ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Considered as one of the oldest engineering discipline, the profession deals with a wide variety of engineering tasks including planning, designing, supervising, constructing and maintaining activities of public works like roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, dams, water works, sewage system, ports etc. and offers a multitude of challenging career opportunities.

Civil engineering discipline was started in the academic year 2005-2006. Civil dept. has a student's association called “ INTELECTUAL CIVIL ACADEMIC NEST” (ICAN) which has conducting a National level Technical Symposium every year. Numbers of Workshops, Seminars and Guest Lectures are being arranged for the students to update and upgrade this knowledge in the technical field.
