B.Tech. | Civil Engineering

Programme Overview

What is Civil Engineering?

Civil Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest branch of engineering. Civil Engineering involves the planning, designing, constructing, supervising and maintaining of physical structures such as buildings, highways, flyovers, bridges, dams, water supply systems and more. Civil engineering has a number of subdivisions such as construction engineering, coastal engineering, environmental engineering, earthquake engineering, forensic engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering and transportation engineering. A civil engineer is not only responsible for the planning and construction of physical structures, but is also responsible for supervising the project and ensuring that it is built according to the required scale.

Who should study Civil Engineering?

If your interest lies in designing, building and constructing physical structures such as buildings, civil engineering is the right career option for you. Along with technical knowledge, civil engineering also involves creativity and innovation.

What will I study in this course?

With CMR University ranked among the best universities for civil engineering in India, it aims to bridge the gap between curriculum and industry by organizing lecture series from eminent industry experts. Various civil engineering courses and workshops are conducted by the department to ensure that the students gain maximum exposure in the field. The department collaborates with industries, governmental and non-governmental organisations to provide quality education to its students. It also ensures that the students also have a practical understanding of the subject through its state-of-art laboratory facilities.
What are the career opportunities after the completion of this course?

After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, one can pursue a successful career as a construction manager, geotechnical engineer, environmental engineer, transportation engineer and many more. Some of the most popular organizations that look out for our graduates are L&T, Gammon India, Tata Consultancy Engineers and more.

Students can further enhance their knowledge/skills by obtaining an “Honours” degree, for which they need to earn 20 additional credits. The courses offered for the “Honours” programme are integrated into the programme structure.

Chemistry Lab

The Engineering Chemistry Lab has facilities to conduct experiments to bridge the knowledge on analytical, inorganic and physical chemistry. A highlight of this lab is the use of different chemical indicators to monitor the titrations experiments and various instrumentation facilities are available for the experiments related to electrochemistry. Advanced experiments in utilizing the smart phone as an alternative to Colorimeter is also attempted in our lab which expand the scope of engineering chemistry lab. Also, modified Fenton process is also carried out using iron powder from the prospect of wastewater treatment.

Physics Lab

The Engineering Physics laboratory imparts skill in experimental method to the first year students of B.Tech. Programme. Students are trained to set up the experiments, carry out measurements, analyze the observations, obtain results and draw appropriate conclusions. The laboratory experiments supplement the theory courses so that the students will be in a position to understand the concepts learnt in the theory course.

Assessment and Evaluation

The University follows Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), which provides choice for students to select from the prescribed set of courses and earn credits. Students are awarded grades based on their performance for each courses in a semester and Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), which is a measure of academic performance of a student in a semester. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is used as a measure of overall cumulative performance of a student over all semesters. However, the CGPA is invariably calculated from second semester onwards to facilitate students to know their academic progress.

Every Programme has a prescribed Curriculum or the Scheme of Teaching and Evaluation. It prescribes all the courses/ laboratory/ other requirements for the degree and sets out the nominal sequence semester wise. Curriculum also includes SWAYAM and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), offered by premier institutions. A student desirous of additional exposure to a course, without the rigors of obtaining a good grade, ‘audits’ a course that helps him to have an edge over others in placements.

The evaluation system to assess the student is comprehensive and continuous during the entire period of Semester, by the faculty who is teaching the course. Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) and Semester End Examination (SEE) constitute the major evaluations prescribed for each course, with only those students maintaining a minimum standard in CIE are permitted to appear in SEE of the course. CIE and SEE to carry 50% weightage each, to enable the course to be evaluated for a total of 100 marks, irrespective of its credits.

Before the start of the Academic session of each semester, a faculty may choose for his course Internal Assessment Test and a minimum of two of the following assessment methods with suitable weightage for each: Assignments (Individual and/or Group), Seminars, Quizzes, Group Discussions, Case studies/Case lets, Practical orientation on Design Thinking, Creativity & Innovation, Participatory & Industry-integrated learning, Practical activities / problem solving exercises, Class presentations, Analysis of Industry/Technical/Business Reports, Reports on Guest Lectures / Webinars / Industrial Visits, Industrial / Social / Rural projects, Participation in Seminars/ Academic Events/Symposia, etc. or any other academic activity.

The Semester End Examination for all the courses for which students registered during the semester shall be conducted at the end of each semester. Some of the courses, where the student performance is evaluated through CIE, may not have SEE.

The makeup examination facility shall be available to those students who have appeared and failed in the SEE in one or more courses in a semester.
