Department Of Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering has grown over the years into one of the finest centers of training in the field of civil engineering.

The department is currently running undergraduate courses, postgraduate programme as well as research activities. Civil engineering focuses on the infrastructure of the world which includes Water works, Sewers, Dams, Power Plants, Transmission Towers/Lines, Railroads, Highways, Bridges, Tunnels, Irrigation Canals, River Navigation, Shipping Canals, Traffic Control, Mass Transit, Airport Runways, Terminals, Industrial Plant Buildings, Skyscrapers, etc.

For employment opportunities exist in the public & private sectors in large numbers in all branches of design, construction, & maintenance, enjoying a smooth drive, being happy with a well planned market place, you must take a moment to thank a civil engineer for the roads you travel and the market place you are in. But, these aren't the only contributions civil Engineers have made to life in the 21st century: They are also credited with synchronizing traffic lights, designing homes, building bridges, erecting industrial facilities and constructing recycling plants.

HOD Message
Requirements of a Civil Engineer

Today’s civil engineer should possess in depth Civil Engineering skills for analysis, design, construction and maintenance of various structures, computer, managerial and communication skills for better management of various structures. He should be also trained to understand and solve real world problems in Civil Engineering.

Employability options for Civil Engineering students

There are many career paths for civil engineers. Civil engineers can work in Government departments (ranging from municipality, corporation, state and central governments and defence), public sector undertakings like SAIL, GAIL, NTPC, NHPC, BHEL etc. and various private sector organizations (contracting and consulting firms). Initially, the nature of job may be construction supervision, design, marketing or production. As they gain more experience, they manage projects. Today, the world is undergoing vast changes-the technological revolution, population growth, environmental concerns, and more. All create unique challenges for civil engineers. The next decades will be the most creative, demanding, and rewarding times for civil engineers and now is the best time to find out if Civil Engineering.

Wish You Good Luck and All the Best!
