We provide various facilities to students to carry out experimental works and result analysis in following labs:

Transportation Lab

Transportation engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with planning, designing, estimation, construction, operation, maintenance, rehabilitation and management of transportation infrastructure for movement of people and goods from one place to the other safely, timely, conveniently, comfortably, economically by using various modes like highways, railways, air ways, water ways and pipe ways also.

In Transportation engineering lab we do possible application of what we study in transport engineering by testing of materials use in transport construction.

Surveying Lab

The Surveying Laboratory is equipped with the instruments and tools that students use throughout the surveying course. Students learn techniques for gathering field data with both traditional and modern instruments and demonstrate their proficiency on weekly lab exercises and a comprehensive semester project and final exam. Each lab group – typically three students – has a dedicated set of instruments to use, including auto level, theodolite, and total station. Each group also has level rods, tripods, tape measures, chaining pins, and other common surveying tools and ancillary equipment. The lab serves as office space for the surveying instructor and teaching assistants, so surveying students have direct access to help for material discussed in lecture and lab.

Concrete Lab

Concrete Performance Lab focuses on concrete durability, early-age properties of concrete and the pursuit of high-performance civil engineering materials. Concrete, the most widely used building material in the world, is a sustainable material when properly designed and constructed. While new
materials may show promise, they are often made from natural resources that are simply not found in quantities abundant enough to compete with or even replace the most used construction material in the world, concrete. It is for this reason that concrete is the most advantageous for further development as an advanced material, and enhancements to concrete to generate special properties or to achieve superior performance may be a central path forward to ensure both long-term durability and sustainability.

Building Material Lab

Building and construction materials laboratory conducts tests on these materials. Where it benefited from the best specialized companies in manufacturing the testing instruments of building and construction materials, and has trained technicians on the operation and maintenance. The lab was supported by the best specialists, experts and instruments to conduct the necessary researches in this field.

Soil Mechanics Lab

Introduction to Soil Mechanics Laboratory Testing provides procedural aids and elucidates industry standards. It also covers how to properly present data and document results. Containing numerical examples and figures, the information presented is based on American Society for Testing and Materials standards, and US Army Corps of Engineers engineering manuals.The authors discuss the different methods of in situ field methods and ex situ laboratory methods of soil description and identification. They present equations for the physical properties of soil and laboratory methods of soil classification. They also discuss tests for the interaction of soil and water, and hydraulic conductivity and consolidation. These tests produce information useful in the identification and characterization of soil samples and their engineering behaviors.

Geology Lab

Engineering Geology deals with the application of geologic sciences to engineering practice for the purpose of assuring that the geologic factors affecting the location, design ,construction ,operation and maintenance of civil engineering structures. Engineering geologists investigate and provide recommendations on the character of the geology of the area for engineering analysis and design. The geology laboratory comprise of samples of minerals, stones and models of folds/faults, earthquake etc… A coarse work laboratory trains civil engineering students in identification procedures of minerals and stones and study of geological maps.

Environmental Engineering Lab

The Environmental Engineering and Science Laboratory is a state of the art, well-equipped laboratory that is able to perform most types of laboratory analyses. The Environmental Lab is used by many different disciplines across the campus including the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Geology, Chemistry, Biology, and Environmental Studies. Each department uses the laboratory for both courses and research which provides students with hands-on experience in environmental analysis methods.

Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulics Lab

The Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory is designed to examine the properties of fluids and to conduct experiments involving both incompressible and compressible flow. The laboratory is also equipped to conduct experiments on open channel flow, centrifugal pumps and groundwater flow. The facilities can accommodate up to three labs running concurrently depending on the experiment involved.

Structure Lab

Structural Engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction, inspection, monitoring, maintenance permanent and temporary structures, as well as structural systems and their components. Structures can include buildings, bridges, in-ground structures, footings, frameworks and space frames. They can be composed of any structural material including composites and novel materials.
