Civil Engineering


    Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, plan, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline and is made up of many different areas or disciplines. It is important for civil engineers to have an understanding of all these disciplines as projects often involve many of them at the same time. More than any profession, civil engineering can have a positive effect on the protection of our environment. Since its foundation in 2009 under Visveswaraya Technological University, the Department of Engineering has grown to become one of the largest departments.

     Renowned for both its teaching and research, the Department strives to address the world's most pressing challenges with science and technology. To achieve this goal, the Department collaborates with other disciplines, institutions, companies and entrepreneurs. The Department of Civil Engineering offers on-campus programme at the undergraduate level. The curriculum features coursework in all areas. Civil Engineering is an integrated department comprising of the best academics, staff and students from around the world.

    Since its beginning, the Department of Civil Engineering has attracted exceptional faculty to teach our students and advance the discipline. That great tradition continues today as is evidenced by our ever-increasing list of faculty patents, inventions and memberships in academic institution and in peer recognition. We now boast of an impressive academic faculty, all of them with doctorates in their chosen field. Add to this our research faculty who have specialized in some of the latest areas in Civil Engineering, which includes, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Water resource Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, CAD-Structures, Geology, and so on actively involved in some of the joint research projects with industries and Government Agencies. The department has Memorandum of Understanding with Construction Industry Development Council (Established by the Planning Commission, Government of India and Construction Industry), New Delhi dated 26th May 2014.

     The department has had many funded projects from Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology. The students of Civil Engineering have performed excellently well in campus placements of reputed IT industries and construction industries which will help our students to address major challenges and develop complete solutions in their professional life.
