About the Department

A well-qualified and dedicated team of staff members provides the necessary strength to the department. The centre is equipped with most modern equipment catering to the requirement of research in water management. Centre for Water and Environmental Studies (CWES) was established in the Department as an extension of this activity. Structural Technology Centre (STC) is an advanced laboratory established in the department in the year 2003 to carry out R&D and Consultancy works in structural design and testing.


Department of Civil Engineering is striving to become as a world class Academic Centre for quality education and research in diverse areas of Civil Engineering, with a strong social commitment



  • Producing highly competent and technologically capable professionals and motivated young academicians
  • Providing quality education in undergraduate and postgraduate levels, with the strong emphasis on professional ethics and social commitment.
  • Developing a scholastic environment for the state – of – art research, resulting in practical applications.
  • Undertaking professional consultancy services in diverse areas of Civil Engineering.



Engineering Graduates will be able to:

  • Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  • Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

From the HOD’s Desk


Civil engineers build our quality of life which is one of the world’s most important jobs. Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline and core branch that deals with the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as buildings, bridges, roads, dams, canals etc. Most civil engineering today deals with power plants,  railways, structures, water supply, irrigation, the natural environment, sewer, flood control, transportation and traffic. In essence, civil engineering may be regarded as the profession that makes the world a more agreeable place in which to live.

The excellent infrastructure, teaching faculty of the best kind ensuring quality education such as interaction among students, parents and staff, along with a Training and Placement Cell ensures a bright future to its students. Thus we are confident that our Engineers will emerge as assets not only to this institution and to the organization they belong, but also to the country at large. I congratulate the team of faculty members and the students for their brilliant and original efforts.  I wish all the Students and Faculty a great academic career.
