Program Description:

Civil Engineering involves the application of scientific principles and knowledge of mathematics and computers to the planning, analysis, design and construction of all types of private and public works. Reduction of air and water pollution, disposal of hazardous wastes, renewal of our old cities, planning and building of new communities, providing water, power, and high-speed ground transportation systems are the responsibilities of the civil engineer. It is a continual challenge to the civil engineer to provide these services efficiently by the construction of dams, buildings, bridges, tunnels, highways, airports, waterways, and waste handling facilities in harmony with the natural environment. Because of the broad range of demands on the civil engineers services, the undergraduate program is devoted to fundamental principles in mathematics; basic and engineering sciences; the spectrum of civil engineering practice in both analysis and design; and required courses in the humanities and the social sciences, so that engineers may better relate to the world and society they serve.

Professional Outcomes:

The outcomes that students are expected to have attained upon graduation with a bachelor of Technology degree in civil engineering are

  • the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  • the ability to design and conduct experiments
  • the ability to analyze and interpret data
  • the ability to design a system or component to meet desired needs
  • the ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • the ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities
  • the ability to communicate effectively through writing and drawing
  • the ability to communicate effectively through oral presentations
  • an understanding of the impact of engineering on society
  • an understanding of the necessity to engage in life-long learning
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues in civil, environmental and architectural engineering
  • the ability to use modern engineering techniques, skills and tools
  • the ability to explain basic concepts in management, business, public policy and leadership

Work Experience,Internships and Research:

Civil Engineers work in a range of sectors, particularly the construction sector, on buildings of all kinds, transport and communications infrastructure. This includes bridges, roads, tunnels, canals and other large structures. They also work for employers involved in the production, storage and distribution of electricity, gas and water.

Civil Engineers are employed by a wide range of contractors and consultancies and also work in-house for a variety of national and multinational organizations. There are many opportunities in the public sector, with local authorities, government departments and environmental organizations, where engineers are often involved in setting project specifications and drafting tender documents. Opportunities are available with employers both in the UK and overseas.

Internship helps the students to get acquainted to the industry practices and culture. At Vignanís Foundation for Science, Technology and Research University, a six month program of internship is available which can be taken up by the civil engineering student either in the final year 1sem or 2 sem. A lot of realtors, designers and consultants from all over India as well as abroad form the base offering internship to our students.

The research field of this Civil Engineering Department of Vignanís Foundation for Science, Technology and Research University is crucial to the further development of the communityís infrastructure. The huge environmental challenges we are facing present the department with a demanding responsibility in terms of the development and dissemination of new expertise for a sustainable society.

The department conducts basic research as well as project based research in cooperation with our partners in industry and the public sector. We often engage our senior level students, allowing them to work on real-life issues and actual problems as they specialize. Each research initiatives is grounded in one or more of our 6 distinct research groups, which are closely tied to the specializations in our degree programs.
