The extra-curricular development of the students is also important as the academic development. With this idea in mind, Civil Engineering Department, Amal Jyothi College of Engineering formulated three clubs named- Model Making Club, CAD Club and Environment Club for the extra-curricular and soft skill development of the students. All the students of the department from 2nd year, 3rd year and 4th year is divided into three clubs according to the interest of the student. Class teachers report on individual student about the academic and non-academic performance is also counted for group division. Each club is guided by two faculties and all the sub groups in each club are also mentored by two faculties. An expert committee headed by the HOD, CE functions for the overall development and monthly assessment of the club. The details of the clubs are as follows:
MODEL MAKING CLUB
From the initiation of Civil Engineering Department, Model Making Club forms an integral part of the Department. It enhances and utilizes the creative spirit within the students for making working and still models. As the academic year begins, ideas about the models to be made in that year are collected from the students and the students are then divided into groups as per the requirement. Each group is mentored by two faculties. Monthly assessment for each group is made by an expert committee headed by the HOD.
This club helps in the overall soft skill development of the students. The objective of the club is to impart the following skills to students:
- Architectural idea development and formulation
- To work in a team
- Time frame management
- To enhance drawing and model making skills
Many real life relevant models were made by different model making clubs of the department.
Computer Aided Design (CAD) Club also functions from the initiation of the Department. A four faced development program is the main highlight of this club. This includes AutoCAD Designing, Revit Architectural Modelling, STAAD Designing, and Primavera Scheduling. Students in this club are divided into four groups according to their skill in the four fields which is assessed by the respective class teacher according to their academic and non-academic performances. Each group is mentored by two faculties. Monthly assessment for each group is made by an expert committee headed by the HOD.
This club aims at the overall computer skill development of the student in Civil Engineering related areas. Real life problems were given to students to tackle, which is being collected from the industries. The objectives of the club are to impart the following skills to students:
- Adequate and efficient CAD skills in the arena of Civil Engineering
- Time frame management
- To be familiar with real life problems and the ideas to tackle it.
- To work as a team to solve big problems
The environment we live face the most critical and dangerous problems today. We, Civil Engineers are having a higher responsibility to preserve and protect the nature and environment for tomorrow. Keeping this idea in mind, Civil Engineering Department, Amal Jyothi College of Engineering formulated a club named Environment Club in 2009. The major objectives of this club are:
- To identify major problems faced by our mother earth
- To find the best remedies possible for those problems
- To create an awareness to the public and to the students about the need and methodologies for environment preservations
- To motivate the future generations about a better tomorrow
In the beginning of each year, 4-5 major problems are identified by the clubs which is having high impact value over the environment. Then the students are divided into required number of groups to find the best possible remedies for the problems identified. Each group is mentored by two faculties. Monthly assessment for each group is made by an expert committee headed by the HOD.
