Department of Civil Engineering
About the department
Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil Engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
A Civil Engineering degree prepares a professional to work in various engineering areas, from construction to communications, infrastructure etc. Civil Engineers are involved in the design, development and construction of a huge range of projects in the built and natural environment. Their role is central to ensuring the safe, timely and well-resourced completion of projects in many areas, including highway construction, waste management, coastal development and geotechnical engineering. Consulting Civil Engineers liaise with clients to plan, manage, design and supervise the construction of projects. As contracting Civil Engineers, they turn the plans of consulting Civil Engineers (designers) into reality. They oversee the actual construction on the ground and work in conjunction with consulting engineers.
Civil Engineering graduates are also valued in commercial and corporate sectors such as finance, banking and accountancy. A Civil Engineering degree would be of great value in operational management, supply chain management, procurement, intellectual property, logistics and after-sales management also.
The Civil Engineering Department of the Institute was started in the year of 2009 offering Under Graduate course in Civil Engineering with an intake capacity of 60 students, which has now been increased to 120. An M. Tech. program in Structural Engineering is also being offered with a sanctioned intake of 18. The department has well qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members and lab technicians. The Department has state-of-the-art laboratories and modern infrastructure.
