KMEA Engineering College

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in 2008 and has been continuing its glorious journey ever since, being the most dynamic and broadest department. The department. delivers highly professionally skilled and responsible engineers to the society.

The department offers an undergraduate program, B. Tech. in Civil Engineering with an intake of 60 students. The teaching learning process within the department aims at moulding the students into professionals capable of meeting the challenges in the field while upholding the professional ethics. M. Tech in Computer Aided Structural Engineering with an intake of 12 students has been offered since 2012. The master program focuses on imparting advanced knowledge in the field of Structural Engineering. Our department has a full fledged infrastructure system with well equipped laboratories for UG and PG students. The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty members specialized in various disciplines of civil engineering.

Department has a very active Students Association, “Association of Civil Engineers” whose basic objective is to conduct programs which will enhance technical knowledge and social commitment of students. The department has collaborated with various governmental and non-governmental agencies in their projects providing the students with excellent industrial exposure working in real time projects. The Department has signed MOU’s with different industries providing our students with internship opportunities and industrial exposure to our students. The department is in close association with Indian Concrete Institute (ICI) and Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) which helps students to gain practical knowledge by the interaction and association with various industrialists, entrepreneurs, researchers, academicians etc.
