Civil Engineering Department


Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is traditionally broken into a number of sub-disciplines. It is the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering and it is defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. Civil engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal to national governments and in the private sector from individual homeowners to international companies.

The Department of Civil Engineering has been in existence in IEC College of Engineering and Technology since 2008 and has grown into a full-fledged department. The departmental activities embrace Planning, Design, Construction and Management. The Discipline of Civil Engineering offers four years undergraduate B.Tech. Program and two years postgraduate M.Tech program.

This course is approved by AICTE, Ministry of HRD, New Delhi (India) and affiliated to Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam Technical University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh (www.aktu.ac.in) formerly UPTU (Uttar Pradesh Technical University). To build a strong theoretical and practical foundation of Civil Engineering, students are provided deep knowledge in the field of structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation and bridge engineering, water resources and hydraulics, surveying, structural design and drawing, environmental engineering, construction technology and management.

The Department of Civil Engineering includes the following laboratories with modern and advanced equipments and software.

  • Auto Cad Lab
  • Building Material and Construction Testing Lab
  • Building Planning and Drawing Lab
  • Computer Aided Design Lab
  • Engineering Geology Lab
  • Environmental Engineering Lab
