Dr. Selvan V,

Associate Professor and Head

Civil Engineering is one of the oldest engineering domains which has limitless possibilities in a number of domains. A student who enrols to pursue an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering is undoubtedly landing in one of the most creative engineering programs, where he/she shall learn to design and manage massive infrastructure we all depend on: pre-stressed/ prefabricated elements, highways, aqueducts, pollution control facilities, and more. Once on completion of the fundamentals, learners have the flexibility to choose their career path in structural, environmental, and construction management.

Vision

Civil Engineering Association Immersion Program

Civil-Engineering-Association
The first immersion program for the members of CEA was so much interesting and there was a lot more to learn. The program had events that were new. It is held on January 11 & 12, 2020
It was helpful in a way to learn about Leadership, Self motivation and Communication. The parts of communication which included Deep freeze, Derive and Deliver taught the decorum of speaking on stage. We thank Mr. Hari Shankar, President of MBA for making his time for us.
We had a Skype call with one of our Seniors who’s currently studying his masters at Canada. We thank Mr. Pranesh for sharing his experience on his endeavors. That was really a good idea for people who had their idea on higher studies abroad.
The tapping of numbers should be named as learning the quality of being a better leader and to help us think out of the box than calling it as a game. That was the real time learning experience.
Finally, the movie “Invictus” of Nelson Mandela gave us the sensible note on leader and treating the fellowmen with equal rights that they deserve. Self portrait and SWOT analysis were also done for understanding and analysing ourselves as and individual. We look forward for more togetherness and team bonding for the immense positivity that it offers to us to impact more. We thank our department coordinator, hod and the management staffs who supported us in conducting this immersion program.

Civil Marathon Week – Engineer’s day

Civil-Marathon-Week
Con Quiz
Yet another marathon week from our civil department!! After an appreciable success of our first marathon week, we, the KCT civilians have entered into another week full of events providing students a platform to exhibit their talents in different fields . As a part of this marathon week, a Con-quiz was conducted. Group of 7 teams consisting of three students per team participated in this event with an ultimate aim of bagging the first prize. Knowing that only one team is going to take away the cash prize, every team’s hardwork, skills and patience made this event a successful one. Winners of this event: 1) Sudharsan R.M (3rd year) 2) Prakash S.V (3rd year) 3)Aravind S.R (1st year).

Building Photography
In these events, the students and organizers are learned perspective things in technical and nontechnical things. In technical they learned the basic civil and interview questions at the same time non-technically they learned about management, leadership in every event and also team building activities in every events.

Bid to Build
CEA celebrates Engineers day throughout this week. Bid to Build was one such event conducted as a part marathon week. It replicated the IPL Auction strategies with 7 different teams representing large construction companies. At the beginning each teams were provided with a virtual credit of 100 crores and the criteria was set to buy buildings with different ratings under different sectors such as Malls, Theatres, Towers, etc. The teams who managed to buy buildings with higher rating & with a minimal budget own the game. This auction turned out to be an exciting event among the students as well as it provided knowledge over few famous buildings in the world.

PEP TALK
A poem for the Speaker
“Village life as a child from childhood
You went to the top of the intermediate course
You learned to correct both variables in debit mail with physics
In the sixth grade, the battery on top of the battery made you a gold medal at the Technical College
Five and a half hours of dedication to the word “single-minded devotion to your goal” to succeed in your work
Parents are proud to have a child like this
Teachers should be proud to teach a student like this
You have made a friend proud of his friendship
Veeramanikandan is the son of a hero who is going to set foot in ISRO in the future”
He shared his experience on the ISRO selection process.

PEP TALK 009 – MOMENT TO SMILE

PEP TALK
Why did the MONA LISA become one of the most famous paintings of all the time? That’s a question an incredible amount of people have asked themselves in the past. And one possible answer is this: Because of her unique smile.
Yes!! The topic is MOMENT TO SMILE. The last pep talk was given by Ms.Ajrithaa, 3rd yr civil department. She started with a small exercise and everyone woke up at that moment with a great smile. To all the broken hearts, life isn’t over yet. It still has a lot to teach you. For this moment, enjoy the pretty little things and wear a smile. To those who broke you, realize they were the one who made you smile too. Hear all mouths; still take your own decisions. Learn the lesson from one’s life, but never copy their life. This life is yours and your opponent isn’t the same as theirs.
The smile is “The symbol that was rated with the highest positive emotional content”

PEP TALK 13 – Public speaking

PEP TALK
Vishnu Dhyanesh. V from 2nd year B. Com PA KCLAS gave talk on public speaking.
We had a great session on do’s and don’ts about public speaking and stand up comedy. The main part for the public speech to be great is the body language. Then comes the vocal modulations and the content. So whatever the content may be if the body language is not good then the whole presentation would be ruined. Parts of the body to be taken care when speaking. Legs, hands, eyes, lips.
Eyes: Always maintain eye contact with the audience.
Legs: Use a certain pattern of walking don’t show your back which may not look majestic.
Hand: Wave your hands when explaining something this attracts audience attention.
Lips: Always smile smile smile.
A good joke contains 3 things:
The base , the high pitch, the punch line.
Base the audience with a good joke. Give them hype in the high pitch , and at last make them laugh through sudden fall as punch line.
These were the valuable insights shared by the Speaker. We thank him on behalf of Civil Department for his time. The PEP Talk series for this semester turned out to be an excellent end.
