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.
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. The country is undergoing through massive expansion of infra-structure creating thousands of job opportunities for civil engineers. Realizing the growing need for civil engineers, this department at TIT, Bhopal was established in the year 2012.
