Department Overview

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2009. The department has eighteen highly qualified and dedicated faculty members headed by the Dean with vast experience.  There are five faculty members with a doctoral degree and two of them are recognized supervisors under Anna University, Chennai. The Department has also been recognized as a Research Centre by Anna University, Chennai. The faculty members are actively involved in research and consultancy activities. The consultancy focuses on Building Materials Testing, Soil investigations, Concrete Mix Design, Structural Design and Verification.

The Department is provided with good Infrastructural facilities and well-equipped Laboratories. The Laboratories include Concrete and Highway, Strength of materials, Hydraulics and Fluid Machinery, Soil Mechanics, Environmental Engineering, Survey and Computer. The department has 70 computers with 20 Mbps internet connectivity. The Department offers B.E. Civil Engineering degree programme and M.E. Structural Engineering programme. The Under Graduate programme (B.E.) in Civil Engineering was started in the year 2009-10 with a sanctioned of 72.   Based on its expertise, the department was permitted to offer Post Graduate programme (M.E.) in Structural Engineering from 2013-14 onwards with a sanctioned intake of 18 students.   Considering the ever-growing demand of Civil Engineers and growing emphasis on planning, a new and unique Under Graduate programme, B.E – Civil Engineering and Planning was introduced from the year 2016-17 onwards.

To achieve the vision of producing Internationally Acclaimed Civil Engineers the department adopts best teaching practices. Through the implementation of these effective teaching-learning methodologies, the Department has produced 10 University ranks in the B.E Civil Engineering Programme under Anna University. In order to bridge the gap between industry and academics, students are made to attend guest lectures and workshops by industry experts and a platform is arranged to interact with alumni members. Students are also motivated to participate in co-curricular, extra-curricular activities and also trained to compete for the competitive exams. The students have brought laurels to the department by winning prizes in Paper Presentations and other events in Symposiums. The placement track of the passing out students is very healthy. One of our students holds dual records in Guinness World Records, Limca Book of Records and India Book of Records. He also holds one Record in Asia Book of Records.
