Civil Engineering

Civil Engineers convert complex ideas into realities. They help in making innovative structures in the world.”Civilians” are in fact the true nation “builders” Considered a pioneering branch of engineering, Civil Engineering is the art and science of designing the infrastructure for a society. Civil Engineers are involved in every aspect of community infrastructure, housing and constructions.

Civil Engineers are involved in three areas of activity, namely, Designing, Construction and Maintenance. They contribute to design and construction of bridges, tunnels, roads, railways, airways, dams, pipelines and major buildings. In addition, Civil Engineers safeguard the environment against pollution of air, land and water, by implementing proper treatment techniques and managing the natural resources for future generation. If you are fascinated by the great structures and amazed by the way they are built, then a degree in Civil Engg. is a must for you. A Civil Engg. student at GPTC is trained with the skill of building the world with proper attitude, love and enthusiasm and provided with a life style in harmony with environment.

Civil engineering is a wide ranging profession, including several separate specialized sub-disciplines, its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields.

Civil Engineers play a very important role in improving the living standards of a society in the form of structural engineers , transportation engineers, water resource and environmental engineers, hydrologists, geologists and geotechnical experts.

Career Prospects

  • Career opportunities in design, construction and management are immense since the dawn of engineering.
  • Constant demand in the field of water resources, environmental, transportation and structural projects funded by prominent world organizations.
  • Specialized civil engineers are among the most sought-after people in risk assessment and disaster management.

Special Features

  • Consultancy for field survey, material testing and soil testing.
  • Seminars on recent technologies and projects led by specialists.
  • Industrial visits.
  • Technical fests.

Civil Engineers build the world’s infrastructure, which encompasses Railways, Highways, Bridges, Water-works, Skyscrapers, Canals, Wharves, Industrial Buildings, Rapid Transit Systems, Power Plants etc. They deal with the design, construction, maintenance and repair of structures. There are opportunities galore for civil engineers, with new players entering the market and more large-scale developments announced around the globe. The 3 -year Diploma program of the Department is dedicated to delivering technically proficient and ethically responsible engineers to the society.

Areas Of Study

Civil Engineers are trained in the areas of Surveying, Structural Analysis and Design, Geotechnical Engg., Transportation Engg. and Environmental Engg. Opportunities for higher studies are also available in allied disciplines such as Coastal and Ocean Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering, Remote Sensing, Irrigation Engineering and Geodetic Engineering.

Industrial Visits

Industrial visits are instrumental in understanding the theoretical concepts taught in the classrooms. They act as a platform for the students to gain first hand on-site experience and to interact with professionals. Industrial visits are arranged periodically, to centers of academic interest, within and outside the State.

Lab Facilities

Top notch laboratory resources are essential for the development of a modern day technocrat. The Department boasts of well equipped labs, manned by highly competent staff. The various laboratories that come under the purview of the Department of Civil Engineering are Strength of Materials Lab, Hydraulics Lab, Survey Lab, Geotechnical Engineering Lab, Concrete Lab, Computer Aided Design (CAD) Lab etc

Placement

The Civil Engineering students get a 100% placement record every year.
