Vision: To develop the Department into a full-fledged centre of learning in various fields of Civil Engineering, keeping in view of the latest academic and construction developments. Mission: The mission of the Department is to provide an academic environment that will ensure high quality education, training and research by keeping them abreast of latest developments in the field of civil Engineering aimed at promoting employability, leadership qualities with humanity, ethics, research aptitude and team spirit. To provide growing needs of sustainable infrastructure development. To provide technical advice and support to the industry.
Computer Aided Drafting is a process of preparing a drawing of an object on the screen of a computer. There are various types of drawings in different fields of engineering and sciences. In the field of civil engineering, plans and layouts of the buildings are prepared. The use of CAD process provides enhanced graphics capabilities which allows any designer to Conceptualize his ideas Modify the design very easily Perform animation Make design calculations Use colors, fonts and other aesthetic features
Civil engineers play a crucial role in accurately surveying the Earth's surface to collect required data for the planning and design of various engineering ventures, including the construction of buildings, highways, and irrigation projects. They also contribute to the excavation of tunnels and are essential in almost every facet of civil engineering. Surveying involves the skilful determination of the relative positions of various objects on Earth's surface by measuring both the horizontal distances between them and the vertical angles, whether in elevation or depression. The gathered observations are then refined and charted on paper to create a map in an appropriate scale. Consequently, this discipline encompasses measurements taken in both the horizontal and vertical planes.
The Hydraulics Laboratory is a state-of-the art facility used to conduct a variety of experiments pertaining to water. This laboratory provides a means of testing the hydraulic properties related to Notches, orifice and Mouthpieces. In hydraulics laboratory there is a range of experimental set-ups through which students are given a very good demonstration to understand the various methods of measurement of flow rates, capacity & velocity of water in tanks, closed pipes and open channels.
Material Testing Laboratory
Civil engineering plays a crucial role in shaping the modern world by constructing infrastructure that facilitates our daily lives. But behind every sturdy structure lies a fundamental aspect that determines its strength and durability from material testing. Our Material testing laboratory is well equipped laboratory with 810 sq.feet in Government polytechnic pillaripattu, which provides ideas on the practical knowledge of test several properties of building material. From assessing mechanical and physical properties of concrete, steel, aggregates, cement, bricks, soil etc., to ensure reliability and safety in construction process.
