BUILDING THE FUTURE ON A FOUNDATION OF EXCELLENCE……
Civil Engineering, in a simple sense is the application of planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating infrastructures while protecting the public and environmental health, as well as improving existing infrastructures that have been neglected. Civil Engineers are trained in the areas of Surveying, Structural Analysis and Design, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Environmental Engineering. A Civil Engineering graduate can become a; Consulting Civil Engineer, Project Engineer, Project Manager, Contract Engineer, Contract Manager, Planning Engineer, Site Engineer, Construction Manager, Quantity Surveyor, Cost Engineer, Quality Assurance/ Quality Control Engineer, Quality Assurance/ Quality Control Manager and many more. Opportunities for higher studies are also available in allied disciplines such as Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Hydraulics Engineering, Remote Sensing, Irrigation Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Structural Engineering and Geodetic Engineering.
To develop into a globally reputed center of excellence in the field of Civil Engineering for imparting knowledge and technical skills suiting the needs of the society with distinct identity and character in teaching, research and consultancy.
To follow Teaching – Learning process and conducive infrastructure with the support of qualified and committed faculty in Civil Engineering Programs.
