Students of this course are taken through the design, construction and operation of the facilities essential for modern life ranging from transportation systems such as roads, railways, bridges, highways, water ways and look after the day to day needs such as water supply and public health, water treatment plants and supply system, energy efficient buildings etc. Civil Engineers are problem solvers, meeting the challenges of pollution, traffic congestion, drinking water and energy needs, urban redevelopment and community planning. We aim at moulding professional engineers who can occupy an essential position in the socioeconomic development of the nation.
After undergoing the common subject in basic sciences in the first two semesters, the students undergo courses in building drawing, surveying and leveling, structural analysis and design, strength of materials, open channel hydraulics and Concrete Technology in semester 3 and 4.
In semesters 5 and 6, the students are trained in Computer Aided Design and Drawing, Numerical Analysis & Programming Methods, Highway, Railway, Airport Engineering, Bridge Engineering, Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Hydraulics and water Resources Engineering. All these courses are supplemented with laboratory work.
In the final year students are trained on design and drawing of various hydraulic structures, steel structures and RCC structures. Elective papers on IT related subjects and Finite Element Method add to the versatility and curriculum. Thus we provide both the academic background and practical experience to set on the path to become an excellent Civil Engineer with good prospects in India and abroad.
The laboratory practical work for this course includes surveying, strength of materials, concrete technology, Computer Aided Design and Drafting, Open Channel Hydraulics, Hydraulic Machinery, Geotechnical, Transportation and Environmental Engineering.
