The mission statement of the Department of Civil Engineering is:

"To impart quality education, ethical values, research abilities and leadership skills which will enable graduates to excel professionally in the field of civil engineering."


Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)  

PEO 1: Draw upon engineering knowledge and skills to serve their respective fields with professional integrity.

PEO 2: Demonstrate professional and personal development through effective communication, teamwork and lifelong learning.

PEO 3: Uphold ethical values in their professional and societal activities.


Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)  

PLO1-Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization (Civil Engineering) to solve complex engineering problems.

PLO2-Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.

PLO3-Design and Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions in the domain of Civil Engineering for complex engineering problems, design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations. They should be able to critically evaluate design choices, alternate assumptions, approaches and tradeoffs related to engineering problem solving.

PLO4-Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.

PLO5-Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.

PLO6-The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.

PLO7-Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.

PLO8-Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.

PLO9-Individual and Team Work: An ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings.

PLO10-Communication: An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex 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.

PLO11-Project Management: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.

PLO12- Lifelong Learning: An ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
