Department of Civil Engineering

We impart quality education & training to students for shaping their careers in earthquake resistant structures, modular structures, eco-friendly structures, structures with sustainable energy.




Today, the world is undergoing vast changes in technological revolution, population growth and environmental concerns. All these changes create unique challenges for civil engineers. Civil Engineering demands in depth skills of analysis, design, construction and maintenance of various structures.

We impart quality education & training to students for shaping their careers in earthquake resistant structures, modular structures, eco-friendly structures, structures with sustainable energy. We are in continuous efforts to educate the future engineers who will turn great ideas into real technical solutions for the structural, economical and environmental challenges. The department aims to produce societal engineering encompassing the modern traffic engineering with ultra fast railway signaling with highly available water supply and efficient waste management systems
