Civil Department was started in the year 2002 with a sanctioned intake of 90 students. Our department has highly qualified and motivated staff members. Most of our staff members are doing research activities.


The mission of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is to produce graduates who possess technical competence in their chosen specialty area of Civil Engineering with integrity and a commitment that will prepare them to serve and contribute as innovators, professional engineers, and leaders in the global community.


To achieve the pinnacle of success in the area of sustainable constructions and green technologies, thus stimulating economic growth and making the society a better place to live in the global community.



The department strives to establish a system of quality assurance to continuously address, monitor and evaluate the quality education offered to students and to promote an effective teaching - learning process for the benefit to transform the institution into a Centre of Excellence in Engineering and Technological studies.



The educational objectives of the civil engineering program are designed to produce skilled engineers who could effectively contribute to the civil engineering profession with an ability to meet its current and future challenges. The civil engineering department is committed to produce civil engineers:

  • To apply fundamental technical knowledge and skills to find creative solutions to technological challenges and problems in various areas of basic sciences and engineering.

  • To analyze, design and use skills in order to formulate and solve Civil Engineering problems.

  • To practice civil engineering in a responsible, professional and ethical manner and implement eco- friendly sustainable technologies for the benefit of industry and society.

  • To create knowledge through research and development in Civil Engineering and allied fields and modernize the teaching levels.

  • To make students professionally competent by enhancing their communication skills, team spirit, leadership and also to prepare them for lifelong learning through innovative and research activities.

  • To upgrade our Curriculum and syllabi by interacting with courseware’s given by institution of international acceptance.

  • Interaction of the students with allied subjects such as architecture, electrical, mechanical and biotechnology.
