The Department strives to :
- Produce well-qualified civil engineers, who will effectively use their knowledge and research for nation building.
- Impart professional competence that is forward looking, such that they are able to address issues like decaying urban infrastructure, deal effectively with the effects of climatic changes and natural disasters.
- Create out-of-the-box thinkers who can create new materials and means and become facilitators of tomorrow’s growth areas.
Civil engineering is one of the most traditional engineering studies in India. British started very good schools for civil engineering studies and successfully completed some of the best public projects like Ganga canal and India’s Railway network to name a few.
In the first year of study students will learn about the basic engineering techniques along with mathematics and engineering design. From second year students will be more focused towards core subject studies. Few of the subjects taught in these four years are Fluid Mechanics, Soil Mechanics, Design of Structures, and Structural Mechanics and water recourse engineering. Students are also partly exposed to subjects like Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Remote Sensing, Transportation Systems Engineering etc.
A bachelor degree in civil engineering will give good opportunities in industry as India is moving fast forward for infrastructure development and one the same time leave a good space for higher studies at home and abroad.
Currently the following labs have been established:
- Surveying Lab
- Fluid Mechanics Lab
- Engg Geology Lab
- Concrete Lab
- Soil Mechanics Lab
- Environmental Lab
- Transportation Lab
- Structural Lab
