M.E.-Structural Engineering 24

The Department of Civil Engineering offers undergraduate program in Civil Engineering since 2009.

The Department of Civil Engineering seeks to provide an excellent environment in which students and faculty are engaged in a comprehensive up-to-date education process of the highest quality in all aspects of computing. The mission of the department is to produce the next generation of Civil Engineers. The Department strives to achieve its mission by being student centered, community engaged, and committed to academic excellence. The Department of Civil Engineering offers a variety of ways to concentrate in this field at the undergraduate level as well as Post Graduate Level. We have Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) program Civil and Master Of Engineering (M.E) in Structural Engineering.

Objectives

  • To prepare a students to be practicing civil engineers
  • To prepare a students to be effective communicators
  • To make a students good team players and leaders.
  • To be effective researchers who can gather and synthesize information and data as needed to accomplish tasks
  • To be good engineering citizens who are ethical and aware of the social, economic, and environmental impact of engineering solutions.
  • To be engineering professionals who are licensed, seek continuing education, participate in professional societies, and perform public service.

Infrastructure

The department's space is designed for flexibility and to allow easy further infrastructure expansion. There is ample space for laboratories and classrooms to support teaching and group interactions.

Laboratory experiments are used throughout the courses to consolidate and illustrate the material taught in lectures. There is a large laboratory devoted entirely to undergraduate experiments.

The department of civil engineering has well equipped laboratories like geotechnical engineering , transportation, structural engineering ,hydrology, environmental ,surveying , concrete technology .

The departments have also models rooms for building construction, irrigation, engineering geology, and transportation lab for better understanding to students.

Activity

We have arranged a seminar on “Production and Application of White Cement” for our civil engineering students which is conducted by Birla White Cement.

We have also arranged field visit of Sardar Sarovar Dam , Dharoi Dam, Aadi cement factory for better understanding of subjects topics.

For better understanding of therotical aspect we civil department conducts the industrial visits related to the subject in every semester. To give more practical exposure of what we taught in the class we have arranged industrial visits for Civil Engineering students to Adani Port Sardar Sarovar Dam , Dharoi Dam, Aadi cement factory, Gujarat Maritime Board Port (GMBP) at Porbandar and many more.

We have also arranged contour survey project at Ambaji for better understanding of surveying .

Future

Civil engineering is one of the most traditional engineering studies in India. British started very good schools for civil engineering studies and successfully completed some of the best public projects like Ganga Canal and India’s Railway network to name a few.

In the first year of study students will learn about the basic engineering techniques along with mathematics and engineering design. From second year students will be more focused towards core subject studies. Few of the subjects taught in these four years are fluid mechanics, soil mechanics, design of structures, and structural mechanics and water recourse engineering. Students are also partly exposed to subjects like transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, water resources engineering, remote sensing, transportation systems engineering..etc.

A bachelor degree in civil engineering will give good opportunities in industry as India is moving fast forward to infrastructure development and one the same time leave a good space for higher studies at home and abroad like ms in civil engineering. Almost all top universities offer ms in civil engineering and there are good opportunities PhD and research too.
