Introduction

Introduction

Department of Civil Engineering was established in AY 2002-03. It has evolved steadily since then and made significant strides in terms of infrastructure, faculty expertise, student excellence and research activities. The Department presently has highly qualified and experienced faculty members with strong commitment to the engineering education and professional ethics. The department has well equipped laboratories and also active student’s chapters of professional bodies like IEI, IGS, ISTE and IWWA.

Recently from the academic year 2022-23, PhD Research center for the Civil Engineering has been started.

Department Profile

Honors Course Information:

State-of-the-art courses on ‘Honors in Architecture and Town Planning’ and ‘Honors in Metro Construction’ are introduced as an Honors Program under Civil Engineering curriculum starting from June 2021. The honors courses will start from TE civil and will continue in BE as well.

The students who have scored 6.5 CGPA are allowed to opt Honors course. Choice is given to individual student to undertake Honors programs from the third year engineering (Fifth Semester) to fourth year engineering (Eighth Semester). Honors programs will be opted from offered programs by SPPU. Students once registered for the Honors programme need to complete all credits assigned for the specific Honors Programme in the period of 4 years from the Semester-V. Degree with Honors will be awarded only after the completion of Honors Programme along with respective UG programme degree.
