Student Association- SRISTICA

The Civil Engineering Student’s Chapter “SRISTICA” (SRInivas STudents Innovative Civil Association) was started in the year 2011 with a view to provide platform for civil engineering students to organize activities like seminars, technical talks, guest lectures, etc. Experts and professionals from the industry, research centers and the academia are regularly invited to share their experience and to impart knowledge to the civil engineering students. Election for the various positions of Office Bearers of SRISTICA is conducted on annual basis, in the month of August. The aim of conducting election is to promote the leadership and team building abilities of students, and also to organize various events under the leadership of HOD and Faculty Coordinators.

Scope of Civil Engineering:

Civil Engineering is one of the most traditional branches of engineering deals with the construction of residential, commercial, industrial and civil engineering structures both in Private and Public sector. Civil Engineers design the structures, produce drawings, prepare specifications, bill of quantities, method statements, contract documents, construction planning and schedule of work, quality control / quality assurance of the works, controlling and commissioning of the project. Civil Engineering projects includes construction of roads, buildings, bridges, airports, tunnels, dams, break waters, ware houses, power plants, treatment plants, canals, drains, water supply and sewage systems, harbours, docks, and so many other structures which in both Private and Public sector.
