Civil Engineering

B.Tech in Civil Engineering

one of the getting on and wide-ranging engineering disciplines, Civil Engineering involves planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and supervising infrastructures which include facilities essential to modern life like highways, bridges and tunnels, schools, hospitals, airports and other buildings, sewage systems and water treatment facilities. Subsequently, the course also involves protecting the public and environmental health as well as improving existing infrastructure.

Civil Engineers generally have a lot of specialisations to choose from like:

Construction Engineering Coastal and Ocean Engineering
Geotechnical Engineering Fire protection engineering
Structural Engineering General Engineering
Bridge Engineering Irrigation Engineering
Land development Materials Engineering
Transportation engineering Urban Engineering
Hydraulic Engineering Water resources Engineering
Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering is one of the oldest Departments. Over the years, the Department has grown many times in different spheres of activities. At present, the Department offers an undergraduate programme in Civil Engineering leading to the B.Tech degree in Civil Engineering.

The department has well qualified and experienced faculty members.
Apart from teaching and research, all faculties are actively involved in training and other extracurricular activities for all round development of the Department. Faculties of this department are also undertaking design, testing & consultancy works for various organizations leading to resource generation for the Institute.

The course curriculum is up-to-date, spanning disciplines that cover both traditional concepts and recent developments. A strong foundation is laid through courses on Concrete and Steel Structures, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Irrigation Engineering and Computer Application. Beside, students are offered a variety of electives like Hydrology and Dam, Traffic Engineering, Pre stressed concrete, Rock Mechanics, Advanced Environmental Engineering .

The theoretical courses are supplemented by imparting practical experience through well-equipped laboratories.

Program Overview

A degree in civil engineering covers scientific topics; mechanics, hydraulics, materials science and statistical analysis. These foundation subjects will be complemented with the development of design skills, computer-aided design in particular. The final years of any degree will involve the conception of several personal or team projects

Course Offered

B.Tech. Civil Engineering Regular 4 years
