About the Department
The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2011-12 with an annual intake of 60 students. One of the primary Engineering Departments of the Institute, the department has grown tremendously and is now recognized as one of the major Engineering department. The Department of Civil Engineering offers B. Tech in Civil Engineering degree programme. The department has fully equipped and functional laboratories and all other lab infrastructure and equipment to meet the highest academic requirements. It undertakes consultancy work as a part of its interaction with industry/Govt. Authority and also organizing workshops, conferences, Seminars / Symposia for professional interaction. The department has highly experienced faculty with industry and research experience. Most of the faculties are postgraduates and PhDs. The faculty of the department continues to strive hard for the all round progress and development of the students.
Civil engineers conceive, design, build, supervise, operate, construct and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in the public and private sector, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment. Many civil engineers work in planning, design, construction, research, and education.
Civil engineers prepare permit documents for work on projects in renewable energy. They verify that the projects will comply with federal, state, and local requirements. These engineers conduct structural analyses for large-scale photovoltaic, or solar energy, projects. They also evaluate the ability of solar array support structures and buildings to tolerate stresses from wind, seismic activity, and other sources. For large-scale wind projects, civil engineers often prepare roadbeds to handle large trucks that haul in the turbines.
