The State of Amazonas, Brazil, presents a historic issue related to road pavements due to the great percentage of clayey soil in subgrades. Because of that, researchers have been searching for alternative solutions aiming the rational use of finite resources and the development of new technologies. In this study, the effects of glass waste and "rock dust" were investigated, both pulverized in high energy mill for stabilization of a typical clayey soil. Accordingly, UCS and tensile strength by diametral compression were conducted on soil specimens together with the addition of 10% and 50% of glass and rock. The results showed that 10% of glass content increased up to 21% on UCS compared to soil "in natura". Furthermore, by adding "rock dust" waste, the strength also improved up to 60% on UCS and 8% on TS. In particular, the mechanical parameters indicated 10% of content, on either glass or rock waste, to be the effective amount on stabilization of clayey soil.

In current scenario there is strong requirement to develop Entrepreneurial mindset in engineering student. A simple method to analyses the level of existing competence among the students is to conduct Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test of the students. DMIT test can help to get insight of the inmate characteristics of students to start Enterprise as career option. Along with DMIT Psychometric test based on questionnaire is also conducted to analyses their mindset depending upon their preconditioning and belief system. In the present work a sample of 90 students were taken and DMIT and Psychometric test was conducted on them. After the test an Entrepreneurship training program was conducted for these students. To validate the results again DMIT test and Psychometric test was conducted for these students. Test results of DMIT and psychometric analysis were carefully recorded and analyzed.
