Established in the year 2009, the Department of Civil Engineering has made great strides during the short period of its existence. Under the able stewardship of Prof. Bijaya Kumar Rath, M.E. (IISc), Ph.D (IIT Kanpur), former Professor NIT, Rourkela, the Department has state-of-the-art laboratories and a mix of experienced and young faculty members. While Prof. R.K. Das, from ISRO, Prof. J.K. Pani, former Professor NIT Rourkela, Dr. G.Sridevi and Prof. S.S. Mohanty provide the experience, other young talented faculty members provide the drive to excel. Our faculty members are assigned with various theory subjects prepare course plans using the standard format provided by the institute with emphasis on 'learning' of the students. The instructional or lecture delivery of the faculty will be through a set of Educational Technology / Tools opted by the faculty.
The lectures lay emphasis on the following:
The classroom sessions are expected to be interactive encouraging the students to think independently to promote creativity, yet maintain classroom discipline.
Further, the department conducts industrial visits, conferences, expert talks and advance training programmes on various thrust areas. The department has a Centre for Remote Sensing & GIS that provides specialized training towards its application in natural resource management to students of Civil Engineering. The department also provides training in STAAD.Pro to its students.
The department has a Society of Civil Engineers (SOCE) with all students of the programme as members. The society provides the students a platform to interact with their counterparts from other colleges, leading academicians, industrialists, and professional bodies. The faculty pays personal and individual attention in motivating and moulding young students into qualified professionals and responsible engineers through its well established mentoring system.
