1 One day workshop on educational utilizations of Indian standards 60 26-09-2019

(i) One day workshop on educational utilizations of Indian standards

The Department of Civil Engineering, Vardhaman College of Engineering conducted one day workshop on “Educational Utilizations of Indian Standards” on 26-9-2019. Students of B tech II civil engineering participated in it to enhance their knowledge apart from regular theoretical practice by Mr. Nishikanth Singh (Scientist B). The total event was conducted in association with ISTE and ICI Vardhaman Local Student chapter. Different sectors and activities were done by BIS which includes a each aspect of getting certified consumer goods such as cement, admixtures etc.
Bureau of Indian standards (BIS)
The Erstwhile Indian Standards Institution (now Bureau of Indian Standards) was established in the year 1947 with the objective of harmonious development of standardization activity in India. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) was established under the BIS Act, 1986 for the harmonious development of the activities of standardization, marking and quality certification of goods and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. A new Bureau of Indian Standards Act, 2016 which was notified on 22nd March 2016, has been brought into force with effect from 12 October 2017 that reinforces the activities of BIS in respect to standardization and certification of goods, articles, processes, systems and services.
In the engineering courses, students do refer to various Indian standards pertaining to their subjects. Therefore, as desired by the Government of India, BIS was conducting Educational Utilization programs periodically. Around 20,454 Indian Standards are published by the 15 technical departments of BIS. During our Educational Utilization program, some of the important standards are brought to the notice of the students of various branches for their own benefit in their future job in respective industries and also incase if they are interested in establishing their own industries

The major objectives of the workshop were activities that were carried out in BIS and educational utilization of Indian Standards. A total of 60 students from second year civil got benefited, Students got exposure on all the codes available for us to recommend a product/construction material, they discussed about the how quality checking is done. Also all available codes for load measurements, cement forms, concrete codes, steel codes, earthquake codes, etc. were specifically explained.

1 Civil Model Expo 21 11-08-2017

(i) Civil Model Expo
Civil model expo under ISTE student chapter was organized on 11-08-2017 conducted by civil Engineering department at Vardhaman College of Engineering, kacharam, Shamshabad. This event was organized with the objective to provide platform for the students to showcase their talent with a competitive spirit.
The following people were the committee members for this event:
1) Mr. Dashrath R & B department GHMC Hyderabad
2) Dr. Nageshwar rao , Professor, Department of ECE
The model expo allows students to compete in technology activities. The participants were required to construct civil engineering models. It tested the participant’s creativity, precision and technical ability. Several interesting models were displayed at all levels of civil engineering by UG students.
All the models and activities were highly appreciated by the visitors as amply received in remarks left behind. The winners were encouraged with cash prizes.
The students were able to understand the importance of team work.
Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. How a piece of work is distributed among team members, how the work becomes easy when each member works efficiently to complete the job given. It generated a mutual understanding between them. They came to know how different sets of ideas and different approaches can be used to complete the task.
Students planned every aspect of their model beforehand. The day before the model expo turn was devoted to planning of what all had to be done in making a model. They used to chart out a rough algorithm before making a part on any machine. They properly planned out the complete model.
The most useful aspect which made this model expo possible was dividing the work among team members. It reduced their time over any job.
Students learned how to work under critical conditions when there is a lot of stress on our mind without losing their temperament. It gave them an overall confidence of doing any sort of work in limited time. Students also learned how to give a shape to their ideas and how to implement what they have in their minds.
Needless to mention, the project has helped students in getting a better grasp over the subject. Practicals are always useful, but when they do a project and devote themselves completely to it, they get a deeper knowledge and understanding.
