Message for Students

Dear Students,

I take the privilege to welcome you all to the Department of Civil Engineering. The department of Civil Engineering at C. G. Patel Institute of Technology has an excellent infrastructure and state-of-art labs with a teaching faculty of the best kind ensuring quality education. The aim of the department is to impart the students a sound knowledge of the theory of civil engineering subjects with exposure to practical knowledge through laboratories and field study.

Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering and it is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of physically built works like roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings.There are many career paths for civil engineers. Civil engineers are essential in government agencies, private and public sector undertakings to take up various mega projects like metro railway projects, express highway corridors, industrial structures, reservoir projects, flyovers, townships and mega city projects. Today, the world is undergoing vast changes in technological revolution, population growth and environmental concerns. All these changes create unique challenges for civil engineers.

The program through its activities is committed to ensuring that our students are ready to meet the different challenges of tomorrow!

B.Tech Civil Engineering
