About The Course

Civil Engineering is considered to be the oldest Engineering discipline. It is believed to have commenced after 4000 BC in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia when humans started to abandon the nomadic existence and make permanent settlements . It deals with the design , construction and maintenance of building, bridges , roads, canals , dams etc. The three year diploma course in Civil Engineering offered by our institute is designed to impart theoretical knowledge.Students are sent to various reputed construction companies and Civil Engineering firms during fifth and eighth semesters. The student is thoroughly prepared with the basic knowledge of several sub disciplines of Civil Engineering including Structural Engineering , Environmental Engineering, Geo-Technical Engineering, Water resource Engineering , Material Engineering and Surveying.

Vision & Mission

A collaborative hub where leading civil engineering research serves the needs of a broad array of disciplines and where innovations in other fields are applied to enrich civil engineering research and practice.

Provide knowledge and tools that enable civil engineering to evolve away from empirical ad hoc approaches into strategies based on scientifically grounded analysis, using fundamental mechanics, integrating uncertainty, and navigating the conflicting objectives inherent in successful Civil Engineering design.

    Industrial Training(2 months)

    • The students spend their entire semester (6th) in an industry of relevance for their 2 months industrial training.
    • The student is permitted to join the training only if it is approved by the department.
    • During the course of the training, faculty visits the industry to monitor the performance and conduct of the students working as trainees.
    • Students submit a report on the conduct of training and also give a seminar/presentation in the class.
    • Training awards are based on performance in training, feedback report of the faculty, training manager, training report, mid semester report, daily diary, viva voce conducted by external examiner besides the value addition in students to increase their professional competence.

    Project Work

    • All the final year students are required to undergo a major project in their final academic semester.
    • Both the project works are held under the supervision of senior faculty members.
    • The project may be sponsored or facilitated by the industry.

    Interaction with the Industry

    We believe that engineering education is incomplete without the support and collaboration of the industry. For this purpose, the department has developed strong linkages with the industry and renowned academic institutions. The interfacing with the industry helps the students in the following areas:
    • Industrial visits- wherein the students get an opportunity to see the real application of engineering.
    • Expert lectures- The experts from various fields share their expertise and knowledge with the faculty and the students.
    • Workshops on specific technologies- The students get a hand on experience in these workshops
    • Conferences & Symposiums- The students get an opportunity to explore their research potential
    • Institutional & Industrial Training- Interfacing with the industry opens up multidimensional avenues for the students

    For all the aforesaid purposes, students are actively involved. The students have been identified as student coordinators who are working together in order to meet these objectives. Besides, these activities also inculcates managerial & leadership qualities in the students. The student coordinators are well guided and supported by two faculty members of the department who have been identified as industrial coordinators.

  • Placements

    The department supports and coordinates with the Centralized Training & Placement Cell of CT group for all placement related activities viz. interview preparation, inviting the companies for the placement drives and conduct of the same.
