Department of Civil Engineering has consistently performed well in placing its students across different sectors in various industries. Students leverage wide experience created and facilitated by the department. They are encouraged and guided on taking up internships from the second year on a smaller scale with different organizations. In the third year they are exposed to internship project where a student gets a visible opportunity in understanding his / her key professional skills and interpersonal skills. The department organizes workshops, seminars and coordinates visits to industries and startups every semester. There are excellent opportunities for graduating students in varied fields such as smart cities infrastructure, network of highways, waterways, industrial and commercial structures, and “homes for all by 2022". We have long term associations with well-known organizations in Civil Engineering Industries including Bremer, Geodesic, FABS , Hi-Tech engineers.
