Programme Intake
B.E 60
M.E Structural Engineering 30
M.E Environmental Engineering 30

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2009 with an intake of 60 students. Also PG Courses M.E Structural Engineering and Environmental Engineering were introduced in the academic year of 2013 – 14 & 2014 – 15 respectively with yearly intake of 18 students. Now the Intake has been increased as 30 from the academic year 2022-23. The Department of Civil Engineering graduates will have a mastery of fundamental knowledge, problem solving skills, Engineering experimental abilities, and design capabilities necessary for entering Civil Engineering career and/or graduate school.

It is aimed to produce graduates who have the knowledge and skills necessary for identifying and assessing design alternatives and the related to social, economic, environmental, and public safety impacts. Civil Engineering includes the Planning, Design, Construction, Maintenance, and operation of large and permanent Engineering projects of our civilization. Civil Engineers are in demand wherever there are people. The major subdivisions of Civil Engineering are Structural, Geotechnical, Environmental, Water resources, and Transportation Engineering.

The Civil Engineer is responsible for major projects such as bridges, large buildings, dams, harbor works, municipal water supply, sanitation facilities, streets, highways, and other transportation facilities. On many projects, Civil Engineers work in close cooperation with Engineers and Scientists from other fields. The Department is organizing various Value added courses like Auto CAD, Revit Architecture, Primavera and Staad Pro  etc.

It gives me immense pleasure to lead the Department of Civil Engineering. The Department was established in the year 2009 to cater the ever increasing demand of Civil Engineers in industry and academia and to serve all concerned to their fullest expectations. M.E Structural Engineering in the Year 2013 and M.E Environmental Engineering in the Year 2014 have been started to make the students to get specialized. The students are groomed to become full fledged professionals with blend of up-to-date technical knowledge and field experience gained during their Internship.

The greatest asset of the Civil Engineering Department is its highly motivated and experienced faculties. The available diversity of expertise of the faculty prepares the students to work in Global Multicultural Environment. To bring synergy in its various activities, the Department is organized to make students familiar in three streams:

Structural Engineering, Construction Engineering and Management, Environmental and Water Resources Engineering.   We continuously strive to make students aware of the latest technological developments by imparting quality education and organizing various departmental activities such as workshops, seminars, Industrial Guest lecture, Hands on training, Webinar, Symposium, Skill Development Programs etc. Industrial visits and Internship provide a complete practical exposure to our students. MOU with reputed Construction firms create wide opportunities for conducting Collaborative technical activities, Internships and lead to provide suitable Placements. Our Practical oriented teaching methodology helps for their holistic development as a Professional Engineer.

Various Emerging fields like Advanced Foundation Techniques, Non Destructive Techniques, GIS and Remote Sensing, Industrial Pollution Control and Audit etc enhance more field opportunities. The framework of the programs provides ample opportunities to the students to train themselves as researcher, thinker, job-seeker, entrepreneur, or innovator based on their passion. Highly successful alumni prove our academic excellence. They are well placed as Senior Project Executive Planners, Specification Consultants, Structural Designers, Quantity Surveyors etc.  Ample opportunities are created to the students to meet the challenges of Construction Industrial Scenario. The value based education drives our students to become more competitive and Quality oriented successful leaders of tomorrow.
