CO2. Prepare plans using AutoCAD software

3. Introduction to LaTex

About the course: LaTeX is a software system for document preparation. LaTeX is widely used in academia for the communication and publication of scientific documents in many fields, including mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering, physics, economics, linguistics, quantitative psychology, philosophy, and political science. The course gives a detailed overview of latex and trains the students on how to prepare a report using it.

At the end of the course, students will be able to

CO1 .To familiarize with the programming features of latex

CO2. To identify and use syntax for the creation of tables, figures, and referring styles

CO3.To understand the features of the class file.

4. Overview of provisions in building rules, registration and approval procedures

About the course: This course intends to build a thorough knowledge among fresh engineering students about the procedures for getting registered as licensed engineer, Building rules and regulations, the documentation required for purchasing land, and getting building permits.

At the end of the course, students will be able to

CO1 . To make the students aware of the procedure of purchase and sale of land or property

CO2. To understand the existing building rules.

CO3. To make students aware of the procedure for obtaining an engineer’s license and sanction of the constructed building.

5. Building Information Modelling

About the course: Building information modeling (BIM) is a process supported by various tools, technologies and contracts involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. BIM software is used by individuals, businesses and government agencies who plan, design, construct, operate and maintain buildings and diverse physical infrastructures, such as water, refuse, electricity, gas, communication utilities, roads, railways, bridges, ports and tunnels. This course introduces the students to the basics of BIM and gives a hands-on experience in REVIT Architecture.

At the end of the course, students will be able to

CO1. Prepare plans of residential buildings

CO2. Prepare 3D models of residential buildings

6. Add on Course on water proofing and Insulation

About the course: The add on course gives importance to the methods and procedures of waterproofing and helps to mould the students to become consultants in the future.
