Civil Engineering (CE)
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 bridges, roads, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. 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.
The Department has well qualified faculty members mostly with postgraduate degree from the reputed institutions. Many of the faculty members have rich and varied industrial experience making an apt blend of theoretical and practical knowledge. Field visits to existing projects and construction sites are organized for exposure and better appreciation of complexities and problems that are involved in Project Development and management so that the students becomes not only a graduate engineer but a competent professional armed with modern techniques, tools and technology to face the challenges and tackle real life problems. Focused attention is made to lay the foundation for the pursuit of higher learning, research and development activities in the diverse fields of Civil Engineering enabling those who seek career in these areas.
