About the Department
The Department of Civil Engineering has started functioning from the year 2008, offering B.E. degree programme in Civil Engineering with the sanctioned intake of 30. During the academic year 2013-2014 intake has been increased to 60. At present, the department has eleven faculty members having P.G. specialization in different areas of Civil Engineering such as Structural engineering, Construction planning & management, water resources engineering, Soil mechanics & foundation engineering & Environmental engineering & Management.
The Civil Engineering Department will excel in undergraduate and graduate instruction, in research in all sub-areas of civil engineering, and in service to the public consistent with social requirements of knowledge, development and applications. The Department will make significant contributions to the socio-economic development of the region, state and nation.
To provide quality education and to prepare nationally competitive undergraduate students for a successful career in civil engineering; to provide advanced skills and knowledge in state-of-the-art research and design in sub-areas of civil engineering for graduate students; and to provide service to the institute, university, engineering profession, and the public.
Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)
1. To produce academically sound, disciplined and competent under graduate Civil Engineers with a sound foundation in the mathematical, scientific and engineering fundamentals necessary to formulate, solve and analyze engineering problems.
2. To prepare them for post graduate studies, leading researchers and professors who create and disseminate new knowledge in Civil Engineering and to pursue lifelong learning, such as graduate work and other professional education.
3. To provide opportunity for Civil Engineering graduates to have practical field exposure on the civil engineering jobs.
4. To produce graduates who will become principals in the industries associated with civil engineering and professional engineers’ starting-up and growing their own new firms in association with their parents who have already established civil engineering firms
Programme Outcomes (POs)
Engineering Graduates will be able to
1.Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and civil engineering to the solution of complex engineering problems.
2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and anlyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal and environmental considerations
4. Conduct Investigations of complex problems: Use research- based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
5.Modern tool usage: Create, select, apply and appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess social, health, safety. Legal and cultural issues and consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and multidisciplinary environments.
12. Life- long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
