Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering came into the existence in the year 2009 since the inception of the college, Accredited by AICTE New Delhi, Affiliated to SBTET to offer undergraduate program with an annual intake of 60 students. The department is having the following laboratories. Strength of Material Lab Surveying Lab Geotechnical Engineering Lab Engineering Geology Lab Concrete Technology Lab Environmental Engineering Lab civil engineers are global leaders building a better quality of life. The Department of Civil will develop internationally prominent educational and research programs that will benefit all of our constituencies and, in doing so, we will become an international Department of Choice. It is said that the education with sound technical knowledge blended with Character building is essential to create a better society for tomorrow. As Dr. Abdul Kalam says the human society which is in the information based state today is all set to transform in to knowledge based society in the coming generation. Owing to this fact employment alone should not be the target/goal and the very existence of the person in the society demands sound technical knowledge. Inclination towards salaried job, i.e. employment has become a routine mind set among the young generation today and entrepreneurial skills of the young technocrats must be nourished and encouraged.

Provide essential knowledge & skill to the students and enhance their employable potential and entrepreneurial capabilities, produce graduates with high professional and ethical standards, carry out high quality research which is beneficial to the common society. Traditionally Civil Engineering has played an important role in improving the civic life of society by harmonizing the natural resources available on earth. Some of the major areas in the field of Civil Engineering are design and construction of various structures like bridges, buildings, roads, tunnels and dams, developing new construction technologies, Design and development of Foundation systems, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation and Traffic Engineering, Municipal and Sanitary services, surveying, GIS and remote sensing, and Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering. Also, Civil Engineers have found an important role in some newer areas like design and construction of waste containment systems, disposal of high level nuclear wastes, and protection of Ground water resources. In recent years Civil Engineers are facing newer challenges in infrastructure development that is resulting into Development of newer type of foundation Solutions, treatment of natural soils, and development of newer materials. Further, the role of specialized geotechnical engineers is vital and relevant for any structure to stand and stable on a suitably designed foundation system. Transportation engineering deals with the planning, design and construction of roads, railways, airport, dock and harbors, as well as controlling and regulating the traffic flow. Broadly a civil Engineer is expected to do planning, research, design and construction of buildings and roads; traffic and transportation, irrigation and power, water supply and sewage disposal, dam and reservoirs, ports and harbors, airways and navigation, treatment of industrial wastes and abatement of air pollution, noise pollution and disaster mitigation. Besides the basic and engineering Sciences the curriculum in Civil Engineering Covers various professional subjects on structures, foundations, construction, works management and cost, transportation Engineering, irrigation engineering, hydraulics, environmental engineering and earthquake technology etc. The intake at undergraduate level in the Department during the current academic year is 120 in Civil Engineering. He Department offers M. Tech. degree level programmers in Structural Engineering. The sanctioned intake in this area of specialization is 18 students. Civil Engineers have contributed significantly to the manpower development in highly relevant areas of national importance. The department also provides opportunity to working engineers for upgrading their qualification under Continuing Education Programme on part time basis also. The UG curriculum is broad-based and designed to introduce the students with a wide range of problems encountered by civil engineers. Electives, self-study courses, and independently conducted projects are offered in the pre-final year and final year to enable the students to develop additional depth in the areas of special interest to them. Survey camp and practical training which are part of the curriculum, aim to expose the students to actual field problems. Laboratory experiments, computer aided analysis, design and drawing and the tutorial classes are held to build confidence in the students. The Department is well equipped with laboratories related to Structure, Concrete testing, Soil Mechanics, Highway Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Hydraulics laboratories. The department undertakes to organize special lectures and discussion by eminent persons from the field and industry. Keeping in View the requirements of personality Development of the students, the Department has started in —, the Society of Civil & Environmental Engineers (SCEE). The department of Civil Engineering laid greater emphasis on quality research of industrial design and development.
