The Department of Civil Engineering has been established with an objective to produce high quality technical manpower needed by industry, R&D organizations, and academic institutions. The Department offers B.Tech degree in Civil Engineering. The academic activities of the Department emphasize deep understanding of fundamental principles, development of creative ability to handle the challenges of Civil Engineering.
The Department encourages its students to engage in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, essential for development, nurturing of team spirit, and developing organizational skills.
The laboratories are well equipped for conducting teaching, research and consultancy activities in the area of structures, foundation, construction, hydraulics, water resources and environmental engineering, works management and cost, transportation engineering, irrigation engineering etc.
Recognizing the rapid, extensive and emerging developments in Civil Engineering, the B.Tech programme includes Computer Aided Analysis and Design and Remote Sensing besides an integrated and systematic foundation in Physical and Engineering Sciences like solid, fluid and soil mechanics, Materials, Graphics and Surveying. The sequential provision of subjects develops the engineering methodology and practice as applied to planning, design and construction of buildings, bridges, hydraulic structures, environmental systems, transportation systems and others.
