Engineering Graphics - A Language of Engineering

The Engineering Graphics, as one the foundation course is offered to students of all engineering discipline in the first year of their study. It has been observed that students find difficult to learn Engineering Graphics since it requires not only the knowledge but also the imagination / visualization and to develop the drawing skills. These may results in failure due to lack of learning attitude among the students. The program is planned for the second time based on the feedback from successful completion of last year program.

Objectives:

  • To understand the importance and application of engineering graphics.
  • To understand the drawing instruments.
  • To know methodology for preparing the engineering drawing.
  • To develop approach for learning the course with few fundamental topics.
  • To develop visualization with the help of audio – visual aids and models.

STTP on "Construction Practices on Wheels"

Department is going to organize STTP on “Construction Practices on Wheels” during 5th June 2017 to 17th June 2017 where participants are supposed to spend 50% time at various construction sites and remaining 50% time on assignments based on site visits.
