The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2013. At present, it offers undergraduate programme, B.E. in Civil Engineering with a sanctioned intake of 60 students. The Department broadly covers important fields such as Surveying, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering, Construction Materials and Practices, Environmental Engineering and Transportation Engineering.

The Department has well established modern laboratories to cater to the needs of academic and research activities. It is well equipped with computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software. The Department constantly facilitates students from other departments of the Institute as a gesture of support to their academic, co-curricular and research desires.

The Department has well-qualified and committed faculty members, lab technicians and modern infrastructure in the form of elegant and smart classrooms, spacious laboratories, latest machinery and equipment. Students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to acquire leadership qualities. The Civil Engineering Association – “RIT STRUCTA” has been functioning for the benefit of the students. It serves as a platform for students to make technical presentations, gain knowledge about recent advancements and bring together novel ideas. This Association aims at bridging the gap between the academic and the industry by inviting renowned industrialists and academicians to interact with students. Guest lectures, industrial visits, site visits, etc., are organized and value added courses are conducted on regular basis to ensure that students are conversant with recent developments in the field of Civil Engineering.

The Department encompasses professional societies such as Indian Concrete Institute (ICI), ISTE chapters, which provides students a platform to acquire knowledge in various technical activities. It offers consultancy services in the fields of Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Surveying and Highway Engineering.
