Department Of Civil Engineering

H.P Mahendra Babu
Professor & HOD

Civil Engineering is considered to be one of the most diverse and versatile of the engineering disciplines. Civil Engineering contributes to modern standard of living and almost all products of modern life have contributions from Civil engineers. The Department of Civil Engineering which started in the year 1986 with an intake of 60 students, offers undergraduate programme with emphasis on fundamental theory and practice in Civil Engineering keeping in view the current and continuously changing scenarios in this discipline. The Department has established state-of-art laboratories which can provide opportunities for the students at all levels to get acquainted with the latest developments in various avenues of Civil Engineering. In addition to Teaching and Instruction, the faculty is also engaged in actively guiding student projects with an aim to generate innovative concepts and ideas or apply the existing technologies to new applications. The department is also actively involved in material testing works. We plan to undertake industrial consultancy work and also organize Conferences / Workshop for professional interaction. The faculty members in the department are a blend of experienced seniors with dynamic youngsters. The department makes efforts to continuously enhance teaching-learning environment by using best practices and innovations in pedagogy.
