Department of Civil Engineering
Structural engineering is the science and art of designing and making, with economy and elegance, buildings, bridges, frameworks, and other structures so that they can safely resist the forces to which they may be subjected. Read More...Geotechnical Engineering
Geotechnical engineering is the branch of civil engineering that deals with the engineering behavior of subsurface or earth materials. It includes (a) soil mechanics, which is essential to identify, characterize and study the mechanics of soil/rock and (b) applied soil mechanics, which transfers the behavioral knowledge to practice.

Construction Technology and Management revolves around the various activities encountered during the life cycle of a civil engineering project. It introduces the basic learning requirements for the civil engineer project manager and makes the appreciation for the qualitative nature of the construction project management.

A drastic increase in environmental pollution across the globe during the last few decades has caused mass environmental degradation & pollution leading to the necessity of providing more focus on involvement of technologies in Environmental Studies. Environmental Engineering is the integration of science and engineering principles to improve the natural environment, to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to remediate polluted sites.

Transportation plays a vital role in meeting the basic requirements of human being, economic development and enhancing the quality of life through quicker and safe transportation of goods and services. Major fields of transportation engineering consist of highway, railway, airport and waterway engineering For the development of efficient, faster and safe network of transportation system the task of engineers involves meticulous planning, functional design, development, operation and management of facilities created.

Ground vibrations during earthquakes cause forces and deformation in structures. Therefore structures need to be designed to resist such forces safely. Seismic forces induced during severe earthquakes are huge and hence the structures which do not suffer any damage become too expensive. Read More...Disaster Management
Disaster Risk Reduction is constantly promoted & may be treated as main streamed in the regular programmes of the department. According to the Disaster Management Act2005 , disaster can be defined as a catastrophe, mishap, calamity or grave occurrence in any area, arising from natural or manmade causes or by accident or negligence which results in substantial loss of life. Disaster management is basically concerned with earthquakes, cyclones, and hailstorm, cloudburst which comes under natural disaster while road, air, rail accidents, fire & epidemic fall under human made disaster. Effective planning & focus on prevention & mitigation greatly help in ensuring that (i) hazards do not transform itself into disasters & (ii) the cope up capacities of the vulnerable population is greatly increased.
