Merchant Engineering College

Overview

The Department of Civil Engineering seeks to provide an excellent environment in which students and faculty are engaged in a comprehensive up-to-date education process of the highest quality in all aspects of computing. The mission of the department is to produce the next generation of civil engineer. The department strives to achieve its mission by being student centered, community engaged, and committed to academic excellence.

The Department of Civil Engineering offers a variety of ways to concentrate in this field at the undergraduate level. We have Bachelor Engineering (B.E.) program in our institute.

Objectives

  • To prepare students for advanced technical positions in industry and for further education.
  • To promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences between universities and industry.
  • To prepare for student excellent and accurate work for construction sites.
  • To train and educate students for better management of human relation with persons on construction sites.

Infrastructure

The Department of Civil Engineering has fully equipped laboratory with latest instruments. The Department's space is designed for flexibility and to allow easy further infrastructure expansion. There is ample space for laboratories and classrooms to support teaching and group interactions.

The Civil Engineering Laboratory provides the basic computing infrastructure for the Department. The lab staffs are responsible for installing and maintaining all laboratory instruments. In addition, the staff works with faculty and students to accommodate special academic needs.

In civil engineering we have number of labs including Elements of civil Engineering, Mechanics of Solids, Surveying, Fluid Mechanics, Concrete Technology, Advanced Survey Highway Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering 1 & 2, Applied Fluid Mechanics, Water and Waste Water Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Project 1 & 2

Activity

We have arranged 3 days Techanical visit at Institute of Seismological Research, Ganndhinagar and Railway Workshop, Bhavanagar and Pipava Port, Pipava for 6TH Semester Students.

We have arranged 1 day Techanical visit at Pirana Sewage Treatment Plant, Ahmedaabd for 6th Semester Students.

We have arranged 2 day Techanical visit at Sardar Sarovar Dam, Kevadiya Colony for 4th Semester Students.

We have arranged project for Tachiometric Survey at Taranga Hill for 4th Semester Students.

We have arranged Earthquake Engineering Extra lectures for 6th semester students.

We have arranged Structural Analysis II Extra lectures for 4th Semester students.

The sole objective of Merchant Engineering College, Civil Department is to conceive and execute state of the art education programme within the region. It works with the Mission of Social upliftment and transformation through knowledge and education of the community in general and rural community in particular.

Future

This has been one of the most lucrative and competitive course to study since its inception in Indian engineering schools, colleges and universities. When India’s Infrastructure industry created mark in world of business and gained super trust and revenue for the nation it also created large amount of well paid jobs for Civil Engineering students.

Civil engineering students will learn about basic engineering techniques, as other engineering students, during first year course. These techniques include Engineering Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, and Engineering drawing. From second year they are exposed to core civil engineering subjects like Concrete Technology, Building and Town Planning, Engineering Geology. Structural Analysis, Highway Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Design, Water and Waste water Engineering are few to mention.
