Civil Engineering Branch in our college started in the year 2011. It has grown to a full-fledged department with intake capacity of 120 students per annum. Our mission is to mould quality engineers to meet the technological challenges of the world. Every developing country must give more importance to infrastructure development. So, there is an increasing demand for Civil Engineers in the coming years.

Our laboratory facilities are excellent with all modern equipment. The strength of our department is the teamwork of highly qualified faculty specialized in all major areas of Civil Engineering. Department is blessed with dynamic students who have performed well in the past. Invited lectures by experts add an extra edge to the competitive advantage of our students. Industrial internship provides them a feel of the profession, before they leave the institution.
