Department of Civil Engineering was started in the year 1979 with an intake of 40 under "Karnataka University, Dharwad". In the year 1984, the intake was increased to 60 with change in affiliating university as "Gulbarga University, Gulbarga". in the year 1998, the college got affiliated to "Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum". Till date 37 batches of students have passed out from the branch.
To become a school of excellence that brings out Civil Engineers with high technical competencies and promote high-end research to meet the current and future challenges in Civil Engineering
- To offer UG programmes in civil engineering and other skill development courses that add value to student competencies
- To promote quality education, consultancy for industrial and government agencies needs
- To inculcate moral and ethical values among the students
- To impart knowledge with emphasis on the development of leadership qualities in students
- To encourage students to pursue higher education and take competitive exams and various career enhancing courses
- To have regular interaction with industry and offer solutions to their problems
1. Fully experienced and Qualified Faculty.
2. Adequate Infrastructure.
3. Trusted mentorship offered to students.
4. Overall performance of students is good.
5. Consultancy services offered to government & private organisation.
6. Good number of faculty members are resource persons for skill development programme.
1. Entry of students with very low CET ranking.
2. Locality disadvantage- Place backwardness and climatic conditions.
1. Scope for starting new courses.
2. Increase Industry Institute Interaction.
1. Decline in demand for technical education.
2. Employment opportunities are declining in the present scenario.
3. Competition from Government Engineering college with low fee structure, very near to our college.
The Department has 8 laboratories, with more than 25 dual core i3 computer systems connected through LAN. The Department also has WiFi facility. More than 6 license application softwares and many open license application softwares are present.
Reprographic facility is available in the department. All the labs have First Aid facilities along with CCTVs.
