Seeds sown somewhere around 2008-09 are now showing sprouts, and we are sure this will grow to become a landmark in the history of our University. It is well said that the beginning of all great things is small, and our department is not an exception. Started in 2008 with an intake of 60 students, we have, to our credit, the addition of 600+ skilled civil engineers in service to our nation. From the very first batch, we have actively pursued on and off-campus placement opportunities for our students, and it's a matter of pride that nearly all of our students have been successfully placed. Some students have opted for higher education and excelled at institutions like IITs, NITs, and State Engineering Colleges. Despite facing limitations in facilities, our department's progress has been possible due to the patience and enthusiastic cooperation of our dedicated students. They have undeniably carved a niche for themselves on our campus. The recognition as a State University will undoubtedly uplift the morale of every family member associated with the Department.

Evolution and Excellence:

In 2012, we introduced our Ph.D. program. Currently, five research scholars are actively engaged in the field of Structural Engineering and Materials. We are pleased to offer fellowships to full-time Ph.D. students under the TEQIP project. Our B. Tech. curriculum is meticulously designed, blending the requirements of the AICTE model, syllabi of other renowned universities, and the practical needs of industries in India. The department's focal point is to nurture graduates and postgraduates with robust fundamentals essential for application-oriented professionals.

Research and Support:

Over the years, our department has secured substantial funding from esteemed organizations like AICTE, UGC, TEQIP, and the State Government for a variety of research projects. We have established fundamental laboratories to cater to our curriculum requirements. Our faculty members boast a strong background in researching current issues within the discipline. Numerous students from our department have achieved success in competitive examinations such as GATE, MPSC, UPSC, and others. Several students have even pursued higher studies abroad, expanding their horizons.

Industry Interaction and Training:

Complementing our academic schedule, our students are required to undergo industrial training at the end of their second and third years during summer vacations. This practice exposes them to real-world environments in reputable industries around us. We're proud to share that organizations like PWD, WRD, ZP, and private industries have welcomed our students warmly. Additionally, our department frequently hosts workshops, training sessions, seminars, expert lectures, and conferences in emerging technological areas.

Dissemination of technical knowledge and expertise for education of students and progress of
industry, society, our country.

We aim at providing quality engineering education tuned with modern scientific and technological
