Civil Engineering
Infrastructure is a key national requirement and thus, civil engineering is a core branch. There is a consistent need for people who are well-versed in it. Established in the year 1981, the Civil Engineering Department started by offering a degree course in Civil Engineering, to fill that requirement. In 1986, postgraduate programmes in the areas of Geotechnical Engineering and Structural Engineering were introduced.
The Department - At a Glance
Consists of 13 full-time faculty members
Has its own dedicated building and infrastructure
Existing facilities include computer centre and independent testing laboratories in the areas of Geo-technical, Structural, Environmental, Transportation and Concrete Technology
The Environmental Audit Cell and the Structural Design Centre of the department also play a pivotal role in industry-institute interactions
Continuing education programmes in association with government and non-government organisations are also regularly planned
The Civil Engineering Department also carries out consultancy services and third party audits in the following areas:
  • Structural Engineering
    FEM modelling and Analysis, Soil-Structure Interaction, Design of Industrial Structures, Machine Foundations, Multi-story Buildings etc.
  • Geotechnical Engineering
    Subsurface Investigations including Soil Bearing Capacity, Field and Laboratory Soil Testing, Analysis and Design of Foundations (Machine Foundations, Raft, Pile / Pile Groups) etc.
  • Construction Engineering
    Concrete Mix Design, Concrete and Highway Material Testing (Destructive and Non-destructive), Quality Audits etc.
  • Environmental Engineering Including Water Supply & Sanitation Engineering: Water and Waste Water Analysis, Air Pollution monitoring, Environmental Auditing etc.
The civil engineering department is well equipped with different laboratories.
