The department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2011 with an intake of 60 students for B.Tech course and in 2013 started M Tech in Structural Engineering with an intake of 18 students, have grown to accommodate more than 400 students undergoing B.Tech and M.Tech programmes.
The department is blessed with highly qualified, dedicated and experienced faculty members.
The department has well equipped laboratories in all the major disciplines like Material testing, Geo-technical, Environmental, Transportation and Surveying.
The department of Civil Engineering at Universal Engineering College offers a 4 year B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree programme in Civil Engineering and a 2 year M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree programme in Structural Engineering and was started in the year 2011. The annual sanctioned intake of B.Tech program in Civil Engineering is 60 and MTech program in Structural Engineering is 18. The department consists of a team of motivated, dedicated and experienced teachers graduated from institutions of good reputation.
The B.Tech curriculum of KTU covers broadly the areas of Civil Engineering, Economics, Life skills and Sustainable Engineering and Core subjects in Civil Engineering are under the categories of Material science and technology, Applied mechanics, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Surveying, Structural analysis and design. The syllabus comprises various theory and laboratory courses under these categories. The theory courses consist of Core courses and Elective courses. Each core theory course has a laboratory component, which provides a balanced mix in the quality of theoretical concepts taught in classrooms and experimental verification of the same. Overall, the undergraduate KTU curriculum in Civil Engineering programme is spread over 8 semesters and designed to have a total of 162 credits.
University also revised the syllabus in 2019 which allows a student to get a minor engineering degree along with BTech for which a student has to collect additional 20 credits through undergoing 4 Subjects in each semester starting from 3rd Semester and doing one mini project in the chosen area.
