FDP on Product Development of an IoT Device
Department of Civil Engineering, Mar Baselios College of Engineering and Technology Nalanchira, Trivandrum, in association with APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University Kerala is organizing a Faculty Development Programme on "Product Development of anloT Device" during 26th to 29th of July 2017.
The programme is open to all faculty members (any stream). Number of participants are limited to fifty. Register at the earliest to ensure your seat.
Utbhav is the annual technical fest of the Department of Civil Engineering, MBCET. Over the years, Utbhav has witnessed students pouring in from all parts of India, thronging to participate in the various events conducted. The events test the skills vital for the civil engineer of today, right from technical aptitude to managerial skills.
Utbhav '16 comes with the motto ' VAISHVIK LAKSHYAH ' [ Global Goals ] -BUILD WITH EARTH. The event is conducted on 26 th of February. The event is based upon the United Nations 15 year plan named Global Goals-for sustainable development. The Global Goals aims to achieve 3 extra ordinary things in the next 15 years ; end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, fix climatic changes for which 17 goals has been set up by the UN. Out of which 8 goals are chosen to analyse,implement and publicize in a regional level. the outcome of the programme is to achieve solution to problems that hinder sustainable social development and bring about socially committed engineers.
Utbhav '16 events are:
Best Engineer - ''Bolt it and Nail it''
Symposium - ''Show us ingenious mind''
Nirmaan [ Model Making ]- ''Add dimensions to your ideas''
Imagica [ CADD Event ] - ''Bringing imaginations to real world''
Black Pearl Quest [ Treassure Hunt ] - ''Winner takes it all''
Industrial Visit (Seventh Semester) The seventh semester Civil engineering students went on an industrial visit from 12th to 20th of December 2015. The sites for the visits were Bengaluru and Hampi. The industries that were visited include
The Water Treatment Plant at Wonder La, Bengaluru: Here the students were given an exposure to the various processes which were carried out during the water treatment.
Traffic management Centre, Bengaluru: The students were shown how the authority monitored the city’s traffic and a seminar was conducted on traffic safety. A senior staff addressed the students and gave a lecture on the accidents that were caused due to negligence and rash driving. Various cases of accidents were shown and awareness was given to the students on safe driving.
Hampi: The students visited the various temples and other historical monuments that were built during the reign of various kings. They got a feel of the historical architecture and construction methodology that were prevalent during those times.
How to kick-start a career in Civil Engineering construction industry
Talk on “How to kick-start a career in Civil Engineering construction industry” by Mr. S. N. Raghuchandran Nair, Managing Director, SI Property (Kerala) Pvt. Ltd. on 19th of September 2015.
Archbishop Benedict Mar Gregorios Centenary Celebrations
The Department of Civil Engineering in association with COSTFORD conducted a Workshop on “The Vision of Archbishop Benedict Mar Gregorios on Sustainable Development and His association with Padmashree Laurie Baker” in connection with the centenary celebrations of Archbishop Benedict Mar Gregorios’ on 11th September 2015. Rev. Dr. Samuel Mar Irenios was present to grace the occasion. Commemorative lectures include lecture on “Cost effective construction aspects” by Shri. P. B. Sajan, Joint Director, COSTFORD and lecture on “Laurie Baker’s philosophy on cost effective construction” Shri. R.D.Padmakumar, Architect, COSTFORD. The afternoon session included hands-on training for the students. A photo exhibition was arranged in the lobby.
Industrial Visit (Fifth Semester)
The fifth semester B.Tech Civil Engineering students were taken for an industrial visit from 17 to 25th of August 2015 to Bangalore and Hyderabad. In Wonder La, an amusement theme park in Bangalore an official explained to them the working and parts and processes of their Sewage treatment plant. They also attended Geological Survey of India, Bangalore where they were shown geological samples and photogrammetric surveying and attended a lecture by an official regarding the influence of rock formation in the construction of structures such as dams. They also had the opportunity of visiting Traffic Management Center Bangalore, a where they learnt the basics of signal designing and traffic control of the urban city.
A short term course on the final phase in metamorphosis of civil engineering students was conducted for the outgoing Civil Engineering students during 19 to 23rd of May 2015. One can very well foresee the frustration of the fresh engineering graduates when they enter into the professional field. They may not be in a position to correlate what they grasp in the class and what they have to deliver in the field. The programme under this short term course was devised to have a smooth transition from the class room to the field of work. It is so planned to familiarize them with different demanding sectors of Civil Engineering profession. In conclusion all engineering students with Civil Engineering background can make the best use of the lectures delivered by eminent personalities with hands on experience in the field of Civil Engineering and grasp the practical side from the field trips and site visits arranged.
The second ‘National Seminar on Advances in Structural Engineering (NASE 2014-‘15)’, was held during 13th and 14th, January 2015.
