About the Department
Civil Engineering is one of the most traditional Engineering studies in India. Civil Engineering discipline was started in the academic year 2009. The profession deals with planning, designing, supervising, constructing and maintaining activities of public works like roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, dams, water works, sewage system, ports etc. and offers a multitude of challenging career opportunities.
The courses cover basic sciences, Mathematics, Engineering graphics, computing techniques along with the fundamental Engineering principles of construction materials. Building Drawing and Laboratory classes in testing of materials help to understand Civil Engineering in a practical way. Students will also cover the fundamental principles to study the behavior of solids, Fluids and Soils. Surveying and Environmental Engineering.
Site visits are arranged to give the students practical idea along with laboratory classes in Surveying, Hydraulics and Soil Engineering. Analysis and design of steel and concrete structures and Foundation Engineering are focused. The students can opt for a special elective subject prescribed in the curriculum.
A survey camp is arranged for the benefit of the students. Practical classes in Computer Aided Structural Analysis and Environmental Engineering are other features.
