Survey camp and practical training which are part of the curriculum, aim to exposing the students to actual field problems. Laboratory experiments, computer aided analysis, design & drawing and the tutorial classes are held to build confidence in the students.
The Department is well equipped with laboratories related to Structure, Concrete testing, Soil Mechanics, Highway Engineering, Experimental stress Analysis, Environmental Engineering and Hydraulics laboratories. The Department undertakes to organize special lectures and discussion by eminent persons from the field and industry.
