RMC Ready mix India Pvt. Ltd. Plant visit
Ready mix concrete is the basic component used in each and every civil engineering projects. So, it is necessary for a civil engineer to get practical knowledge as well as theoretical. Theoretical knowledge may be improved by attending lectures in the college, but practical knowledge a site/plant visit becomes necessary. We at WCTM always try to improve technical skills of our students.
Ready mix concrete is an emerging trend in construction practice and replacing the conventional site mix concrete. Keeping this point in consideration our college organized a plant visit in RMC India situated near by Taj Nagar Railway station, Distt. Gurgaon.
At RMC plant, our students got practical knowledge about batching and mixing of concrete as well as quality control of a workable concrete. Visit also incorporated the use of the various machineries involved in the production of RMC and the various processes of batching and mixing the same. The plant was fully computerized with the state of fine machinery and equipments by machinery supplies of global repute.
On 30th September, 2013 civil 7th semester visited lift irrigation plant at Rewari. In 1966, during the division of Punjab and Haryana, the present day Punjab got the respective upstream sides of most of the rivers. On the contrary, Haryana got the downstream of the rivers thus resulting in a topographical disadvantage as the water source i.e. topography of Haryana hindered the natural flow of rivers throughout its area. Therefore to meet the water supply demand of the population of that place lift irrigation method was adopted. For the same a project was sanctioned in 1975 by the Haryana government which has a budget of Rs 200 cores and the cost of the untreated natural water came out to be Rs 19 per liter.
The lift irrigation was constructed at approximate 5 km stretch and height of lift was 20-25 meters using suction pumps.
On 5th September 2013, 5th semester students visited a Bridge construction site in Noida. Theoretical knowledge itself is not sufficient for complete technical education of the student. Practical knowledge, including site visits are essential for aspiring civil engineering students to inculcate holistic technical knowledge.
So to ensure the same, the visit was arranged to enhance the practical knowledge of the students on RCC, steel and pre-stressed designing, form work, excavation, foundations, piling, pile cap, V-shaped columns, Girders and to give them an overall idea of construction management. The students gained a deep practical concept of surveying and the use of construction activity equipments and effective use of cranes.
B.Tech. 3rd semester students visited the Parle-G manufacturing factory. To visit was arranged to enhance the knowledge of the students about manufacturing process for the industrial production, Cycle time of the production, processing time, input and output cycling and optimization of time and cost.
The event was truly the celebration and amalgamation of management thoughts.
Students and faculty both stood an equal footing to discuss the contemporary issues in management domain. The ground work included brainstorming sessions of the faculty members and student body. A good amount of research coupled with innovative multimedia techniques in presentation made it quite exciting and enjoyable.
The execution day was marked with the presence of Dr. Narendra Singh, chairman WCTM who is himself an eminent scholar and an established educationist along with Dr. Ritu Singh, Managing Trustee WCTM who definitely has a special acumen for management and Prof. N.D. Kaushika, director Research WCTM honoring the department of management studies.
The event began with seeking of divine blessing and lamp lighting ceremony and a welcome address by Ms. Richa Bhardwaj, coordinator Management department with the gracious presence of Dr. Ritu Singh.She addressed the audience and everyone could make out her enthusiasm for the management event.
The event proceeds with the presentation by student community. The wave of enthusiasm was rekindled through the appreciative round of applause of the multidisciplinary audience. The interrogative Q & A round gave the necessary spark to the event.
Dr. Narendra Singh was crisp and eloquent in his interaction with students. He focused on building skills along with exploratory management education. Prof. N.D. Kaushika shared his vast experience with students praising the knock of management.
The charm wasn’t less in the remaining presentations .the event was summarized with the thank you note by Dr. Shachi Yadav, Asst.Prof. Management department
What can be the best way to learn than have experiential learning? We at KNSWMC made an attempt to make students have such an experience through poster and collage competition. Students enthusiastically participated in the activity sprinkled with artistic connotations. Students showed exemplary combination of art and management. This creative thought process resulted in collages and posters with the themes: globalization, inflation, business tycoons, and Indian navratnas. Students not only made the posters and collages, they were equally excited to share their knowledge with the fellow members. Overall a really exciting and experiential day!

Survey camp is a basic necessity for civil engineering students to understand how an engineering plan is created. A survey camp was held from 29 Oct 2012 to 4 Nov. 2012 at Kundli Manaser Palwal (K.M.P.) highway. Within one week period, students were given tasks like producing plan details of a particular area and using these information for designing and planning purposes. During this process students got the chance to use various instruments like Plane Table, Auto Level, Dumpy Level, Theodolite, etc. This survey camp was an excellent learning experience for students. Students got the opportunity to learn new concepts that will help them in later courses.
|As per M.D.U. The survey camp should take place during the third year (i.e., 5th sem.). The duration of the survey camp was one week and comprises of fieldwork, computation, analysis & presentation.
Survey camp is often the first opportunity for students to work outside and to integrate various aspects of engineering disciplines into a project. The main functions of the survey camp were to:
- Enable students to work in real project;
- Enable students to become more familiar with instrumentation;
- Appreciate how different survey methods complement each other; and
- Give students an opportunity to make significant survey decisions.
The students of Civil-5th Semester visited the DJB Water Treatment Plant in Haiderpur and Sewage Treatment Plant, Rithala on September 24th , 2012. The students were led by Mrs. Anju Bala, Coordinator of Civil Branch, along with Mrs. Sonal Bhugra. They first reached the Delhi Jal Board, Water Treatment Plant at Hairderpur where they were joined by Mr. Gajender Singh, Chemist, who explained the various treatment processes and acquainted the students with technical know-how of water treatment plants. Later the students went to Rithala Sewage water Treatment plant where the students got to understand the various processes of sewage treatment. There students got accompanied by Civil Engineers who explained them in detail how the sewage water got treated before its disposal and what benefits can get extracted after treating sewage. Finally, the teachers along with the students thanked the Sewage Treatment Plant authorities and then left the plant. It was great experience for Civil 5th Semester and was highly appreciated by the entire group.
