Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering, among the oldest branches of engineering deals with the development of basic infrastructure required for the sustenance of the society. The department of Civil Engineering at Presidency University offers Bachelor’s Degree (B. Tech.) in Civil Engineering, a postgraduate course (M. Tech.) in Building Construction Technology and Doctarl Programs in Civil Engineering.

The department boasts of a dynamic team of faculty with the right mix of highly experienced and enthusiastic youngsters. The department has several illustrious faculty who have decades of experience in teaching, training and preparing future Civil Engineers. The faculty pool in the department are post-graduates and doctorates from the best universities across India and abroad including the prestigious IITs and NITs. Several faculty in the department have a fair amount of industrial experience which aids in engaging the students in a practical approach towards the subjects.

The department also has a very healthy student faculty interaction, where in there is free exchange of thoughts & knowledge. The faculty advisor system ensures that the growth and progress of each student is personally monitored and nurtured. Grievances/ issues / problems of students are identified in discussion with students and students are counseled to overcome their inhibitions and bring out their best.

The Department has well equipped labs and has built excellent experimental and computational facilities in the field of Soil Mechanics, Environmental Engineering and Concrete Technology and Structural Engineering.

PROGRAM NEEDS for B. Tech. (Civil Engineering)

Creating a sustainable world that provides a safe, secure, healthy, productive, and sustainable life for all people should be a priority for the engineering profession. Civil Engineers have an obligation to meet the basic needs of all humans for water, sanitation, shelter, food and health. Educating engineers to become facilitators of sustainable development, befitting technology, social and economic changes, represents one of the greatest challenges faced by the engineering profession today.

Our B. Tech. Civil engineering curriculum addresses these challenges and provides opportunities for intellectual growth in the context of an engineering discipline, for the attainment of professional competence, and for the development of a sense of the social context of technology, with well-defined educational goals. It also provides higher visibility to a profession that will certainly play a critical role in creating structures and enabling technology to sustain a decent quality of life for current and future generations, especially in the developing world.

To meet the requirement locally and globally, along with our curriculum, graduates are required to emphasize on soft tools to understand the behavior of all the structural components in civil engineering practice and be well-versed with global codal provisions applicable to civil engineering practice.

Program offers many opportunities for budding civil engineers such as:

• To become involved in engineering education through projects in developing communities around the world (including India).

• It provides an innovative way to educate young engineers interested in addressing the problems of developing countries and communities.

• Inspires engineers to embrace the principles of sustainable development, renewable resources management, appropriate technology, and systems thinking

• Prepares engineers for social, economic, and environmental stewardships.

In addition, the program ensures that graduates are equipped with the basic civil engineering core competencies to meet the requirements for the practice of civil engineering at the local, national and global context.

PROGRAM NEEDS for M. Tech. (Building Construction Technology)

The construction industry is undergoing a paradigm shift thanks to the rapid evolution in technology. The use of latest equipment and machinery, smart materials, automation, the advent of 3D printing and the application of software tools for design, drawing as well as management have made construction a challenging and daunting task. The master’s program in Building and Construction Technology aims at equipping graduate students with the requisite knowledge and relevant skills to apply best management practices in carrying out quality construction within the stipulated schedule and budget. The program also exposes them to the updated methods of construction, latest construction equipment, to use construction modelling and management tools. The program provides the inputs for the students in characterizing materials required for a specific construction activity, facilitate them to read the finer aspects of drawings with design detailing. The program provides an overview on risk management, safety and sustainability aspects. This program encourages the graduates to inculcate research attributes and to make them aware about the IPR and research funding agencies at local, national and international level. In addition, the program ensures that graduates are equipped with the building and construction technology core competencies to meet the requirements for the practice in construction industry at the local, national and global context.
