About the department

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 1986.The Vision of the Department is- Building Competent Civil Engineers with a Societal Perspective. We offers UG Degree in Civil Engineering with an intake of 120 students and PG in TWO Disciplines. –

  • Structural Engineering,
  • Infrastructure Engineering & Management with an intake of 18 students in each discipline.                                                                                 

The Faculty is the main Strength of the Department. We have 25 faculty members and eight supporting staff members. The average experience of the faculty in the department is 13 years. The department has eight physical laboratories viz.,

  • Concrete and Highway Engineering
  • Building materials testing Laboratory
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Surveying
  • Geology
  • Fluid Mechanics lab
  • Computer aided design Laboratory.

All laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to suit the needs of academia and industry.

The main aim of the department is to equip the students with the knowledge and expertise them to grow professionally and contribute significantly to the society. While working towards achieving it, the department has established membership with professional bodies, such as

  • Indian Concrete Institute (ICI),
  • Association of Consulting Civil Engineering (ACCE (I)) Bangalore Center,
  • Indian Green Building Council and Construction Industry Development Council

The Department has established a good relationship with core Civil Engineering Industries. Department is coordinating with more than 25 companies which are offering internship and placement opportunities to the students. The department is maintaining good rapport with surrounding industries and governmental agencies to support the students in carrying their summer internship for one month duration. The students are prepared with multi-dimensional skill sets covering all the required graduate attributes. More focus is given on practical learning, projects, and research. The department is arranging guest lecturers from industry personnel, industrial visits and tours every year to fill the gap between academia and industry. . The department is also conducting workshops and conferences at regular intervals in the latest and innovative areas of civil engineering. Students are encouraged to participate in Inter Institute events, Certification Courses – NPTEL, Coursers. The department has ACCE, ICI and IGBC Student chapters and many events are being organized in association with these chapters.

The Department is well known because of our multi-talented alumni. Several former UG and PG students of this department are in various topmost prestigious positions globally in different sectors like academia, research organization, industry, government bureaucrats etc. The Department disseminates the knowledge gained from its quality research through training programs and interactions with renowned personalities through

  • Webinars,
  • Student Mentoring Programs,
  • Faculty Development Programs,
  • Conferences,
  • Seminars and Workshops.

The department is also involved in providing consultancy services in the areas of

  • Structural designs,
  • Third party inspections
  • Proof checking of structural designs
  • Soil Testing and
  • Testing of Building materials for quality.


As a result of Active participation of the Department as explained above

  • Many students got placements in civil engineering core companies and IT companies.
  • Some of the students are pursuing their post-graduation in reputed institutions in India and abroad from each batch of every academic year.
  • Through academic and sponsored research, our faculty members and students have published a large number of International Research Publications in peer-reviewed reputed Journals having high impact factors in the domain.
  • In the recent past, the Department has attracted a significant amount of consultancy funding from government and private organizations and delivered excellent output in terms of implementable solutions for the benefit of the country and society at large.
  • “Innerve” the technical club in the department formed in the year 2013 with sole objective of harnessing the creative abilities of civil engineering students in the college so that they become more confident engineers in future to serve the nation and to bring name and fame to their Alma meter.

 The accomplishments of the Department are highlighted as follows:

  • The department imparts an Outcome Based Education [OBE] and modifies the training module once in three years/ as per the demand from industry requirements.
  • Internship/Visits to Industry/Research Centre/Hands-on practices are mandatory requirement of the curriculum.
  • Signed MoUs with reputed industries and Research Institutes for Internship, industry based live project works and technical trainings.
  • MOOC/NPTEL Courses are a made mandatory for staff and students.
  • Enriched Skill Based training programs to enhance the employability skills.
  • Excellent training to students by academicians and industrialists
  • Excellent faculty team with enriched experience in academic and industry.
  • Associated with Professional Bodies Like IEI,ISTE,ICI,ACCE,IGBC and CIDC etc.,
