    Co-Academic Activities

    Areas of Study

    Civil Engineers are trained in the areas of Surveying, Structural Analysis & Design, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engg. and Environmental Engg. Opportunities for higher studies are also available in allied disciplines such as Coastal and Ocean Engg, Hydraulic Engg, Remote Sensing, Irrigation Engg and Geodetic Engg.

    Industrial Visits

    Industry visits are instrumental in understanding the theoretical concepts learnt in the classrooms. They act as a platform for students to gain first- hand on-site experience and to interact with leading professionals. Industry visits are arranged periodically to centres of academic interest, within and without the State.

    Consultancy Services

    The Dept. undertakes both field and lab consultancy work in the domains of surveying and material testing. Short- term courses in Total Station survey and civil engineering software like STADD, REVIT, AUTOCAD, ANSYS, ABACUS, MATLAB, CSi SAP 2000 and PRIMAVERA are conducted for both students and the public, at moderate rates.

    Clean Kerala Campaign

    ‘Clean Kerala Campaign’, a brainchild of the is an endeavour to spread the awareness for a healthy State. The prevailing waste disposal systems across Kerala are primitive, and demand a complete overhaul. The Campaign envisages a methodical waste management plan for the State, which derives from the concept of self sustainability, exploring the possibilities of bioenergy generation. Projects/ Schemes for collection and disposal of solid waste in the nearby towns of Kanjirapally, Erumely and Erattupetta were monitored on a short-term basis and alternatives were decided. Students of the seventh semester are taking up the design of a waste treatment plant as part of their course project in coherence with the campaign.

    Lab Facilities

    Top-notch laboratory resources are essential for the development of a modern- day technocrat. The Dept. of CE boasts of well -equipped labs, manned by highly competent staff. The laboratories that come under the purview of the Dept are Strength of Materials Lab, Hydraulics Lab, Survey Lab, Geotechnical Engg Lab, Concrete Lab, Computer- Aided Design (CAD) Lab, Structural Engineering Lab and Transportation Engg Lab.


    The first batch of B. Tech students (2001- 05) got 100% placement. Our students are presently working at US Technologies, Galfar, Shilpa Constructions, Kunnel Builders etc.
