Civil Engineering is fundamentally a social activity. In the practice of Civil Engineering, we are aware of this, and that is why it is right for us to insist on clarity and intelligibility. We have a specific goal and vision of developing the department into a full fledged learning centre for conceptual knowledge. The department is geared to translate its vision into deeds, by producing quality technocrats with inbuilt character of commitment and hardworking, who can interpret and implement the knowledge acquired for the development of society; by organising national seminars and workshops to expose the students and staff the recent trends in R&D; by improving teaching learning process by supplementing the regular class room instruction with teaching aids such as LCD projector; by conducting technical seminars& group discussions on a continuous basis to enhance knowledge as well as communication skills; by involving faculty in both research and consultancy activities, by encouraging the faculty to update their knowledge in both academic and practical fields by sending them to various conferences, workshops, seminars and through industrial training during vacation.
