The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2014, to cater the need of eminent Civil Engineers for the Infrastructural growths. The department had been imparting quality education right from its inception to the technological advancements and requirements of the Industries through our well qualified and dedicated faculty members. The department is providing right kind of environment for students to groom themselves for innovative and challenging near future. The department has state of art laboratory facilities, which not only caters the requisites of the curriculum but also to extend the services like consultancy and material testing. The involvement of students in these services renders the knowledge and infuses notion of critical quality assessment of construction activities. The Civil Engineering department is marching towards to achieve Excellency and aims in creating premier technocrats for tomorrow in the field of construction industries.
Civil Engineering is the oldest and broadest discipline of Engineering which maintains the foundation for our modern society by implementing a range of public and private projects to improve the physical infrastructure and environment. The Civil Engineer comprehends and integrates scientific principles with engineering experience to plan, design and construct the modern infrastructure to enhance the quality of life.
The undergraduate program provides the future technocrats the theoretical knowledge, which is vital to apply the scientific approach to solve modern day problems that are encountered by the Civil Engineers. The UG Civil Engineering degree facilitates the acquaintance of knowledge to work in the widespread areas of civil Engineering like Environmental, Geotechnical, Structural, Transportation etc.
The Department of Civil Engineering of CIT is committed to inculcate the core competency skills to make the aspiring student strong with theoretical and practical aspects, which makes a graduate to outshine the competition and also to adopt to the challenges of the competitive world. We provide the opportunities to the students to enhances their practical knowledge, so as to bridge the gap between theoretical aspects by offering internships, Site visits, Project works at renowned companies, technical workshops, Student development programmes etc. Join us to become a Civil Engineer, gaining mastery over the subjects and the proficiency to spread the knowledge.
