Course Code: 001

Civil engineering is concerned with the design, construction and maintenance of structures – including bridges, roads, buildings, dams and waterways. Among the many specializations within this diverse field, major areas are structural engineering, hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering and environmental engineering.



In past years, civil engineers focused on design and construction of new facilities, such as buildings, bridges and highways, water treatment and environmental facilities, foundations and tunnels. Today's civil engineer not only has to design new facilities, but must also analyze the effects of deterioration on infrastructure elements, consider system interdependencies and evaluate life-cycle impacts while also considering environmental and economic sustainability within the context of society. Civil engineers must be equipped with in-depth knowledge of traditional, fundamental principles and new technologies in order to address the complex, interdisciplinary problems faced within society. The department gives the students the necessary background to success within this new context and to become the future leaders of the profession.

Course Benefits

Civil Engineers build the world’s infrastructure. Within each branch of civil engineering, career path options vary. Experienced engineers generally do more complex analysis or design work, or management of more complex design projects, or management of other engineers, or into specialized consulting, including forensic engineering.

1) The civil engineering career opens a lot of opportunities in various Government Sectors. They are also employed in all major construction projects carried out by Central and State Government agencies.

2) There are equally good opportunities in the private sector for civil engineers as a Construction Engineer, Hydraulics Engineer, Structural Engineer, Transportation Engineer, Environmental Engineer etc.

3) Civil engineers can also get employed in armed forces where they can make imperative inputs in protecting our country.

4) Civil engineers can start up their own engineering consultancy and Construction Company and become successful managers and entrepreneurs.

5) Civil engineers can get employment abroad also particularly in gulf countries where a lot of construction activity is presently going on.
