The department has 6 self controlled laboratories, 3 shared laboratory with mechanical department and one laboratory with H&S department. All of the laboratories in the department are fully equipped with national level competent equipments so as to provide required resources to carry out in house projects for the students as well as R & D activities
The surveying Laboratory has a wide variety of modern surveying equipment, such as GPS based equipment, Total Station, Digital Theodolite, Automatic levels and Prismatic Compass for basic instructional and research purposes. Under graduate students use the laboratory as an integral part of surveying in any topographic information. That can help their design projects such as land developments and transportation designs for safety measures.
AutoCAD is used to create the computer aided designs or software applications including drafting. AutoCAD develops the application in both the 2D and 3D formats and provide the information to the application. AutoCAD provides tools to design the softwares used in the industry, architectures and project management. It provides an easy way to design the software with the designs and architect it according to the need.
Transportation engineering lab is useful to the students in gaining practical knowledge about various test that are to be conducted on the materials used before the construction of a road to find various parameters like strength, capacity, type of road etc.
The purpose of training in soils laboratories is to provide an opportunity to the students to work with various types of soils with the objective of identifying the soils by performing index property tests such as visual identification, moisture content, Atterberg Limits, and grain-size distribution, and understanding the behavior of typical soils by performing laboratory tests such as permeability, unconfined compression, direct shear, compaction, and consolidation.
Engineering geology is the application of the geological sciences to engineering projects. It is aimed at studying the geology of an area for the purpose of assuring that the geological factors regarding the location, design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineering works, are perfect for the project implementation
The objective of the strength of materials lab is to demonstrate the basic principles in the area of strength and mechanics of materials to the undergraduate students through a series of experiments. In this lab the experiments are performed to measure the properties of the materials such as impact strength, tensile strength, compressive strength, hardness, ductility etc.
The objective of this laboratory is to determine the various parameters related to fluid flow in pipes and in open channels. In this lab experiments performed are verification of the Bernoulli’s energy equation, study of transition from laminar to turbulent flow, determination of velocity profile for pipeline flow, determination of coefficient of discharge for obstruction flow meter(venturimeter/orifice meter), determination of discharge coefficient for various notches, determination of hydraulic coefficients for flow through an orifice, determination of friction coefficient for pipes of various diameters and calculation of minor head losses in pipes.
The specific objective of the hydraulics laboratory course are to provide the students with an opportunity to explore the fundamental principles of fluid machines through experimentation and investigate engineering design principles for pipe networks, open channel systems and ground water regimes.
Environmental engineering lab is also known as public health engineering lab which is essential to maintain good health of people. In this lab water been tested to depict physical, chemical, biological characteristics of water and sewage properties will be tested.
