College CET CODE E112

The economic growth of any country is directly proportional to its infrastructure development. Expansion and improvements of infrastructure facilities will give a big impetus to the growth of economy. With our beloved PM aiming at a 5 trillion economy by 2025, greater emphasis is on infrastructure development which in turn will facilitate achieving the target. At the core of infrastructure development is the role of civil engineering. Civil engineers are at the helm of affairs in nation building. We design, construct and maintain infrastructure systems like road ways, waterways, airways, water treatment plants, sewage treatment plants, agricultural infrastructure like dams, canal systems, urban infrastructure systems like metros, flyovers, housing, commercial and public buildings, sports complexes, etc.,

The department of civil engineering has the right eco system to churn out quality civil engineers with high employability quotient. Young motivated and passionate faculty team of the department is adopting the best academic delivery systems to enhance the learning abilities of the students. The department has a well structured civil engineering skill development program for students in all higher semesters. This program focuses on imparting practical and industry related skills to make our students employable. The dept has a well established consultancy and training center, where students will get involved in real time design of civil engineering projects, which gives them the confidence to take responsibility in the design and detailing of projects.

Qualified and skilled civil engineers have extensive opportunities to get into central and state public work depts, administrative services, central and state departments where there are constructions happening,railways, consultancy, constructions, manufacturing of civil engg construction materials, project management, higher studies, Ready Mix Concrete plants, etc.,

Choosing civil engineering as a profession makes greater sense now, which opens up tremendous potential to have a great and successful career and become a dominant partner in nation building.

Department of Civil Engineering organized an Alumni talk on Recent trends in Civil Engineering and Cost effective solution. The event was addressed by the Alumni Mr. Hanumantha T, it was held in C-001, C Block, SKIT. Students came to know about the things happening in the Industry.

Extensive survey camp-2022-23

Surveying has played an important role in human technologies, especially in construction. Without surveying, human could not acquire a lot of useful information such as distance, bearing, elevation and so on. With this useful information, strategic and planned boundaries could be build.

This survey camp is intended to provide students of 2nd year to carry out field practical engineering survey using Total Station. As per the curriculum for the students of civil engineering they were been taken to kiavara chikkabalapura district for 7 days which consisted of different projects like New tank project, old tank project, highway alignment and water supply project and town planning.

A Detailed Report of Field Visit to Composite Cost-Effective Building at Malleshwaram

Visit to a composite cost-effective building construction site. To get an understanding how the theoretical Knowledge is fitted in practice. To gain experience in building material science. Another most important thing there observed was the bricks used for construction is less in weight in which a single person can lift it easily. This weight less brick is made up of cement mixed with wood dust which gives good strength and less weight. The main reason to use this is to reduce the self weight or dead weight of the structure. The main reason for choosing this site particularly at malleshwaram was, the building under construction there is a composite (combination of steel and RCC) cost-effective building. By using composite concept, cost of the construction is reduced by 10% and time is saved by 30% compared to normal construction. Example use of steel C channels, steeled angle sections, nuts and bolts.

An Industrial visit to "Municipal Solid Waste Processing Plant" at Doddabidarekallu

The Department of Civil Engineering organized a Site visit to SWM plant, the students of 4th and 6th semester were taken to the plant to get exposed to the practical knowledge of the procedure. The visit was Coordinated by Ramya A V and Vishwa Pavan S, Assistant professors, Department of Civil Engineering, SKIT. In order to get the practical knowledge about Solid waste management. Reducing the amount of materials in landfills and promoting conditions that make it possible to return to industries as raw material is one of the premises of PNRS, reducing environmental impacts and pollution risks and promoting the circular economy. Minimize the Production of Waste. Proper management practices help minimize the garbage and scraps that need handling. Nearly 120 tons of municipal waste is being converted to organic manure which is around 4mm size.
