B. Tech. Civil Engineering


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 sought-after masters programmes, affiliated to Kerala Technological University (KTU) and APJ Abdulkalam Technological University 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 the Institution of Engineers (India) is an acknowledgment of our commitment to keeping high professional standards in education.

Develop Civil Engineers with commendable knowledge, innovative ideas and leadership qualities, who can appropriate technology and contribute efficiently to the industry and research.

HOD’s desk

On behalf of my entire Department, I welcome you to the Department of Civil Engineering. We are one among the only six engineering colleges that offers NBA accredited bachelor’s programme in Civil Engineering. The programme is also accredited by Institute of Engineers India and certified by ISO 9002:2001.

We focus to blend academics with research and innovation. We maintain active research groups in Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Water resources Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Construction Management, Environmental Engineering. This research culture that we maintain has always inspired many of our students who could embrace higher studies in premier institutes of the world.

Qualities of team work and professional ethics are introduced to students by various activities conducted by Professional body chapters ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education), ICI (Indian Concrete Institute), IE (Institute of Engineers), American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE) and Association of Civil Engineering Students (ACES). We ensure personalised mentoring of students. I am supported by a group of well experienced faculty, who cares and guides our students. Each student is assigned with a faculty mentor who guides and cares the student from his time of inception to graduation.

Right from the beginning, we were leaping forward and within these 15 years, the department has grown to a large tree with about 450 on campus undergraduate students, about 100 postgraduate students, 40 faculty, more than fifty thousand square feet of built up area with smart class rooms, Well equipped labs, 2 research labs, more than 50 research publications per year and well placed alumni serving the society.
