Civil Engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering that enhance the standard of living of a nation through infrastructural development. Civil engineering deals with the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance of infrastructure elements such as buildings, highways, bridges, railroads, tunnels, dams, and airports. Civil engineering also deals with the research for the development of innovative technologies that aid in economical and eco-friendly infrastructural development. Civil engineering also deals with solutions to problems involving drinking water supply, sanitation, irrigation & flood control, waste management, and the protection of the environment. A civil engineer not only requires a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to satisfy the needs of modern life.
Department of Civil Engineering was established in 2012 with an intake of 60. In 2013, the intake was increased to 120. It consists of well-qualified, experienced, and dedicated faculty and committed supporting staff. The department is headed by Dr. T. Chinna Venkat Reddy. The departmental major activities include teaching and research, and providing consultancy services to various organizations in the area of Civil Engineering. The faculty continues to strive hard by exploring new frontiers of knowledge, imparting the latest technical knowledge to the students, and conducting high-quality research. The faculty also renders technical advice on live engineering problems to various Government and Private Sector companies throughout the country. The department has produced several engineers who have been working under various government and private organizations.
