Mission & Vision

Vision of the Department: To establish the department as frontiers by offering quality education in proper perspective to accomplish diversified necessities in the field of Civil Engineering education, research and profession. Mission of the Department: The mission of the Department of Civil Engineering is to optimize an effective teaching learning process to prepare the students equipped with fundamental and effective knowledge base blended with contemporary skills with focus on its relevance to the industrial and real life scenarios so that one can emerge as a successful graduate and poised readily to serve the industry and having a strong foundation of higher studies and research with ethical and human values. The prima‐facie mission of the Department is • To develop qualified and proficient civil engineers having contemporary skills through outcome‐based and self‐learning strategies for the service of the sorority. • To encourage innovative and real world problem oriented research capabilities in the young engineers. • To infuse strong ethical values and good professional behavior, so as to adapt and absorb contemporary changes in the field of engineering profession.

Contemporary skills

To create qualified and proficient technocrats having contemporary skills through outcome-based and self-learning strategies.

Higher studies and research

To encourage innovation-oriented and problem-based research capabilities in the young engineers through higher studies to nurture the progress of the society.

Ethical and human values

To instill strong ethical values and good professional behavior, so as to adapt and absorb emerging changes in the field of engineering profession.

Vission

To sustain in the highly competitive global market, it is mandatory that one should always thrive for excellence. The academic fraternity is no exception in this regard. Engineering education being a professional course, the credibility of an engineering institution is judged primarily by the various performance attributes of its stake holders i.e. the students. In congruence with this philosophy, the vision of the department is to create a platform for quality teaching-learning process where, the students are not only taught various subjects as per framed syllabus, but also exposed to the topic beyond it with an emphasis on blending of knowledge and skill and relevance of a topic or subject with the real-life situation so that one can adapt to the industrial requirements.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO 1:To educate and groom students with sound understanding and knowledge of mathematics, basic sciences and engineering blended with contemporary skills in the areas of Civil Engineering and its associated fields.

PEO 2: To equip students for successful professional careers in Civil Engineering domain of public and private enterprises, and to prepare for PG studies in engineering and allied areas, and to undertake research in different specializations within the domain of Civil Engineering.

PEO 3: To make the students aware of the societal aspects of engineering profession, values of ethical practices in profession, and the importance of team work to function coherently and effectively in multi‐disciplinary framework..
