The Department of Civil Engineering, NIE, Mysore, exhibited the green building models designed and developed by the 4th semester students as part of their course work titled ‘Building Construction’, here on May 11.

This novel idea of designing green building is also a part of hands-on experience of the students. The design focuses mainly on foundation masonry works, different types of roofs, staircases, cladding, etc.

The models provide better insight of the subject and also the cost effective materials that can be used in construction.

This year the theme was ‘Energy efficient and green buildings.’

Dr. N. Suresh, Professor, Civil Engineering Department, guided the students.

Dr. G.L.Shekar, Principal, NIE, inaugurated the exhibition at the NIE Golden Jubilee Block by cutting ribbon. Dr. K. Sameer Simha, Professor in Education, RV Teachers’ College, was the guest of honour, according to Dr. G. Sarangapani, Professor & Head, Department of Civil Engineering, NIE.
