Relevance Of Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is the oldest branch of engineering which is growing right from the Stone Age civilization. American Society of Civil Engineering defines Civil Engineering as the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and physical sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize economically the materials and forces of nature for the progressive well-being of man.Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, geophysics, geodesy, structural engineering, transportation engineering, earth science, atmospheric sciences, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies. Civil engineers typically possess an academic degree with a major in civil engineering. The length of study for such a degree is usually three to five years and the completed degree is usually designated as a Bachelor of Engineering, though some universities designate the degree as a Bachelor of Science. The degree generally includes units covering physics, mathematics, project management, design and specific topics in civil engineering. Initially such topics cover most, if not all, of the sub-disciplines of civil engineering. Students then choose to specialize in one or more sub-disciplines towards the end of the degree. While an Undergraduate Degree will normally provide successful students with industry accredited qualification, some universities offer postgraduate engineering awards which allow students to further specialize in their particular area of interest within engineering.

A civil engineer has to conceive, plan, estimate, get approval, create and maintain all CivilEngineering infrastructure activities. He has to carry out research and training programmes toimprove the technology. Civil engineer has a very important role in the development of thefollowing infrastructures:

  • Town and city planning
  • Build suitable structures for the rural and urban areas for various utilities.
  • Build tanks, dams to exploit water resources.
  • Purify the water and supply water to needy areas like houses, schools, offices, and agriculture field.
  • Provide good drainage system and purification plants.
  • Provide and maintain communication systems like roads, railways, harbours andairports.
  • Monitor land, water and air pollution and take measures to control them.

Departmental Activities

  • Department organizes industrial visits in every semester to make the students to get exposed to the practical knowledge.
  • The department conducts conferences, workshops and software training programs for both students and faculty.
  • Guest lectures are being arranged in the department by inviting industry experts.
  • Department encourages the students to participate in sports, blood donation camp and cultural and social service activities.
  • Student's Project exhibition is being arranged every year to commemorate the birthday of Sir. M.Visvesvaraya.
  • The department has its own association entitled " KARTRU – Civil Engineering forum"
  • Department conducts entrepreneurship awareness pregame for final year students every year.
  • Department conducts pre placement training activities for all the students every semester.
