Department of Civil Engineering, SSET has been in the forefront when it comes to the involvement of technology in the betterment of society. One such opportunity that the department obtained was the Rebuild Kerala Initiative which mainly included the surveying of roads and preparation of DPR for upgrading them. A team of students and faculty were involved in the survey work and completed about 10 projects in Ernakulam district. Government of Kerala as part of Rebuild Kerala Initiative selected 12 Engineering colleges from all over Kerala to be a part in the quality control and inspection of road construction and SSET is one among them.
Survey works related to Pindani-Sreepuram road, Vayalodam-Thadikakadvu road, Kaipetty bridge, Valavazhi road, Deepthi Nazreth road, Vellikulangara-Alavi center road, Edathod padam road were completed by the SSET team. The initiative helped both students and faculty in improving their practical skills and it was a major step in the area of experiential learning. The department aims to involve more students in this work as it is a great opportunity for them to have hands on training and serve the society at the same time.
