Professional Technical Associations

The department is associated with professional technical associations and societies such as IEEE and IETE, which allow the students to improve and update their technical knowledge and personality development. Prof. Anjana J. G. is the IETE staff in-charge of CIVIL department.


IEEE is the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE's highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

       The department has 6 laboratories. All the labs are well equipped and have good facilities for teaching, field testing and research works in Civil Engineering. The following laboratories are available in Civil Engineering department

Civil workshop

The Civil workshop is well equpipped with a set of equipments and various experiments of setting out. area calculation,plumbing and sanitory fittings were done.
Lab in-charge: Ms. Lakshmi Sai

Material Testing Lab

Material testing lab is used to expose students on various experiments conducted on different materials which are used in Civil Engineering. In the lab, the students tests basic building materials such as cement, aggregate, steel and concrete and compares that with the standards given by Indian Standard codes. The major equipments that are available in lab are universal testing machine, torsion testing machine, impact testing machine, Brinell and Rockwell hardness testing machine, spring testing machine, fatigue testing machine.
Lab in-charge: Mrs. Gopika Unni

Surveying lab

Survey lab consists of equipments which are useful for land measurements and leveling operations. At the second year level, the students gets practical training to the various topics covered in theory course
The lab includes the basic instruments such as theodolite, dumpy level, plane table, prismatic compass and modern equipments like total station, electronic theodolite and autolevel which have more accuracy in surveying.
Lab in-charge: Mrs. Sowmya K S

Geotechnincal Engineering Lab

For the design of any Civil Engineering structure, foundation has to be designed. Design of foundation requires the basic properties of soil and its safe bearing capacity. Geotechnical lab helps the students in understanding the concepts of geotechnical engineering in detail. The major equipments in the lab include the following: Casagrande apparatus, core cutter apparatus, proctor compaction apparatus, CBR apparatus, shear test apparatus, unconfined compression test apparatus.
Lab in-charge: Mrs.Dilna Sathian V

Computer Applications Lab

Computer Applications Lab is the home of scientific computing at evergreen. The mision of the lab is to support students with various most popular softare of autocad, IRC softwares and MS office. We provide coaching with most popular structured engineering software products for 3D model generation,analysis and multimaterial design and also with the geostudies software.it is designed for students and holds all software that can be found in computer lab plus advanced software.
Lab in-charge: Ms. Kripa

Enviornmental Engineering Lab

The Enviornmental Engineering Laboratory is a state of the art,well equippped laboratory that is able to perform most types of aboratory analysis.The laboratory offers excellent facilities for detailed analysis.Students in the laboratory courses also have accss to rsearch laboratories instrumennts when advanced analytical techniques are required.
Lab in-charge: Mrs. Neethu John

Civil Engineering Association Guest Lecture 2017

Civil Engineering Association organized a lecture on Non Destructive Testing (NDT) on 26th September 2017. Dr. B.G. Vishnuram, Principal, Ahalia School of Engineering and Technology gave the presidential address. Dr. P. Rama Mohan RaoPannem, Associate Professor, Centre for Disaster Mitigation and Management, VIT University, Vellore, Tamilnadu gave the lecture. Dr. P. Rama Mohan RaoPannem covered the various systems used in the field for testing the concrete structures. He also discussed the different situations where NDT seems to be effective. Certain case studies were presented to understand the working principle of NDT. The session was very helpful and informative for the students.
