HoD’s Message

Greetings and welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering at EPCET!

Civil Engineering is one of the discipline of Engineering profession that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of all type of manmade structures like buildings, roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, and railways etc.

Without the existence of Civil Engineering, society wouldn’t function properly. There would be no treated water to drink, no safe buildings and structures, no transportation infrastructure for travelling and no drainage and irrigation channel.

There are multiple sub-division and specializations in Civil Engineering such as Architecture engineering, Coastal engineering, Construction engineering, Structural engineering, Earthquake engineering, Environment engineering, Geotechnical engineering, Transportation engineering, Hydraulic and water resources engineering, Nanoscience and nanotechnology, and Urban engineering. Depending on the interest of an individual, he/she can specialize.

Department of Civil Engineering is committed to working towards developing Engineers with a rich blend of Knowledge, Cognitive abilities, technical competencies, practical skills in the domain of Civil Engineering, and 21st Century skills to ensure the holistic development of students. Department places emphasis on all the important aspects of Civil Engineering such as structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, construction technology, transportation, hydraulic and water resources engineering, environmental engineering and application of modern technologies and tools in civil engineering.

Department is well prepared for the teaching of the courses. Faculty use modern teaching aids, innovative pedagogical methods for quicker learning of concepts, and design innovative assessment methods for igniting the students’ thinking. Department offers a number of competency and skill development courses to make the students industry-ready. To bridge the gap between industry and academia a number of courses are offered through Industry Institute Integrated Learning programs.

Students are trained in life skills- focusing on communication skills, behavioural skills, ethics, and human rights and environmental aspects. Opportunities are available for students to study courses related to innovation and entrepreneurship development. The placement department offers a number of courses that help students to prepare for the corporate environment.

Department conducts a number of co-curricular activities like hackathons, technical fests for students to compete. Students are encouraged to take part in intercollegiate competitions. There are a number of technical clubs where students can become members and pursue their technical interests. Students are encouraged to take part in sports, cultural activities, and community services.

Department encourages and assists students to do their internships in well-known technology companies and Department lays emphasis on student projects to help students to learn to solve near–real-life problems.

Thus, I assure a holistic development of students joining our department and prepare them to face the future with confidence.

Join us to learn and experience the modern Civil Engineering program at EPCET!
