Moments is the national-level technical symposium of the department of civil engineering, NIT Trichy. Since its inception in 1992, MOMENTS, NIT Trichy has been running with a single aim: To acknowledge and show the significance of Civil Engineering in this transforming world and motivate students in core research. From insightful guest lectures to inventive and challenging events and workshops, this event promotes learning for brilliant minds all over the country.
Moments also helps students in building practical applications knowledge by educating them on industry-level research and developments. Entirely run by students, this organization maintains a good role in developing creative and management skills in students while maintaining excellent team spirit.

Unleash your technical knowledge and assert your intellectual skills as you take up the Civigyan consisting of two rounds.
The contestants are required to solve the problem statement in CAD in a specific period. The Participants, will be given a specified area (with conditions) and the participants will have to come up with an economical plan to move the panel of judges.
‘Quote or Quit’, an Estimation and Bidding Competition, where the contestants will be provided with a plan and other required materials and will be required to quote an amount by the end of the event. The top two contestants to quote the least valid prices will be bestowed with cash prizes.
“PowerPoint Presentation”, an event where you’ll be tasked with preparing a presentation based on a subtopic related to structures, which will be given on the spot. You will be given a time of 90 minutes to come up with the presentation.
Tech marathon event is conducted prior to MOMENTS, a quiz type contest where all you have to do is answer easy questions in time and walk away with a free workshop.
Canny column design is an event which tests the practicality of the competitor this event challenges budding designers from all over India to make designs for a specified dimension of column, incorporating the support conditions provided.
Paper presentation presents an ideal platform for those civil enthusiasts who wish to present their creative and innovative ideas and gain recognition. Submissions are taken from both structural as well as non-structural categories.
In this ever-expanding concrete jungle with countless structures, buildings, monuments and breath-taking bridges, getting the right design mix is a skill that pays the bill. We give you an opportunity to put your mortar making skills to test.
A challenge like none other, this event is designed to test the surveying skills of the contestants on field.
Let the doors to creativity and innovation open as each of the teams (with a maximum of 3 contestants) will be provided with materials as simple as ice-cream sticks and threads to design a truss which withstands the assigned target load.
Construction industry is turning to the use of environmentally friendly materials. The increasing global warming has raised concerns about the extensive use of Portland cement due to the high amount of CO2 emission, depletion of natural resources.
Whether you are building a simple residential building or the next Burj Khalifa, understanding the structural behaviour and integrity of your building is extremely important to ensure the safety of its occupants
To thrive as a pro in designing multi-storey buildings is still an aspiration for many. Fret Not! Moments is here to present a workshop on ETABS, which is the ultimate software package for structural analysis.
The usage of conventional construction materials such as river sand and crushed stone cannot be appreciated for the upcoming decades, because over exploitation of those resources results in severe environmental issues. The application, difficulties and use cases on the field will be addressed during this resourceful workshop.
This workshop is aimed at introducing the major applications and examples of geotechnical engineering projects of the industry relevant to today’s society. This will show the magic of ground engineering unfold before your eyes and display the beauty of designing sustainable futures.
The rigid pavements are generally constructed using cement concrete represented as Pavement Quality Concrete (PQC) The outcome of the rigid pavement design includes stress calculation, arriving optimum POC thickness. dowel bar design and joint details for an estimated traffic proposed.
All structures are built either on the earth, in the earth, or with the earth. To know about the planning, execution, and interpretation of f geotechnical site explorations in natural soil and rock concerning the design and construction of structures.
The ever-increasing demand of modern buildings results in need of more column space, tall structures, ductile and faster construction time. Structures built with RCC do not provide such features and lack the ability to last for hundreds of years. Mark your calendars and be present at this titillating Steel construction workshop.
Are you a civil enthusiast who is fascinated by the towering buildings and breath-taking monuments around you? Ever thought about how to construct better fire proof buildings with less deadweight on the structure? Moments brings you an exclusive workshop on Semi lightweight wood Ash aggregate concrete.
Take a break from the normal classes and dive deep into the profound subject of Geotechnical Instrumentation, where Failure Analysis of Geotechnical Structures will be taught.
Application of the concept of reliability in achieving the desired level of service during the pavement's design life has also contributed in making durable and long-lasting pavements. Transportation enthusiasts out there attend this mind-boggling workshop which will make you an expert in designing a Flexible pavement.
If design is what intrigues you and dimensions are what you play with? Moments is elated to present a workshop on Autodesk Revit.
Ever wondered how engineers can design structures, be it steel, timber, concrete or aluminium, on time and in budget, regardless of complexity? Moments presents an exclusive workshop on STAAD software.
