Civil Engineering

Introduction

Civil Engineering course plays a vital role as the engineers create the man-made environment and in protect the natural environment, bringing together science and art to create much of the tangible fabric of today’s society. The civil engineers 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 from best civil engineering colleges in West Bengal 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 of Civil Engineering has seven state-of-the-art laboratories and undertakes sponsored research and industrial consultancy.

Their objective is fulfilled by organizing field visits, organizing national seminars and workshop. The Civil Engineering Department also arranges expert lectures from the experienced technocrat from various organizations and institutes of repute.

Teaching for Civil Engineering course 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 from best civil engineering colleges in West Bengal 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 from best civil engineering colleges in West Bengal would be of great value in operational management, supply chain management, procurement, intellectual property, and logistics and after-sales management also.

Infrastructure

Laboratory Facilities: The Department of Civil Engineering has 7 fully equipped state-of-the-art laboratories and 1 laboratory (Water Resource Lab) installation under progress, supervised by experienced faculty members.

Concrete

Concrete Laboratory

Description of the Lab:

Materials testing is 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, testing of materials 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 laboratory using Compression testing machine. Non-destructive testing can be done with the help of Rebound Hammer. Concrete can also be pre-stressed (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

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.

A civil engineering degree from best civil engineering colleges in West Bengal 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 from best civil engineering colleges in West Bengal 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.
