About Department

Civil Engineering is one of the major basic branch in engineering. The work ranges from basic concepts related to engineering to the overall developments of the nation. A Civil Engineer responsible for Planning, Analysis, Designing and Execution of the all construction related activities. It also includes cost estimation, hydraulic designs, soil engineering, transportation, environmental issues, surveying etc. Civil Engineers are often expected to provide the best solution possible for the economical, efficient and environment friendly designs to serve the society in best possible ways. This ultimately results in development of creative solutions to problems that often would have been designed differently without the budget constraints dictated by modern society.
