Department of Civil Engineering

Department Overview

The Department of Civil Engineering at CMRIT was established in the year 2011. The Department currently offers a UG programme with an intake of 120. Civil Engineering is one of the core engineering branches where the basic principles of physics, mathematics and material sciences are applied to analyse, design and develop different civil engineering systems. Civil engineers are imperative as far as development of any country is concerned as they are required for the construction of different types of buildings that cater to overall needs of the society that includes the hydraulic structures for efficient water management, urban planning for better connectivity, geo-technical solutions for infrastructure projects, innovative materials for conventional and green constructions, effective solutions for waste management and many more. The department has built strong links with industries, government and non-government organizations to offer quality-engineering services in the form of design, testing and consultancy by utilizing its state-of-the art laboratory facilities.

Accreditation, Approvals and Recognition:
The Department of Civil Engineering is approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and is permanently affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgaum in Karnataka. The teaching-learning process of the department is accredited by NBA (National Board of Accreditation) for three years with effect from July 2017.

 

Vision

To become a preferred centre for excellence in the broad field of civil engineering producing competent professionals with essential attributes to serve the nation and society.

 

Mission

M1: Develop sufficient laboratory facilities capable of providing hands – on experience in diverse fields of civil engineering

M2:Create a teaching staff resource which is a good mix of people with Industrial, academic and R&D background

M3: Develop mutually beneficial collaborations with reputed institutions, industries and R&D labs

M4: Develop partnerships with GOs & NGOs to serve the cause of the technological solutions for the betterment of the society

 

Program Outcomes (POs)

  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
