About the Department

 The Department of Civil Engineering puts in its best efforts to create outstanding engineers – with advanced teaching techniques and learning aids for students and state of the art research facilities for our students. Students are not only made experts in technical aspects but also in interpersonal skills, a vital ingredient to excel in the fast-paced world.

Traditionally Civil Engineering has played an important role in improving the civic life of society by harmonizing the natural resources available on earth. Some of the major areas in the field of Civil Engineering are design and construction of various structures like bridges, buildings, roads, tunnels and dams, developing new construction technologies, Design and development of Foundation systems, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation and Traffic Engineering, Municipal and Sanitary services, surveying, GIS and remote sensing, and Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering.

Also, Civil Engineers have found an important role in some newer areas like

  • Design And Construction Of Waste Containment Systems,
  •  Disposal Of High Level Nuclear Wastes, And
  •  Protection of Ground water resources.

In recent years Civil Engineers are facing newer challenges in infrastructure development that is resulting into

  • Development of newer type of foundation Solutions,
  •  Treatment of natural soils, and
  •  Development of newer materials.

 

Further, the role of specialized geotechnical engineers is vital and relevant for any structure to stand and stable on a suitably designed foundation system.

Transportation engineering deals with the planning, design and construction of roads, railways, airport, dock and harbors, as well as controlling and regulating the traffic flow.

Broadly a civil Engineer is expected to do planning, research, design and construction of buildings and roads; traffic and transportation, irrigation and power, water supply and sewage disposal, dam and reservoirs, ports and harbors, airways and navigation, treatment of industrial wastes and abatement of air pollution, noise pollution and disaster mitigation.
