Survey Camp – A Compulsory and Significant Training Course in Civil Engineering:

Faculty of Civil Engineering successfully conducted a six days Survey Camp (from 14th July to 19th July 2016) for B.Tech 2nd year students of Civil Engineering as the compulsory part of the University academic curriculum after completion for their 4th semester. Survey camp was aimed for grooming the students of B. Tech (Civil) by exposure to field conditions, team work and for practicing the surveying equipments on field at larger scale and work on the real time surveying problems. The trip can be broadly categorized as follows:

Field Work:The six days camp was divided into two phase in 1st phase were for field work at Mussoorie, Dehradun and adjoining areas and the 2nd phase was for field work, calculation, result analysis and group discussions. Students were divided into various groups of 6-7 students monitored by concerned faculty. Students performed various practical exercises like traversing, contouring, plane tabling, leveling, mapping of road route at Mussoorie, Dehradun and adjoining areas en-route, which provided them the relevant field exposure to instruments such as compass, theodolite, auto level, total station, GPS, etc.

Calculations and Result Analysis:: After completion of their field work, students were involved in data collection and analysis of the result under the supervision of concerned faculties. The detailed calculation of the readings, their analysis and drawing activities were performed collectively in the evening. Students worked out the land profile, charts, contour maps, etc.

Geological excursion:Students also got exposure to see actual landslides, geological structures like folding, faulting and unconformities, natural streams, waterfalls, road construction on hills, limestone (Karst) topography, natural caves with groundwater seepage and many more. They were also taken to Shahanshahi Ashram from where Main Boundary Thrust (MBT) could be seen. MBT is an important tectonic plate boundary.

Visit to IIRS, Dehradun: The camp also included a visit to IIRS (Indian Institute of Remote Sensing). IIRS under Indian Space Research Organization, Department of Space, Govt. of India is a premier Training and Educational Institute set up for developing trained professionals in the field of Remote Sensing, Geo-informatics and GPS Technology for Natural Resources, Environmental and Disaster Management. The Institute campus also houses the headquarters of the Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and The Pacific (CSSTEAP). It provides support to conduct all its remote sensing and GIS training & education programs at postgraduate level. IIRS conducted a seminar along with visit to its lab facilities for our students of survey camp on 18th July 2016. The seminar was on ‘Use of GIS & RS in field of water resources’.

Enjoyment after work:The students also enjoyed at various tourist spots at Rishikesh, Mussoorie and Dehradun.

Department is thankful to the University for their approval and guidance in conducting this camp successfully. We are also very thankful to our dear students of B.Tech 2nd year for their active participation in the trip and making it successful.

Fieldwork in B.A. - Village Tindola

The students of B.A. (Hons) English went for a field visit to Tindola village.

Fieldwork constitute an important dimension of research. It helps in the better and empirical understanding of the society. The social structure is unfolded via extensive fieldwork methods. As villages form the basis of the Indian society, therefore the comprehensive and grass root understanding of the Indian society is not possible without having an understanding of the villages in India.
