Survey Lab :

Surveying is the science and art of making all essential measurements to determine the relative position of points or physical and cultural details above, on, or beneath the surface of the Earth, and to depict them in a usable form, or to establish the position of points or details. Surveying practice lab is well equipped. We have procured Theodolite, Dumpy level, Auto level, Chain, Prismatic Com5pass, Surveyor's Compass, Ceylon Ghat tracer, Box sextant, Hand level, Substance bar and Plane table with accessories, levelling staff, Optical square, Pantograph, Planimeter and Total station. We are well equipped to conduct Extensive survey camp. We usually conduct this extensive survey camp for two weeks in Kaiwara. This gives practical knowledge of all type of projects.


The Civil department library has around 150 books and main library have around 19932 books. Library Department also subscribes hard copies of some of the National and International Journals/ Magazines.
