Civil Engineering Courses

KVCET has taken a strategic initiative of Civil Department in the year 2012. This Program is affiliated to Anna University. The department has faculty members with more than a decade of experience in teaching, research and industrial exposure from various areas in Civil Engineering. The excellent infrastructure, teaching faculty of the best kind ensures quality education along with a Training and Placement Cell ensures a bright future to its students. A well-qualified and dedicated team of staff members provides the necessary strength to the department.

  • To make students face the challenges pertaining to Civil Engineering with confidence.
  • To train students for contributing to environmental preservation and overall sustainable development.
  • To make the students have positive mindset and willingness to use their capabilities for the larger good of the people
  • To enhance research output in quality and quantity and compete with the best institutions in the world
  • To develop world class infrastructural facilities
  • To maintain continuous sprit on creativity and innovation
  • To equip students to go beyond the syllabi and texts to refer research journals and magazines through independent study
  • To train students through periodical in-plant training and industrial visits
  • To motivate students to pursue higher education through competitive examinations
  • To create Centre of Excellence in the emerging areas of Civil Engineering
  • To give a broad education to the students through guest lectures on recent areas of development in the field of Civil Engineering and through educational camps
  • To create an exceptional learning environment through smart digital classrooms

Programme Outcomes (PO):
  • Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge in mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and civil engineering specialization to the solution of complex structural engineering problems.
  • Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and civil engineering disciplines.
  • Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for multifacetedcivilengineering problems and design structural components that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the civil engineering practices.
  • Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the civil engineering practices in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the civilengineering skills.
  • Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communication: Communicate effectively on complexcivil engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Programme Specific Outcome(PSO):
  • Apply the knowledge of environmental aspects with appropriate consideration for efficiency, cost and Quality for sustainable environment.
  • Use modern software tools and appropriate design standards to design structural elements with detailed drawing.
  • Enrich the graduate students to get hands on training on latest equipment / software to be an industry ready engineer.
