Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering started offering a B.Tech programme in Civil Engineering in the year 2011 with an intake of 60, which was increased to 120 in the year 2013. The B.Tech programme is NBA accredited upto June 2027. M.Tech in Structural Engineering and Construction Management was added in the year 2014 with an intake of 24. A team of qualified faculty with ample experience is the highlight of the Department.

The B.Tech graduate program in Civil Engineering envisages to provide students with a good understanding of Civil Engineering solutions in a global, societal and environmental context, consistent with the principles of sustainable development. The course will make the students capable in identifying, formulating and solving civil engineering problems that meet specified performance, cost, time, safety and other quality needs and objectives with professional and ethical responsibility.

The M.Tech graduate program in Structural Engineering and Construction Management focuses to impart advanced knowledge in the field of Structural Engineering and Construction Management and make them capable of providing solutions with professional and ethical responsibility. The course also gives importance to research based projects and to prepare students for teaching and further research, in addition to making them ready to satisfy current needs of the industry.

Both the programs emphasize on industry and research based projects, which would enhance their skills to become successful professionals for a holistic development.

The department is actively involved in consultancy services in the area of Material Testing and Design.

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2002. Initially, the department was working as a support for other engineering branches and offered courses like Basic Civil Engineering, Engineering Mechanics and Engineering Graphics for the first year students and Strength of Materials (Theory and Laboratory courses) for Mechanical Engineering students.

The Civil Engineering program at FISAT has been a unique and rewarding experience. From the moment you start classes, the professors waste no time in indulging you in the challenging yet interesting curriculum, which consists of a combination of well-developed courses.

I found that, the further I progressed in my studies, everything began to come together and I could see how much I had truly learned since my first day. The Civil Engineering program even helped to provide me with field experience, so I could obtain some exposure to the nature of the outside environment. I am grateful for FISAT, for its thorough curriculum and diligent educators.

It will always be a pleasure to count myself among the FISAT AlumniI. The Department of Civil Engineering with its excellent faculty and infrastructure moulded me into the civil engineer I am today. A group of cordial and competent teachers together with an extensive library helped me excel in my academics. Moreover, multiple Industrial visits, competitions and conferences organised through ACE made sure that learning was not limited to books. Most of all, thanks to the placement cell that helped me begin my career right away

My 4 years in the BTech program at FISAT were among the best years of my life. I am thankful to all the passionate teachers for sharing their knowledge and wisdom. I owe to each one of them for their unconditional support and guidance which they continue even today. Our college campus is one of the most beautiful campuses with ample amount of greenery and good infrastructure and well equipped laboratories. Also, I was lucky enough to have a bunch of best friends for the rest of my life.
