Civil Engineering is one of the broadest and oldest of all the engineering disciplines, extending across multi-technological ecosystems. Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life like space satellites and launching facilities, offshore structures, bridges, buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, harbors, water supply system and wastewater treatment plants. A civil engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the project. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills.
The department of Civil Engineering was instituted in the year 2009 with a sanctioned intake of 60 students. The department is headed by Dr. G. MALLIKARJUNA RAO.
The infrastructure available in the department facilitates students to develop their skill and knowledge within the framework of curriculum prescribed by the Vardhaman College of Engineering. The department has the following well-equipped laboratories/workshop:
1. Geotechnical Engineering
2. Basic Material Testing
4. Engineering Geology
5. Computer Aided Design
6. Concrete and Highway Material Testing
8. Environmental Engineering
9. Hydraulics and Hydraulic Machinery
The departmental library has over 400 books and reports of student projects . A departmental computer center with sufficient number of computer systems and Internet connections are emanated. Students of final year make use of this facility for their project works. The students and faculty have unlimited access to this computer center.
The department invites eminent personnel from industry and academia to deliver technical talks on emerging areas for the benefit of our students and staff. The department has included eminent persons from academics and industry in the academic advisory council to shore up transition of knowledge as well as consultancy.
M. Tech (Structural Engineering)
M. Tech in Structural Engineering, a two year full time Postgraduate programme with an intake of 18, duly approved by AICTE, was pioneered in the year 2013-14.
