Highlights

Department of Civil Engineering (Graphic Era deemed to be University) conducted Survey Camp for B.Tech 3rd year(6th Sem.) students of Civil Engineering successfully from 22nd Feb. 2019 to 02nd March 2019 at Graphic Era Medical College Construction Site, Selaqui, Dehradun (Uttarakhand). This camp was aimed to groom civil engineering students with essential knowledge and exposure to real work, and to encourage leadership and teamwork skills. This survey camp resulted in encouraging and supporting students, emerging as leaders in several areas of academic provision. The 9 days camp was divided into various surveying exercises. The instruments used include Total station, Theodolite (transit), Compass (prismatic and surveyor), Ranging rods, Measuring Tape, Levelling Staff, Plane table. In the camp, all the students of Civil Engineering Department learned all the technical aspects which are required in Surveying. Department is extremely thankful to Graphic Era deemed to be University for their approval, guidance, and cooperation in conducting this camp successfully and for the active participation of students during the camp.

This seminar focuses on prevention, controlling reducing the inputs of hazardous substances, water, and air pollutants into aquatic ecosystem and atmosphere. The most cost-effective and most efficient device for control of the particular operation of pollution is intended. After selecting control device, it is necessary to monitor the emission levels and to ensure that it meets standards laid down by authority.
The attraction of the seminar is a display of various air and water quality assessment and monitoring instruments. The highlight of a seminar is the presentation of online analyzers for water pollution parameters, Gas chlorination & online SCADA System, use of flue gas analyzer, Mobile Van Set up and water purification System. The participation of renowned company of environment equipment like Toschon Toshiniwal group, Testo India limited, Millipore India limited is highly beneficial to the participants of the seminar. The programme was anchored by Dr. M.P. Singh, a presentation on the theme of seminar and vote of thanks was given by Prof. Mukesh Saxena., Graphic Era University.
