Webinar on Industrial application of CAD/CAE/CAM
Department of Civil & Mechanical Engineering organized a “Webinar on Industrial application of CAD/CAE/CAM” from ‘CADMAXX SOLUTIONS’ on 05.06.2020. The program speaker was Mr Ashwin, Technical manager CADMAXX Solutions. The event was presided by Dr Rathnakar G, HOD ME & Mr Manu Vijay, HOD CV. The event was coordinated by Mr Yathish N, Asst Prof. ME and Mr Shashank P, Asst Prof. CV. Student of all semesters was involved for this webinar.
Mr Ashwin explained the mechanical industrial structure, its working principle and the domains involved in the process. He also emphasized the process parameters influencing the work in these industries. He explained the importance of CAD/CAM/CAE in civil & mechanical industries and the training provided by their institute in this regard. He elaborated the possible opportunities in industry during this COVID-19 pandemic.
The session was interactive and knowledgeable for the students. Further, students expressed their queries regarding career development in CAD/CAM/CAE. Mr Ashwin explained the possible approach for the start up of their career based on domain interest.
EXTENSIVE SURVEY CAMP
Extensive survey camp was conducted at Karighatta, Srirangapatna for the 6th sem students as a part of curriculum. The Camp was aimed to groom students with essential knowledge and to expose them to the real work, road work, bund construction, town planning and water supply connection for the network.
Project 1:- Reconnaissance survey
The reconnaissance survey is an extensive study of an entire area that is used for a road or airfield. Its purpose is to eliminate those routes or sites which are impractical or unfeasible and to identify the more promising routes or sites. It is to examine general character of the area for deciding the most feasible routed for detailed studies. A field survey part may inspect a fairly broad stretch of land along the proposed projects.
Project 2:- Water supply & Sanitary Project
Students performed works such as establishment of source of water supply, purification work for enhancing quality of water, establishment of water pumps for lifting of water from treatment plants, storage reservoir and design the layout for distribution system.
Project 3:- Highway Projec
Project 4:- Town Planning
Town Planning is the art and science of ordering the use of land and setting of buildings and communication routes so as to secure the maximum practicable degree of economy, convenience, and beauty. Town Planning was done by “Traverse Radiation method”. Reconnaissance survey was done in fixing the boundary. Area was calculated by closed traverse using chain and tape.
Project 5:- New Tank Project
Fly leveling was carried out in the field to transfer the reduced level from a given permanent benchmark situated as near as possible to the starting point of the project. Longitudinal and cross section along the proposed central line of the tank bund, block levels at the waste weir site, capacity contours and Canal alignment work was carried out by the students.
Project 6:- Old Tank Project
The objective of this project was to remove the silt accumulated and increasing the bund height for an existing bund for its restoration which was conducted near college surrounding.

“REAL ESTATE-FUTURE THOUGHT”
Students of department of civil engineering participated in a student interaction program organised by NAREDCO, Mysore. The program was intended for promoting an interaction of students with industry stalwarts there by providing the making students aware of what is expected in industry by them.
Some of the Chief Guests are Sri Rajeev Talwar [Chairman-NAREDCO National, CEO, DLF Ltd], Dr. Niranjan Hiranandani [President- NAREDCO National, CEO-Hiranandani Group], Ar.Sudheendra. G. K [Architect-NAREDCO Mysuru], Dr. Raghavendra Prasad [Structural Engineer NAREDCO Mysuru]
Chief Guest of the function Dr. Niranjan Hiranandani opined that the graduates should take up such works which provide satisfaction and happiness. He insisted that graduates should seek opportunities in our home town rather than seeking it somewhere else. He also opined that one has to be good with the basics and be ready to learn new things with changing times.
The program also included discussions on the practical applicability of new products developed and on minimizing the gap between academics and the real practice by starting an industry interaction program comprising students of different colleges of Mysore.
