About Us

I, Thejas C M, working as Assistant Professor in R V Institute of Technology and Management. I have 9 years of teaching experience and 2 years of industrial experience. My areas of interest are Construction management and Concrete Technology. Construction management is overall management of any construction process with respect to time, quality and cost. Concrete technology deals with study of concrete, its properties and application of concrete in construction. I am pursuing PhD in concrete technology; my topic for research work is effects of addition of nano particles in self compacting concrete.
