The civil engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines that deals with the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the structures and systems including roads, railways, airport, bridges, canals, dams, pipelines, treatment plants, residential/commercial/public buildings and industrial buildings. It comprises many areas covered under different subjects: Surveying, Building Planning and Design, Construction Technology, Fluid Mechanics, Hydrology and water resources, Environmental engineering, Highway and transportation, Structural analysis and design, Concrete technology, Geotechnical engineering.
Civil engineering career opportunities are: Site engineers, Project managers, Structural design engineer, Survey and GIS consultant, environment engineer, urban planner, concrete technologist, geotechnical engineer, hydrologist and water resources experts etc. Civil engineering field provide you an opportunity to work in government, public and private sector organizations. After few years of experience, a civil engineer can become entrepreneur with own establishment.
The department of civil engineering is a legacy department conducting B.E. (Civil) programme since 1949. Our mission is to provide centre of excellence in civil engineering education and research. At present, the department is having 110 seats in B.E. (Civil) programme and 45 seats in part time degree programme.
Department started P.G. programme first in the western region in 1956. At present we are conducting M.E. (Civil) programme in Highway and transportation engineering, Environment engineering and hydraulic structures. M.E. (Civil) programme in structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and fracture mechanics are conducted by the department of applied mechanics.
Our students learn the fundamentals of engineering by performing experiments in our well equipped laboratories such as surveying, fluid mechanics, environmental engineering and highway engineering. The core competency is developed by our well designed tutorials and assignments. The department is having well equipped computer labs with internet connectivity. Our classrooms are equipped with projection facilities. Now our whole faculty campus has wifi connectivity.
In civil engineering department, we have highly qualified 26 permanent faculty members. We provide environment for active learning. We have strong linkages with industries for testing, research and providing consulting and environmental audit. The P.G. dissertations are carried out to solve field problems. Field experts are invited for evaluation of students work. These interaction activities help us understanding need of the society. Accordingly we continuously update our curricula. Our civil engineering alumni association is very active has become a partner to our development.
Our students acquire knowledge and skills with excitement. They are sensitized toward society by the programmes like Prerna. They develop technical and soft skills by the events like Paramarsh and Footprint at FTE and other major events held in other institutions. Finally they build the capability here to perform a productive role in the society.
The performance indicators of quality education at UG level in our department are GATE result and campus placement. Every year many of our students clear the GATE exam conducted by IIT for PG study and placement in State owned PSUs. Since last few years, civil engineering department provides highest placement in our faculty. L&T ECC, L&T Power, Alstom, Reliance, Tata Chemicals, Torrent Power, Jain Irrigation, Shapoorji Pallonji are few major recruiters.
