The Civil Engineering department started in the year 1953, offers BE Civil Engineering, ME Structural Engineering since 1963 and PhD programme in Civil Engineering. It also conducts postgraduate programme in Infrastructure Engineering since 2002. The department consists of 20 full-time faculty members out of whom eight are with PhD qualification and the rest are with postgraduate qualification. In addition, one visiting Professor with PhD qualification also augments the department. The fields of specialization of the faculty include Structural Engineering, Geo-Technical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Town-planning, Geology, Remote Sensing, GIS, Construction Project Management and Hydraulics.The department has organized six international conferences, many summer and winter schools, national conferences, seminars, workshops and short-term courses. It has also established a very good industry-institute interaction by offering consultancy and testing for various government and private organizations. It has successfully completed two batches of two-year foreman training programs in Plumbing and Civil Engineering for ETA-ASCON, Dubai. It was also involved in the conduct of B.Tech - Construction Management Programme for IGNOU. Six Students of Worcester Polytechnic Institute carried out Interactive Qualifying Projects in the department under WPI Global Perspective Program (India Project Program).
The department has its own well-equipped computer center, with more than 70 Pentium computers, laserjet printers, color inkjet printers, multimedia kit, scanners, computer workstation, A1 size color plotter and adequate number of UPS. Software packages available in the department in the areas of structural analysis, design and GIS. The laboratories of the department include Materials and structures laboratory, Concrete laboratory, Soil mechanics laboratory, Environmental engineering laboratory, Survey laboratory, Structural dynamics laboratory, remote sensing & GIS laboratory and Computer laboratory. The department received a laboratory enhancement grant of Rupees Twelve lakhs and books worth Rupees one lakh under library grant of NPEEE of IIT, Kanpur during the academic year 2004-05. The National Board of Accreditation has accredited the undergraduate programme and postgraduate programme in Structural Engineering for five years and three years respectively from 2014 and 2017. Subsequently, the accreditation has been extended by one year (till 2021). The college has signed MoU with AIMIL Limited for the training the students and faculty in testing of the materials. Short-term courses, conferences and training programmes are organised by the department with the support of Association of Consulting Civil Engineers (India) (ACCE (I)) and Builders Association of India (BAI).
