GROUP A (CIVIL & MECHANICAL)

I CIVIL ENGINEERING PRACTICES
Buildings:

  • Study of plumbing and carpentry components of residential and industrial buildings. Safety
    aspects.

Plumbing Works:

  • Study of pipeline joints, its location and functions: valves, taps, couplings, unions, reducers,     and elbows in household fittings.
  • Study of pipe connections requirements for pumps and turbines.
  • Preparation of plumbing line sketches for water supply and sewage works.
  • Hands-on-exercise:
    Basic pipe connections – Mixed pipe material connection – Pipe connections with different    joining components.
  • Demonstration of plumbing requirements of high-rise buildings.
    Carpentry using Power Tools only:
  • Study of the joints in roofs, doors, windows and furniture.
  • Hands-on-exercise:
    Wood work, joints by sawing, planing and cutting.

II MECHANICAL ENGINEERING PRACTICES
Welding:
