The BTech program in Civil Engineering started in 2016

  • To cover fundamentals of Civil Engineering including engineering sciences, mathematics, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, water resources, environmental sciences, soil mechanics, foundation engineering, transportation and geomatics in a holistic mode
  • To emphasize upon developing “thinking” Civil engineers
  • To tackle un-orthodox engineering challenges in the field of Civil Engineering
  • To focus on innovative research like digital fabrication, innovative structures, new materials, wireless-sensors, modeling and simulation; and the current issue of climate change
