Monday, February 24, 2020 was a day for the diploma civil engineering 2nd year students to gain some firsthand experience of the industry. As per the academic schedule for the ongoing session the students were taken on an industrial visit to Survey of India. The students got an opportunity to visit the museum. The survey of India is a central engineering agency taking care of mapping and surveying.
There were around one hundred students accompanied, guided, and supervised by two highly competent members of faculty namely Ms. Sapna Bisht & Mr. Manish Ghalwan. The students boarded the college bus in the campus at 10:30 AM & headed for Survey of India museum on EC Road. The students were duly welcomed by the officer in charge Surveyor Mr. Arun Kumar and he guided the students further.
The students were full of enthusiasm on seeing many instruments and devices and were given information on the instruments like Theodolite, Ramsden 100 foot chain, Colby compensation bar. The tour was highly informative and had a high educational value as the students got invaluable information and knowledge about GPS technology and understanding of maps. Along with being a great learning curve it was also an excursion for the students out of the daily routine. The students were also provided refreshment by the college.
The students thanked the faculty members and respected principal, Dr. S.K.Shah, of the college for such an enriching experience and requested to continue this learning exercise in the future also for the larger benefit of the students.
