About Our Department

Welcome to civil engineering



Civil Engineering is one of the oldest branches of the Engineering Profession.  It deals with the planning, design, construction and operation of physical facilities essential to modern life and community living.


These include Urban development projects, housing and associated structures for residential and industrial uses, land, water and air transportation facilities, water supply and waste water treatment and disposal systems, reservoirs and flood control dams, and  many others.  The practice of Civil Engineering is devoted to the improvement of the environment, making human activities productive, safe and enjoyable, and providing esthetically pleasing surroundings.


The scope of studies in Civil Engineering is so wide that each of its special areas can be developed as separate programmes of study such as structural, water resources, environmental, geotechnical, transportation, and construction engineering.


The Department of Civil Engineering was established at the inception of the College in 1947.  Technical courses took off with the establishment of the College as far back as 1947.  The courses then were meant to give training to Engineering assistants for government and private concerns. The department offers courses leading to the award of the National Diploma and the Higher National Diploma in Civil Engineering.  The department has turned out 60 sets of graduands to date, among whom are seasoned professional engineers, university professors, and career technocrats in some State Government ministries.
