ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the
design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built
environment. Put simply, civil engineers build bridges, roads, canals, dams,
tall buildings, and other large structures.
engineering was originally defined simply to distinguish non-military
engineering from military engineering but it actually represents so much more.
Without civil engineers we wouldn’t have a constant supply of clean water,
roads or trains to get to work in the morning, or sustainable energy to help us
save our planet.
Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2009. The B.E.
(Civil) program was duly approved and accredited by the AICTE and Affiliated to
Anna University. An intake of 60 was sanctioned initially. Subsequently, in the
year 2012, an additional intake of 60 was sanctioned. The department activities
are fully supported by the dedicated and qualified faculty. The department has
well experienced faculty and staff members of proven track record in the field
of Civil Engineering. All faculties are having a minimum qualification of post
graduate degree including 2 faculty members with Ph.D qualification. The
Faculty members in the department are periodically attending workshops and
conferences to upgrade their skills. In addition, the department also organizes
workshops, seminars, symposiums and staff development programme to expose about
the recent developments.
