Department of Civil Engineering was established way back in 2004 when only few colleges were offering Civil Engineering. We offer three programmes, one bachelor and two soughtafter masters programmes, affiliated to Kerala Technological University (KTU)
B.Tech Civil Engineering programme offered by Department is accredited by NBA (National Board of Accreditations) as a recognition of the continuous efforts of Department towards maintaining quality standards in education. Department is one among the only six in Kerala that offers NBA accredited B.Tech. programme in Civil Engineering. Additionally accreditation by Institution of Engineers (India) is an acknowledgment of our commitment in keeping high professional standards in education.
The Masters programme in Geomechanics and Structures covers two main streams of Civil Engineering - Geotechnical Engineering and Structural Engineering. Our department significantly contributed to the development of curriculum of this programme in consultation with eminent academicians from IITs and universities in India as a unique blend of structural and geotechnical streams. Department also offers another Masters programme in Structural Engineering and Construction Management, that alloys two streams of Civil Engineering - Structural Engineering and Construction Management.
We have well experienced faculty - many of them are from Industry, many are consulting engineers, who could well explain the industrial aspects of every content delivered. Today we instill knowledge for about 450 undergraduate students and about 100 post graduate students. Our students always lead the list of examinations with exceptional success rate. More than hundred of our students have cleared GATE/GRE exams till date. We have bagged 12 university ranks. Well placed alumni are our strength, who always give consistent positive inputs to the programmes. Faculty mentor assigned to each student, taking care of all his academic, career and personal growth passionately embracing him through self-conflicting moments is the prime reason for this.
Department is a leading consultant in Civil Engineering problems. Our clients include Indian Railways, Kerala PWD, Cochin Metro, Kerala Forest Department, LSGD, KSEB etc. Faculties draw in students to assist them in consultancy services. This serves as an opportunity for the students to experience practical issues related to industry.
Quality is a never ending journey. Our yearning for quality education exemplified through above academic support units, compounded with feedback from stake holders like students, parents, teachers, professionals and employers, accelerates the Department towards our vision “To be a center of excellence in Civil Engineering Education”
