to natural disaster and have greater capacities. This is a growing field, where the challenges are increasing as mankind stretches the envelope of our existing materials science.

 

 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:

  • Construction Engineering - Construction engineers plan executes and manages the designs from structural, transportation and environmental engineers.
  • Structural Engineering- Structural engineers design all types of structures like multistoried buildings, bridges, towers etc.
