Short Description

This course is designed to provide civil engineering undergraduates with basic understanding of the theory and practice of engineering surveying techniques. Students will apply the knowledge gained from theoretical surveying to practice. Fieldworks covered include chain surveying, plane table surveying, theodolite traverse surveying, leveling, curve setting, houses setting etc. It is hoped that students will gain valuable insight into surveying after completion of this course, which will also help them in their professional life.

Lab Location

AB2,201

Short Description

Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to protect and utilize natural resources, control environmental pollution, improve environmental quality to enable healthy ecosystems and comfortable habitation of humans. It is based on multiple disciplines including geology, hydrology, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering management, etc. This lab mainly deals with the determination of physio-chemical and bacteriological properties of water. This will also aid to determine optimum dosing for common physio chemical treatments. The lab contains relevant fundamental chemistry and biology concepts/theories and their applications in environmental engineering. The key tests include Physical, chemical and bacteriological tests of water and wastewater.
