Welcome to
Department of Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering department came into existence in 2016 in a rather modest way with three faculty members, 25 B.Tech.Students, and one Ph.D. student. The Department has evolved significantly since then on all fronts. The faculty strength has risen to 15, and the number of B.Tech.Students have increased to 158, and the number of Ph.D. scholars in the Department has been increased to 55. The Department has also started two years of master’s programs to offer M.Tech. in Water Resources and Environment and M.Tech. in Structural Engineering and Geomechanics. The Department has commissioned multiple basic academic laboratories and advanced research laboratories. The Department is actively engaged in industrial collaboration through research and consultancy projects with various government and private industries.
