Civil Department on Build Intec 2018

February 05, 2018 was not an ordinary day. It was a blend of part learning and part application of leadership and organizational skills that we have learnt over years, which lead to a fruitful visit to Build Intech, 2018 at Codissia Trade Complex, Coimbatore. It was organized by students of Civil Engineering, third year (section C), dived deeper for encouraging students to be a part of it and were able to unite more than 120 participants from both second and third year.

The event had a huge collection of innovative products and ideas of different companies, indeed an outcome of immense hard work and creativity which given. Each of the project presented over there were very unique from the others whether it be in terms of method or be its application. Being able to see those ovativeness and passion towards work, indeed taught the very of us to think out of the box in more distinguishing way. Nearly 250 companies displayed their unique product and profiles. Those creative products and most of all, the ideas, presented in the event were worth not less than millions for future engineers and future pioneers like us, students.

The participants and organizers were pleased and at the same time, excited to be a part, partly for a fresh journey and partly for what we had learnt at Codissia. Inferring to the feedback and rejoice we had got in participants; we do believe and wish them for very successful and prosperous future ahead.

SONA CIVIL STUDENT BAGGED GOLD MEDAL IN “ALL INDIA DESIGN COMPETITION – 2017”

            A.Navien of third year, civil engineering department participated in the “ALL INDIA STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION – 2017” conducted by National Design and Research Forum, the Institution of Engineers (India). He has been awarded “GOLD MEDAL” in civil discipline for the design project “SOLAR TREE”. Solar energy is most advantageous for countries having very less space to produce energy efficiently. This solar tree was designed based on “SPIRALLING PHYLLOTAXY” technique to satisfy pressing environmental and social demands for urban lighting and power supply.

In AGM 2017 at NAGPUR recognizing her outstanding research contribution in concrete

Dr .R.Malathy Dept of Civil Engineering received “Best Paper Award “at National level, from Indian concrete Institute for her publication in the ICI Journal .The publication is abart the research on self curing concrete using bio materials as admixtures .The biomaterials like calatropis gigantean and spinacea oleratia as self curing agents in concrete.Curing of concrete plays a vital role in making concrete as strong and durable. But now a days curing is not performed for 28 days continuously because of water and labour scarcity.This research will be cost effective and efficient in attaining strength of concrete without curing. This paper was published during April 2017 in ICI Journal.
