Civil Engineering is a Professional Engineering discipline and it is the Mother branch of Engineering that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Materials Engineering, Coastal Engineering, Surveying, and Construction Engineering.

The course outline of civil field programmes gives the fundamental knowledge and flexibility as it has different types of work to do like designing, surveying and maintaining a structure, as well as it provides a better future for civil engineers. The purpose of this course is to make students learn to natural resources with preventing the environment.The principle educational objective of our department is to provide the students with fundamental and high tech knowledge and the skills needed to resolve the problems related to construction and maintenance of infrastructure in harmony with the society and environment.


The department of civil engineering efforts will be dedicated to formulate and implement high quality education in civil engineering, to promote innovative and original thoughts in the minds of civil engineers to face the future challenges, technology, research and consultancy with global linkages.


To build young Technocrats by imparting their technical knowledge in the field of civil engineering, by laying the foundation for future engineers, who can meet the demands of industry and community effectively in all part of civil works and to make significant contribution in the economic development of the state, region and nation.

Program Educational Objective

To educate the graduates with the basic and advanced knowledge in civil Engineering and to apply the fundamentals of Mathematics, Science, Management and computing in engineering principles.
