"Building the future,
on a foundation of excellence" Civil Engineers build the world’s infrastructure, which encompasses Railways, Highways, Bridges, Water-works, Skyscrapers, Canals, Wharves, Industrial Buildings, Rapid Transit Systems, Power Plants etc. They deal with the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of structures. There are galore opportunities for civil engineers, with new players entering the market and more large-scale developments announced around the globe. Civil Engineers play a very important role in improving the living standards of a society in the form of Structural Engineers, Transportation Engineers, Water Resources, and Environmental Engineers, Hydrologists, Geologists and Geotechnical Experts.
The Department was established in the year 2008, offers B.Tech program with an intake of 60 and M. Tech program in Structural Engineering with an intake of 18.
The B. Tech (Civil Engineering) program has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) successively twice i.e. in 2016 and 2019 (valid till 30 June, 2022).
The faculty provides latest industry practices that are ingrained to the students to make them excel in positions anywhere across the globe.
The main objective of department is to provide:
1. Industry Standard Facilities
2. Field Visits
The department houses ten academic laboratories under various verticals including Structural Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Advance Material Testing and also has one research laboratory as Advanced Concrete Research and Innovation Center (ACRIC) which is a nexus for improving the performance of concrete by infusing with ingenious materials and industrial waste and thereby decreasing the overall cement utility. The research center incorporates green building initiatives and reduction of drudgery by harnessing the salvaged resources from industrial and residential detritus.
In order to make teaching effective and interesting, the students are nurtured with a variety of learning activities including and not restricted to class room teaching, presentations, video lectures, MOOC courses, minor / honours courses, experiential learning (ExL) and online courses by faculty in the institute and across the globe.
The students are encouraged to learn advanced computing technologies to increase their core competency in the ever-growing market scenario as a complimentary technology for the core engineering knowledge. Also, advanced research software like Rivet, StaadPro etc., is taught in college premises by inviting experts from industries to impart their knowledge. The students are supported to go for full semester internships across the globe to various partner institutes to improve their prospects post their completion of graduate degree.
M. Tech (Structural Engineering)
M. Tech (Structural Engineering) is a two-year full time post graduate program approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) for the students who have B.E/B. Tech in Civil Engineering. The course is offered by department of Civil Engineering by highly qualified and experienced teaching faculty. Intake to this course is 18, selected through JNTUH-PGCET/GATE.
