Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles for solving the problems of society and improving human life. Being an extensive profession, Civil Engineering includes several specialized sub-disciplines. Its history is linked to the knowledge of structures, material science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields. Owing to the tremendous growth in the infrastructure sector in India and abroad, the demand of Civil Engineers has been on the rise. To fulfil the growing demands and to cater to the engineering needs of the nation, the institute offers B. Tech degree course in Civil Engineering, a four year engineering degree program. Civil Engineering is the undergraduate program focused on rigorous analytical study along with realistic practical solutions. The department has strong presence of qualified faculty with IIT and NIT background and well equipped laboratories. The major focus is on education for application of IT and latest software in design and execution of small to large and complex nature of civil engineering projects along with the gain from practical experience from the field studies of different structures. Building, Industries (real estates), Bridges, Highways, Flyovers, Dams and Irrigation Structures are top priorities of the academic program.
