Dr. B. Mahalingam – Associate Professor
I have about 33 years of experience in teaching and research. Worked across various technical institutions at various positions from Associate lecturer to Associate Professor. I have been awarded Ph.D., from Anna University for my research on ‘Self Compacting Concrete’
I have good experience in setting up various research labs like Strength of Materials lab, Fluid mechanics and Machinery lab,
Dynamics lab, Concrete and Highway Engineering lab for the undergraduates. My experience in the field of Civil Engineering has given me the capability of handling individual construction projects such as Engineering College Buildings, Library Blocks, and Erection lab works.
I work efficiently as an individual contributor and also as a team player. I seek new challenges and think out-of-the-box while looking for creative solutions to any given problem. I am a quick learner and adapt to any situation to provide the best outcome at all times. I have proven experience in handling Exam cell for and Engineering College for about 10 Consecutive years and also acted as Chief superintendent and Chairman in Central valuation board for Engineering College exams are the proof of my teamwork.
I have published a book on Construction techniques, equipment and practices for Civil Engineering Under regulation 2013. I have
conducted Anna university-approved FDTP on CE 6601Design of Reinforced Concrete and Brick Masonry Structures. I am a Mission 10X trained faculty by Wipro and having membership in various professional bodies like ISTE(2080), IEI(M-11393540), IOV(F-11359), ICI(5886), IRC(271952), ACE (1408L), INSDAG(049) and ISMRTT(LM 1977). I am a Certified Chartered Engineer of Institution of Engineers (INDIA)
