About Department

In past years,Civil Engineers focused on design and construction of new facilities, such as buildings, bridges and highways, water treatment and environmental facilities, foundations and tunnels. Today's Civil Engineer not only has to design new facilities but must also analyze the effects of deterioration on infrastructure elements, considering environmental and economic sustainability.

Civil engineers must be equipped with in-depth knowledge of traditional, fundamental principles and new technologies in order to address the complex, interdisciplinary problems faced within society.

Being the oldest department of the institute, we offer a four-year course leading to the Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering with an intake of 180, two-year courses leading to Master's degree in two major specialisations of civil engineering as M. Tech in Structural Engineering with intake 25 and M,. Tech in Environmental Engineering with intake 18 .

The department of Civil Engineering is an active research center under the RTM Nagpur University and 13 Ph. Ds and 01 M. E. By Research degrees have been awarded and at present 27 PhD research Scholars and 16 ME (by research) Scholars are persuing their research activities in the department.
The department is having separate self sufficient computer center computers, printers, scanner, softwares like Autocad, Staad-pro, Autocivil, etc and also networking and internet facility.

The department has produced several eminent engineers who have made significant contributions iin various sectors of Civil Engineering Field.

Our Vision To become a benchmark department where teaching learning process is keeping pace with research and developments in civil engineering and everyone is committed to create competent human resources for prosperity and well being of industry, profession and society.

The Mission and Vision statements of the Department are framed in line with the Institutional Mission and Vision statements. The emphasis is given on Civil Engineering related perspectives.
Mission To prepare competent and responsible civil engineers for advancement of profession by providing excellent technical knowledge and skills and Create an academic environment for preparing the students in facing civil engineering challenges for the well being of society.
