Civil Engineering

Department of B.E. (Civil)

About the Department

The Department of Civil Engineering has been established in the College in the year 2011. Since inception, the Department of Civil Engineering has been imparting knowledge in ‘General Engineering Concepts’ and ‘Studies’ in ‘Civil Engineering’. With the concurrent acquisition of technical skills in labs, inspiration and awakening of the young minds by vibrant teachers, the students are engaged intellectually, in the college.  These critical contributions lead the students to explore and discover the wonders of their minds, which in turn synergize together and enable the students, transform themselves to become true engineers and technologists. Irrespective of their branch of study for specialization, students are guided in the first year to explore new ideas through original thinking and discover new layers of knowledge and abilities, in Mathematics, Sciences and in Engineering and Technology. With character, dedication, brilliance, effectiveness and enthusiasm, they become capable and also analytical in their approach and transform themselves as Engineering Professionals of the future, with ethics.

The following are the different laboratories of the department:

  • Strength of Materials Laboratory
  • Fluid Mechanics and Machinery Laboratory
  • Survey Laboratory
  • Soil Mechanics Laboratory
  • Concrete and Highway Laboratory
  • Environmental Engineering Laboratory and
  • Computer Aided Design and Drafting Laboratory


The mission of department of civil engineering is to prepare graduates with professional and ethical responsibilities in relation to public and private organisations; to produce graduates who are well grounded in scientific and technical knowledge with excellent communication skills; and to prepare them for a career path towards leadership in industry, government and academics.
