B.Tech. in Civil Engineering(B.Tech.)

Course Duration

8 Semesters
(4 Years)

Eligibility Criteria

Pass in PUC / 10+2 examination with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects and obtained at least 45% marks (40% in case of candidate belonging to SC/ST category) in the above subjects taken together, of any Board recognized by the respective State Governments / Central Government / Union Territories or any other qualification recognized as equivalent thereto.


Decades ago, civil engineering was limited to planning, analysis, design, and construction of buildings and the development of infrastructure. However, due to technological advents, demand for higher living standards in addition to economic growth and concerns about environmental conservation have changed the realm of civil engineering. The challenges of today’s civil engineering infrastructure are much more complex and are interdependent between various resources.

The curriculum adopted by the School of Civil Engineering is designed to meet the modern challenges in this sector, while it aims to bridge the gap between industry and academia. Being industry-application oriented, the School has state-of-the-art classrooms and well-equipped laboratories.

Even though there are many institutions in the country that produce civil engineers, there is an acute shortage of quality Civil Engineers. We produce quality engineers who are effective and efficient in problem-solving and provide economical and sustainable infrastructural solutions.
