Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the engineering
branches. It is the branch with lot of diversity right from structural to transportation
engineering, environmental to hydrology to hydraulics engineering, geology to geo-technology
to earthquake engineering; Civil Engineering can be considered as a single largest
branch among all the engineering branches.The Civil Engineering Department offers
a Bachelor of Technology degree (B Tech). The program emphasizes four core tracks
in Civil Engineering:
The Department of Civil Engineering works hard to create outstanding engineers through
