related to earth, water, or civilization and their processes.
engineering today deals with power plants, bridges, roads, railways, structures,
water supply, irrigation, the natural environment, sewer, flood control,
transportation and traffic. In essence, civil engineering may be regarded as the
profession that makes the world a more agreeable place in which to live.
Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the
engineering branches.The department of Civil Engineering since its formation is
committed to research and development in civil engineering. The vision of the
department is to give an exposure to budding civil technocrats to various
challenges in the profession.
Civil Engineering is one of the largest of the
engineering disciplines, extending across many technical specialties. Civil
engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential
to modern life. These facilities vary widely in nature, size, and scope and
include space satellites and launching facilities, offshore structures, bridges,
buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, harbours, water
supply system and wastewater treatment plants.
A civil engineer is responsible
for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required
scale, and maintenance of the product. A civil engineer requires not only a high
standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative
