The Department of Civil Engineering of SHIVA INSTITUTE OF ENGG. & TECHNOLOGY, Bilaspur has been set up as an individual Branch during 2009-10. The department is providing undergraduate course in Civil Engineering (CE) with an annual intake of 60 students. Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the engineering branches. It is the branch with lot of diversity right from structural to transportation engineering, environmental to hydrology to hydraulics engineering, geology to geo-technology to earthquake engineering. Civil Engineering can be considered as a single largest branch among all the engineering branches. Many of our alumni hold prestigious positions in leading academic institutions, industries and in government organizations. In order to improve the academic proficiency, faculty members are encouraged to attend Short Term Training Programmes, Staff Development Programmes, Workshops and Seminars. Faculty seminars are scheduled periodically on topics of current interest. The department is assisted by well qualified supporting staff.

  1. To provide quality education and training to our graduates to cope up with international standards.
  2. To conduct regular continuing education and community development programmes.
  3. To provide extension and consultancy services to Government, private, public and industrial sectors.
  4. To excel in Industrial Research and consultancy with appropriate national and International linkages and to maintain highest standards in the field of Civil Engineering.
  5. To be the best-rated departments in India and world in terms of teaching and quality, research contributions, high-end consultancy and academic leadership.

Careers in Civil Engineering: Among all branches of engineering, the range and application of civil engineering is the broadest and the most visible. In fact, the entire infrastructural framework of a modern nation is the creation of civil engineers. The credit of building mighty power plants, dams, airports, sea ports, highways, inland waterways and industrial plants goes to civil engineers. These professionals are also engaged in building an unending array of urban structures such as commercial complexes, skyscrapers, tunnels, bridges, roads, urban rapid transport systems, sports stadiums and so on. As a new Civil Engineer, the individual’s primary responsibility will still be to learn, drawing lessons from the work that they are assigned to do. At the beginning, they will be given a variety of less technically demanding tasks, supporting the work of a senior Civil Engineer. These tasks can include construction site monitoring and more routine analysis or design tasks. The level of responsibility associated with these tasks will be based upon their demonstrated ability. As their ability increases, they will be given assignments that hold a higher level of responsibility. There is a huge demand for civil engineers in India and it is also expected to get boosts as the country gets ready to upgrade its infrastructure with growing economic and political clout in the world. The career opens a lot of opportunities in numerous government departments. Civil engineers are employed in all construction projects carried out by central and state government agencies. There are equally good opportunities in private sector for civil engineers. A major opening for qualified civil engineers is also in armed forces where they can make vital contribution to the protection of the country. Last but not the least you can set up your own engineering consultancy.
