Welcome to Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is a Professional Engineering discipline and it is the Mother branch of Engineering that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings.It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Materials Engineering, Coastal Engineering, Surveying, and Construction Engineering.

The principle educational objective of our department is to provide the students with fundamental and high tech knowledge and the skills needed to resolve the problems related to construction and maintenance of infrastructure in harmony with the society and environment.


To build young Technocrats by imparting their technical knowledge in the field of Civil Engineering, by laying the foundation for future engineers, who can meet the demands of industry and community effectively in all part of civil works and to make significant contribution in the economic development of the state, region and nation.

M1: To adopt valuable teaching methods and implement high quality education to maximize Engineering knowledge for students.
M2: To promote innovative and original thoughts in the minds of civil engineers.
M3: To provide facilities to the students and faculty members to enhance the understanding and implementation of recent trends in the Civil Engineering field.
M4:To produce Civil Engineering graduates with good ethical skills and managerial skills to become as successful professionals and entrepreneurs.
M5:To promote advanced technology, Industry Institute interaction, research and consultancy in Civil Engineering department with global linkages.

PEO 1: To educate the graduates with the basic and advanced knowledge in civil engineering and to apply the fundamentals of mathematics, science, management and computing in engineering principles.
PEO 2: To motivate themselves in getting engineering position and practice with structural design, construction industries in private and government sectors at the national and international levels.
PEO 3: To succeed and prepare the civil engineering graduates in lifelong independent learning and work effectively on team based projects to become good entrepreneurs and conduct themselves ethically, socially in their professional environment.
PEO 4: Graduates will be made aware of causes of impacts due to the development and also to identify remedial measures if necessary.
PEO 5: To prepare students to become successful design engineers, R&D scientists. Civil Engineering Graduates will exhibit interest in leading to professional licensure or higher studies in engineering that provides for continued development of their technical ability and management skills.
