Department / Welcome to Civil Engineering Departments


Civil engineering department has established in the year of 2009 offering Under Graduate course in Civil Engineering with an intake of 60 students. At present, the strength of the department is more than 160 students. The department has well qualified, well experienced and dedicated faculty members and lab technicians. The Department has state-of-art laboratories and modern infrastructure. The academic activities of the Department emphasizes deep understanding of fundamental principles, development of creative ability to handle the challenges of Civil Engineering, and the analytical ability to solve problems which are interdisciplinary in nature. The Department also encourages its students to engage in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, essential for development, nurturing of team spirit, and developing organizational skills.

The faculty members of the department are involved in high quality research and consultancy activities, and they continue to enjoy academic leadership role in the country.

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 sciences 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 is the broadest of the engineering fields. Civil engineering focuses on the infrastructure of the world which include Water Works, Sewers, Dams, Power Plants, Transmission Towers/ Lines, Railroads, Highways, Bridges, Tunnels, Irrigation Canals, River Navigation, Shipping Canals, Traffic Control, Mass Transit, Airport Runways, Terminals, Industrial Plant Buildings, Skycrapers, etc. Among the important subdivision of the field are construction engineering, irrigation engineering, transportation engineering, soils and foundation engineering, geodetic engineering , hydraulic engineering, and coastal and ocean engineering.


The Civil Engineering Offers an excellent blend of research and practice oriented academic programmes. The programme objectives include generating competent professionals and keeping pace with the technological advancements through focused R&D. Currently, it offers the following programmes:

The department has a committed, highly experienced and motivated team of faculty members. The department of Civil Engineering contains the following laboratories

  • Survey lab
  • Computer Aided Drafting lab
  • Strength of Materials lab
  • Concrete & Highway Engineering lab
  • Soil Mechanics lab
  • Environmental Engineering lab

Survey Lab

  • The purpose of conducting this lab, the student will posses knowledge about survey field techniques, also they would have acquired practical knowledge on handling basic survey instruments including leveling and development of contour map of given area.
  • The students have adequate knowledge to carry out triangulation and astronomical surveying including general field marking for various engineering projects and curves setting.

Computer Aided Drafting Lab

  • The aim of this lab is to expose the students to able to draft on computer building drawings (Plan, elevation and sectional views) in accordance with development and control rules satisfying orientation and functional requirements.
  • The main objective of this lab is at the end of the course the student acquires hands on experience in design and preparation of structural drawings for concrete / steel structures normally encountered in Civil Engineering practice.

Strength Of Materials Lab

  • The aim of this lab is to expose the students to able to testing the different material under the action various forces and determination of their characteristics experimentally

Concrete & Highway Engineering Lab

  • The main objective of this lab is to learn the principles and procedures of testing concrete & highway material and get hand on experience by conducting the test and evolving inferences.

Soil Mechanics Lab

  • The importance of conducting this lab was the student attains adequate knowledge in assessing both physical and engineering behavior of soils through laboratory testing procedures
  • Students know the techniques to determine index properties and engineering properties such as shear strength, compressibility and permeability by conducting appropriate tests.

Environmental Engineering Lab

  • The main aim of this lab is to give an exposure to the students in the aspects of identification of various characteristics of drinking water and municipal sewage.
  • The main objective of this lab is to give practical knowledge to students in the field of environmental engineering. Students will be studied the water and sewage characters like pH and turbidity, hardness, iron and fluoride content of drinking water, required chlorine dosage for drinking water, nitrogen and sulphate level in sewage, different types of solids in sewage water and chemical and biological oxygen demand in municipal sewage water.
  • This lab will give good knowledge about sampling techniques, different physical, chemical and biological analysis in drinking water and municipal sewage.



The Department of Civil Engineering of Tagore Institute of Engineering and Technology, Deviyarkurichi, near Attur conducted "LIVICANS-12, a National Level Technical Symposium on 29.02.2012. Dr. P. Perumal, H.O.D, GCE, Salem, who was the chief guest. He shared his ideas about future oriented development in civil engineering and various exams for higher studies and he motivated the students.

E.D Viswanath CRE-A Engineer, Salem, who was the guest of honour. He explained design of steel structures in detail. Then we conducted several events like, paper presentation, poster presentation, Technical quiz, code cracking, computer surveyor, Modeling, CADD modeling. More than 50 students from various colleges participated and presented 25 papers.


Department of Civil Engineering was conducting Association Inaugural Function on 17.08.2013. The Chief Guest was Dr.Sankaran Rajendran, Assistant Professor, Department of Earth Sciences, College of Science, and Sultan Qaboos University.
