About the Course

Civil Engineering involves planning, designing, executing and maintaining structural works. Civil Engineers develop infrastructure to have a profound effect on the society considering the function, aesthetics, economics and sustainability.

The course features basic sciences, Mathematics, Engineering graphics, Computing techniques along with the fundamental Engineering principles of construction materials. Building Drawing and Laboratory classes in testing of materials help to understand Civil Engineering in a practical way. 

The fundamental principles are applied to study the behaviour of solids, Fluids and Soils.  Surveying and Environmental Engineering are introduced.

In the third year analysis and design of steel and concrete structures and Foundation Engineering are focused.  The students can opt for a special elective subject prescribed in the curriculum.

  • Structural Analysis
  • Design of Steel structures
  • Design of concrete structures
  • Design of Hydraulic structures

In the Final year, management and maintenance of construction projects are dealt.  The students have to undertake challenging real projects individually in analysis and design of structures. 

Electives such as

  • Structural Dynamics
  • Earthquake Engineering
  • Housing Planning & Management  
  • Bridge Structures
  • Repair and Rehabilitation of Structures
  • Tall Structures

are offered to enhance the knowledge in special areas of Civil Engineering.
