About Department

 

OVERVIEW

Department of Civil Engineering took genesis since the inception of MGMCET. The department offers Under Graduate and Post Graduate programmes.. The department aims at producing professionally competent civil engineers to meet current industry requirements with the help of highly qualified, committed faculty members specialized in various disciplines of Civil Engineering.

The department has fully fledged laboratories with adequate research facilities. To bridge the gap between industry and academia, the department has established an active student chapter of Indian Concrete Institute (ICI) and a Civil Engineering Association-SRISHTI. With the aim of keeping the students abreast with the latest trends in the industry, the Civil Engineering Association and ICI student chapter organizes various activities including technical talks, seminars, industrial visits and technical competitions throughout the year.
