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 opportunities galore for civil engineers, with new players entering the market and more large-scale developments announced around the globe. The four year B.Tech programme of the department is aimed to inculcate a spirit of inquiry, develop the power of thinking, create analytical and experimental abilities, and generate interest in post graduate courses. The course is dedicated to deliver technically proficient and ethically responsible engineers to the society.
Civil engineers are trained in the areas of surveying, structural analysis and design, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering and environmental engineering. Opportunities for higher studies are also available in allied disciplines such as coastal and ocean engineering, hydraulic engineering, remote sensing, irrigation engineering and geodetic engineering.
