- About Department
Civil Engineering is the oldest branch of engineering. Earlier it dealt with shelter but over the centuries also developed to provide services such as road, water supply, bridges, dams, structure for entertainment, and so on.
In-fact measure of civilization largely dependent upon the proficiency and skill they developed in civil engineering. Civilizations are remembered for the monumental structures they built such as Pyramid, Temple, Stupa, Pagoda, which required good knowledge of civil engineering. Tajmahal is a shining example of this.A good civil engineer should have a theoretical base with a good practical knowledge so that he can use this information for the benefit of project, heÂ is working for. Civil Engineering virtually touches all facets of our life. Over the years, many specializations have developed which are catering to the special needs of the projects such as geotechnical engineering , public health engineering., hydraulics, structure, highway engineering, bridge engineering, earthquake engineering, construction planning & management, environmental engineering, Irrigation engineering , just to cite a few. As complexities involved in the projects are growing so narrower fields of specialization are developing. Lot of softwares are being used for analysis,design and drafting of civil engineering structures. The country is undergoing massive expansion of infra-structure , creating thousands of job opportunity for civil engineers.
Realizing the growing need for civil engineers, civil engineering department was established two years ago. The department is having well qualified and experienced faculty for teaching diverse subjects of civil engineering. Department will award BE (Civil) to the aspiring students. The yearly intake is 180. We have well- equipped labs such as Basic Civil Engineering & Engineering Mechanics Lab, Construction material testing lab, Surveying Lab, Fluid Mechanics Lab, Strength of material lab, Engineering Geology Lab just to cite a few.
A warm and affectionate welcome from the department of Civil engineering, Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings.
Our department has a team of qualified and experienced faculty and staff members and we are working hard continuously to improve upon the quality of education and to maintain its position of leadership in engineering and technology.
In-fact measure of civilization largely dependent upon the proficiency and skill developed in civil engineering. Our department has been conducting events since its beginning to keep the faculty and students aware of the latest developments in the field of Civil engineering.I am certain that our students will prove to be an invaluable asset to an organization.

Prospects Of Civil Engineering Department
Civil engineers design & supervise infrastructure like roads, highways, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, pipelines & sewage systems. Civil engineering is one of the oldest types of engineering and involves modalities like design, construction, research and training. Specialties within civil engineering are vast, some of which are structural, environment, and transportation related.
Several factors that civil engineers must consider in their designs include costs, maintenance, and making sure the structure will stay intact during harsh climate. They must also take the local environment into account, anticipating natural disasters such as earthquakes as well as the stress of daily wear & tear. In short, citizens of a country rely on civil engineers to make secure structures for more efficient living. Therefore, their work is carried out according to proper specifications and safety standards.
A bachelor’s degree in engineering is needed for all engineering jobs at an entry level. College graduates with a degree in a science or mathematics may get some jobs. Some countries require civil engineers to be licensed in order to be able to offer services directly to the public. Obtaining a license requires 4 years of relevant work experience and passing of an examination to receive professional engineer certification. Beginning engineers.
