Project and Consultancy
With the financial grant received from the
Ministry of H.R.D., Govt. of India, modernisation as well as research & development
projects have been undertaken in Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental
Engineering. Transportation Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering and Structural
The department regularly offers Consultancy service to a number of agencies
including government and public sector undertakings such as PWD, OBCC, NALCO,
NTPC, TTPS, MCL, CMPDI, RITES, RRCC, TAMRIT, GAMMON INDIA , GANNON DUNKERLY etc.
Research activities imparts momentum to the
growth and is the hall mark of any academic department. With the limited
facilities available for such activity in the department, its faculties are
carrying out research in some frontier areas of Civil Engg. as listed below :
- Earthquake resistant design and construction practices.Advanced Structural materials.
- Fluid Structure interaction.
- Waste utilisation in construction.
- Pavement Materials.
- Structural Dynamics.
- Geotechnical applications of flyash.
- Stabilisation of expansive soils.
- Air Pollution.
A good number of papers in the above area are being presented and published
at national and international conferences as well as in reputed national and
Scope of Civil Engineering
Civil Engineering, the oldest and the parent branch
of the Engineering is as old as human Civilization that concerns itself with
construction and maintenance of public utilities like buildings, roads, bridges,
water supply system etc. Rapid industrialisation and urbanisation has given birth
to challenging construction of skyscrapers, flyovers, long span bridges, atomic power
plants, gigantic industrial complexes etc. to mention a few. To accomplish such feats
optimally, design and construction management has taken roots in Civil Engineering.
With continued technological advancements, the scope of the Civil Engineering has
further broadened and diversified into new areas such as Computer Aided Design,
Computer Aided Drafting, Offshore Technology, Earthquake Engineering, Robotic
Construction, Space Structures etc.
A Student graduating in Civil Engineering can opt for employment in state
and central government departments, defence services, public and private sector
undertaking and privately owned consulting firms and construction firms. He may
also become an entrepreneur. The interested graduates may prosecute higher studies
in conventional or specialised fields and may join R & D organisations or choose
teaching as a profession.
The department has highly qualified faculties. Besides being imparted by textual
knowledge, students are accompanied by faculty members to nearby construction
sites and industrial organisations for acquainting them with field practices and
The AICTE has approved 2 years regular P.G. programme in Structural Engumeering
and 2½ years part time P.G. Course in Environmental Science and Engineering as a
Continuing Education Programme for regular as well for the engineers employed in
the nearby organisation. The introduction of few .P.G. courses would further
enhance the academic excellence in the department.
This Department has been recognised as a QIP Centre by AICTE/MHRD.
