Welcome from Head of the Department


    Civil Engineering is one of the core engineering disciplines which involves planning, design, construction, maintenance and management of structures or public works, like bridges , roads, canals and water supply systems. The department of Civil Engineering, MSIT comprises of experienced as well as young dedicated faculty members. All the faculty members are highly qualified, having graduated from reputed Government institutes and most of them with additional industrial experience. The department has well equipped laboratories, state of art computer facilities and a perfect ambience for research work. The faculties of the department are involved in regular consultancy work. The department has highly experienced technical assistants with industrial experience. The setting up of Student Chapters of the Institution of Engineers(India) and the Institution of Civil Engineers has further motivated the undergraduate students aspiring for research and higher studies.

    The department takes care of the overall development of the students by weekly mentoring system which help them to become a good human being and a responsible civil engineer. Based on industrial requirement, beyond curriculum courses are delivered through extensive assignment, project works etc. Our department encourages students to attend seminars, conferences and regular entrepreneurship programs. Students are also encouraged to take up research based projects and publish their works conference and journal papers. Students are provided guidance to appear for GATE and other competitive examinations like IES, WBPSC, etc. Many students of our department have participated in national technical events organized by different colleges and won prizes.

    The alumni of this department are well placed in academia, multinationals and in government and private sector. We have an Alumni Committee, comprising of alumni, placed in reputed companies like L&T, Simplex, SPCL, GDCL, Fluor Daniel etc. or involved in research works in reputed National & International universities, IITs and IISCs. This alumni committee provides unique opportunities for aspiring students by sharing their skills and experiences. We have recently applied for NBA accreditation of our undergraduate program.We try our best to produce responsible civil engineers with good ethics, to serve our nation and across the entire world.
