Civil Engineering

Welcome to Department of Civil Engineering

What is Civil Engineering ?

Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his or her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across. The built environment encompasses much of what defines modern civilization. Buildings and bridges are often the first constructions that come to mind, as they are the most conspicuous creations of structural engineering, one of civil engineering major sub-disciplines.

Roads, railroads, subway systems, and airports are designed by transportation engineers, another category of civil engineering. And then there are the less visible creations of civil engineers. Every time you open a water faucet, you expect water to come out, without thinking that civil engineers made it possible. New York City has one of the world’s most impressive water supply systems, receiving billions of gallons of high-quality water from the Catskills over one hundred miles away. Similarly, not many people seem to worry about what happens to the water after it has served its purposes. The old civil engineering discipline of sanitary engineering has evolved into modern environmental engineering of such significance that most academic departments have changed their names to civil and environmental engineering.

Civil Engineering Department @ Madhav :

The Civil Engineering Dept at Madhav University is one of the largest in terms of faculty, students, and activities, continues to lead and expand its activities in various directions. Experimental and computational facilities are being continuously upgraded. Industry interaction has been increased with several postgraduate courses being offered to industry participants, and many students working in industry-sponsored projects.

The faculty members have been engaged in research in all the classical areas of Civil Engineering and upcoming areas too. The academic activities are supported by 12 laboratories. The Department has decided recently to focus major research efforts in the different areas of Civil Engineering.The department is very well equipped with computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software.

Careers in Civil Engineering :

Would you like to make the world safer and cleaner? Civil engineers make sure people have safe places to live and work. They provide clean drinking water and find ways to reuse garbage, for example.

Civil engineering has five specialties:
  • Environmental engineers remove contaminants from water, reduce non-hazardous solid waste volumes, eliminate pollutants from the air and develop groundwater supplies.
  • Geotechnical engineers develop projects below ground and determine ways to support structures on and in the ground. These engineers perfect mixtures for pavements and other structures by developing methods to stabilize soil conditions.
  • Materials engineers develop concrete and pavement systems for construction and soil stabilization methods.
  • Structural engineers face the challenge of designing structures that can withstand gusting winds, extreme temperatures, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other natural forces. They design structures for bridges, buildings, airplanes, and more.
  • Transportation engineers determine ways to meet the increasing travel needs of people, goods, and materials on land, air, and water.

About the Department

Civil engineering is one of the oldest and most popular streams in engineering. It focuses on building physical infrastructure like buildings, bridges, towers, highways, rails, roads, tunnels, water and irrigation systems. With increased need for urban planning and infrastructure development today, civil engineering is a field to reckon. This program also allows lateral entry.

The Department of Civil Engineering is working since (2013). Department is running the undergraduate course in Civil Engineering Branch. Subsequently, in year 2015 M. Tech. courses were started in Structural Engineering and Environmental Engineering in addition to Transportation Engineering. The department also started registration of candidates for Ph.D, program from year 2016. The Department of Civil Engineering offers Diploma, B. Tech., M. Tech. and Ph.D. degree programs. Over the years the department has nurtured young minds to produce bright Civil Engineers. Many of our faculty members and students are involved in research activities in various areas of civil engineering. Various lab facilities are also provided to the students. The labs are Structural Engineering Lab, Transportation Engineering Lab, Geotechnical Engineering Lab, Environmental Engineering Lab, Hydraulics Lab, Concrete Lab and Surveying Lab.

Educational Objectives

The program outcomes are the skills and knowledge that a graduate will have during their graduation and also able to apply after graduation. The various program outcomes are as follows: The graduates are able to apply the basic knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering to real life problems. They are able to understand problem identification, formulations, and to conduct experiments, by analysis and interpreting the data. They are trained to practice civil engineering using up to date techniques, skills, and tools as a result of life long learning ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.

The students are well experienced to improve the function effectively in engineering and science field, as well as in members of multidisciplinary teams. The graduates will be able to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability. The graduates are able to improve the function effectively in engineering and science field, as well as in members of multidisciplinary teams.

The graduates are able to make effective communication in oral, written, graphical forms with confidence. Also we expect graduates to achieve the following within four years of graduating: Should demonstrate peer recognized expertise together with the ability to articulate that expertise and use it for contemporary problem solving in the analysis, design, and evaluation of civil engineering projects.
Should demonstrate leadership and initiative to ethically advance professional and organizational goals facilitate the achievements of others, and obtain substantive results.

Educational Outcomes

The civil engineering degree program seeks to prepare students to be successful professionals recognized for their:

  • Critical thinking and problem solving based on a fundamental knowledge of humanities, social sciences, mathematics, science, engineering science and a broad range of civil engineering technical areas;
  • Consideration of global and societal concerns, ethics, and sustainability when making engineering decisions;
  • Leadership and effective communication;
  • Civic engagement and contributions to society; and
  • Pursuit of lifelong learning and professional development.

Courses running under the department

  • Diploma in Civil Engineering: It is a 3-year course which students can pursue after the completion of 10 years of school education. Diploma holders are eligible for lateral entry to the third semester Engineering Courses.
  • B.Tech. (Civil Engineering) : Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Civil Engineering is the 4-year full-time undergraduate course in engineering. Prerequisites for pursuing B.Tech is 10+2 passed with PCM group from the recognized educational board.
  • M.Tech. (Civil Engineering) : With specialization in Structural Engineering Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering Postgraduate course in engineering resulting in the award of a Master of Engineering (M.E.) or Master of Technology (M.Tech) degree. It is a 2-years course that one can pursue after completing a 4-year undergraduate program in engineering (B.Tech).
