About Civil Engineering
The Department of Civil Engineering at our institute plays a pivotal role in shaping a sustainable future. With a focus on infrastructure development, environmental preservation, and community welfare, we equip students with the knowledge and skills to tackle complex engineering challenges.
Our curriculum encompasses a wide range of subjects including structural analysis, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, and construction management. Through practical training, laboratory experiments, and industry collaborations, we prepare students to design and construct safe, efficient, and environmentally conscious infrastructure.
Join us in embracing the Department of Civil Engineering and together, let’s build a better and more sustainable world for generations to come.
HOD Of Civil Engineering
Mr.CH Giri Phani Kumar
Department of Civil Engineering has a local student chapter of Institution of Engineers (India) completely organized and maintained by the students who are members of IEI. This chapter is actively conducting technical events for the students to enhance their communication and presentation skills and also providing a platform to showcase their talents and competencies. A sample list of events includes paper presentations, poster presentations, group discussions, bridge making competition. It also arranges guest lectures by eminent personalities and field visits to students either to industries (like cement or RMC) or construction sites as a supplement to the classroom and laboratory learning.
Students interested in working closely with society & serving the society can choose Civil Engineering.
Providing various amenities & creating required infrastructure for all societal needs forms the prime goal of any Civil Engineer.
The societal needs such as Shelter, Drinking Water & Waste Water Management, Movement of people & goods through various modes of transport such as Roadways, Railways, Airways & Urban Transportation Systems, Management of Water Resources through Dams & Reservoirs are addressed by a Civil Engineer.
Communication, Organizational, Leadership and Decision making skills are very important to civil engineer as every infrastructure projects requires huge man power and team management. Key skills that differentiate a Civil Engineer from others are emotional intelligence and Creativity with societal responsibility.
Tremendous job opportunities await civil engineers every year as infrastructure needs of the state are continuous and ever increasing.
Key job areas for civil engineers can be:
Engineer Incharge positions in Irrigation, Road and Buildings, Panchayati Raj, Rural Water Supply, Municipal Corporations, etc.
Major infrastructure development companies such as L&T, Gammon India, HCC, GMR Infra, Navayuga Engineering Corporation, NCC, LASA, Shapoorji Pallonji Group, Numerous Thermal and Hydel Power Corporations, Medium Level Contractors, etc.
Public Sector Companies
NRSC, Indian Railways (RRB), Survey of India, ONGC, NHPC, NTPC, HPCL, BPCL, BHEL, STEEL PLANT, ISRO, etc.
Civil Engineers have a great chance to start their Entrepreneurial Ventures and Consulting Firms compared to other disciplines given the fact there is a large shortage of quality civil engineers.
Higher Education and Research
Civil engineers also have opportunities for higher education and research, pursuing advanced degrees and conducting research in various civil engineering disciplines.
SVIET – Civil Engineering Department
Infrastructure forms the basis of the economy in the near future. There is a severe shortage of quality civil engineers in every corner of the country in Government and Private Organizations. Every state in the country is gearing up for greater leaps in infrastructure development, opening up numerous opportunities.
Various Government proposals such as Metro Transport in Tier-I and Tier-II cities, Smart Cities Mission, Road Development goals of 292 km of expressways, and the Capital city of Andhra Pradesh Amaravati offer greater chances of employment for a quality civil engineer.
At SVIET, emphasis is given in equal proportions to both classroom knowledge and practical applications. The academic curriculum is designed to meet the expectations of industry and research organizations. The teaching-learning process is designed to enable the students to acquire sound technical and practical knowledge. Add-on courses, in addition to the regular curriculum, provide the students with necessary tools/skills (apart from those in the curriculum) being adopted in the industry.
In addition to add-on courses, Guest Lectures and Field Trips enable students to envision the most recent trends both in the technical and industry spheres. The department also offers consultancy to various Government and Private Organizations that give the students excellent opportunities to work on real-time projects.
Further, Campus Recruitment Training (CRT) programs are conducted on a regular basis to help the students develop general aptitude and communication skills. Special sessions are conducted for students interested in taking competitive examinations (GATE), and Mock Tests are also conducted enabling students to assess their knowledge beforehand.
