Department of Civil Engineering


At NCE, the Department of Civil Engineering is spearheaded by a highly experienced Professor and backed by a team of well qualified and experienced faculty members. The Department organizes in periodical intervals and as per the requirement of the course Technical talks by experts from the industry and academia. These talks and interactions benefit the students in a large way. The Department also arranges technical visits which in turn benefit the student and offers him/her a practical knowledge of the course.


To become a highly reputed education and research center preparing globally competent Civil Engineers to meet the current and future challenges.


  • To provide quality education emphasizing on emerging technologies through competent faculty and state-of-the-art resources
  • To foster interaction with industry and institutes of higher learning
  • To encourage research and entrepreneurship
  • To inculcate professional ethics and social responsibilities


The Department of Civil Engineering at NCE offers 4 years (8 Semesters) B.E. course with an intake of 60 students. The department is equipped with all necessary infrastructure and laboratory facilities to conduct the course as per the University prescribed curriculum. The Department of Civil Engineering at NCE is equipped with facilities to undertake Research and Consultancy projects from Government and Private organizations. Many consultancy works like Soil testing, Material Testing like Concrete and Steel, Water analysis have been undertaken. This enables the students to get an exposure to the industry practices. The department association Techcon conducts a number of Co-curricular activities like Workshops, Invited Lectures, Site Visits, Technical Talks by students, Students are encouraged to participate in competitions conducted by various organizations. The department association runs a Wall Magazine where students share information on latest technologies. The department also brings out a News Letter where students and faculty publish articles related to civil engineering and related domains. Every year a Survey Camp is conducted for 10 days as a part of the curriculum where the students learn the techniques of surveying. Results are on the higher side. Most of the eligible students get placed on-campus as well as off-campus. The department strives for all-round development of the students.

PEOs and PSOs

Program Outcomes (POs)


At the end of the B.E program, students are expected to have developed the following outcomes.
