ABOUT US

Civil Engineering buttresses all the characteristics of contemporary existence. Civil Engineers are contributing in all the fragments of infrastructural development of the society. These professionals must simultaneously be inquisitive, detail-oriented, and interested in the big picture. In their designs, Civil Engineers must consider potential environmental hazards, construction costs, and government regulations that can affect their creations. Our educational programme reflects this amply. B.E. Civil Engineering encompasses the full spectrum from structures through geomatics and earthquakes to transport while continuing to provide a sound understanding of basic Civil Engineering principles.
