Civil Engineering is an old age branch of engineering originated from the day Civilization has started. Civil engineering is an exciting profession because at the end of the day you can see the results of your work, whether this is a completed bridge, a high-rise building, a subway station, or a hydroelectric dam.
The main objectives are to utilize the available natural resources effectively to develop the nation from different perspective so as to satisfy the needs of modern civilization and to compete with the global challenges.
Civil engineering has expanded from huts made-up of mud to Taj Mahal. As civilization matured it simultaneously led to the development of Bigger, Better and Diverse Structures. From Cave Dwellings human beings have moved on to construct Houses, Palaces, Canals, Dams, Highways and stadiums. This Civilian Structures played a significant role in the development of human race and gave various dimensions to human life.
The built environment encompasses much of what defines modern civilization. Buildings and bridges are often the first constructions that come to mind, as they are the most conspicuous creations of structural engineering; civil engineering's major sub-disciplines are Roads, Railways, Subway systems, and Airports etc. Every time you open a water faucet, you expect water to come out, without thinking that civil engineers made it possible. New York City has one of the world’s most impressive water supply systems, receiving billions of gallons of high-quality water from the Catskills over one hundred miles away. Similarly, not many people seem to worry about what happens to the water after it has served its purposes, but a Civil Engineer will find different ways to utilize it further.
In India things are looking up in the infrastructural sector. There is also great employment opportunity for civil engineers in Public & Private Sectors both at National and International Levels. Civil Engineers can also be self-employed through Consultancies and Constructional activities. Hence there is a wide scope for Civil Engineers.
The Department has grown tremendously over the years and is now recognized as one of the major engineering departments in the country.
The department has developed strong links with the building and construction industry and academic and research, both within and outside the country.
Prof. & HODThe Civil Engineering is a broad field of engineering which involves planning, construction maintenance and management of fixed structures or public works as they are related to earth, water or civilization and their processes.
The Civil Engineering deals with construction and maintenance of buildings, bridges, roads, railways, structures, water supply & sewer, Irrigation, power & environment. Students will learn about flood control, Alternate Building materials, Green buildings, structural health monitoring, Transportation engineering etc. It also teaches safety and fire practices in projects.
The Civil Engineering Department of BITM aims at developing analytical and experimental skills in students to apply in various fields of Civil Engineering using National and International codes. The department also provides an opportunity for students in improving supervision, communication and presentation skills, knowledge of software like Auto CAD, etc. Student visit live projects to gain practical knowledge and understanding of field constraints.
The Civil Department has well qualified teaching faculties with industrial experience who are enthusiastic in imparting the quality teaching to the students. The emphasis is laid on proper understanding of the fundamentals of the subjects through animation, video clips and case studies. It has well equipped laboratories, computational facilities; modern class rooms and provides a good environment for learning. Many senior faculty members are also engaged in research and consultancy projects which benefit the students for active learning. The department also has its own library housing a good number of quality reference books for the benefit of staff and students.The Civil Department is also keen in Water Conservation and improving the efficiency of dams.
