  ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
Amongst all branches of Engineering, the range and application of Civil Engineering is
the broadest and the most visible. The nature of this profile makes it an evergreen
prospect for career minded youngsters.
The Department of Civil Engineering was started in the year 2013 with an intake of 60
students. The State-of- art Laboratories are set up to cater the needs of students. The
course is aimed at training students for suitable skilled engineering personnel required
for industries and governmental organizations. To gain valuable contact with industry
and to have practical exposure, routine lectures are supplemented with distinguished
lectures, field trips offering valuable networking opportunities with future employers.
The full-fledged department is headed by Dr. H.S. Dayananda. He has a credential of
28 years in teaching and supported with qualified, experienced, and dedicated
colleagues with different specializations of Civil Engineering.
To be a centre of excellence in Civil Engineering committed for creation and
