A monthly program on Summer Internship was organised by the Department of Civil Engineering, School of Engineering and Technology, in Adamas University, Kolkata on June-July, 2019.
The program was a brain child of the Department of Civil Engineering which has planned to bridge the gap between industry requirements and academics. The main objective of this initiative is to provide skill based training to the polytechnic and engineering students to cope up to the construction field requirements and become industry ready which makes them really feel employable. This program was to gain the importance of setting a set of ambitious but realistic goals for each of the interns, and working closely with them to realize these goals over the course of the internship.
The program started with the welcome address by Dr. T. Senthil Vadivel, HOD of Civil Engineering department. Dr. Amitava Mukherjee, Associate Dean of School of Engineering and Technology inaugurated the program and given his stimulating words unto students. Pradip Bhowmick, Director of School of Engineering and Technology, felicitated the gathering after giving a manifesting speech towards students.
n this monthly program, considering with daily 01 lecture each in morning and afternoon time, weekly total 12 lecture sessions was composed. Some of sessions were completely theory and knowledge based and some with field practices along with theory lectures. Faculty of Department of Civil Engineering took initiative in all those sessions with their power point presentation and field practice experiences.
On very first day in a week, the morning session started with the topic “An Insight on Career Perspectives in Construction and Infrastructure Industry- An Overview” by Dr. T. Senthil Vadivel, HOD of Civil Engineering Department and followed by lunch hour afternoon session was taken by Mr. Santanu Haldar, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering with topic “Field Survey Technique Using Modern Equipment- Measurement of Area using Total Station and Drawing of Map”. This session contained with classroom lecture and afterward field practice techniques.
On second day of Internship Mr. Sayandip Ganguly, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering, presented “Building Plan based on VASTU (Scientific Orientation of Building, VASTU Criteria & Complete Building Plan Drawing” and Mr.Tridib Pramanik, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering, presented “Field Estimation (Estimation Techniques and Preparation of Complete Estimation using Excel Sheet”.
Third day of Internship started with “Soil Investigation and Foundation Analysis (Field Identification Technique of Soil, Test Related to Soil Properties & Determination of Bearing Capacity” by Mr. Tamal Kanti Das, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering in the morning session, which contained with classroom lecture and then field practice techniques. Afterward “Building Marking (Techniques of Marking Points on the Ground for Excavation and Construction of Foundation” was presented by Mr. Jayanta Nath Chowdhury, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering in the afternoon session.
Fourth day morning session introduced with “Strength and Quality Analysis of the Construction Materials (Test of Building Materials for Quality Control at Site)” by Mr. Bidhan Ghosh, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering and afternoon session undertook jointly by Assistant Professor Mr. Jayanta Nath Chowdhury, and Dr. T. Senthil Vadivel, HOD of Civil Engineering department with topic “Construction and Concreting Techniques (Introduction to PERT, CPM, Construction Techniques of Multi-storeyed Structure, Basic Knowledge about various Advanced Concreting Techniques)”.
On fifth day the topic “Construction Safety Practice (Safety Measures to be taken at Site, Fire safety, Safety Measures for High Altitude Works etc.)” was jointly presented by Dr. T. Senthil Vadivel and Mr. Sayandip Ganguly in the morning session when the topic “Construction by Laws for Registering L.B.S (Requirements for LBS License, K.M.C Requirements etc.)” was presented by the later person in the afternoon session.
Final day of Internship was based on quality check of Water by Ms. Arshdeep Kaur, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering with a topic “Water Quality Analysis (Test on Water to Measure Water Quality Index using Modern Equipment)”. The program was successfully being through with Feedback from Students through Power Point Presentation and Valedictory Speech by Dr. T. Senthil Vadivel, HOD of Civil Engineering department.
Course completion certificates were distributed among the Interns by those respected faculty members at the end of the session.
