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 and buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering. It is traditionally broken into several disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, geophysics, control engineering, structural engineering, biomechanics, nanotechnology, transportation engineering, earth science, atmospheric sciences, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying and construction engineering.
This course aims at producing highly qualified, efficient technicians capable of meeting the requirements of the basic level of the civil engineering field. During the course of study, the student is exposed to various subjects of civil engineering such as planning, drafting (both manual and computer -aided), surveying, estimation & costing, construction technology, basics of highway, railway, bridge, airport, tunnel and harbour engineering. The course also offers adequate exposure to reinforced concrete structures, quality control, material testing, construction management & entrepreneurship, professional practice and office procedures. Students also get a feel of extensive survey, building drawing, irrigation & bridge drawing and structural engineering drawing. Students are also exposed to software like AutoCAD, MS Project & stadd.
At present good placement opportunities are available for diploma holders in the field of Civil Engineering, both in Government & Private Sectors. They can be absorbed as site engineers involved in supervision, draftsman (with computer knowledge), surveyors and personnel in-charge of quality control, estimation work and office procedures. They can establish their own consultancy in the civil engineering and construction fields or become Licensed Class I Contractors.
