Students from Department of Civil Engineering participated in “National Conference on Urban Environmental Management in India” under the guidance of Er.Manpreet Singh, (Assistant Professor,  Department of Civil engineering, D.A.V University) held in Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur. They presented 9 research papers on various topics related to development of smart, safe and resilient cities and road networks with perspective of cities like Jalandhar, Jammu and Palampur.



In 2015, we started this technical fest, named INCEPTION with 14 events and 800 student’s participations. In year 2016 INCEPTION become much bigger with 15 events and approx. 1500 students participated from various universities and colleges. This time it was a Three-day techno cum fun festival INCEPTION Chapter 3  held on 10th–11thNovember, 2017. There were 16 events and more than 5000 institutes from Punjab and nearby states  participated in the event.


  • STUDENT’S VISIT TO I.I.T ROORKEE on 5-6 April 2018

Students from the department of Civil engineering D.A.V University Jalandhar namely Abhishai Godwin, Harrajdeep Singh and Roopali Sharma under the guidance of Er.Manpreet Singh Saini participated in the International Conference on Geomatics in Civil Engineering- 2018 (ICGCE).

The chief guest of the conference was Prof.Debra Laefer Ph.D.Professor of Urban Informatics Director of Citizen Science ,New York University, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA


Department of Civil Engineering organized a six-day Rajasthan tour for students of 3rd year. Students visited Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Jaipur in Rajasthan and learnt about the structural strength and heritage of the erstwhile forts. Jaisalmer is worldly known as the Golden city,due to yellow sand stones buildings.

The group visited Jaisalmer Fort, Mehrangarh Fort,City Palace Jaipur, Amber fort, the famous Brahma Temple, Pushkar.

Students visited BSF camp Jaisalmer and understood the dedication ,sacrifice and hardships of soldiers

Students were thrilled to experience desert safari, Thar jeep ride and camel cart safari.


Survey Camp

Surveying is the fundamental activity to be conducted for the purpose of planning and construction in order to accomplish a project.

Keeping in view its significance, the department of civil engineering conducts a survey camp after the fourth semester making the students to understand the field-based technical activities based upon their classroom learnings. To inculcate experimental-based critical learning in the students, the department conducts the survey camp in hilly areas, so that students are able to understand the topography of a particular location/ place/ region etc. Generally, the department selected Naddi, Upper Dharamsala a suitable area to conduct the survey camp.

The students conduct survey camp using methodologies; such as triangulation, traversing etc. and also utilize modern technologies viz. digital theodolite and total station. A survey camp takes 15 days to finish the fieldwork as per the curriculum in order to prepare the topographic plan of the concerned/ assigned area.

Some glimpses of the survey camps organized by the department of Civil Engineering have been displayed in this document, in which students perform various technical activities utilizing the relevant apparatus.
