About Civil

The following laboratories are established and made available for student practical studies.

LAB FACILITIES

The objective of this laboratory is to learn about measurement of distances, angles, reduced levels and setting out works. The experiments include determination of distances using chain and tape, reduced levels and contours using level, bearing of lines using compass, horizontal and vertical angles using theodolite and graphical method using plane table. The following equipments are used for such work
