Consultancy Centre

The Civil flgineerng department has good consultancy centre and actively involved in undertaking various types of workspertaining to soil and foundations, cement and concrete tests, steel and building materials, water quality tests and irrigation projects. The services of the consultancy centre are being catering to Private and Government departments.

Engineering Geology Laboratory

Faculty in-Charge

Dr. Muzzamil Ahamed,M.Sc,Ph.D

Associate Professor

The Engineering Geology is offered to Civil Engineering course in 111 and IV Semester. Geology has very wide application in the field of Civil Engineering. It contributes substantially towards the economy and stability of different Civil Engineering projects. Therefore, their stability and safety dpends on the competence of the situ rocks of the sites concerned. This subjects deals with the geotechnical study of the sites and location of major Engineering projects such as Dams, reservoirs, tunnels, roads, and bridges which are indispensable for achieving prosperity and seifreliance.

The Geology museum is well equipped with Minerals, Rocks and other different models related to Civil Engineering to teach laboratory classes.
