SPACE

Society In Pursuit Of Advances in Civil Engineering

SPACE is an endeavor of students and faculty (NCU) to enhance the technical fervor amongst the students and to introduce them to the world of astonishing structures, techniques and designs.

SPACE has been a very active society since past 5 years ever since it has been inaugurated. The founders and the members of the society have worked actively for the development of the society as well as the development of the practical view over the theoretical view of the students of our esteemed university. It’s the duty as well as keen dedication of the members and the faculty to clarify their concepts as well as ignite a new practical and innovative approach amongst the highly potential masterminds of our university. It gives the initiation to the young minds to enhance their knowledge by practically implementing the concepts of their engineering curriculum as well as giving them an insight on team building, team work and project execution, the skills very much required in today’s industry.

SPACE is a kaleidoscope of engineers from different streams like Structures, Geotech, Surveying, Transportation and Environmental Engineering.

A junior or a senior, we welcome all sorts of talents. Also for the welfare of the students all our team members are available with no time boundaries to attend any kind of problem or doubt they may face.

This is an initiative to engrave in students the love for technology and to incline their minds towards the practical based knowledge.

With an aim of bringing new innovations in the field of civil engineering, the team has plans to bring up a large number of events, workshop and seminar to accomplish their aim.

SPACE has organized various events like the SPACE Day , Quizzup, Mould it up, The Great Debate, which are inter and intra University events and continuously motivates and encourages the students the not just participate but also organize the events.

 

 

ASCE :

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS

IRSC-Student's Chapter :

Indian Road Safety Campaign (IRSC) Student’s Chapter

Indian Road Safety Campaign, a voluntary organization running under the umbrella of Transport Research and Injury Prevention Program, IIT Delhi, refers to improve the road safety rules and also make the stakeholders – who are the reason for road accident deaths, aware about safety rules.

IRSC started as a project under National Service Scheme, IIT Delhi and currently have grown to be a youth lead organization with help Transport Research and Injury Prevention Program operating in various national engineering colleges like IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, BITS Pilani, DTU, SRCC etc on our board. IRSC has also been associated with schools and various NGOs like Arrive Safe, Safe Road Foundation etc. There are various methodologies like awareness, internships, workshops and competitions through which IRSC has been able to sensitize and impact 5,00,000+ people and work presently in 35+ cities and 7+ states.

IRSC helps in developing Business-Model of the projects and helps in Indian Road Safety Campaign overall development and expansion, in formation of proposals and projects.

Activities to be conducted by IRSC Chapter of Department of Civil & EE, NCU, Gurugram

  • Guest Lectures round the academic year.
  • Workshop on ‘Role of first responders in road safety’ with partner hospitals.
  • Awareness sessions about road safety rules in nearby schools.
  • Policy Internship, Technical Internship and Operational Internship opportunities for B.Tech. students.

DEPARTMENTAL INDUSTRY INTERACTION CELL (DIIC) :

 DEPARTMENTAL INDUSTRY INTERACTION CELL (DIIC)

The DIIC is being proposed to facilitate an interaction between the department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, The NorthCap University and the Industry which is the need of the hour. This will have great bearing on the Engineering Curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to engineering students and subsequent placement of young graduating engineers in industries across the country. With the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to outside world, competition among industries has become stiff. Similarly, there is an urgent need to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies and increase their employability by exposing them to latest technologies and engineering methodologies.

These objectives can only be achieved well by bridging the gap between industry and the academic institute. However, to bridge a gap between the theoretical and practical aspects of the curriculum, Corporate Interaction is extremely important. The Department Industry Interaction Cell recognizes this need and addresses it through the regular associations and meeting with Corporate and provides industry exposure to the students and enables them to pick up skills besides what is being imparted in the classrooms.

IMPORTANCE OF DEPARTMENT INDUSTRY INTERACTION CELL

The complexities at the work place brought about by the rapid technological changes, paradigm shifts in education and training and the growing demand for skills training, call for harmonized efforts to reverse the acute skills shortage in many developing countries. Industry institute interaction allows exploring endless possibilities in working in synergy and deriving a new focus to address socio-economic and technology driven challenges. One of the challenges in the present times is the rapid pace of technology.

OBJECTIVES

  • To facilitate industrial trainings and internships for students and identify student project work in Industries.
  • To encourage Industry to collaborate in Industry Study Tour Programmes (ISTP) and placement of students in Industries.
  • To facilitate interaction with R&D Organizations for conducting joint research work involving faculty/scientists and students/research scholars etc.
  • To encourage faculty exchanges - getting professionals from industry as visiting faculty or adjunct professors for short or long periods and deputation of faculty to industry to gain industrial experience and/or work on projects in industry.
  • Stir Curriculum development- associating experts from industry in curriculum planning and review. Personality development workshop for students relating with soft skills (communication skills / personality development).
  •  Encourage Guest lectures by eminent personalities, academics, leading industrialists at regular intervals to update the students’ knowledge.
  • To promote technical festivals/open houses/student design competitions.
  • Institute can provide services to industry such as Library and information services to the industries for better Industry -Institute synergy.
  •  Facilitate R&D Laboratories sponsored by industries at the Institute.
  • Scholarships/fellowships instituted by industries at the Institute for students
  • Practical training such as implant training, industrial visits, internships and project works for our students in industries.
  • Knowledge sharing between the industries and institutions.
