Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering is the largest and one of the earliest Engineering departments. It consists of a group of highly qualified and experienced faculty, supported by experienced technical staff and a good laboratory infrastructure. The department has a total intake of 120 students at BE level and an intake of 18 students in M.Tech- Computer Aided Analysis and Structural Design. The instruction at the undergraduate level aims to provide the students a broad based education with emphasis on theory and practice of Civil Engineering, keeping in view the current and future requirements of the industry.
