About the Department

The department is one of the pioneering departments since the commencement of the college in 2009. The department has qualified faculty members engaged in teaching with the aim of achieving excellence in various fields. The faculty members are specialized in different disciplines of Civil Engineering. The vision of this department is to shape infrastructure development with social focus. The mission of the department is to

Developing Professional Civil Engineers
Offering Continuing Education
Interacting with Industry with emphasis on R&D

The department offers the Diploma in Civil Engineering, Under Graduate course in Civil Engineering and Post Graduate program in Structural Engineering. At postgraduate level, it independently conducts M.Tech. course in Structural Engineering approved by AICTE. The department has 1 Associate Professor 31 Assistant Professors and 3 teaching assistant. The department has well equipped laboratories:

Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory
Mechanics of solid and Material Testing Laboratory
Concrete Technology Laboratory
Highway Engineering Laboratory
Environmental Engineering Laboratory.

The department has been a pioneer and leader to carry out testing and challenging consultancy work in the fields of Geotechnical and structural engineering. The soil exploration techniques, bearing capacity predictions, structural engineering strength assessments are conducted in testing work approved by All India Council of Technical Education and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd.

The department presents a picture of a small but fully dedicated and developed faculty contributing to all round growth of students, Institute, Industries and Society.

The graduates coming out from the Institute are well prepared with knowledge and technical information, refined with professional touch, are capable of undertaking the Civil Engineering jobs to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

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!
