B.E. Civil Engineering


About the Department

Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the professional engineering disciplines and deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Because Civil Engineering is a wide ranging profession, including several separate specialized sub-disciplines, its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields. Civil Engineering is considered as a single largest branch among all the engineering branches.

The most important task of Civil Engineering is designing and planning of various structures. As the technological revolution expands, as the world’s population increases and as environmental concerns mount, Civil Engineering skills will be needed throughout the world. Whatever area we choose, be it design, construction, research, planning, and management, Civil Engineering offers a very wide range of career choices for its professionals.

The department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2009 with an intake of 60 students. Since 2013, the intake has been increased to 120 students. It offers a four year B.E. degree course in Civil Engineering. Since its inception, the department maintains a team of dedicated and multifaceted faculty members, who are constantly pushing the frontiers of knowledge and quality education to ensure a futuristic approach that keeps pace with the changing trends in the professional world through our global perspective. The department also continues to maintain and cultivate its strong links with the infrastructural industry and academic and research institutions.

The department is well equipped with the state-of-the-art laboratories and excellent infrastructure to meet the required university standards and is managed by well experienced and dedicated staff members.

The following are the different laboratories of the department:

  1. Strength of Materials Laboratory
  2. Fluid Mechanics and Machinery Laboratory
  3. Survey Laboratory
  4. Soil Mechanics Laboratory
  5. Concrete and Highway Laboratory
  6. Environmental Engineering Laboratory and
  7. Computer Aided Design and Drafting Laboratory

The department is also very active in conducting various conferences, workshops, short-term seminars, faculty development programmes, etc. and has been constantly involved in various consultancy projects.
