Student Achievement in the Department of Civil Engineering
Student achievement measures the amount of academic content a student learns in a determined amount of time. Each grade level has learning goals or instructional standards that educators are required to teach. Standards are similar to a ‘to-do’ list that a teacher can use to guide instruction.
In the department of Civil Engineering, student achievement is obtained by Student Resiliency, focus on individual student abilities-cognitive and meta cognitive factors affect the student’s ability to learn, and more importantly to critically understand-how to best understand and process information; health and attendance-motivational, physical, and affective factors; developmental differences- readiness for skills development; social and moral development is embedded in the culture of the student; college climate as a welcoming and safe environment for learning, parent outreach; professional development for teachers; building leadership capacity in teachers; teacher evaluation; peer culture and achievement.
Our students have paced in all walks of life, be it mastering education, sports or extracurricular activities. Every year a large number of our students bell GATE/CAT/SSC-JE/ CGL. Our student have achieved marvel in IES (Indian Engineering Service) by assuming AIR 4. In the zonal and university level sports meet, our students have won a lot of awards and have also pushed themselves to the top notch gold medals. Students of our departments have also brought accolades by participating in various dancing/singing/extempore speech competitions. With every passing time, our students are bringing new feathers to add to the achievement of the department and to themselves, to reaffirm, restore and challenge the earlier benchmarks set and also to speak on the volume of hard-work put by the department.

We have framed a project lab in the civil engineering department. The purpose of this lab is to provide students a designated place to perform hands-on work for any class project. Previous year project reports and project photos are also kept in this room. With our project-based education, emphasis on experiential learning, and collaborative environment, our students are exposed to a multitude of options in their curriculum. The fetch of civil engineering is very wide. To accommodate the various aspects in one lab is practically impossible. To imbibe the idea of project based learning, a range of well facilitated laboratories is essential, which are well established in the department of civil engineering. The students in this department make full use of the facilities available to them and as such the testing of all the projects can be done in the department itself.
To be concurrent with the latest industrial trends and technologies, adopting an interdisciplinary technique is the need of the hour. Such interdisciplinary technique based projects were undertaken in the department and are also available for display so that the engineers of tomorrow may pick up ideas from them and carry on with their work.
The photographs below speak about the volume of projects done in the department.
The Department of Civil Engineering has conducted many industrial visits to enhance practical applications based learning. Applying theoretical knowledge to practical applications leaves a long lasting impression on the minds and subsequently it opens up the mind in multiple dimensions. Enriching the minds to culminate ideas has always been the ethos of this department.
Among the various industrial visits, a few are mentioned.
1) Tehri Dam: This visit mainly focused on water resources engineering and irrigation engineering. It also gave an insight into hydraulic engineering and hydraulic machineries and their working.
2) FCI Meerut and Hapur: This visit focused on building planning and drawing. It also dealt with design of steel structures and ventilation.
3) Hastinapur Village: Engineering survey to lay down sewer systems, road formation and estimation of reservoir capacity was done.
