Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering!
If you are looking for a well-balanced and innovative teaching-learning atmosphere in Civil Engineering, then you are at the right place! The Department of Civil Engineering strives for excellence in teaching and learning and professional development. The department was started in the year 2010 with a sanctioned intake of 60.
The intake has been increased to 120 in the year 2014. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories as per norms which also support students to take up projects of National importance and faculty take up consultancy works. The department aims at imparting quality education and developing analytical and experimental skills in students to apply in various fields of Civil Engineering using BIS codes. The department also provides an opportunity for students in improving supervision, communication and presentation skills, knowledge of software like Auto CAD, STAAD PRO, Arc GIS and Rivet Architecture. The students have to undergo Industrial Training and visit live projects to gain practical knowledge and understanding of field constraints.The Institute has a separate block for Civil and Mechanical departments with spacious classrooms and laboratories. The department has modern teaching aids such as LCD projector, OHP, LCD screen, Laptop, whiteboard in the departments and seminar hall. Students and faculty are using these facilities during seminar, workshops, conferences and guest lectures by experts.
The duration of the course is four years for P.U.C Students and 3 years for Diploma students.
The students undergo this course will study the subjects like Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Engineering Mechanics, Strength of materials, Fluid mechanics and Machinery, , Surveying Structural Analysis and design, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Civil engineering Materials, Environmental Engineering and Water resource Engineering as core subjects and elective subjects like Remote sensing & GIS, Solid waste Management, earthquake engineering, bridge engineering, Rock Mechanics, Air pollution control, etc. The knowledge gained from these subjects will help the students to understand the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.
Students pursuing their civil engineering degree usually learn the theory part in class and relate theory to practice in the laboratory. The students will undergo following laboratory classes to understand theory and practice.
The department is having full-fledged laboratories as per V.T.U norms.
The educational objectives of the Civil Engineering program are designed to produce skilled engineers who are ready to contribute effectively to the Civil Engineering profession and are ready to handle the challenges of the profession. The Civil Engineering department is committed to produce Civil Engineers with following qualities.
The program is targeted at developing the following competencies, skills and abilities amongst students.
The program is targeted at developing the following competencies, skills and abilities amongst students.
The present accreditations by NBA are more outcomes based than output based. A dozen graduate attributes are defined by the NBA, in line with ABET. (Accreditation Board for Engineering & Technology, USA) as expected outcomes from the graduates turned out by the program.
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:
The department has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with following companies.
The Civil Engineering department is striving hard to become a center of excellence in the area of Green Energy and Environment. In this regard, we are doing research work on utilization of waste materials in various areas of Transportation, Geotechnical, Environmental, water resource, Concrete Technology and Structural Engineering. Most of the students projects are done keeping the concept of Green Energy and Environment.
