CE2303 RAILWAYS, AIRPORTS AND HARBOUR ENGINEERING

How to study this subject


OBJECTIVE
This course imparts the student’s knowledge of planning, design, construction and maintenance
of railway tracks. The students acquire proficiency in the application of modern techniques such
as GIS, GPS and remote sensing in Railway Engineering. The student develops skills on airport
planning and design with the prime focus on runway and taxiway geometrics. Students become
conversant with the definition, purpose, location and materials of coastal structures such as
piers, breakwaters, wharves, jetties, quays and spring fenders. The students acquire knowledge
on site reconnaissance for location and planning of harbours.
