The Department of Civil Engineering graduates with advanced teaching-learning techniques and tools available in labs/workshops. It also has NABL accredited state of the art research lab facilities and Industry supported labs for smart city design for postgraduate students and doctoral candidates. Students are not only made experts in technical aspects but also in interpersonal skills, a vital ingredient to excel in the fast-paced world.
Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the engineering branches. It is the branch with a lot of diversity from geotechnical engineering to structural engineering, environmental to hydraulics, transportation to hydrology; Civil Engineering can be considered as a single largest branch among all the engineering branches.
Civil Engineering in Centurion University is offered in both the campuses at Parlakhemundi and Bhubaneswar. The department has some of the most senior faculty members drawn from retired professors from Orissa and AP. It has also professors who have been Chief Engineers of the state. The pedagogy is a mix of theory and practice. Like all departments, Civil also has about 60% practical component in its curriculum.
The department offers courses at undergraduate level, graduate level (Structural Engineering, Hydraulics and Transportation Engineering). The main areas of research include Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Hydraulics Engineering, Hydrology, GIS and GPS Systems.
Civil Department offers BTech in Civil Engineering programme with a domain focused project based learning to students.
- Smart City
- Survey, Design and Construction Management
Students have access to 3D Experience Software of Dassault System to work on real-time project and gain practical experience from field visits to industries, dams and irrigation structures, construction sites, etc. Students also gain training in their field of study through summer internships.
Postgraduate and Doctoral Programme
The department also offers postgraduate programs MTech in Civil Engineering with two specializations in Structural Engineering and Transportation Engineering. Department also takes full-time and part-time Doctoral students for research areas that are being pursued include composite materials, concrete technology, structural systems, concrete bridges, soil-structure interaction, modern construction materials, irrigation water management and remote sensing & GIS etc.
