Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the engineering branches in the country. Being the oldest Engineering branch in the academic institutions in the world, it has a lot of diversity right from Geotechnical Engineering to Structural Engineering, Environmental to Hydraulics, Transportation to Hydrology, Planning to Construction, etc. A Civil Engineer plays a vital role in national development works like roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, railways, docks and harbor, dams, water works, water supply and sewage systems, etc. which are essential for the rapid growth of any country.
The Civil Engineering Department was established in the year 2009. It has built an excellent reputation not only in academics but also placement. The department has a blend of highly qualified and experienced faculty members having M.Tech/Ph.D. degrees from IIT, NIT, DTU, JMI and other Institutes of National reputes. The Department offers B.Tech-Civil Engg, M.Tech-Civil Engg (with specialization in Structural Engineering/ Construction Management & Transportation Engineering) full time and part time and Ph.D
The Department has fully equipped Labs with state-of-the-art equipment including Applied Mechanics Lab, Structures Lab, Strength of Materials Lab, Soil Mechanics Lab, Environmental Engineering Lab, Concrete Lab, Transportation Engineering Lab, Hydraulics Lab, Fluid Machinery Lab, Surveying Lab, Engineering Geology Lab, Computational Lab, Advanced Structural Engineering Lab, Construction Yard, and Models & Material Museum. In order to keep the students abreast with the technological advances, continuous interaction with reputed companies is being organized at frequent intervals in the form of special technical lecture/ workshop/ site visit or exchange of technical knowledge etc. The Department also encourages its students to engage in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, essential for overall development, nurturing of team spirit and honing organizational skills to keep themselves abreast with current developments in the area of Civil Engineering.
Faculty members of the Civil Engineering Department have 100+ papers published in various national & international journals of repute.
India is going through an intense phase of rapid infrastructure development. This throws up possibilities of absorption of Civil Engineers in a big way. Presently, a huge demand and supply gap exists for Civil Engineers in the market. A good number of students have been placed in reputed companies such as Ashoka Buildcon, Rothenberger, PNB Housing
Finance, Earth Infrastructure Pvt Ltd, GR Infra Projects Ltd, KMC Construction, PNC Infratech Ltd, Sushee Infra Pvt Ltd, TCS, Theme Engineering, Unihorn, Vishwa Infrastructure, SGS-Technomech, Top Surveying, Prathishta Group, Cinda Engineering, Supertech etc. Besides, the department looks forward to tying up with other companies for opening up other windows of opportunities for recruitment of students. Some of the students have also opted for higher studies in both National and International Universities of repute.
