The Department of Civil Engineering is an ever-growing Department with dynamic market requirements and continuously changing tools and technologies catering to disciplinary and inter-disciplinary activities. Since its inception, the Department has successfully bridged the technical gaps through various activities using research, industry and academic alliances.

The Department has active MoUs with:

  • CSIR-Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), Roorkee
  • Eco Carbon Pvt. Ltd., Visakhapatnam
  • Dr Fixit Institute of Structural Protection & Rehabilitation, Mumbai

Under the MoU with CSIR-Central Building Research Institute, selected MTech (CASAD) and BTech (Civil Engineering) final year students are deputed at CBRI for their major project work.

Linkage with the Eco Carbon Private Limited helps in placing MTech (CASAD) students for major projects. Additionally, experts are invited to deliver talks on current technologies.

Department in association with Dr Fixit Institute of Structural Protection & Rehabilitation has organised many workshop and training programmes on seismic repair, retrofitting, and strengthening, for practicing engineers and academician.

Over and above these linkages, the Department has established alliances with research organisations industries and academic institutions.

Department also benefits from the Institute level MoUs and Linkages. (Click here)
