DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING


OVERVIEW

Civil engineering is a people-serving profession, concerned with the planning, design, construction and operation of large, complex systems such as buildings and bridges, water purification and distribution system, highways, rapid transit and rail systems, ports and harbors, airports, tunnels and underground construction, dams, power generating systems and structural components of aircraft and ships. Civil engineering also includes urban and city planning, water and land pollution and treatment problems and disposal of hazardous wastes and chemicals. The design and construction of these systems are only part of the many challenges and opportunities faced by civil engineers. The recent revolution in computers, communication and data management has provided new resources that are widely used by the professional civil engineer in providing safe, economical and functional facilities to serve our society.

At CIT, the Civil Engineering branch started in the academic year 2010 with an annual intake of 60 students. The department has state-of-the-art laboratories equipped with modern equipment. Currently undergraduate degree (B.E.) is offered by the department.

ACTIVITIES

The department routinely organizes technical talks by leading industry experts and academicians in diverse areas to spread awareness among students and staff. The department also undertakes Consultancy and Product Development projects for industries.

PROFESSIONAL BODIES

The Civil Engineering Association (CEA) was formed with the primary purpose of exposing our students, civil-engineers-to-be, to the rigours of the profession. With both students and faculty as its members, the organization is responsible for conducting lecture series dispensed by distinguished practitioners of the trade to supplement classroom study with real-life civil engineering problems.
