Department of Civil Engineering

Department Overview

One of the oldest and classical engineering branches, Civil engineering offers students enhanced knowledge about aspects concerning the real-world physical structures. Students get hands-on exposure on the various nuances, concerning the physical structures, such as highways, flyovers, buildings, dams, bridges, and more. With CMRIT’s expert and trained faculty, students delve deep into these aspects and are involved in actual design, supervision, planning, and maintenance. For practical knowledge, CMRIT offers a state-of-the-art laboratory so that students are equipped with industry standards.

Upon completion of the programme, students get to pursue successful and lucrative careers within highly reputed companies such as Tata Consultancy Engineers, L&T, Salarpuria, Prestige, Gammon India and others.

Apart from these, students also get to make successful careers with major real-estate firms, and even independently. This also triggers the entrepreneurial spirit amongst Civil Engineering graduates.

Accreditation, Approvals and Recognition:

The teaching-learning process of the department is accredited by NBA (National Board
of Accreditation) for three years with effect from July 2020.


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.


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 USPs

  1. The Civil Engineering program offered at CMR aims at the holistic development of the students by nurturing the talents and creativity in the young minds. The budding engineers are encouraged to be student members of Professional Societies like IGBC, ICI and ASCE and upgrade themselves with the recent trends and state of art technology.
  2. The students also go the extra mile by undertaking MOOC certifications and participating in Hackathons.
  3. To facilitate the same, faculty at CMRIT mentors the students and provide the extra support and technical help required.
  4. Mini-projects provided to students enable the students to correlate theory with practical concepts and gain hands-on experience.
  5. Expert lectures, workshops and trainings given to the students on latest trends in the field of Civil Engineering like Geomatics, Machine Learning, BIM modelling equip the students to have multiple opportunities in the field of Civil Engineering.
