DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING


 

ABOUT DEPARTMENT


 

The Department started offering B.Tech programme in Civil Engineering in the year 2006. Our faculty comprises of highly qualified engineers having experience in both teaching and industry with many of them doing PhD. All faculty actively participating in research oriented programmes, design and construction programmes and quality improvement courses to improve their technical skills.

 

VISION

To transform into a studio creating change agents in civil engineering with professional competency, integrity and ethical values for serving the society with the highest level of proficiency through their chosen domain.

 

MISSION

  • To create civil engineers of global standards to serve the society collaboratively, competently and ethically.
  • To provide an academic environment for research and development for the benefit of all stakeholders.
  • To inculcate professionalism in students through team work, effective communication and leadership skills.
  • To encourage and empower the faculty in the field of engineering education and mentoring to improve the teaching-learning process.
  • To impart hands on experience to aspiring undergraduates through interdisciplinary research projects, industrial training and consultancy work.

 

 

PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES


The graduates will

  • Apply technical expertise to identify and resolve any complex civil engineering problems with the help of modern engineering tools and lifelong learning to meet the specified needs.
  • Develop cost-effective solutions for a sustainable environment with deep insight in societal and ecological issues by adhering to professionalism.
  • Exhibit professional ethics, management and leadership qualities with good communication skills facilitating to work in a multi-disciplinary team.

 

PROGRAMME SPECIFIC OUTCOMES


A graduate of Civil Engineering Program will demonstrate:

  • Ability to create new designs with materials of minimum embedded energy through research and development focusing on global quality of life.
  • Ability to recognize the need of the hour like housing, sanitation, waste management, use of renewable energy etc. for a sustainable environment.
  • Ability to analyze the effects of geological and environmental factors like earthquakes, tornadoes etc. and to apply the same to different civil engineering structures to make it stable under such adverse conditions.

 

Programmes


1. B.Tech Civil Engineering

          

  The Department of Civil Engineering was constituted in the year 2006 with an undergraduate programme recognised by CUSAT with a sanctioned intake of 60 students. From 2015 admission onwards, the programme is affiliated to APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU). The programme aims at producing highly qualified manpower in Civil Engineering to meet the rapid technological advances and industrial requirements.

 

 2. M.Tech in Construction Engineering & Management

           

 M.Tech in Construction Engineering and Management introduced in the year 2013 under the department of Civil Engineering provides Engineers and Researchers an opportunity to gain in depth knowledge in the field of management and design aspects related to Construction. The course is formulated such that the key areas of Construction Engineering are discussed to provide good understanding of the subject.

  

  In order to meet the current demands in construction industry , our M.Tech course provides Scientist, Engineers and Innovators alike a deep insight into Construction Engineering, Foundation Engineering, Earthquake Resistant Design, Design of Special Structures, Structural Dynamics, Metal Structures, Geotechnical Engineering, Legal Aspects in Construction, Fire and Safety Engineering, Rehabilitation, Computational Techniques, Prestressed Structures, Eco-friendly Construction.
