INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT IN CIVIL ENGINEERING​RDCE’21 on 23rd & 24th Dec’21

DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING

The Department of Civil Engineering at the SVKM’s Institute of Technology, Dhule was established in the year 2017. The Department offers four years Bachelors of Technology program in Civil Engineering. The intake capacity is 60 seats for Civil Engineering.

The Department has State of the art testing laboratories, equipped with the latest instruments and equipments which are scrutinized in the laboratories within the department. The laboratories are organized with the revolutionary testing equipments, tools and machineries for various practical assignments. Each lab is equipped with safety measures.

The Department has a blend of experienced and young faculty members who also work as mentors to the equally conscientious, hardworking and intelligent students.

The Degree program is spread over four years with two semesters in each year. The first year of engineering is common to all disciplines. The students get an opportunity to opt for elective subjects from second year onwards, which provides the students with more options to learn and acquire ongoing trends of industry. The curriculum spread over the period of four years makes the student conversant and provides an in depth knowledge.
