Civil Engineering Association Immersion Program
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
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).
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.
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.
Cube Cast event was conducted as a part of this celebration to enrich their practical knowledge. The event bonded not only the cement and aggregates but also the Juniors Seniors of our Department. Students moulded concrete as well as their knowledge through this event. First year students were excited over the insights and the network this event provided. Now, the participants are awaiting for the day their cubes will be tested on.
CEA celebrates Marathon week throughout this week. Knowledge hunt was one such event conducted as a part marathon week. It replicated the tresure hunt strategies with 7 different teams. — At the beginning the clue is given to each team, with the help of clue every team to find the nect clue by the technical wordings. It is organized my 3rd year student of our department Dhileepan.
The technical event to present ideas for a problem statement was held for Second year students with profoundness. The current challenges of the industry were given to them with which they formulated the ideas to change for the betterment. Solutions were proposed for the Sustainable Living using Eco-friendly Structures, Usage of Renewable Materials, IOT in Civil Engineering, Automation processes addressing the Pollution and Skilled Labour issues. To highlight the importance of Journal Publication, our beloved professor Dr. Sathyamoorthy explained briefly about the Paper Publication processes and motivated the participants to publish a paper towards their work. On a whole, it was indeed an important event for the CEA for impacting and guiding the students through such events to take their works to next level.

PEP TALK 008 – Expert from CADD Centre
PEP TALK 009 – MOMENT TO 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 10 -The Journey of an Entrepreneur Who Inspired Him
PEP TALK 11 – Perfect Engineering Defence
Finally, He dwelled into major impeccable topic “Defence”. He questioned everyone that “Are you proud to be Tamilan?” In addition to that referred an officer named ‘Natrajan Parthiban’ who is a proud tamilan and his contribution towards Indian defence is amazing.
Why not defence? It is not only a job, it is more than that and a dissolvable part of life.
In the world that strives for peace and prosperity, Many people are dyeing but in army only 30 members die and he also spoke about known sorgam , unknown sorgam and other sorgam. He has insights over “How to go to defence after 12th and college degree”. Be yourself, don’t change for others words”. 3rd year ajritha gave the vote of thanks.
PEP TALK 12 – Life is what you made it
PEP TALK 13 – 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.
