Overview

The Department of Civil Engineering is one of the oldest departments in the Deccan College of Engineering and Technology and was established in the year 1984 offering B.E. with an intake of 60 students. Besides, the department is offering M.E. in Transportation Engineering from the year 2011 with an intake of 18 students. Presently the department is supported with eighteen members of teaching staff drawn from premier institutions in different specializations. There are three Professors with doctorate qualifications, five Associate Professors and remaining are Assistant Professors having rich teaching experience. The members of faculty of the department are dedicated to the improvement of academic standards and are 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 student relationship. The department has been successful in producing excellent and well-trained graduates. Certain faculty members are approved research supervisors for guiding PhD students of Osmania University and other Universities, besides editorial board members for various referred international journals. The faculty members are always encouraged for pursuing research and publication of technical papers. The faculty members of the department have published more than 100 papers referred in the various national and international journals. The department has organized civil engineering workshops and conferences in the past. The department has well equipped labs in all disciplines which cater to the need of the undergraduate and post graduate students. Many of our alumni hold prestigious positions in leading academic institutions, industry and government in different countries all over the world.

The Department library is having good collection of text books and reference books. Relevant IS codes are made available for the reference of students and teachers. Collection of technical journals, project reports are also available in the library.
