Department of Civil engineering offers a four-year degree course leading to the Bachelors of Technology in Civil Engineering. Department also offers Ph.D program with specialization in water and environment engineering. The course curriculum is designed to enhance the capability of civil engineers to make them aware of cutting edge technologies along with providing the foundation of traditional concepts. A strong foundation is laid through courses on Construction Technology, Structural Engineering and Steel Structures, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Water and Hydraulics Engineering and Computer Application. Beside, students are offered a variety of electives like Project Management, Geomatics, Computer Simulation, Construction equipment and methods. The theoretical courses are supplemented by imparting practical experience through well-equipped laboratories.
The Department actively promotes curriculum development activity by updating existing courses, developing new courses and preparing resource material for teaching. The Department has a number of ongoing research projects and sponsored research schemes from public and private sector organizations. It undertakes industrial consultancy works as a part of its interaction with industry and also organizes seminars/symposia for professional interaction. The Department contributes to the interdisciplinary academic and research activity of the Institute.
Our goals are to prepare all students with a technical background anchored in the fundamental of civil engineering together with breath of related knowledge needed to follow diverse career path in civil engineering and also:
- To provide a firm education in Mathematics, Science and Engineering which underline all technological development so that our students will be well equipped to adapt to changing technology.
- To establish elaborated laboratories conforming to the codes and the best for research level also.
- To provide the broad and fundamental technical base needed by students who plan for advance study in specialized area with the help of proper training and the guest lectures by the field specialist.
Department is equipped with state of art labs where the theoretical courses are supplemented by imparting practical experience. The department has 8 major laboratories:
