School of Civil Engineering (SCE)
Industry / Institute collaboration
To promulgate research and placement activities several initiatives are taken to collaborate with leading industries and reputed institutes in India and abroad. Some of the major initiatives in the direction of strengthening of research in the school include signing of MoU’s with Hitech Concrete Solutions Chennai Pvt Ltd, Chennai, India; Senseimage Technologies Pvt Ltd, Chennai, India; Iron Shell Material Technologies, Arizona, USA, etc.
The school actively associates itself with the nearby industries in its regular practice which includes testing of building materials, concrete mix design, water quality analysis, design of environmental structures, functional training programmes for Engineers, etc.
The school organizes periodically National/International Conferences and workshops in collaboration with reputed Industries and Institutes which provide a hand on experience and knowledge about the emerging research trends that is happening in the field of Civil Engineering.
The students are advised to undergo In-Plant training to practise their accumulated theoretical knowledge in the industry. Thereby, the students will be aware about the needs of any industry. To make this practice in a systematic way, the school necessitates the students to acquire two credits before their VI semester through their four weeks industrial internship, followed by an expert committee’s review.
Industrial visits are scheduled in every semester for the students, where the arrangements and coordination will be taken care by the school through a coordinator. These visits, in addition to their laboratory classes, help students to experience the industrial environment, which inherently promotes the thinking capacity, conceptualization skills, good decision-making ability and discipline among them.
