Innovation in Teaching and Learning

  • 15CVL442: Concrete Technology
    To get more insight into the properties and nature of concrete, a hands on training session was arranged with the support of L&T Engineers Er L S Kannan(JGM &Head concrete management department) and Er.Umamaheswaran V. This gives a different experience to the students about the theory and practical implementation in the field.
    Student got an opportunity to apply their class room learning to field. This improved their ability to prepare concrete with required property with less number of trial.
