Institute of Management, Nirma University - Logo



Departments offers BTech programme in Civil Engineering, MTech programme in CASAD (Computer Aided Structural Analysis and Design) & CTM (Construction Technology and Management) and Ph. D. programme. Department focuses on imparting industry relevant training with strong theoretical concepts to students during classroom teaching, laboratory sessions, projects, competitions, value added courses, expert lectures, site visits, practical training, etc. BTech students are placed on construction project sites/consultancy firms/research organisations for entire duration of final semester. MTech students are placed in structural engineering firms/R&D organisations for 6-8 weeks of practical training. The students carry out major project for one year duration at the department/research organisations/industry. This exposure helps the students to acquire the required professional skills.

Department has a team of dedicated faculty having specialisation in diverse areas. Faculty members regularly attend conferences, workshops, short term training programmes and continuing education programmes to strengthen teaching-learning practices.

The department has successfully completed number of research projects funded by national and international funding agencies i.e., SAC-ISRO, ISRO-RESPOND, DST-SERB, GUJCOST, IC-IMPACTS, European Space Agency and Institutions of Engineers (India). The research outcomes of many funded projects results into development of research capabilities of the department.

The department is actively involved in providing diverse consulting services in Civil Engineering. Testing assignment from regional industries is a routine activity accomplished with well-established laboratory set-ups.
Department has established strong network with Professionals, Peers from Academic & Research organisations and Alumnus, who supports various activities like site visits, expert lectures, practical training, projects, placements, consultancy and research.

Undergraduate engineering programmes are designed to prepare graduates to attain the following program outcomes:

  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
