About the Department

Civil Engineering is a part of the engineering profession that provides the basic prerequisites of humanity from the beginning of the civilization. It focuses on Planning, Development, Design, Construction and Maintenance of the entire physical structure and infrastructure required for sustainability of the society.

The college took a plunge into this immensely refreshing and challenging field of Civil Engineering with the setting up of the Department at SSMIET during the year 2011. It offers under graduate B.E., Civil Engineering program with an annual intake of 120 students.

The academic activities are so planned in a way to accelerate the understanding of fundamental principles and also to nurture creative ability to handle the challenges in the field of Civil Engineering. It also aims to train the young minds and make them well acquainted with latest technological developments and emerging trends in the realm of Civil Engineering by an unique strategy camped with good practical and industrial exposure. A pool of competent and experienced laboratories specialized in Strength of Materials, Hydraulics, Surveying, Geotechnical, AutoCAD, Environmental Engineering and Concrete& Highway which are all at par with the research labs, are available in the department.
