Concrete and Form Work
Centre of Excellence on “CONCRETE AND FORMWORK” in association with L&T Construction, Chennai was inaugurated in the academic year 2017-18 with the prime objective to impart design of formwork and inculcate in the students the present industrial needs on formwork, bridging the gap between industry and academia. Centre of Excellence on “Concrete and formwork” will help the trained students to design different formwork systems and concrete mix proportions suitable for various complex projects fulfilling the needs of the construction industry.
A set of students are selected through aptitude test conducted by L & T Construction to develop their knowledge and skill on Concrete and formwork. The selected students undergo hands on training to understand the different materials and components used in design of formwork at L & T skill training centre, CSTI, Kanchipuram followed by in-house training at R.M.K.E.C. After the training, students get themselves prepared to face the interview process by L & T Construction and other leading construction companies. During pandemic the training was conducted online followed by placement process.
