Welcome to Deparment of Civil Engineering

What is Civil Engineering ? 
Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his or her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across.  The built environment encompasses much of what defines modern civilization. Buildings and bridges are often the first constructions that come to mind, as they are the most conspicuous creations of structural engineering, one of civil engineering major sub-disciplines.

Roads, railroads, subway systems, and airports are designed by transportation engineers, another category of civil engineering. And then there are the less visible creations of civil engineers. Every time you open a water faucet, you expect water to come out, without thinking that civil engineers made it possible. New York City has one of the world’s most impressive water supply systems, receiving billions of gallons of high-quality water from the Catskills over one hundred miles away. Similarly, not many people seem to worry about what happens to the water after it has served its purposes. The old civil engineering discipline of sanitary engineering has evolved into modern environmental engineering of such significance that most academic departments have changed their names to civil and environmental engineering. 

Civil Engineering Department @ Madhav :

The Civil Engineering Dept at Madhav University is one of the largest in terms of faculty, students, and activities, continues to lead and expand its activities in various directions. Experimental and computational facilities are being continuously upgraded. Industry interaction has been increased with several postgraduate courses being offered to industry participants, and many students working in industry-sponsored projects. 

The faculty members have been engaged in research in all the classical areas of Civil Engineering and upcoming areas too. The academic activities are supported by 12 laboratories. The Department has decided recently to focus major research efforts in the different areas of Civil Engineering.The department is very well equipped with computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software.

          Careers in Civil Engineering : 

Would you like to make the world safer and cleaner? Civil engineers make sure people have safe places to live and work. They provide clean drinking water and find ways to reuse garbage, for example.

 Civil engineering has five specialties:  

  1. Environmental engineers remove contaminants from water, reduce non-hazardous solid waste volumes, eliminate pollutants from the air and develop groundwater supplies.
  2. Geotechnical engineers develop projects below ground and determine ways to support structures on and in the ground. These engineers perfect mixtures for pavements and other structures by developing methods to stabilize soil conditions.
  3. Materials engineers develop concrete and pavement systems for construction and soil stabilization methods.
  4. Structural engineers face the challenge of designing structures that can withstand gusting winds, extreme temperatures, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other natural forces. They design structures for bridges, buildings, airplanes, and more.
  5. Transportation engineers determine ways to meet the increasing travel needs of people, goods, and materials on land, air, and water                                                                                                                    

      Your future as a Civil Engineer :

As a Civil Engineer, you could be employed by government departments and agencies, municipal authorities, civil engineering contractors, consulting engineers and mining companies. 

Much of the work previously undertaken by government departments is contracted out to consulting engineers. A small proportion of engineers work in research activities and teach in industrial, government and university research establishments. Design, construct, operate and maintain water supply systems and schemes, sewerage systems, transportation systems and large buildings or structures.
