CAD AND STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING STUDIO LAB
Location MB 120
Working Hours: 9 AM – 4 PM
Extended Opening: On Special Request
Lab in Charge: Dr. B. Rajeevan
The CAD and Structural Engineering Studio Lab provides support for classroom and research activities. It complements other computational resources of the College by offering computer hardware and software aimed at the specific requirements of B Tech in Civil Engineering and M Tech in Computer Aided Structural Engineering (CAS). It is a well-equipped lab with around 50+ Desktop PC’s and 15+ high end Laptops. Lab hardware includes high-performance workstation PCs, high end laptops and a large format plotter. A suite of civil engineering software including the latest versions of AutoCAD, MATLAB, SAP2000, ETABS, STAAD PRO, STRAP, ANSYS, ABAQUS and LS-DYNA are available to students on a walk-in basis.
1. The CAD Lab is to be used only for GCEK CE & CAS courses related work.
2. All CAD PC Lab Users must have an account to use the computers in the Lab.
3. Do not bring FOOD OR DRINK into the lab. Violators will be asked to leave.
4. Please help to keep the lab clean.
5. Priority will be given to users of application software.
6. During high use periods, word processing, spreadsheets, email and internet access will be discouraged.
