Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all engineering disciplines. The civil engineering program is designed to develop the creative and knowledgeable engineering with strong capability of innovation and management. This branch deals with construction, designing and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment including the works like roads, bridges, dams, canals and buildings.
Civil engineering is the oldest and largest discipline which is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geophysics, geotechnical, geodesy, control engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, atmospheric sciences, earth science, urban engineering, water sources engineering, surveying, construction engineering, quantity surveying and coastal engineering etc.
Civil engineering takes place on all levels in public and private sector from individual owners through to the international organizations.
Department of Civil Engineering at Indo Global CollegeOne of the primary departments of Indo Global College since its inception offers B.Tech civil engineering degree program. Civil Engineering is a challenging field and the civil engineering department at Indo Global College actively promotes curriculum development activity by updating existing courses, developing new courses and preparing the best resource material for teaching.
We at Indo Global College are meeting the ever-changing and growing requirements of industry with the courses combining management, business skills and computers with engineering. The goal of department is to produce the highly qualified technical manpower required by industry, R&D organizations and academic institutions. We also encourage students to take part in extra-curricular activities essential for development, developing organization skills, nurturing of team spirit and inculcating the moral values and positive work culture.
Various departments/Laboratories Our civil engineering department has been planned on modern lines with state of art facilities to be utilized for research and consultancy in addition to training of the students.
