B.E | Civil Engineering

Course Overview


What is Civil Engineering?

If you have a slightly creative mind and interested in Construction, Design and Planning, then Civil Engineering is the right choice for you. Civil Engineering has remained as an evergreen career opportunity provider. We Civil Engineers orchestrate the rise of marvellous concrete monuments and structures from mere sketches. We create tangible physical structures such as roads, dams, and even towering skyscrapers that dot the skyline of the 21st century modern cities. We address issues of sustainability by designing basic components of the built environment; energy, water supply and waste treatment. This discipline spans over five areas of specialization namely Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Hydraulics and Environmental Engineering.


Who should study Civil Engineering?

Civil Engineers are in great demand in various fields. Some of them are: cost effective construction which is gaining importance to reach a much wider spectrum of society, development of advanced building materials using Nano-technology to improve sustainability within the Green World, Remote Sensing and GIS that forms the backbone for natural resources management, intelligent transport systems that form our main communication links in urban India and disaster management that is mandatory in response to man-made and natural hazards. All these areas have their foundation in the Civil Engineering discipline, thus making it an evergreen branch for construction and research.

What will I study in this course?

Civil engineers conceive, design, build, supervise and maintain infrastructure projects such as public and private utility buildings, roads and bridges,  water supply and sewage treatment etc.. Preparation of bidding documents, contracts become an integral part of the course.

What are the career opportunities after the completion of this course?/What will I do once I graduate?

CMRIT’s Department of Civil Engineering is driven by experienced and research oriented faculty members who motivate the students to pursue their ambitions and interests. Some of the various organizations that look out for our endowed young aspirants are L&T, Gammon India, Tata Consultancy Engineers, AFCONS Infrastructures, ACC Cements, and Governmental Organizations like ISRO, DRDO. Civil Engineers also have promising careers in different architectural and interior designing organisations, where they can showcase their creativity.  Many excellent job opportunities for Civil Engineers are available in the Middle East countries as well.

Civil Engineering has evolved from a stream focused on construction to one that now emphasises new inter-disciplinary areas of research.

Course Structure

1st Year Common Curriculum:

In the first year of this UG Engineering Course, all students are divided into two groups. One group goes through the Physics Cycle and the remaining go through the Chemistry Cycle. In the first year, students will be taught “Elements of Civil Engineering” and it will be handled by faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering. This subject along with “Engineering Graphics” inculcate enthusiasm and creativity among the young aspiring engineers and form the basis of the Civil Engineering discipline.

The Civil Engineering syllabus is as follows:
