Civil Engineering is one of those branches of knowledge which properly take their places both amongst the sciences and the arts; for a science consists of a collection of general principles or truths relating to any particular subject, while an art are the application of those principles to practice, for the purpose of affecting some particular object. Civil Engineering can be considered as a single largest branch among all the engineering branches. In general, it is the branch of engineering which deals with the planning, design, construction and maintenance of the structures like buildings, roads, bridges, canals, dams, water supply and treatment systems etc. It has a broader spectrum and comprises of many sub-disciplines under it. The branches of civil engineering are structural engg, construction engg, geotechnical engg, urban / town / municipal engg, environmental engg, transportation engg, surveying, water resource engg, tunnel engg, earthquake engg, material engg and coastal engg.

The vision of our Civil Department is to give an exposure to budding civil technocrats to various challenges in the profession. The Department has laboratories equipped with the most modern equipments and test facilities. The main areas of Civil Engineering include Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Hydraulics Engineering, Hydrology, GIS and GPS Systems, Design of Structures, Environmental Engineering, Solid Mechanics and Transportation 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.


To impart quality education to civil engineering graduates by keeping pace with rapidly changing technologies and to create professionals through teaching-learning and research with capabilities of accepting global challenges who shall maintain integrity to serve society keeping respect for the environment.


To produce competent and quality conscious civil engineers with civic sense to strive for sustainable solutions and endeavor future engineers for excellence in all aspects to meet global standards and educating them for innovative thinking with relevance to professional career and entrepreneurship with industrial and social interface.
