Prof. C. Siva Kumar Prasad, HOD-Civil Engineering
The Department of Civil Engineering has a wide array of most modern laboratory equipment that can adequately cater to the varied demands of B.Tech, M.Tech students along with different consultancy and research requirements. The department has state of the art infrastructure facilities. It consists of class rooms with LCD projectors and a dedicated departmental library with a decent collection of books in addition to the College Central Library.
The syllabus prescribed for both B.Tech & M.Tech courses is a fine blend of theoretical knowledge and practical applications. The syllabus is framed as per current developments in the field of Civil Engineering, with a clear focus on bridging the gap between classroom learning and industry demands. The department is strengthened with highly qualified and dedicated faculty members having rich teaching, research and industrial experience.
The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2008 with a modest intake of 60 students. The Department started M.Tech course in Structural Engineering in the year 2013 with an intake of 18 students. Subsequently in the year 2014, the B.Tech intake increased to 120 students. The Department is headed by Prof. C. Siva Kumar Prasad who has more than 7 years of teaching and 8 years of industrial experience.
Through the excellence of its people, the Department of Civil Engineering will be recognized as a leader of its discipline in a manner that exemplifies the traditions of learning, invention and engagement.
