Civil Engineering : Project Based Learning

Method: Project work and Report writing

The department has made it a mandatory requirement for every student to design and conduct a project, right from the fifth semester onwards which is beyond the regular curriculum for the semester. This helps the student to have a hands-on approach to the engineering design process and utilize the theoretical aspects they have learnt to develop prototypes and design experiments on what they have learnt. During the fifth semester, the students conduct a mini-project that focuses on the fundamental software design aspects of computer Science and Engineering. A project group consisting of a maximum of four members under the guidance of a faculty member explores a scientific principle related to their area of interest. The learning process is given more weightage during the assessment and not the results obtained. 

Students in their sixth semester are encouraged to do a project which will help them to learn new technical skills with guidance from an allotted faculty member. They are encouraged to explore a problem and develop a simple prototype or working model that can solve it. This introduces them to the concept of the Engineering design process method. 

The group of students is also mentored by their allotted guides in preparing a well-structured report. To assist this process, the institution has published a scientific format in which each project group is required to submit the report. This practice helps the students to understand and improve their scientific writing skills. The prepared report is archived in both soft and hard copy and is made available in the department library for peer reference.

In the project Based learning students are participating with effectively. As a effect of this students are increasing their confidence. Also, they get knowledge about own how to test the material and how to take test on the material and how to use different machines. Most important students increase their capacity to work in team. 


By participating in a project-based learning model, students are able to construct their own knowledge and reflect upon their learning projects, resulting in increased motivation and self-efficacy.


  1. This was wonderful idea to implement. I am happy to see you students are working on hands on experince project

  2. This was very good idea

  3. Very Good concept

  4. Excellent products.

  5. Great initiative by college for giving a exposure to the students to work on the hands on projects. Such a great innovative idea.

  6. Very Good ... Excellent

    Really nice

  8. Very good and effective

  9. This is very much required for the engineering students as it helps to boost students confidence.

  10. The civil engineering students are meant to adopt practical exposure and hands on experiences for real and futuristic growth.. Great initiative.

  11. Project works bring some innovative technology.. college and departments are doing excellent piece of work

  12. Good initiative for the budding civil engineering students. It develops the group leadership qualities.

Multimedia Learning (ICT Classroom):

Introduction:  In this, the teacher will deliver some concepts with the aid of Software tools. These learning tools play a vital role in delivering subject knowledge. The students can identify the key points of the presentation in an easy way. Live demonstration can be an effective tool to present material in the classroom and encourage student learning. Multimedia combines basic types of media into a learning environment such as text, audio, video and graphics thus providing a powerful tool for teaching. This allows the students to pay more attention towards the concepts. It also helps the students to think and analyze the concepts in a better way.  Execution Plan:  The teacher explains some topics in their regular teaching process using Software Tools /Animation / Videos to simplify their presentation.  Outcomes:  1. Simple way of presenting subject knowledge than from the regular teaching practices.  2. Students can understand the concepts in a better way. Google Classroom User Manu


Industrial Bot: This robot has 2 modes of operations, first is Human follower robot it consists of Arduino,4motors,one motor driver, two IR sensors and an ultrasonic sensor. IR sensor used to follow the human or object and ultrasonic sensor is used to  follow the user to achieve a specific goal . And second mode is Line follower robot when we push switch low then robot use IR transmitters and receivers also called photo diodes. They are used for sending and receiving light. IR transmits infrared light. When infrared rays falls on  surface, it's reflected back and catched by photo diodes   which generates some voltage changes and then the movement happens. Whenever there is an obstacle then it can detect the obstacle and stops there itself. Industrial application : A robot can help to carry heavy items for along distance goods carrier in rural area ,small scale industry helps to lifting heavy load. Benefits: Decrease the human injuries , increase the strength, saves time ,production
