Innovation in Teaching and Learning

  • 15CVL302: Design of Concrete Structures
    Students were given a term project in which they have to visit a construction site and collect information like footing details, reinforcement details, estimation details, structural details. They were asked to make a presentation using the data collected. Students were tested for their understanding about the differences and importance of the theoretical structural knowledge over practical knowledge. A report was submitted by team of 5 or 6 students at the end of the semester. The entire exercise was considered as a term project.
    Students were also asked to construct a standard macros excel sheet templates for designing simple structural elements like beams , columns, slabs and dog legged stair cases as a part of the term project.
