Civil Engineering - Profile
About the Department:

One of the principal departments, the department of civil engineering runs the gamut of academia in civil engineering, from conferring degrees at various levels to carrying out research and consultancy. A world-class curriculum, which is updated frequently, is followed for each programme offered by the department. Being a department at an institute of national importance, the department is in close association with major public and private sector undertakings in sponsored research and industrial consultancy. Across the country, the department, through its myriad of activities, on the whole plays a pivotal role in the progress of civil engineering.

The Department of Civil Engineering has well equipped laboratories in the specialized areas. The laboratories are well equipped with all modern equipment’s to cater the needs of UG students as well as consultancy works. Testing facilities related to Civil Engineering is provided in our laboratories to fulfill the need of industries.

  • To groom our young students to become professionally and morally sound engineers.

  • To conduct regular continuing education and community development programmes.

  • To provide extension and consultancy services to public, private, and industrial sectors.

  • To excel in Industrial Research and consultancy with appropriate national and International linkages and to maintain highest standards in the field of Civil Engineering
Scope of Civil Engineering
Due to increase in the scope of civil engineering with the passage of time, it has now got diversified into many branches of study. Some of the significant ones include structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, hydraulic engineering, environmental engineering and a few more important areas of study.

Engineers are employed by a wide range of companies in the United States, from small startup businesses focused on a new invention idea to large-scale companies that work on immense contracts. Engineers from different fields constantly work together to create successful products. When considering the design and manufacture of an aircraft, for example, the workforce behind the development will include aeronautical engineers optimizing airflow paths, analysis engineers evaluating the strength of landing gear developed by design engineers, electronics engineers developing wiring methods and pilot controls, ergonomic engineers designing comfortable seating and computer engineers programming the aircraft operation systems, including everything from the autopilot system to the cabin crew call system.

Apart from structures on land and general transportation systems, civil engineers are also responsible for building good transportation systems for flow of water, i.e. the water distribution systems. The main activities in this undertaking are designing pipelines for flow of water, drainage facilities, canals, dams, etc. Dams are a major source for non-conventional source of electricity and are hence in high demand today. While designing these structures, the civil engineers take into account the various properties of fluids to calculate the forces acting at different points.

About Civil Engineering
Civil Engineering is field of engineering sciences, related to Design, Construction and Maintenance of buildings, dams, bridges, tunnels, highways and other structures by the use of Physical Laws, Mathematical Equations and Theories of Mechanics. Civil Engineers utilize the available resources (expertise, materials, manpower) to complete the project in the given time span keeping in view the time, expenditure, environmental issues and physical hazards of the project.

Also known as the Mother of all Engineering, it is the oldest, broadest, most simple and useful of all engineering sciences. Being a broader field Civil Engineering is divided into the following sub-categories and / or fields.

  • Geo technical Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Transportation Engineering
  • Water Resource engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Earthquake Engineering
  • Urban Planning
