About Department


The department of Civil Engineering was established in 1946 offering B. Tech. course with an intake of 30 students, which was enhanced to 60 in the year 2010. The M. Tech. Structural Engineering course was started in the year 1971 with an intake of 10 students, which was enhanced to 25 in the year 2001, M. Tech. Computer Aided Structural Engineering was started in the year 2001 with an intake of 25 students. The research facilities in the department are sufficient for doing MS and PhD programs
The students are provided good computing and internet facilities. The department has well equipped laboratories, including Automatic compression Testing Machine, 3000 KN capacity with stress & strain controlled, Analogue Hydrostatic Pressure testing equipment and High arm Electrically operated digital compression testing machine of 3000 KN to test 3m columns. Certain sophisticated equipment like Profometer 5 (Model ā€œSā€), Universal Triaxial outfit and Core case (core cutter) have been purchased for carrying out research work by students and faculty. The priority research areas for research are Artificial Neural Networks, Fuzzy Systems and Genetic Algorithms, Their Applications in Civil Engg, Finite Element Analysis of structures, Micro & Macro analysis of Composites, Fiber Reinforced Concretes, Slurry Infiltrated Fibrous Concrete (SIFCON),Glass Fiber reinforced Concretes, High-performance-concrete, Low Cost Housing Materials and Techniques, Repair and Rehabilitation of structures, Light weight aggregates, Ferro cement ,Fracture Mechanics, Ground Improvement techniques, Heat transfer through soils, Soil cement blocks, Watershed Management. The teachers also participate in academic and personal counseling of students. The department aids in student placements by organizing group discussions, mock interviews, essay writing, debates, aptitude tests, technical quizzes, etc. The alumni of the department are occupying distinguished positions in reputed organizations and often contribute in the development activities of the department.
