Civil Engineering is one of the oldest branches of Engineering because it deals with the day to day  necessities of life  and provides for   physical infrastructure of our modern society. Civil Engineers are concerned with all types of structures including dams, bridges, pipelines, roads, towers and buildings, transport systems, the design and management of our gas and water supply, sewerage systems, harbors, airports and railways.

  • To design, planning, managing and  supervise the construction of roads, pavements, hill roads , road drainage system, pipelines,  towers and buildings, dams, power stations for electricity, embankments, construction of canals, head works, river training works, cross drainage works, regulatory and other Civil Engineering structures which should be  safe, economical and environmentally-sound
  •     Includes the jobs of detailed surveying, plotting of survey data, preparation of survey maps .
  •     To supervise operations involving proportioning, mixing, transporting, placing, compacting, finishing and curing of concrete.
  •     Construction of water supply and providing portable water.
  •     Collection and disposal of waste solids and liquids , sewage treatment works
  •     Preventing water logging and Irrigation works by tube wells.
  •     To supervise fabrication and erection of steel structures.
  •     To design simple steel structural elements.
  •     Make changes in design depending upon availability of materials.
  •     To read and interpret structural drawings of different elements.
