Undergraduate Program (B.Tech.)
The students are able to demonstrate:
Civil Engineering Department was established in the year 1983, with a vision to create responsible, multi-dimensional and quality engineers to serve the causes of the society. The department has grown since its establishment from a few specific sub-disciplines to its currently diverse manifestation. The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty members with specializations in various sub-disciplines of civil engineering.
The department aims to create quality and industry ready engineers imbued with human values, which are able to address the needs of the industry and society. For lifelong learning through rational and scientific approach, the faculty in the department implement a strategy of problem based learning and project based learning especially focused towards innovation, industry and research.
The department has forged various Memoranda of Understandings(MoU) with industry in order to facilitate the exposure to students, and update the knowledge with respect to the current engineering practices. The students are also given ample freedom to engage in co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Furthermore, the department also allows the faculty members to engage in consultancy and research projects.
I invite you to join the Civil Engineering Department and explore the wide and diverse world of engineering discipline totally dedicated to serve the causes of the society with sustainable development and with qualities of lifelong learning.
The Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Civil Engineering degree program is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and offers Choice Based Credit System education. In addition to core courses, students can opt for discipline specific elective subjects, open elective subjects from different institutes of the University. In addition, this program is uniquely designed to increase the employability and to prepare students to work in a Multi-disciplinary work environment. The program offers Major degree in Civil Engineering and is open to students opting for minor specializations as per their interests.
Civil engineers have significant liability in their jobs, requiring team work as well as independent thinking. To provoke independent thoughts in students and importance of team work, the program also emphasizes on outcome based education, design thinking process and cooperative education components involving projects, seminars, internships, Activity Based Learning and Problem Based Learning. The students are prepared to be adaptable and industry ready having competencies across range of technical and non-technical subjects. They are challenged to learn the skills necessary to excel. These skills include planning, designing, operating, inspecting, and managing. They carry out survey, plan, analyze, design and build structures such as buildings, railways, highways, bridges, waterways, and irrigation structures like dams, canals etc. with sustainable development. After the completion of this program our students will be very well suited to serve in both industrial and service sector.
