Department of Civil Engineering
About the Department
Department of Civil Engineering started with the beginning of Engineering Discipline in our University in the year 2010. Has put 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.
Civil Engineering Profession is as old as Human Civilization and it continues to play a vital role in the Human Endeavor toward a prosperous life by harmonizing the use of natural resource available on earth. In times to come, Civil Engineers in active collaboration with the professionals of other discipline will be taking up the challenges of providing clean water and air, and the much needed infrastructure requirements of the ever expanding population.
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 materials & construction technologies to catered with ever difficult infrastructure projects, design and development of Foundation systems, Geo-technical Engineering, Transportation and Traffic Engineering, Municipal and Sanitary services, surveying, GIS & remote sensing, and Hydraulics & 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.
- Protection of Groundwater resources.
Further, the role of specialized Geo-technical engineers is vital and relevant for any structure’s stability 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.
