Department of Civil Engineering

Started in the year 2011, the Department of Civil Engineering at CKCET strives to develop and impart technical knowledge and professional skills required for Civil Engineering practice in students through excellence in teaching and research activities. 

We clearly understand the role played by every civil engineer and their importance in the construction of buildings as buildings mean a lot to many people. Besides high-quality teaching and instruction, several R&D and consultancy projects are carried out to produce highly competent and capable professionals. The Department ensures a dynamic process of learning that emphasizes open-ended design, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.


To be a Competent department known for intellectual expertise and be respected as influential leaders


  1. Encourage the students to use creative investigation strategies through Invest in Yourself (IIY) technique.
  2. Motivating students to embark on entrepreneurial ventures with actively engaging to address societal challenges.

Quality Policy

The Department is committed to providing quality education through well-trained faculty members and help students excel in their domains through continual improvement and campus placements. Short term courses are organized from time to time to enhance knowledge and skills of both students and faculty members in their respective field of interest.


Graduates of the programme B E Civil Engineering will

  2. Become consultants on complex real life Civil Engineering problems related to Infrastructure development especially housing, construction, water supply, sewerage, transport, spatial planning.
  3. Become entrepreneurs and develop processes and technologies to meet desired infrastructure needs of society and formulate solutions that are technically sound, Economically feasible, and socially acceptable.
  4. Perform investigation for solving Civil Engineering problems by conducting research using modern equipment and software tools.
  5. Function in multi-disciplinary teams and advocate policies, systems, processes and equipment to support civil engineering


  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 analyse 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.
