“Infrastructure Development”, a measure of the Nation’s Progress, is a manifestation of the oldest and core engineering discipline – CIVIL ENGINEERING. As part of the Nation Building endeavour in this sphere through education, Angadi Institute of Technology and Management established the Department of Civil Engineering to offer under graduate program in the year 2009 under the umbrella of Suresh Angadi Education Foundation. Realizing that post graduate programs would add value to under graduate program in terms of human resources, better infrastructure, upgraded laboratory and library facilities and to cater to the needs of the aspirants to pursue post graduation, M. Tech. program in Wastewater Management, Health and Safety Engineering was introduced in 2014, marking the initiation of integrating research component in our teaching-learning process. The department attained the status of a full fledged recognized Research Centre in Civil Engineering in 2016 under Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi to offer Ph.D. and M.Sc. Engg. (by Research) in the Civil Engineering Sciences. Currently, the Centre offers research opportunities in the domains of structural engineering and environmental engineering. The department has received around 42.8 lakhs as grants from VGST and AICTE. The department is proud to have academically well qualified and professionally experienced faculty with great commitment and dedication to the noble profession.
The department offers Consultancy and Quality Control & Assurance Testing Services to government and private organizations. It is also involved in the third party inspections of civil engineering projects.
The faculty members have published 60+ technical papers in reputed International and National journals; presented papers in several International and National conferences; attended numerous STTP / FDP / Workshops / Symposia / Conferences to hone their skills.
Several students graduated from the portals of Civil Engineering Department have occupied top positions in prestigious organizations across the globe; many of the students passed out from this department are entrepreneurs and professionals.
Vision of the Department
To provide quality education in the field of Civil Engineering and to develop competent engineers with a global perspective.
Mission of the Department
M1: Adopt relevant pedagogical approaches supported by the adequate infrastructure.
M2: Instill ability amongst students to collect data, experiment, analyze, design and interpret the outcomes concerned with the specific domain.
M3: Inculcate professional competence, personal and inter personal skills to groom students to become globally competent.
Courses Offered by the Department
BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (B. E.)
POST GRADUATE (M. TECH.)
Waste Water Management, Health & Safety Engineering
Recognized research centre under Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi for persuing Ph. D. by research in Civil Engineering.
Civil Engineering is a STEM [Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics] field focused on conceptualizing and creating the environments in which mankind live. The department is of the firm conviction that the overall development of the student would ensure better professional prospects and quality life. With this conviction, the department outstretches itself to provide value addition to students along with academics by regularly organizing technical lectures, inspirational talks, cultural events, techno-fests, workshops, seminars, meaningful celebrations of Teachers’ Day and Engineers’ Day, technical tours and field visits etc. under the aegis of Association of Civil Engineering Students. The department adopts outcome based education [OBE] concept and follows Choice Based Credit System [CBCS] in its teaching –learning-evaluation process. The department offers innovative experimental and software based students’ projects, exposing them to the latest developments. Many student projects have been recognized and sponsored by KSCST, Bengaluru and have won awards in the state level Project Exhibition and Competition – SRISTHI. We, at the department of civil engineering, promise to make your stay here prolific for your future endeavors in professional and personal life.
