Programe Overview

Welcome to the Civil Engineering Department in the School of Engineering, Presidency University, Bengaluru.

The department offers the first degree programme with the modular structure and various flexibilities, which include options such as Electives, Industrial Practice components, etc. The curriculum provides a broad-based foundation to the Undergraduates. Students gain experience by enhancing their conceptual knowledge and skills of engineering design, planning, execution and management through varied specialised course work in structures, construction materials, water resources, transportation and utility lifeline systems, environmental engineering and infrastructure management under the guidance of experienced faculty.

Civil Engineering graduates are highly sought after by design firms, engineering consultants, materials manufacturers, and government agencies, in addition to contracting and construction companies. Graduates will have an option to work as project engineers, structural designers, transportation planners, technical sales engineers, engineers at construction site, design researchers and so on. The field remains very popular with a number of industries, not only in construction, but also with government agencies such as roads and transport authorities, electricity and water authorities, and real estate development authorities.

The B. Tech. programme structure meets the requirements of AICTE stated in the Model Curriculum (proposed by AICTE in 2012) and as indicated in the table above.

The courses of FIRST THREE semesters and the overall structure have been approved by the BOS, however the courses of the remaining semesters (FOUR to EIGHT) are yet to be approved.

Courses will be reverse offered as an operational flexibility.

There might be changes in the LTP structure of courses based on the recommendations of BOS and experience of offering the course in the previous occasion.

The electives are indicative only and will be offered depending on the availability of faculty members to teach the courses, minimum 10 students registering for the courses, relevance of the courses to the programme and other requirements.
