Prof. Shreyas Pande
Civil engineering is the second-oldest Engineering discipline after Military Engineering. Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of physically built works like roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings. Earliest civil engineering works include pyramids in Egypt, Highways by roman engineers, Great Wall of China, Stupas in Sri Lanka, Qanat water management system which is 3000 years old and many more. The notable earliest civil engineering works include aqueducts, harbors, bridges, dams etc., built in several parts of the world. India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Lal Nehru used the term Temples of Modern India while inaugurating Civil Engineering work, Bhakra Nangal Dam which facilitated the progress of India. These structures emphasizes the importance of Civil Engineer. Civil engineers are important to the society as they are often referred as ‘Builders of Nation’.
The Department of Civil Engineering at our institute with its multifaceted faculty maintains its strong links with the construction industry by engaging in consultancy activities. The students here are encouraged to engage extra-curricular and co-curricular activities which are essential for personality development, nurturing of team spirit and development of organizational skills. Our department is committed to provide students with a strong, broad based fundamental engineering education and prepare the students for a career in the industry, teaching and national laboratories.
“BUILD YOUR FUTURE ON FOUNDATION OF EXCELLENCE”

Surveying/ Advanced Surveying
This laboratory provides an opportunity to students to learn about land surveying and measurement methods. Students gain familiarity with Ranging and Fixing of Survey Station, Plotting Building Block by offset with the help of cross staff, to determine the magnetic bearing of a line using surveyors compass, using prismatic compass and measurement and adjustment of included angles of traverse using prismatic compass. This lab also facilitates students about determining the reduced levels and to carry out profile leveling and plot longitudinal and cross sections for road using tilting levels and dumpy levels. Students also get an opportunity to learn to measure horizontal and vertical angles using theodolite, Total Station and determining horizontal and vertical distance by tachometric survey. Student’s conduct Double leveling, contouring, plane tabling etc.
In this lab students determine Grain size distribution by sieving, water content by Pycnometer, specific Gravity by Pycnometer, liquid limit by Casagrandes apparatus, liquid limit by cone penetrometer, plastic limit, shrinkage limit. Students are also being facilitated for determination of field density by core-cutter, Determination of field density by sand replacement method , determination of compaction properties by standard Proctor Test Apparatus, determination of C-Ø values by Direct Shear Test Apparatus , determination of unconfined compressive strength by unconfined compression test apparatus. Students also perform tests to determine the permeability of soil by constant and falling head methods, to determine the CBR of soil and to determine the grain size distribution of fine grained soil by Hydrometer.
Road Material Testing lab provides facilities to students with hands-on experience to Aggregate impact test, Angularity number test, fineness modulus of a given sample of coarse aggregate. The lab is also equipped with the facility for Los angles Abrasion test, Aggregate crushing value test, Standard tar viscometer test , Specific gravity and water absorption test. Further, facility to determine the softening point for give sample of bitumen, Marshall stability test, Float test are also available along with team of experts and well equipped technicians.
