From The HOD’S Desk

Dr.R.Subramanian
(Head of the Department)

Welcome to the Civil Engineering Department at ACET
Civil Engineers build the quality life which is one of the world’s most important careers. Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline and core branch that deals with the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as buildings, bridges, roads, dams, canals, etc. Civil Engineering today deals with power plants, railways, structures, water supply, irrigation, natural environment, sewer, flood control, transportation and traffic. In essence, Civil Engineering may be regarded as the profession that makes the world a more agreeable place to live.

The excellent infrastructure, teaching faculty of the best kind ensuring quality education such as interaction among students, parents and staff, along with a Training and Placement Cell ensure a bright future to our students. Thus we are confident that our Engineers will surely emerge as assets not only to this institution and to the organization they belong, but also to the country at large. I congratulate the team of faculty members and the students for their brilliant and original efforts.

I wish all the Students and Faculty a great academic career.

Today’s engineering is computer driven and to make the Civil Engineering students smart with computers, the following relevant civil engineering softwares have been taught to the students, as a value addition.

Auto CAD (Computer Aided Design Software)

civ

Auto CAD civil engineering software tools serve as a platform for 2D and 3D drawing and Building Information Modeling (BIM) and reducing the time taken to design, analyze, and implement changes. The tools also enable automation of time consuming tasks and facilitate easy creation,organization and sharing of information with advanced software.

STAAD.Pro (Structural Analysis And Design Software)civ

The commercial version STAAD.Pro is one of the most widely used Structural Analysis and Design Softwares. It supports several steel, concrete and timber design codes. It can make use of various forms of analysis from the traditional 1st order static analysis, 2nd order p-delta analysis, geometric non linear analysis or a buckling analysis. It can also make use of various forms of dynamic analysis from model extraction to time history and Response Spectrum Analysis.

Revit Architecture

civ

Autodesk Revit is a Building Information Modeling software which is very useful for architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, designers and contractors. When a user makes a Building, Model, or any other kind of object in Revit, they may use Revit’s rendering engine to make a more realistic image of what is otherwise a very diagrammatic model. It allows users to design a building and structure and its components in 3D, annotate the model with 2D drafting elements, and access building information from the building model’s database.

Primavera

civ

Primavera Systems, Inc was a private company providing Project Portfolio Management (PPM) software to help project-intensive organizations identify, prioritize, and select project investments and plan, manage, and control projects and project portfolios of all sizes.
