The Department of Civil Engineering was established at the inception stage of the T.K.M.College of Engineering in the year 1958. At present the department is one of the biggest in this college with more than 50 teaching and supporting staff. The department has an intake of 120 students for B.Tech (Civil Engineering) and 18 students for M.Tech (Structural Engineering & Construction Management).

The department has well equipped labs in all disciplines which caters to the need of the undergraduate and post graduate students. The department has good academic excellence and many a times the students of the department have secured first rank in the University of Kerala. The Alumni of the department has been well placed in several prestigious institutions both inside and outside the country.

The faculty of the department is well qualified and dedicated to the improvement of academic standards and is keen on the overall development of the students. Along with their regular teaching work, the faculty members also attend short term training programmes at this institution and other institutions and regularly update their knowledge. The department has a very efficient advisory system which always keeps very close teacher-parent-student relationship. The Department has been always in the forefront in taking up R&D initiatives and Industrial Consultancy assignments.

The Department is an approved Research Centre of the University of Kerala.

The Department is a recognized QIP centre of the AICTE for training of faculty from other engineering colleges and polytechnics.
