CE students augment their technical skills to real working environments

The Dept of CE always provides the students with a chance to meet industry professionals, and entrepreneurs who share their wisdom, learning, and experiences.

To make  a better understanding about  the current and  future scenario of the construction field , an Industrial Visit was arranged  to S5 CE B batch students during 18-20 December 2022.

As per  the curriculum for B Tech Civil Engineering for the courses Design of Hydraulic Structures and Design of Concrete Structures, the students have to learn about the construction practices, minor irrigation and major irrigation structures.  On this ground, with prior permission from authorities, a visit was made to the Pattissery Dam site, Kanthalloor, Idukki. The Pattissery dam –  a composite, gravity dam (concrete, rock fill dam) for irrigation was in the final stages of construction. The technical specification of the dam that include v shape basin, Canal sluice with two spill ways , its height (140m long, 33 m height (major dam) etc were well explained for the students by Mr Issac P George (Assistant Engineer) .

The students were accompanied by the faculty members Ms Seetha Pisharikkel  (Asst  Prof, CE and Ms Vandana V  (Asst  Prof, CE Dept) for their educational tour thereafter which concluded on 20 December 2022.

The Industrial Visit helped the  budding engineers to acquire a better understanding of recent industry trends in the regular curriculum.

Hearty appreciations to all involved !!!
