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 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, Stupas, 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 he is working for.Civil Engineering virtually touches all facets of our life. Over the years, many specializations have developed 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 so are narrower fields of specialization are developing. Lot of software’s are being used for analysis and design and drafting of civil engineering structures. The country is undergoing through massive expansion of infra-structure in the country, creating thousands of job opportunity for civil engineers.
Realizing the growing need for civil engineers, civil engineering department was established in year 2012. 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 120. 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.

“The aims of education is complete fulfillment of man with the richness of his personality including the aesthetic and spiritual aspect to become a contributing member of the society. Education’s essential role, giving people the freedom of thought, judgement, feeling and imagination, they need in order to develop their talents and remain in control of their own life”.
I would like to place on record the services and contribution given by the dedicated faculty and staff members of the Civil Engineering Department in performing the students as the person of competence, conscience, compassion and commitment.
I also appreciate the excellent performance of students of Civil Engineering in every field. The good atmosphere which is maintained by the students in the college and department campus helps them to excel in academics and also in human values that they form them to be person for others.
The annual Technical festival of our department, MEGASTRUCTURE, has proved to be a great platform for upcoming civil engineers. In this regard the word of great scientist Albert Einstein is memorable when he said “I don’t teach my children, I create conditions for them to learn”.
