Department of Civil Engineering

About The Department

The Department of Civil Engineering came into existence as a part of the Institute since its inception in 1986. It offers UG Degree in Civil Engineering with an intake of 120 students and PG in TWO Disciplines (Structural Engineering, Infrastructure Engineering & Management). The Department is actively involved in Basic, Applied research, consultancy and provides high quality technical advisory support through various R & D projects and consultancy to various organizations. Through academic and sponsored research our faculty and students have published large number of research publications in quality Journals.In the recent past, the Department has attracted significant amount of consultancy funding from government and private agencies and delivered excellent output in terms of implementable solutions.

Civil Engineering profession involves Planning, Analysis, Design, construction and maintenance of different types of structures for government, commercial, Industrial purpose and to the public. These include High-rise office towers /Buildings, Schools, Airports, Highways, Tunnels and Subway systems, Dams, Canal and water Purification, Environmental protection facilities such as Solid waste, hazardous waste, Biomedical waste and waste water treatment systems. Civil Engineers co-ordinate the needs of society, with technical and economic feasibility have a direct impact on the public and the environment through their projects. It is socially associated and helps the people to live a better life. Civil Engineers are creative and yet Practical.The Department disseminates the knowledge gained from its quality research through training programs and interactions with renowned personalities through workshops and conferences.

As per the vision and mission, our aim is to deliver the best to our students, to the society and the nation.
