Rationale
Building Estimation and Costing is a vital part of Civil Engineering. No project can begin without the total Building Estimation and Costing done by the Engineer. The entire Cost of construction and the infrastructure used for the purpose of construction is estimated and the final costing is done on the basis of which a certain percentage of the Project cost is paid to the Engineer, the Architect and other consultants involved in the project. Valuation is one such important part of Building Estimation and Costing. Valuation is done after the project is complete on the latest trends of the land prices in the market. Therefore, this course has been designed so that the diploma civil engineer is able to prepare estimate and cost of a civil engineering project.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Explain types of estimate and duties of an Estimator
ii. Undertake rate analysis of civil engineering works
iii. Determine the rates of various items of civil works
iv. Calculate estimated cost of civil construction projects
v. Evaluate the actual value of any property.

Active Learning
i. Estimator
ii. MS Project
