Message from The Head of the Department

Civil Engineering takes a place of importance in Engineering Education as it is the oldest stream of engineering. It accommodates all the technological fields in it.
Any nation-building activity i.e. housing buildings, industrial and infrastructural development, road& railway networks, Airports, Dams, irrigation, power, communication, and water supply requires a civil engineer to design and execute them. In addition, the civil engineer has to give physical form to the dreams and aspiration of people fired by imagination, to create large covered spaces for accommodating public gatherings in cultural and sports activities, tall buildings, towers, and bridges, etc. catering to the functionality, aesthetics, symbolism and also human comfort.
In this process, the enormous scientific and technological development in various fields find their resonance in Civil Engineering practice, be in material science, electrical and mechanical systems &services, electronics devices and computer networks and systems. 
The need of the hour is sustainable technologies a Civil Engineer has to incorporate local and energy-efficient materials & building practices in construction and execution.
This enables the Civil Engineers to interact with different streams of Engineering and also participate in any Infrastructural Development projects.
I welcome students to this wonderful field of Civil Engineering and extend my best wishes in their endeavor to be a good Civil Engineer.
