Department of Civil Engineering

About the Department


The department is one of the pioneer department since the commencement of the C. G. Patel Institute of Technology in 2009. The department has well qualified and fully dedicated faculty members engaged in teaching with the aim of achieving excellence in various fields. The Department actively promotes curriculum development activity by updating existing courses, developing new courses and preparing resource material for teaching. Industry Interaction and academic exchanges with emphasis on R&D are an integral characteristic of our department. The department offers the Diploma in Civil Engineering, Under Graduate program B.Tech in Civil Engineering and Post Graduate program M.Tech in Structural Engineering, Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Apart from these, the department also offers Doctoral program in Civil Engineering.

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!
