Civil Engineering Lab


Our surveying lab offers supplemental experience in fundamental land surveying measurement methods for surveying courses, including precision steel taping methods to perform horizontal measurements, traditional transits and digital theodolites to perform angular measurements, and traditional and automatic levels for elevation measurements. In addition, students have opportunity to use total station equipment, which enables horizontal, vertical, and angular measurements to be made in one operation.

  • Digital level
  • Global Positioning System (GPS) for performing differential GPS surveys
  • Total stations
  • Autolevels


The geotechnical.   lab is equipped with testing systems for learning principles of strength of soil observing physical behaviors of common engineering soil under various loading conditions, and becoming familiar with modern sensors.

The soil lab provides academic and research services through performing all lab tests needed for analysis and study of soil characteristics and its properties. Various equipment consist of

  • Tensile strength test system
  • Torsion machine
  • Digital direct shear test machine
  • Unconfined compression machine
  • 1-D consolidometer


The Structural Analysis Lab facilitates in the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. Results of the analysis are used to verify a structure’s fitness for use.and the geology lab consists of various materials such as rocks, minerals etc. major instrument used in this lab are as under-

  • Three hinged arch application
  • Elastic properties of beam
  • Deflection of truss
  • Redundant truss


Concrete is the most widely used construction material. The concrete laboratory tests every component in the concrete mix design as well as the concrete mix itself. The lab provides evaluation of the plastic properties of the mix as well as the hardened properties. Various instruments in this lab includes

  • Universal testing machine
