Sakthi Mariamman Engineering College
NBA Accredited & ISO 9001 - 2008 Certified Institution

Faculties - Department Of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering involves planning, designing, executing and maintaining structural works. Civil Engineers develop infrastructure to have a profound effect on the society considering the function, aesthetics, economics and sustainability. The courses cover basic sciences, Mathematics, Engineering graphics, Computing techniques along with the fundamental Engineering principles of construction materials.

Building Drawing and Laboratory classes in testing of materials help to understand Civil Engineering in a practical way. Students will also cover the fundamental principles to study the behavior of solids, Fluids and Soils. Surveying and Environmental Engineering. Site visits are arranged to give the students practical idea along with laboratory classes in Surveying, Hydraulics and Soil Engineering. Analysis and design of steel and concrete structures and Foundation Engineering are focused. The students can opt for a special elective subject prescribed in the curriculum. A survey camp is arranged for the benefit of the students. Practical classes in Computer Aided Structural Analysis and Environmental Engineering are other features. In the Final year, management and maintenance of construction projects are dealt. The students have to undertake challenging real projects individually in analysis and design of structures.

This exciting programme aims to provide Civil Engineering graduates with the advanced conceptual understanding, detailed factual knowledge and special technical skills appropriate for Analysis and Design of Structures in an Engineering based consultancy business.

The courses featuring in the first year are Applied Mathematics, Advanced Theories and Computing techniques.

  Matrix Methods of Structural Analysis

  Structural Dynamics

  Theory of Elasticity and Plasticity

  Aseismic Design of Structures

Electives can be opted based on the students interest from the curriculum. Structural Analysis using software and other computing techniques are offered as practical courses.

During the second year the students can opt for any three elective subjects such as

  Design of Structures for Dynamics Load

  Design of Plates, Shells and Special Structures

  Design of Bridges

  Optimization in Structural Design

  Prestressed Concrete

Electrical Machines Lab is equipped with DC / AC motors, generators, Transformers and necessary measuring equipments.

In addition the students are to undergo practical Training for 4 weeks in any Construction industry to gain practical experience and technical skills. The students are also encouraged to give seminars on current areas of research. To acquire high degree of engineering skills and to translate brilliant ideas into a working reality, a project work is carried out in two phases. To execute the project works there is an excellent Structural Engineering Laboratory to cater to the students need with all facilities.
