About The Department

The Programme :

Civil engineering is a broad field of engineering dealing with the planning, construction, and maintenance of fixed structures, or public works, as they are related to earth, water, or civilization and their processes. We emphasize every civil engineer to be responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the project. Here we not only provide high standard of engineering knowledge but also imbibe supervisory and administrative skills.

Career Scope :

The Civil Engineering profession deals with a wide variety of engineering tasks including

  • Designing, supervision and construction
  • Activities of public works like roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, and dams.
  • Construction of water works, sewage systems, ports etc.
  • Offers a multitude of challenging career opportunities.

The Diploma qualification provides a good grounding for students who wish to continue further studies or employment where the skills, knowledge and understanding of planning, designing, construction & manufacturing are useful. The programme will develop the student’s understanding for a full range of careers within the manufacturing and maintenance industry as members of a flexible, competitive, multi-skilled workforce.
As a matter of fact, today’s technology driven industries are forcibly looking at diploma students to fill up a lot of vacancies in their organizations when higher engineering skills may not be immediately required

HOD Message

Rashmi .M.S

It gives me a pleasure & pride to discuss in detail about remarkable education world in the department of civil engineering. The course includes the study of planning , designing & implementation of structural activities. Civil engineers build the world literally speaking. They are responsible for analysis design ,construction upgrading & maintenance of all forms of infrastructure for better quality of life & sustainable economy. I’m glad to tell few words that you can’t go back & change the beginning , but u can start where you are & change the ending, if you are searching for a missed steps of success.
