The Department of Civil Engineering

The main scope of Civil Engineering or the task of civil engineering is planning, designing, estimating, supervising construction, managing construction, execution, and maintenance of structures like building, roads, bridges, dams, etc. One who designs and maintains works of public utility is known as civil engineer.
There is an excellent scope of job avenues for Civil Engineers in India. Few of them are listed below:

  • Structural Engineers analyze, design, plan, and research structural components and structural systems to achieve design goals and ensure the safety and comfort of users or occupants. Their work takes account mainly of safety, technical, economic and environmental concerns, but they may also consider aesthetic and social factors.

  • Highway Engineers are civil Engineers who plan and help build the thousands of miles of roads built across the country every year. They must take into account future traffic flows, design of highway intersections/interchanges, geometric alignment and design, highway pavement materials and design, structural design of pavement thickness, and pavement maintenance.

  • Geotechnical Engineers plan and design the structures for buildings, roads, embankments, canals and hundreds of other construction projects. Beyond their construction role, the geotechnical engineer will also deal with geological hazards like landslides, soil erosion and, in some extreme conditions, earthquakes.

  • Surveying Engineers perform measurements to determine property boundaries. Their work involves measuring distances, researching land records, and presenting findings. Surveying engineers are typically required to have a bachelor's degree and obtain licensing.

  • Environmental Engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They are involved in efforts to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control. They also address global issues, such as unsafe drinking water, climate change, and environmental sustainability.

  • Construction Engineers Construction Engineering is a professional discipline that deals with the designing, planning, construction and management of infrastructures such as roads, tunnels, bridges, airports, railroads, facilities, buildings, dams, utilities and other projects.


The Department of Civil Engineering

The aim of the Civil Engineering discipline seeks to prepare students to be successful professionals and entrepreneurs who can be recognized for 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


M1: The mission of the Department of Civil Engineering is to inspire the leaders of tomorrow to take on the challenge of creating and sustaining the built environment in our country. Our motto is to provide quality education to prepare nationally competitive undergraduate students for a successful career in civil engineering; to provide advanced skills and knowledge in state-of-the-art research and design in sub-areas of civil engineering for graduate students.

M2: To enable these leaders with fundamental engineering knowledge, a broad set of skills and an inquisitive attitude in the face of uncertain information, as well as ever-changing needs, risks, and constraints – and thus create engineers who successfully adapt and innovate solutions for the built environment.


The Department of Civil Engineering in KEC provides an educational, professional, and intellectual experience to serve the need of Infrastructural development & Built Environment of our country matching with the developed nations of the world.

Facilities and Laboratories


The department of Civil Engineering provides excellent infrastructural facilities with modern furnished classrooms with projectors, seminar hall and more than 8 well equipped laboratories in which except normal testing various research work is performed by students and faculties. Many of our departmental research works are being appreciated and have been selected in various government societies. Some of them have also been selected for MSME etc.
