The Department of Civil engineering, Indus University, provides a platform to the students and faculties to boost their technical intellect and pursuits in all the domains of Civil Engineering such as Engineering Geology, Soil Mechanics & Foundation Engineering, Transportation engineering, Concrete Technology, Environmental Engineering and Earthquake Engineering. It also aims to provide an extra edge apart from academics to provide research temperament.

Engineering Geology Laboratory

Engineering Geology Laboratory helps in determining the engineering behavior of geomaterials (soils and rocks). There are various physical, chemical and geotechnical properties defined in the Laboratory that are needed for identifying the geo-materials. It helps in predicting the behavior of Earth systems and the universe, finding adequate supplies of natural resources, such as ground water, petroleum, and metals and conserving soils and maintaining agricultural productivity. In addition, geotechnical engineer uses this knowledge for designing the type of foundations, earthworks such as dams, embankments, tunnels, reservoirs, pavement subgrades, and specialised applications like waste containment systems.

Bitumen Testing Laboratory

The Laboratory for Bitumen Testing in the civil Department is well equipped with all the needed instruments and equipment that are valuable for general understanding and imparting practical knowledge to students. The Laboratory has the all required equipment to perform tests on Bitumen such as Ductility, Flash and Fire point, Loss on heating, Penetration, Softening point, Specific gravity and Viscosity. 

Surveying Laboratory

The Surveying Laboratory is provided with the instruments and tools that students use throughout the surveying course. Students discover methods for collecting field data with traditional and modern methods and display their proficiency on weekly lab exercises.

Material Testing Laboratory

The material testing laboratory is designed to develop new and innovative construction materials indigenously. The laboratory has also been involved in testing of special structures and retrofitted structures. The laboratory is equipped to evaluate physical and mechanical properties of construction materials such as fresh and hardened concrete, Cement, Aggregates, Bricks, A.A.C. Blocks etc. It is involved in the research facilities for special concrete such as geopolymer concrete, self healing concrete, self compacting concrete, high performance concrete, marine concrete etc. The laboratory also  provides the platform for consultancy assignments and testing related to different materials. 

Environmental Engineering Laboratory

The Environmental Engineering laboratory practical provides good insight into different experimental methods relevant to Environmental Engineering. The Environmental Engineering Laboratory in the Department of Civil Engineering provides good testing, teaching and research facilities. The laboratory contains modern analytical instruments and facilities to carry out simple to sophisticated experiments i.e. the testing of Physico-chemical and Biological parameters for Water and Waste-water, etc. The Laboratory has sophisticated equipment to analyze pollution parameters in water and waste water, soil and air. Experiments on testing the Quality of water such as pH,Turbidity, Conductivity meter, Hardness, Chlorides, Sulphate Alkalinity etc can be performed in the lab. Experiments on noise pollution measurement are also performed in this lab Experiments on waste water also performed in this lab in order to recover the condition of wastewater to reuse it for various purposes such as gardening, and for agricultural purposes.

Soil Mechanics & Foundation Engineering Laboratory

The laboratory is useful for carrying practical related to properties of soil and sub-surface investigation which is of utmost importance in laying the foundation of various civil engineering structures and  also is equipped to perform all the necessary essential characterization of soils, rocks, and several advanced testing facilities. 

The vision is to utilize state-of-the-art knowledge for solving problems related to the subsurface. It includes:

  • Soil mechanics, which is essential to identify, characterize and study the mechanics of soil/rock.
  • Applied soil mechanics, which transfers the behavioural knowledge to practice.

Earthquake Engineering Laboratory

Earthquake engineering laboratory incorporates demonstration of major seismic testing methodologies and engages in basics and applied researches that resolve critical seismic engineering problems. The vision of the laboratory is to build interdisciplinary knowledge and expertise to develop innovative strategies for increasing the safety and reliability of civil engineering structures which are subjected to earthquake loading. The laboratory mainly focuses on structural dynamics, evaluation of seismic performance of civil engineering structures, earthquake resistant design strategies and vibration assessment of structures. With state-of-the-art testing equipment, computing and data acquisition facility, the lab is equipped to conduct pseudo-static to dynamic scale model testing.

Computational Laboratory

Most of the actual problems in the civil engineering and allied fields are generally the simultaneous combinations of multiple physical phenomena. To deal with such problems, the Department is equipped with a computational laboratory that has a total capacity of around 60 seats and systems updated with Modelling software like AutoCAD, Staad Pro V8i, Revit Architecture, Edificius and project management software such as MS Projects, Primavera and other related supporting software.

The construction sector is likely to grow at 10.7 % in FY22 due to the government’s increased focus on infrastructure projects and smart recovery of demand expected for residential as well as commercial segments. Due to that the demand for young, dynamic and talented industry ready civil engineers are often found high. Hence, civil Engineers have promising career prospects in India and other developing nations. The number of ongoing and new Government or Private projects ensures their requirement and employment. The salaries shown are also good and competitive. Some of the key positions in this field are:

  • Structure Analyst, Transportation Planner, Town Planner, Construction Manager, Infrastructural Consultant, Structure Designer, CAD Designer, Construction Engineer etc. 

Indus University has a separate team for the Training & Placement Department (T & P Dept.) – that recreates the crucial role of connecting two important ends academia and Industry. It shows a bridge between constituent institutions of the University and Industry. 

Training & Placement Department (T & P Dept.) is the epicentre for career guidance to students of all programmes and streams pursuing their studies at the University. It offers overall career solutions to the students by guiding them to decide and pursue their dream careers.
