2017/10/03 Surveying project

Location: Sarvajanik College of Engineering & Technology, Surat. 

Time: 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM

We had to perform two practicals based on our syllabus on that day. The whole class gathered at the Surveying lab at 8:30 am onwards . We were divided into two batches. The first practical was Gale’s Traverse & the second practical was Plotting the Curves.

Gale’s Traverse Table:

In this practical, we plotted the main stations and the building stations on the field. We performed many activities like chaining, offsetting, measuring the distances and measuring the angles between main stations. After that the calculation was done and the sheets were drawn.

Offsetting from long chord:-

We already complete all the calculation of this curve means length of tangent,angle and offsets length.After it we directly plot the curve by measuring angle with the use of theodolite and horizontal distance with the use of tape.This curve was plot by batch-A

Curve was ploted by Batch-A on field

Product development canvas

Learning Design Engineering

This is the last sheet for Design Engineering 1-A. We had to identify the problems and the possibile solutions from the ideation canvas. After that, we had to think about a product that can be developed for solving the problem. 

Purpose: why are you making the product

People: for whom you are making the product

Product Experience: what are you expecting from the product

Product Functions: what your product can do

Product Features: what are the qualities of your product

Components: what your product includes

Customer Revalidation: Thoughts of the people for whom you are making the product

2017/10/13 GAG project

Subject: Geotechnics and Applied Geology

Geotechnics and Applied Geology chart


We had to make a chart based on Geotechnical Properties of Different Soils found in surat different zones. We divided the zone in our group and each member collected the data of provided zone. Then all the data were assembled and we made a chart. On 13th October, 2017 we gave the presentation in our lab.

Different Geotechnical Properties

Permeability:-it is the property of the soil to transmit the water and air through it.

Liquid Limit:-it is the water content at which the soil behaves practically like a liquid but has small shear strength.

Plastic Limit:-it is defined as the moisture content where the thread breaks apart at a diameter of 3mm.

Porosity:-It is define as the ratio of volume of voids to total volume of soil in a given sample.

Void ratio:– It is a ratio of volume of voids to total volume of soil solid in a given sample of soil.

The data of these geotechnical properties for different zones of surat is given in the picture above

Ideation canvas


In this ideation canvas we have to find the difficulty from our domain.And find the maximum possible solution for the difficulties.


  • To list out people who are facing the problem.
  • Write down the activities done by them.
  • List out where, when and how they are facing the problematic situations.
  • Identify the problems.
  • Think about possible solutions. Write down the props used for them.

2017/07/25 Spoken tutorial

Online tutorial watching


Online Tutorial Class was conducted by our Civil Engineering Faculties Prof. Payal Zaveri and Prof. Manisha Vashi. After logging in our accounts and complete the entry process, we watched online video tutorials of Libre Office Base. After that the feedback form was filled by us about the videos. After three weeks, the test was conducted. We appeared for the test and the certificate was generated.

Time: 1 PM to 2 PM

Event Name: Diwali Card Making

Event Type: Non Technical

Diwali card made by us

We had participated in the group of four people. We had to make Diwali Card for Indian Soldiers who protect us from all the enemies. There were more than fifty groups. All of them made diwali cards for soldiers along with wishes.

2017/08/19  Empathy Mapping

Empathy canvas

Learning Design Engineering

Empathy means understanding and  awareness of other’s feelings. Empathy means feeling as someone. With Empathy Mapping, learner can understand the emotions of a user. 


Identify the user. Fill some basic informations like Name, Age, Number of Family Members in the first section.

Identify the stakeholders. Stakeholders are the persons who are involved in the activities of user.

Note down all the activities which are performed by that user. 

Create a story. Understand the emotions of the user. Think about what he/she will do in this situation and make Happy & Sad stories. 

For Empathy Mapping,

Avoid enforced observations.

User expectations play big role.

No step-1 for thinking approch of design thinking.

Avoid hypocrite thinking.

Enter to emotion of user.

Organic Evolution of Technology.

2017/09/16 Ozone day

Location: Reading Hall of SCET, Surat.

Time: 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Creative drawing on ozone layer

The World Ozone Day was celebrated at our collage. The function was organized by ME Environmental Civil Students.They gave us some information about the event like The ozone layer, a fragile shield of gas, protects the Earth from the harmful portion of the rays of the sun, thus helping preserve life on the planet.The phaseout of controlled uses of ozone depleting substances and the related reductions have not only helped protect the ozone layer for this and future generations, but have also contributed significantly to global efforts to address climate change; furthermore, it has protected human health and ecosystems by limiting the harmful ultraviolet radiation from reaching the earth.

They have made a model based on the topic. They have also prepared a song for the same.

Model made on the topic of ozone


Learning of Design engineering

Location:- Sarvajanik College of Engineering & Technology, Surat

Time:- 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM

AEIOU is the group activitiy which we performed in a group under the design engineering 1A Course. 

AEIOU summary sheet

In this activity we observed all five components of AEIOU.Where A of AEIOU stands for Activity. Enjoy for Environment. I for Interaction. O for Objects and U for Users. We make different 5 sheet for different component by writing words make doodles ,stick photo etc.After this finally we make one AEIOU summary sheet.

Mind mapping

Learning Design Engineering

Location: Sarvajanik College of Engineering & Technology, Surat.

Time: 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Introduction of Mind Mapping

Mind mapping is generally represent and express your idea by graphically.In this we can express our thoughts or idea by doodles, sketch,line etc.

Mind mapping


We have done this activity in group of four people. We had visited Railway station five times.Our main idea is railway station and then we think about small idea related to railway station and express it by doodles, sketch and lines.
