Civil engineers are global leaders in building a better quality of life with clean and green environment.
Provide essential value to our students, advance civil engineering, serve the public good and also create value to our nation.
ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Civil Engineering Department was started in the year 2011 with an intake of 60 students. The department has an eminent faculty team with specialization in Structural Engineering, Soil Mechanics, Environmental Engineering, Irrigation and Water resources, Construction Technology and Transportation Engineering. Our students have excelled in the Anna University exams and are securing Anna University ranks every year.
SOCIETIES AND ASSOCIATIONS
The faculty, technical staff and students have opportunities to associate with the following professional societies whose strong presence in the campus benefit them by giving an extra edge over their counterparts elsewhere in India:
- Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE)
- Indian Concrete Institute (ICI)
There are a number of technical specialties within the realm of Civil Engineering for students to pursue their higher studies. The various fields of Civil Engineering specialization include Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water resources Engineering, Irrigation Management, Earthquake Engineering, Remote Sensing and GIS, Construction Management & Technology and Coastal Engineering.
There are many career paths within this field. Civil Engineers are appointed in State and Central Government Departments like PWD, NHAI and TWAD Boards. Apart from these Government agencies, Civil Engineers are employed in Military Engineering Services as well. Civil Engineers design and oversee the construction and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure such as highways, tunnels, rail systems, airports and water supply and sewage systems.
The job includes analysis – especially in the planning stage – studying survey reports and maps, breaking down construction costs and considering government regulations and potential environmental hazards. Civil engineers also may test soils and building materials, provide cost estimates for equipment and labor, and use software to plan and design systems and structures
There is a huge demand for Civil Engineers in Foreign countries. The most important is that a Civil Engineer can start his own construction company and bid contracts from government and private companies.
