Department of Civil Engineering,

HEAD CE

MESSAGE
:


India

has

entered

into

a

major

infrastructural

expansion

requiring

Civil

Engineers

to

play

a

important

role

in

national

building

-

the

second

time

around

after

India's

Independence

in

1947
.

So,

the

Department

has

set

its

goals

for

a

new

era

with

a

technology

product
-
oriented,

professional

focus,

and

embarked

on

undertaking

changes

towards

meeting

the

needs

for

the

nation
.

Updating

curriculum

of

academic

programs

facilities

of

laboratories

(including

computer

lab

with

new

updated

software's),

including

younger

students

in

projects

are

three

important

changes

that

are

underway
.

This

crucial

effort

of

the

Department

of

Civil

Engineering

is

steered

by

its

active

faculty

members
.

The

Department

of

Civil

Engineering

with

its

multifaceted

faculty

continues

to

maintain

and

cultivate

its

strong

links

with

the

infrastructural

industry

and

academic

and

research

institutions

both

within

and

outside

the

country
.

So

with

the

mission

to

offer

world
-
class

undergraduate

and

post
-
graduate

education,

research

guidance,

professional

consultancy,

outreach

and

manpower

training

as

well

as

leadership

in

Civil

Engineering
.
