Department of Civil Engineering
The Civil Engineering department was established in 2004. The Department offers course leading to B.Tech degree in Civil Engineering. Initial intake in civil engineering is 30 students. At the undergraduate level (i) Core courses in Physical Sciences, Humanities, Mathematics, Mechanics and Drawing (ii) Departmental Subjects on Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Irrigation Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Surveying and Construction Technology are offered. The department has 09 well equipped laboratories which provide good facilities for routine teaching, field testing, structural designing and research in civil Engineering. The department has its well furnished Computer Center to cater to the needs of the students and staff.


The department has a highly qualified and dedicated faculty which strives to produce competent professionals who are abreast with the latest technology and are equipped with enterprising skills necessary for a designer and a site engineer. The department has adequate trained supporting staff in its various Laboratories.

Survey Camp

Students of civil engineering entering into third year are given practical training of surveying by taking them to survey camp of 3-4 weeks. Duration. Two Survey camps have been successfully completed; First to Dalhousie & Second to Solan.

Departmental infrastructure

Department has state of art infrastructure and laboratories for training students to meetthe needs and requirements of the industry

Survey Lab

The laboratory provides facilities for linear, space and angular measurements in the field in connection with road and building alignment, detailing of infrastructure layout etc. The lab is designed to give the students a thorough grounding on the surveying. Equipments include Theodolite, leveling staff, plane table telescope, Telescopic alidade, planimeter, clinometer, optical square etc.

Environmental Engg Lab
