Civil Engineering

History of the Department
The department was functioning in the city campus of Bangalore University at K R Circle until 1974 and was later shifted to Jnana Bharathi Campus. The department has a built-up area of 8800 sq.m. The Department was offering only under graduate courses(B E)in Civil Engineering till 1960 and later started PG courses(M E in Structural Engineering and Geo-technical Engineering ). Now the department offers PG courses in eight different fields of specialization. It is one of the Quality Improvement Programme Departments of the MHRD offering admissions to M E and Ph D programmes for the teachers drawn from AICTE approved engineering colleges.
While the primary task of the faculty is to produce high caliber man power in Civil Engineering to meet the rapidly changing needs of the society, it also strives to achieve eminence in focused areas of research and to realize the economic potential of its R&D capabilities. A nurturing environment has been created to encourage the social, cultural, physical and intellectual developments of the students as well as to sharpen their leadership qualities and interpersonal skills. The alumni of the department have occupied key positions both within India and abroad and have brought laurels to their alma mater.

The UG curriculum strikes a balance between engineering fundamentals and applications and thereby, preparing graduates for both research and professional practice in the Civil Engineering disciplines. From the year 1998, the department has got the academic autonomy and the syllabus of the UG course is designed to meet the requirements of the industrial demand with the orientation towards CAD. Introduction to CAD, applications in Civil Engineering, regular technical visits, project tours and design project works are the features of the course contents.
The department offers Ph.D. degree programmes in all the major fields of specialization in Civil Engineering and also offers two years research programme leading to the degree of M.Sc Engineering by Research.

Starting of diversified courses in thrust areas like Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Civil- Environmental Engineering at the UG level. It also proposes to start courses like Earthquake Technology, CAD, Infrastructure, Transportation Planning and Software for Civil Engineering at the PG level. The department is very ambitious to provide better research facilities with the most modern equipments in all the laboratories and develop itself into a software development centre in the field of Civil Engineering.
