SRCE > Civil Engineering
About the Department:
Civil Engineering is rightly considered the most versatile among all Engineering branches. It is the branch with a lot of Diversity right from Surveying, Geo-Technology to Structural Engineering, Environmental Sciences to Hydraulics, and Transportation to Hydrology. Civil Engineering can be considered the single largest core engineering branch.
The department of Civil Engineering was started in 2000 to expose budding civil Technocrats to various challenges in the profession having a highly qualified and experienced faculty with an Excellent Academic record.
About the Program:
The Civil Engineering (CE) Program is a 4-year program which enables aspiring Engineers to develop Thinking, Collaborative and Technical Skills for solving complex Civil Engineering problems and to learn how to Assimilate new Knowledge needed for the Design, Construction, and maintenance of Roads, Bridges, Buildings, Water Supply, Irrigation, Flood control, Ports, and other Infrastructure while considering impact in various contexts. The CE Program prepares Individuals to engage in any field of Civil Engineering and moreover, Educates them in any of these Specialised fields: Engineering Geology, Fluid Mechanics, Surveying, Applied Hydraulic Engineering, Water Supply Engineering, Highway Engineering, Railway, Airports, Docks, and Harbour Engineering.
On Successful completion of the Civil Engineering Degree programme, the Graduates shall exhibit the following:
A solid understanding of the Civil Engineering discipline, including an ability to evaluate, analyze, and synthesize both existing and new knowledge.
Critical analysis of Civil Engineering problems and Innovation Critically analyze complex Civil Engineering problems, apply Independent judgment for synthesizing Information and make Innovative advances in a Theoretical, Practical and Policy context.
Conceptualize and solve Civil Engineering problems, evaluate potential solutions, and arrive at a solution at Technically feasible, Economically viable and Environmentally sound solutions with due consideration of Health, Safety, and Socio-Cultural factors.
Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of Mathematics, Science, Engineering fundamentals, and Engineering Specialization to the solution of Complex Engineering problems.
