Department of Civil Engineering
About Civil Department:
Civil Engineering Department was started with intake strength of 60 students in the academic year 2008. Intake was enhanced to 90 in the next academic year. Post graduate program in Structural Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering was started in the academic year 2010. The department is having nine different laboratories. The department is equipped with advanced and sophisticated equipments like Total Station, 400KN and 1000KN Universal Testing Machine, 2000KN compression testing machine, triaxial and consolidation testing units. Computer lab is having licensed softwares like NISA civil, Autocad education etc. which the students can use for analysis, design & drawing of structures. Civil Engineering Association has been established so that the students can take part in these association activities and enrich their technical knowledge and also improve their confidence level through addressing, gathering, group discussions.
The Mission of Civil Engineering Department is to produce outstanding Civil Engineering graduates with highest ethics. The department aims in imparting strong basic and applied research for National needs to serve industry, profession and community through novel solutions
