Objective: To acquaint the faculty members with the state of the art technologies in the civil engineering industry and provide an opportunity for the faculty and research scholars to enhance there knowledge with the peers.

Key features of the FDP:

  • Modern construction methodologies and project management

  • A technical visit to construction material testing laboratory [Civil Aid Technoclinic Pvt Ltd.]

  • A site visit to a major construction project near Bengaluru. (Prestige Golfshire, Nandi Hills Road)

  • Concept of Chemical Admixture and recent trends in concrete Technology

  • Temple Architecture and site visit to Swananda Ashrama
  • Demonstration on softwares – E-survey, CADD & Rivet.

  • Emerging trends in transportation engineering.

CYPECAD Software Training Programme

Author: Mr. Nishchay Viswasena, Asst. Prof., Dept of Civil                                 Date: 23/12/2014

Objective: To encourage the faculty members to learn the latest design software and encourage the students to learn the same.

CYPECAD is the software used for reinforced concrete and steel structures which provides the spatial analysis, structural element design, reinforcement and section edition and construction drawings of the structures. It carries out the analysis of three dimensional structures composed of supports and floor slabs, including their foundations and the automatic design of reinforced concrete and steel elements. With CYPECAD, the engineer holds a precise and efficient tool to resolve all the aspects related to the analysis of the structures of any type of concrete as well as being adapted to the latest international codes.

National Design Competition – CADD Centre

Author: Mr. S Kumar, Asst. Prof., Dept of Civil                                                 Date: 22/02/2016

Objective: To encourage the students to use AutoCAD software for 2D and 3D Modelling.

Design and modeling competition was organized by CADD centre in association with JIT. The students participated in the competition to model and design the building. The shortlisted candidates were selected for next level competition conducted by regional level. Out of 500 participants from different engineering colleges, our student Mr. Prajwal G. V. of 6th semester got selected for regional level.

Bridge Design and Bridge Modelling

Author: Shambhavi R S, Asst. Prof., Dept of Civil                                                   Date: 25 & 26/03/2015

Objective: To acquaint the students with the bridge design principles and designing the bridge using software.

Civil Bridge Champ 2015 – A Two Day Workshop organized by GADgets’ in association with JIT. The students were trained to design bridges using software and also fabricate the bridge prototype models to test the maximum load carrying capacity for the designed values.

Visit to Water Treatment Plant at Thoraikadanahalli

Author: Nishchay Viswasena, Asst. Prof., Dept of Civil                                                   Date: 09/03/2015

Objective: To enrich the knowledge of the students about the various stages of water treatment that the Cauvery river water undergoes before it is supplied to the Bangalore cities.

The automated water treatment plant is being run by Degremont Limited. The Kaveri water reaches the plant from Shimsha. The plant has a maximum capacity of treating 750 million litres of water per day (MLD).

The visit envisaged the students about whole procedure and understands the process in a better way. They also observed the automated treatment process which would increase the efficiency of the treatment and the various measures adopted to adhere to the quality and the safety specifications.

Visit to Gorur Dam

Author: Shambhavi R S, Asst. Prof., Dept of Civil                                                   Date: 23/07/2014

Objective: To educate the students about the salient features of dams and the concept of hydropower generation.

Gorur Dam is constructed across the river Hemavathy, an important tributary of the river Kaveri. The dam is located in Gorur, near the city of Hassan in Karnataka. Built in 1979, the reservoir has been serving multiple purposes of providing water supply for drinking, irrigation to the agricultural lands and production of electricity. The reservoir has a catchment area of 2810sq km. With a length of 4692 meters and a height of 58.5 meters the reservoir has gross storage capacity of 1050.63 mcm. The reservoir has 6 large radial spillway gates.

Visit to Sir M. Visvesvaraya Rainwater Harvesting Theme Park

Author: Shambhavi R S, Asst. Prof., Dept of Civil                                                    Date: 16/11/2013

Objective: To enrich the knowledge of the students about the rain water harvesting and create awareness about its benefits

The theme park has different types of rainwater harvesting models which explains the usage and importance of water in all its forms with a special focus on water conservation. The models here show how Cauvery water reaches our homes through the three pumping stations and how the city’s wastewater is treated at the BWSSB sewage treatment plants.

The concerned technical staff of the park explained the details about each method. Informative videos on rainwater harvesting were shown to the students. The visit was very informative for the students and staff.
