(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.
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.
(ii) 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. The event was successful enough to attract 21 batches from civil engineering department. This event was organized with the objective to provide platform for the students to showcase their talent with a competitive spirit.
The following are 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. Civil model expo named the theme for the model expo, 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. Department feels proud to organize such a successful event and would like to convey thanks to principal and management for their timely advice and cooperation for organizing successful event.
WHAT THE STUDENTS HAVE LEARNT FROM THE CIVIL MODEL EXPO
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. Students learned what team work is. 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 come 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. All team members reached lab at proper time, they learned punctuality, they learned how so ever big the task is we can do it by branching it between the team members and have that work done.
Dealing with the last moment problems:
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.
Dealing with real life situation:
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.
