The department came into its being in 2004. Today, the department has reached to an excellence by way of contributing to outstanding academics, a rich legacy of alumni and facilitating the basic needs of our society through research initiatives. We believe that excellence flourishes in an environment that embraces the broadest range of people, high quality that helps them to achieve their full potential. We offer the best and well-equipped labs for experimentation and research works. Specialization offered at masters’ level has global exposure in terms of employability.
Our faculty has fundamental competencies to teach in all of their specialized fields along with the support of our dedicated technical staff members. Hand-on projects, field trips and industry-academic interaction together make our students highly sought after graduates by the employers at the end of the course. The department ensures not only that the courses are updated, but also that they reflect the current needs of industry and the society as a whole.
With all the faculties and conducive research, environment we ensure that graduates are educated in the broadest sense of the term, with the ability to think clearly, judge objectively, and contribute constructively to society.
Civil Engineering is considered as one of the oldest branches of engineering. Each civil engineering project comes with its own set of challenges which require meticulous planning, creativity, adaptability and problem solving skills to develop infrastructure. Civil engineers will always remain in demand as development of infrastructure i.e. construction of buildings, skyscrapers, roads, highways, dams, bridges, water treatment plants, sewage treatment plants etc. to name a few, rely on their expertise and talent. Civil engineering can offer some of the most lucrative jobs in the technology sector. Another advantage is that civil engineers can also apply for IT jobs after learning how to operate certain civil engineering software.
Civil Engineering Career in Government Sector
Working in the government sector not just comes with stability and good salary but also with the factor of job security. Indian Engineering Services is one of the sought after field as it provides almost equal benefits as offered to IAS officers and Civil Servants.
Civil Engineering Career in Private Sector
In private sector, jobs for civil engineers are offered in construction and design. A civil engineer with a good knowledge of CAD Software, Finite Element Analysis, and along with other skill-set fits perfectly in an organization.
