    Assistant Professor & HOD.


    Civil Engineering is the oldest and broadest discipline of Engineering which maintains the foundation for our modern society by implementing a range of public and private projects to improve the physical infrastructure and environment. The Civil Engineer comprehends and integrates scientific principles with engineering experience to plan, design and construct the modern infrastructure to enhance the quality of life.

    The undergraduate program provides the future technocrats the theoretical knowledge, which is vital to apply the scientific approach to solve modern day problems that are encountered by the Civil Engineers. The UG Civil Engineering degree facilitates the acquaintance of knowledge to work in the widespread areas of civil Engineering like Environmental, Geotechnical, Structural, Transportation etc.

    The Department of Civil Engineering of CIT is committed to inculcate the core competency skills to make the aspiring student strong with theoretical and practical aspects, which makes a graduate to outshine the competition and also to adopt to the challenges of the competitive world. We provide the opportunities to the students to enhances their practical knowledge, so as to bridge the gap between theoretical aspects by offering internships, Site visits, Project works at renowned companies, technical workshops, Student development programmes etc. Join us to become a Civil Engineer, gaining mastery over the subjects and the proficiency to spread the knowledge.


    Career Opportunities

    • The civil engineering career unfolds a great deal of opportunity in different Government Sectors by engaging in all prima construction projects developed by Central and State Government agencies.
    • There are also adequate opportunities in the private sector for civil engineers as a Construction Engineer, Hydraulics Engineer, Structural Engineer, Transportation Engineer and Environmental Engineer etc.
    • Civil engineers can also get employed in armed forces where they can make assertive inputs in fortifying our country.
    • Civil engineers can become successful managers and entrepreneurs by starting up their own engineering consultancy and construction company.
