Civil Engineering Department

Future Prospects

Welcome to the department of civil engineering, here we offer you a world class knowledge base of civil engineering concerned with construction of buildings, towers, bridges, etc….wherever it may be above the surface or below the surface of the earth. Here we always have a “down to earth”, approach.

As a civil engineer you are always working on materials, the role you play will involve:  conception, design, build, and supervise, operate, construct, including roads, systems for water supply and sewage treatment, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in the public and private sector. Many civil engineers work in planning, design, construction, research, and education.

  • Analyze long range plans, survey reports, maps, and other data to plan and design projects
  • Consider construction costs, government regulations, potential environmental hazards, and other factors during the planning and risk-analysis stages of a project
  • Compile and submit permit applications to local, state, and federal agencies, verifying that projects comply with various regulations
  • Oversee and analyze the results of soil testing to determine the adequacy and strength of foundations
  • Analyze the results of tests on building materials, such as concrete, wood, asphalt, or steel, for use in particular projects
  • Prepare cost estimates for materials, equipment, or labor to determine a project’s economic feasibility
  • Use design software to plan and design transportation systems, hydraulic systems, and structures in line with industry and government standards
  • Perform or oversee surveying operations to establish building locations, site layouts, reference points, grades, and elevations to guide construction
  • Manage the repair, maintenance, and replacement of public and private infrastructure.

Our Vision

  • Our vision is to provide utmost knowledge to the students in Civil Engineering, that emphasizes on innovations.

Our Mission
