The pioneer of all studies is considered as engineering of which Civil engineering is considered as "The mother of Engineering". The Civil Engineering department was established in the year 2001 with the aim for the development of public and private sectors which directly influences the growth of the nation. Post graduate Course M.E (Construction Engineering and Management) was started in the year 2011. The department is recognized as a research centre by Anna University and the (best civil engineering college in Tamil Nadu). Currently, there are 3 research supervisors and around 20 research scholars are pursuing research in diverse fields of Civil Engineering. The department is bestowed with highly qualified faculty members to inculcate best education to the students. The department has excellent experimental and computational facilities to carry out research in intact areas of Civil Engineering. The department also ensures that the students have the opportunity to work with the latest equipment in the laboratories. Our department has produced several university rank holders. Many of our alumni hold prestigious positions in various academic institutions, industrial and government organizations.
Warm greetings from the Department of Civil Engineering at Jerusalem College of Engineering. The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2001 and has grown into a full-fledged department with PG specialization in Construction Management. It is also a Research Centre. For the past 18 years, we have extended our expertise and competence in the core Civil Engineering curriculum and research. The curriculum of our department is science-based Engineering. The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical skills, promote their problem solving skills and innovating new technologies. Our faculty members have excellent academic credentials, publications and serve as a reviewer of national and international journals. The department is striving to foster a strong partnership with the industries in order to meet the market challenges. We welcome you to the Department of Civil Engineering as undergraduate, post graduate or research scholar. I wish all the members of this family to attain great success in future endeavours.
To become center of Excellence that brings out technically competent Civil Engineers with moral and ethical values, inculcating applied research innovation for industrial and societal needs...
Civil engineering is versatile range of positions and projects. A Civil Engineering Career is one the most searched, most discussed and probably the hottest topic in terms of job availability in today’s time in most of the countries around the globe.. In which you can choose your specializations such as structural, environmental, geotechnical and transportation engineering all entitle challenging, constantly changing work environments and require creativity, adaptability, good problem-solving skills and ability to think one’s feet. In wide to spectrum of challenges, the of projects civil engineers can work below the surface delivering tunnels, underground railways and energy and water supplies as well as above the surface creating roads, bridges, stadium, hospitals and many more.
As civil engineer, you can likely to be constantly on the move sharing your time between the site, the office and perhaps even different geographical locations.
Civil engineering course curriculum might differ across colleges, institute and Universities. However, the fundamentals of the programme remain the same. This course deals with the construction, design, and maintenance of structures and works like tunnels, bridges, buildings, canals, waterworks, airports, sewage systems, waterways and canals, highways and railroads, dams and powerhouses, sewage disposal system, water treatment, ports, harbors, docks, etc.
