Delhi engineering students find Ooty terrain special for 'survey camp'

The hill town is not only a summer retreat to the tourists but also turning into a suitable and special area for 'survey camps' for college students.

Around 100 civil engineering students from Delhi College of Engineering have arrived in Ooty for a five-day survey camp. The students chose Ooty for their camp as their seniors had a wonderful learning experience last year.

Stating that field study in Ooty is hand-on approach, Aman, a second year civil engineering student, said, "The undulation and the elevation of the hill town is interesting to conduct the survey camp."

He said last year a group of civil engineering students from their college came to Ooty for a survey camp. They found the camp extremely interesting and very much useful. Hence, we too chose Ooty for our survey camp, he added.

According to Isha, another engineering student from the college, the weather in Ooty is favourable for field survey and the change in the elevation is very significant. "We can't find this kind of elevation anywhere in Delhi," she said.

"We are exposed to different kind of practical experiences here in the mountain during the survey camp wherein we are used to do our practical within our college campus. This experience will help us in our profession in future," said Ashitha. "Ooty is more compatible to conduct a survey compared to other cities, with less traffic and the slopes are standard and significant to scale," said Mayank, another student.

As the monsoon rain is active here, the students might have to extend with their survey programme for another couple of days.
