Surveying laboratory

Surveying labs provide students with hands-on experience to supplement instruction in surveying courses. The introductory course exposes students to the fundamental land surveying methods of traversing and levelling. In addition, this laboratory provides facility to acquaint with sophisticated instruments viz, Electronic total station, Global positioning system (GPS), Autolevels, and Digital planimeter. Students have an opportunity to use the Total Station equipment and conduct survey camps.

Construction Materials Testing Laboratory

Construction Materials Testing Laboratory provides facilities for testing common construction materials and provides opportunities for research in construction materials and their application to engineering problems. The lab focuses on the experimental investigation of following construction materials: concrete and bituminous mixtures, Special cements, light weight aggregates, alternate masonry materials, high tensile steel and timber.Laboratory is also equipped with NDT facilities like Concrete Rebound Test Hammer, Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity tester, Reinforcement Corrosion Analysing Instrument and Cover Meter.

Environmental Engineering Laboratory & Waste water recycling plant

Analysis and testing of water and waste water samples are being regularly done for various agencies. Expertise is available for designing water and waste water treatment plants. Some of the major equipment available are: UV Spectrophotometer, Digital DO meter, Digital Nephlometer, Orbital Shaker and Centrifuge.
