The Environmental Engineering, Hydraulic and Geotechnical Laboratories are equipped with analytical instruments for the testing of water and wastewater samples, jar tests and hydrology studies, testing equipment for measurements in pipe and open channel, determination of pipe friction and fitting losses and the study of open channel flow characteristics. The laboratory also provides facilities for the testing of various physical properties and compressibility characteristics of soils. Experiments related to shear strength and compressibility of soil are fully computerized with data loggers to capture data and soil software to process the data.
A wide range of geotechnical instruments are also available as teaching aids. Hands-on experiments are designed to help students reinforce their understanding of modules such as Environmental Microbiology, Water Technology, Water Supply, Water Reclamation Technology, Hydrology & Hydraulics as well as Geotechnical Engineering.
