Department of Civil Engineering


Vision

To emerge a global leader in imparting Civil Engineering education and to promote training, research and consultancy in field based knowledge creation with strong emphasis on values.

Mission

To create a flexible undergraduate educational experience in Civil Engineering based on concepts and Fundamentals thereby ensuring a professionally satisfying career for the stake holders.

About the Department

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering. The goal of the Civil engineering curriculum is to create a flexible undergraduate programme. The principle study topics include mechanics of fluids, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportion engineering, environmental engineering, surveying, construction management and Computer Aided Design. Civil Engineering uses basic and applied science to find solutions to challenging problems in this and related fields. It offers exciting opportunities for Civil Engineering in various professional careers, infrastucture, Central and State Governments, Enterpreneurship with very attractive remunerations.

The Department of Civil Engineering was eastablished in 2010 and offers the four year B.Tech Degree program in Civil Engineering. The Department is headed by Dr.C.Vijayaraghavan, a Professional Engineer with two decade of experience in Industry, Academics & Research. It presently has 17 Faculty Members with post graduation in several specializations and varying years of experience in Academics. The major strength of this department is the state of art laboratories and its highly qualified, experienced and committed faculty members. Students undergo excellent training both in theory and practice. To enhance the technical skills of the students, the department also organizes seminars, workshops and guest lectures which would make them globally competitive and successfully launch National and International careers.
