Department of Civil Engineering

Introduction

Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering. The Department has grown tremendously over the years and is now recognized as one of the major engineering department in the country. The department has developed strong links with the building and construction industry and academic and research with in the country. Beside high quality teaching and instruction, the Department is actively involved in basic and applied research and consultancy and provides high quality technical and consultancy to various organisations.
The Dept. has Civil Engineering Society that organizes expert lectures, group discussions, competitions, sports and other activities for the all-round development of the Civil Engineering students. The Department focuses on advance research and education in the board areas of Geotechnical, Structural, Transportation and Water Resources & Environmental Engineering. The departmental activities embrace Planning, Design, Construction and Management.
The academic activities of the Department emphasizes deep understanding of fundamental principles, development of creative to handle the challenges of Civil Engineering, and the analytical ability to solve problems which are interdisciplinary in nature. The Department also encourages its students to engage in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, essential for development, nurturing of team spirit, and developing organization skills. The faculty members of the department are involved in high quality research and consultancy activities, and they continue to enjoy academic leadership role.
