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.

The Civil Engineers do a lot more than design buildings and bridges. They can be found in the aerospace industry, designing jetliners and space stations, in the automotive industry, perfecting the load-carrying capacity of a chassis and improving the crashworthiness of bumpers and doors, and they can be found in the ship building industry, the power industry, and many other industries wherever constructed facilities are involved.

In India, things are looking up in the infrastructure sector. There is also great employment prospects for civil engineers in government and public sectors like the railways, municipal bodies, the Defense Forces, National Highway Authority of India, government development authorities like the DDA and government housing authority and many more.

In our institution this department has an annual intake of 60 students in Civil Engineering program.

The students are motivated for technical and creative activities besides classroom teaching and laboratory exercises through technical fests and tours. student's are also encouraged to participate in various group learning and discussion activities in addition to presentation of seminar and term paper presentations on individual basis.
