The Department of Civil Engineering is blessed with highly qualified and experienced faculty members who are actively involved in outcome based education and research outreach. Though, these are often narrowed by the limitations in acquiring the funding and establishing the latest laboratory facilities. The department aims to boost the visibility by increase in the number of research publications in reputed indexed international journals and by producing patents.

Many of the faculties have already been serving as reviewers of prestigious international and national SCI/ Scopus indexed journals by publishers such as Elsevier, Wiley Inter Science, ASCE, Springer and the faculty aims to increase their visibility in the research community. The Department aims to enhance the collaborative research with foreign universities and industries by entering into MoUs with many prestigious abroad universities and institutes and organizations of national reputation.

The department is also an approved QIP centre. The expertise and infrastructure are available in the following broad areas of Civil Engineering.

Centre for Water Resources and Environmental Management (CWREM) is the research centre functioning in the Department of Civil Engineering since 2016 to undertake research and consultancy in the water and environmental engineering field.
