Civil Engineering


About Department

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings, and railways.The Department of Civil Engineering has been in existence since 1960 and has grown into a full fledged department with specialisations in all the major areas of Civil Engineering. The departmental activities embrace Planning, Design, Construction and Management. The academic program of Three year Diploma in Civil Engineering department at this institutionis some of the best in the Kerala and the country. Apart from conducting academic programs, orientation programs for students and additional course for Total station Surveying are conducted. A number of consultancy works are also being carried out.The department is under Technical Education Department of Kerala. The present student intake of the department is 60.Many of the faculty members have received advanced degrees and/or training from reputed institutions in the country. Many of our alumni hold prestigious positions in leading academic institutions, industry and government in different countries all over the world.
