Civil Engineering

March 15, 2012

The Department of Civil Engineering is one of the oldest and finest branches started in the year 2009 in CARE School of Engineering. The department offers Bachelor’s degree programme of four years duration and two years Master’s degree program in Construction Management. Our graduate education programs band together several fields of inquiry, such as, Structural, Environmental, Transportation, Soil and Foundation Mechanisms etc. To support these programmes, the Department has a team of highly qualified and professionally experienced faculty members with specializations in the areas such as structural, surveying, construction engineering,water resources,environmental, transportation, geotechnical, remote sensing and GIS. The enterprising faculties of the department regularly conduct specialized short courses, lectures and industrial visits to the students, which are the need of the hour in the industrial point of view, and help them to understand the Civil Engineering subjects to its core.

 

Students feel comfortable with fully equipped laboratories and the modern machineries available for practice in the workshops. They pursue their educational and research interests under the generous and watchful eyes of the friendly faculty through practical training, mini projects and guest lectures from industrial experts and eminent professors from leading institutes of our country and abroad.

Department of Civil Engineering provides leadership in the field by focusing on technological innovations, seeking advances in basic knowledge, concentrating on quantitative and analytical approaches, novel experiment-based modelling, and the use of appropriate tools and technology. The department boasts of giving personal attention to each and every students need, excellent teaching and innovative, multi-disciplinary approach to research.
