Message for Students

Dear Students,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Civil Engineering Department of CGPIT at MALIBA Campus. Our dedicated and committed teachers have been enthusiastically preparing for this College and we all look forward to journeying with you in what will be a very exciting learning tour. We are confident that you will continue to enjoy academic excellence in a respectful and caring environment at Institute.

To become a good professional, the students should be very clear in their ambition and set appropriate goals for themselves .The priorities for the day should be clear in the mind. Proper time management is very essential (with proper time management a student can easily have 2 hours of relaxation per day and read for 4 hours per day). Attendance and internal assessment are two valuable tools to monitor the academic progress of a student. To avoid anxiety and tension before exam one should maintain a good record of attendance and internal assessment. The behaviour of the student in and around the campus should fit the noble profession they have opted for. Talented students in the field of sports and cultural activities should identify themselves with sports and cultural committee of the college. Good hobbies should not be forgotten. Students are expected to observe the dress code of the Institute.
