The Civil Engineering being the oldest branch is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the engineering branches. Civil Engineering is a Professional Engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of structures that are in sync with the environment a few to name bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. It has got a lot of sub-divisions like Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Environmental Science, Transportation, Hydrology and Construction Engineering, etc.

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2010-2011 with an intake of 60 students. This institution is affiliated with Anna University, Chennai. The department has been imparting quality education keeping in mind the recent technological advancement and the industrial requirements. This has been made possible due to qualified and dedicated faculty with rich experience in the diversified streams of Civil Engineering. The department is fully equipped with laboratories and it aims to enrich the student’s knowledge both in theory and practical applications.

We regularly arrange field visits for students to observe the real life scenario of various activities of Civil Engineering. We invite experts from reputed institutions and organizations to share their knowledge and experience with Civil Engineering students to motivate and enlighten them. Students are encouraged to actively participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in reputed institutions all over Tamilnadu. We have plans to conduct certified value added training programmes on Total Station, GPS and software like StaadPro and Revit.The department have actively involved in various research activities and industrial consultancy works with firms and industries in and around Palani.


To be an ideal knowledge resource centre in providing quality education and introduce to advanced technologies in the arena of Civil Engineering and to produce professionally competent Civil Engineers with right attitude towards social responsibility that will help to tackle the growing infrastructure needs of the country.


To educate students with a thorough knowledge in civil engineering fundamentals, the design aspects and their applications and prepare them as professionals for the real world challenges using innovative techniques.

To make the Department a centre of excellence in the field of Civil Engineering, motivate the students for higher education and guide them for research in their area of interest.

To implement more consultancy services to the community in all areas of Civil Engineering.


In the recent years the Engineering institutions in India have changed into outcome based education system which means the performance of any programme is evaluated based on the outcome of the graduates from the institution. Keeping that in mind, the Department have identified Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) and the expected Programme Outcomes (PO) which are listed below.


To provide the students with a strong foundation in the basic Sciences and Mathematics that will assist them to identify and solve real time problems in Civil Engineering.

The students will acquire a broad knowledge in Civil Engineering and be capable of applying their knowledge practically in the industry, advanced research activities and to pursue higher education.

The students will develop the abilities to analyse, design and provide solution by the application of necessary mathematical tools, scientific basics, and fundamental knowledge of Civil Engineering.

The students through self-learning will update themselves and fully aware of recent developments and technologies pertaining to their profession and face the challenging needs of industry.


Graduates will have the ability to apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to solve civil engineering problems and design the civil engineering projects with the latest tools.

Graduates will be well versed in using Indian Standard code of practice to solve all sort of Civil Engineering problems.

Graduates will be capable of preparing building plan and design documents, such as specification, contracts, change orders, construction schedules and other detailed engineering drawings.

Graduate can design and accordingly conduct experiments, further which they can analyse, interpret the data and communicate/present the conceptual solution to the stakeholder.

Graduates will be able to recognize the importance of Civil Engineering professional development by pursuing postgraduate studies or face competitive examinations that offer challenging and rewarding careers.

Graduates can perform economic analysis, quality checks, time/labour management and cost estimates related to design, construction, operations and maintenance of various constructions.

  • List of Laboratories:

    Survey Laboratory

    Surveying is the primary work done in any construction projects. This lab possesses traditional and modern surveying instruments. The students are trained to measure and record the details of an area of a land, the relative positions of the natural and man-made features on the earth’s surface and presenting the information either graphically or numerically.

    The list of available equipment’s are – Electronic Total Station, Theodolite, Dumpy Level, Plain Table, Pocket Stereoscope, Prismatic Compass, Surveyor Compass, Cross Staff, Chain, Tape, Ranging Rod, Levelling Staff and GPS.

    Strength Of Materials Laboratory

    The quality of building materials is tested under environment as per Bureau of Indian Standard. The students are trained to apply loads to various construction materials under different equilibrium conditions. Tests on materials in compression, tension, torsion, bending, and buckling are performed. These conditions and/or constraints are designed to reinforce classroom theory by having the student perform required tests, analyse subsequent data, and present the results in a professionally prepared report

    The list of available equipment’s are – Universal Testing Machine, Torsion Testing Machine, Spring Testing Machine, Rockwell and Brinnel Hardness Testing Machine, Impact Testing Machine, Beam Deflection Apparatus, Le Chatelier apparatus, Vicat Apparatus, Metallurgical Microscope, Dial Gauges and Extensometer

    Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory

    Student will be able to verify the principles and theory studied in Fluid Mechanics and Applied Hydraulic Engineering by conducting experiments

    The list of available equipment’s are – Bernoulli’s Theorem, Open Channel Flow, Venturimeter & Orifice Meter, Reciprocating Pump, Centrifugal pump, Pelton Wheel Turbine, Francis Turbine, Kaplan Turbine, Pitot Tube, Impulse Turbine, Meta Centric Height, Orifice and Mouth Piece Apparatus, Hydraulic Flume

    Cad Laboratory

    Computer Aided Design Lab has thirty five systems exclusively installed with AutoCAD and Structural Analysis and Design STAAD.Pro Software’s Students are introduced to draft the plan, elevation and sectional views of buildings in accordance with development control rules satisfying orientation and functional requirements as per National Building Code. Students acquire hands on experience in design and preparation of structural drawings for concrete / steel structures normally encountered in Civil Engineering practice.

    Soil Mechanics Laboratory
