Long ago, in the shadows of time, it was felt that the study of civil engineering was incomplete if the students were devoid of Mountains.. yes.. the mighty mountains.. People realized that it is must to practice civil engineering at a site, posed with maximum threats.. at a site, where the construction is most challenging.. at a site, where an engineer has to count on the limited available options and exercise them fully to serve the purpose.. the real-time engineering..
well then.. answering to this very cause, like every year, Delhi College of Engineering has organized the Survey Camp for it's third year batch of Civil Engineering, from 26th December 2008 to 4th January 2009.. some of the important information about the tour are as follows...
- The venue of the Survey Camp has been fixed at Swami Ram Tirth ashram, Rajpur, Dehradun.
- The buses(two nos.) for Dehradun will leave the college at 9:30PM on 26th December,2008.
- Students must report in the Department of Civil Engineering, DCE, by 7:00PM on 26th December 2008.
- Dinner for students on 26th December, must be arranged by the students themselves, and not by the management.
- Students will be provided separate rooms where 3-4 students can accommodate.
- The bedding will be provided by the management. But the students are advised to carry their own Bed Sheets and Shawls.
- The aim of the Surveying project to be completed during the camp is, "To draw a topographic map of the given area".

***Work will be divided amongst the groups and a check will be kept by the coordinator.
***The marking will not be done solely on the basis of the Surveying work, but also on the basis of the involvement of the students in their respective group activity.
*** Cigarette and alcohol consumption during the tour will be dealt very sternly. Students are advised to stay away, as this may lead to severe damages to the marks they obtain in the 2-credit subject.
***We shall always remember that... this is not an outing, or just another fun-filled tour with our friends. We will carry the reputation of the college on our shoulders and we will be representing the shine that Delhi College of Engineering has earned over the years. So realization of this very fact will help us to behave in the correct manner. Special arrangements will be provided for the fun but fun should not never be mixed with chaos and mayhem.
***Wishing you all the very best and hoping that the tour succeeds to become a memorable hearty experience, this is Gangeyyo signing off...
