B. Tech. in Civil Engineering

FETCE 101
Civil

Overview

B Tech programme in Civil Engineering is aimed at producing graduates with critical, analytical, and problem-solving skills, the ability to think independently and out of the box, to pursue a career in Civil Engineering or higher studies. 

Until recently Civil Engineering teaching was limited to planning, analysis, design, and execution of different types of infrastructure like buildings, roads, bridges, dams, and power plants. However, increasing technological sophistication and demand for higher living standards fuelled by economic growth and concerns about environmental impact have changed the scope of the Civil Engineering curriculum. The challenges of today’s Civil Engineering infrastructure are much more complex including reducing carbon footprints, interdependencies between resources, and waste utilization. 

Though the programme is designed for depth in Civil engineering the flexibility in the curriculum exposes the students to the trends in allied topics and also to modern skills like Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning applications in Civil Engineering.

Objective

  • To impart knowledge on Civil Engineering systems and their subsystems 
  • To enhance the understanding of the underlying engineering principles of Civil Engineering systems 
  • To model, simulate and analyze the behavior of Civil Engineering systems to predict and improve their performance 
  • To design and build Civil Engineering systems to meet the specific needs 
  • To impart training on instrumentation and testing of Civil Engineering systems 
  • To train students on commercial software tools to design, model, simulate civil engineering systems 
  • To build and test Civil Engineering systems 
  • To impart training on professional ethics, history, economics, social sciences and interactive skills relevant to professional practice
  • To provide a general perspective on lifelong learning and opportunities for a career in industry, business and commerce

    • Association with Professional bodies like ASTR, ISTE, ACCE
  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor. 

    These mentors offer guidance, support and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query. 

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors.

  • A Semester Abroad

    We offer a program in which students can register a semester in the final year with a partner university, where students can do an internship or a project. 

  • Innovation Centre

    At the Innovation Centre, students team up with faculty members to bring their innovative ideas to life. 

    Ideas are assessed based on their relevance to — and impact on — society. These are then translated into working projects that are entered in national and international competitions, and for registration as patents. 

  • Open Electives

    Students can choose from a multitude of open electives across faculties for credits. These are specially designed courses that offer a basic introduction to holistic development.
