About CE Department

Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines and railways. Civil engineering also deals with solutions to problems involving traffic, water supply, sewer, flood control, and the environment. It is one of the broadest and the oldest of the engineering disciplines, extending across many technical specialties. Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles for solving the problems of society, and its history is intricately linked to advances in understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life needs. A civil engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of it.
