The Civil Engineering Department is equipped with a well established Concrete and Highway Material testing laboratory. The students are given a good opportunity to learn various aspects of testing Concrete and Highway materials and studying their properties. This is an important step, to ensure material conformity to standard specifications before being put to use during constructions. The laboratory had facilities to conduct test on Soil, cement, fine and coarse aggregate, fresh and hardened concrete, Bitumen and Bituminous mixes. Separate curing tank and storage tank facilities for materials are available..
All the equipments are as per Bureau of Indian Standards. By doing experiments in this laboratory the student can understand the need and significance of various tests.
