Head of the Department
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
Construction and housing sector have become the major growth drivers in the Indian economy. The Civil branch is gaining more importance due to the need to create structures and buildings resisting to earthquake and other natural calamities, with this in mind the Civil Engineering department is started. Civil Engineering Department was established in 2008. The intake of UG program is 60. The department envisages to create world class civil engineers. The department has highly qualified staff with research and industrial experience. The department is equipped with the required infrastructure and the state-of-the-art laboratories. The students of the department also excel in the University and secure merit ranks every year. Dr. S. A. Dhale is the Head of the Department.
