  B.Tech.

     The B.Tech. courses in Civil Engineering are broad based designed to introduce students to a wide range of problems encountered in the field. A large number of electives subjects are offered to enable a student to study the areas of his special interest, in depth. The main areas with which students are made familiar are:


     Electives

     For students belonging to disciplines other than Civil Engg., the following electives are offered in
     the 7th and 8th semesters:


     M.Tech. Degree


     Admissions are made to M.Tech. degree courses in Civil Engineering in the following three
     specialisations:

Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering (Geotechnology)
     This course has been designed to provide the students with a higher degree of competence in designing and constructing independently, major Civil Engineering works involving the use of advanced theorectical and applied applied knowledge of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering. Instructions are imparted to cover the field of Geotechnology but special emphasis is laid on Rock Mechanics coverin the behaviour of rocks in the field as well as the study of properties of rocks in the laboratory.
   

Structural Engineering & Constructional Techniques
     This course has been developed to provide the students with a mathematical and practical background on the analysis, design and construction of modern structures. Along with this, the students are made conversant with the recent developments in the field of construction materials, design methods and techniques of construction.Special emphasis is laid on concrete technology, composite materials and analysis and design of steel and concrete structures.

Water Resources Engineering
     The course has been developed and designed with the aim to impart training in the various areas of Water Resources Engineering such as water resources planning and system engineering, surface and ground water hydrology, design of hydraulic structures atc. so as to develop the competence of the students to tacle the complex problems of water resources engineering in various organisations of State Governments as well as National Organisations of repute.

   Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

     Facilities for research areoffered by the department on approved topics leading to the degree of Doctor of Philsophy. 12 faculty members are registered to Ph.D. programmes.

    Laboratory Facilities

     The department has excellent laboratory facilities for conducting experimental work by both under-
     graduate and post-graduate students. The major laboratories are:

     * Soil Mechanics
     * Foundation Engineering
     * Rock Mechanics
     * Structural Engineering
     * Concrete Technology
     * Fluid Mechanics
     * Irrigation Engineering
     * Surveying
     * Highway Engineering
     * Public Health Engineering
     * Geology
     A computer laboratory has been set up. The computer laboratory has been strengthened with the procurement of more computers.

Research Facilities
     In addition to normal facilities, latest and precise equipment is available for conducting advanced      research in Rock Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Water Resources Engg., Structural Engg. and Environmental Engg.

A large number of post-graduate students take up various experimental works for their dissertation utilizing these facilities.

The department is equipped with a high pressure triaxial testing system, load and displacement transducer, field testing units, rock cutting equipments and facilities for conducting research under controlled temperature for long periods of time. A large number of electronic instruments are also available for precision measurements.

Facilities are also available for conducting advanced research in the field of Concrete and Structural Engineering on the following topics. The facility of non-destructive testing of concrete is also available with the concrete lab.

The irrigation and hydraulics Laboratory is well equipped for undertaking research works in varied problems of Hydraulic Engineering. Hydraulic testing facilities have been created for models testing of barrages, river models and other hydraulic structures.

Laboratory facilities also exist for model tests for design of stilling basins for low and high Froude Numbers for outlet works. The laboratory has got two tilting bed flumes to undertake research in the area of sediment transport and hydraulic structures.

Research work in the areas of package plants for treatment of waste water and aeration techniques is being conducted in Public Health Engg. Laboratory.


Water Resources Management Center
The department has a well-established Water Resources Management centre which conducts research work in the fields of water resources assessment, management, design of hydraulic structures and short-term courses for field engineers.

Consultancy/lndustrial Collaboration

Facilities exist for providing consultancy of advice in the following:


Miscellaneous Facilities

The Rock Mechanics Unit has facilities for conducting field loading test (plate load test, flat jack test, rock drilling etc.) for various purposes involving the estimation of the strength of rocks.

The department workshop is well equipped for the fabrication of special equipment, apparatus and various models. A large number of items of equipment have been designed and fabricated by the department. Some of these are sophisticated nature and can be used for accurate measurements in research. A few of the important items fabricated are:
