SOCCE has taken an initiative to organise Industrial Visits for the students of the Civil Engineering Department which is aimed to provide exposure to the outer world and get students know things out of the books.The first 'Industrial Visit' was organised for 2nd year students. 15 students along with two Research Scholars went two sites - Howrah Metro Station (East-West Junction) and Bara Bazar where the Deepest Ventilation shaft is under construction.Also, we would like to thanks our beloved HOD Sir Prof. Anirban Gupta and Prof. Ambarish Ghosh , for extending the support from department and keeping us encouraged all the times. This would not have been possible without them.
An Industrial Visit to Simoco Sanhita Township Project in Rajarhat was organized by SOCCE for the 3rd year Civil engineering students on Saturday, 29th Feb 2020. Around 70 students under the supervision of Professor Anuj Budhkar went for the trip by bus. Industrial visit, considered as one of the strategic methods of teaching, lets students to know the things practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. The students were divided into 4 groups and were guided by the site engineers who enriched the students with their knowledge. They got the opportunity to gain full awareness of all the things they were taught in class from strip foundation, pile foundation to sewage treatment plant and were exposed to practical working environment. Students even got to see the models of 1BHK and 3BHK flats. The enthusiasm in students as well as the site engineers was commendable. The students were provided with snacks and lunch. After visiting the site, the students gained combined knowledge of both theory and practical and it also urged them to think more deeply about their future. Overall the experience was really good and fun and students are eagerly waiting for another trip after this successful visit.
The Industrial Visit was an exposure trip, which was organised by SOCCE on 29th February, 2020. 20 students from UG 2nd year went to Salboni and it took around 4hours to reach the cement plant. Students gathered around at 6.30am infront of the 1st lobby and left the college by 7am under the guidance of our faculty Dr. Debojyoti Pandit and Research Scholars. They reached the destination by 11:00am. Among the other JSW Cement factories, Salboni Cement factory has the best cement grinding unit for Portland Slag Cement (PSC) which makes it the largest cement factory in Eastern India with a capacity of 2.4 MTPA. We are indebted to Mr. Arindam De, Ms. Jayashree Kar and specially Mr. Dasgupta (Zonal Head) for guiding the Students through the Salboni plant and helping them to understand it better. Students visited their Central Control Room, Cement lab, the XRF machine (which is used to determine the percentage of different components present in the cement), their packaging unit and at last they introduced us to their Concrete lab called 'Concrete ki Pathshala'. Lastly to make this visit a memorable one, they gave each one of them a memento and brochure. It was an inexplicable journey for all the students.
