About the Department

The Department of Civil Engineering is started in the year 2009-2010. It has been started with the objective to create outstanding engineers, with advanced teaching and learning aids for the students. The department has well qualified faculty members and excellent laboratory facilities. The undergraduate program imparts students to master over the field of Civil Engineering besides knowledge of recent trends and development to shine as a successful civil engineer. Students gain practical experience from field visits to the construction sites, dams and irrigation structures, etc. The department ranges a postgraduate program in order to provide wide knowledge on the core of Structural Engineering. Students gain training in their field of study through internships.

Job Opportunities

There is huge demand for civil engineers in India and it is also expected to get a boost as the country gets ready to upgrade its infrastructure with growing economic and political clout in the world.

Civil engineers are employed in the public and private sectors in large numbers in all branches of design, construction, and maintenance of roads, highways, bridges, dams, canals, docks, airports, and housing complexes and in environment management etc. Civil engineers also make a career in quality testing laboratories, join military and defense services, or work as consultants. The career opens a lot of opportunities in numerous government departments. Civil engineers are employed in all major construction projects carried out by central and state government agencies.

There are equally good opportunities in the private sector for civil engineers. A major opening for qualified civil engineers is also in armed forces where they can make vital contribution to the protection of the country. Last but not the least you can set up your own engineering consultancy.


The civil engineers are involved working in the areas of design, construction, maintenance of roads, highways, bridges, dams, canals, docks, airports, housing complexes and in environment management etc.some of the familiar hiring companies of civil engineering are l&t constructions, dlf building india, oberoi realty, unitech groups, hcc infrastructure, urc constructions, sobha developers, afcons india pvt.
