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.

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.
