ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.Civil Engineers are trained in the areas of Surveying, Construction management, Structural Analysis and Design, Geotechnical Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Environmental Engineering. A Civil Engineering graduate can become a; Consulting Civil Engineer, Project Engineer, Project Manager, Contract Engineer, Contract Manager, Planning Engineer, Site Engineer, Construction Manager, Quantity Surveyor, Cost Engineer, Quality Assurance/ Quality Control Engineer, Quality Assurance/ Quality Control Manager and many more. Opportunities for higher studies are also available in allied disciplines such as Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Hydraulics Engineering, Remote Sensing, Construction management, Irrigation Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Structural Engineering.
The Department of Civil Engineering was started in the year 2009 with an undergraduate program affiliated to M .G. University, Kottayam, Kerala with a sanctioned intake of 60 students, headed by Prof. M. V George. In 2012, the department started M. Tech course in Computer Aided Structural Engineering with an intake of 24 students and in 2013 expanded its domain by doubling the intake to B. Tech course from 60 to 120 seats. The department is blessed with highly qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members, without whom the achievements were never possible. Many of our faculty members have secured ranks at their U.G and P.G. level. Non-teaching staff members are also having good teaching and industrial experience. They are capable of handling any lab, which is very much beneficial to the students. The Department has state of the art laboratories with vast area, machinery, equipments and other facilities. In addition to high quality teaching and instruction, the department offers technical consultancy services also. Testing facilities are provided for different construction materials in Material Testing laboratory, Transportation Engineering laboratory & Environmental Engineering Laboratory. The Department has a separate library with 500 volumes of text books and a large number of journals essential and useful to both teachers and students. The department concentrates on the academic activities and gives motivation to students in cultural and extracurricular activities also.
