Industrial Visits

  • Departement of Civil Engineering organised an Industrial visit to National Small Industries Coporation(NSIC)  for final year and pre final year students of Civil Engineering on 23rd January 2017. National Small Industries Corporation  (NSIC), is an ISO 9001-2008 certified Government of India Enterprise under Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME). 40 students  visited NSIC along with one faculty member .
  • RMC Plant visit, NS Group, Surajpur, Greater Noida (Feb 7, 2014). 40 students of B. Tech 3rd year, accompanied by Prof. Gaurav Goel, visited the plant and learnt the RMC operation and Quality control measures.

  • 17 students from B Tech 3rd and 4th year visited the DMRC construction site near Janakpuri and learnt the details of foundation preparation and building materials used in Metro Rail construction.
  • 35 students from 2nd year visited the cement grinding plant of Ambuja Cement at NTPC Road, Dadri. The students were given a tour of the facilities and explained the process of cement production, testing and packaging. The students learnt, in detail, the process of conversion of clinkers into fine cement.

Sewage Treatment Plant Visit:

25 students of M Tech (Env. Engg.) and B Tech (4th yr) accompanied Dr. Gaurav Saini and Ms. Gurmanwant Sandhu on a visit to the 137 MLD Sewage Treatment Plant located in Kasana. This plant treats the entire wastewater generated by the Greater Noida city. The visit was very informative and useful for the students, and all the practical applications of what the students have been studying this term related to sewage treatment was on display. The plant operator informed the students about the operation of the plant as well as the automation used. He also enagaged the students in a discussion about the various issues that can arise in plant operation and also the reuse of treated sewage. The students were very impressed with the scale of operation and commented on how such a visit has helped them better understand the theoretical constructs taught in the classroom.
