Aim of department is to graduate the students who are socially aware and interested in working with people to solve problems and meet challenges in the civil engineering domain of design, construction, research and management, in various disciplines such as transportation, environment, structures and hydropower energy and to make them confidently enter in the world of the civil engineering profession.
Civil Department has various labs namely: -
