Department of Civil Engineering

About the Department

The department of Civil Engineering was started in the year 2008. It offers an under graduate course in Civil Engineering with an intake of 90 students every year. Our main goal is to be the centre of excellence for the development and dissemination of knowledge in Structural Engineering, Construction Engineering and Management, Water Resources and Management, Transportation, Environmental Engineering, Urban Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Remote sensing, GIS and its applications.
We are the Top civil engineering colleges in Coimbatore, Tamilnadu - KCE

The Department has good infrastructure and it is well equipped with state- of- the art laboratory facilities necessary for imparting high quality education and is structured to meet our present day needs of the Civil Engineering field. Students from our department have always proved to be meritorious.The department has well experienced and qualified faculty members who are regularly presenting papers in and national and international conferences and publishing their technical papers in reputed journals.
The department is supported by teaching staff of varied experience and specialization.Our Faculties are life members of various professional bodies such as ‘Indian Concrete Institute’ (ICI), The Institution of Engineers (India) (IE), Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS), Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE), The Institution of Valuers (IOV), International Society for Research and Development (ISRD), International Association of Engineers (IAENG), Indian Academicians and Researchers Association (IARA) etc.,. The department functions with the dual inputs of industry and reputed academic bodies in the state.

The department actively promotes curriculum development activity by updating existing courses, developing new courses and preparing resource material for teaching.The department is also very active in conducting conferences, workshops, seminars, short term training programmes and visits to industries, construction sites and environmental field. Visits are arranged regularly to impart technical education to the students more effectively. Wi-Fi enabled internet facilities are available in the department. Students are motivated to do mini projects to improve their practical knowledge. Students are encouraged to undergo internship under fast track scheme to improve their placement prospects. Soft skill training programmes offered by Karpagam College of Engineering, placement cell and various companies are arranged to enhance their communication and general aptitude skills.

A department higher education cell is effectively functioning to identify the students who are seeking PG admissions and provide proper guidance to crack GATE and TANCET examinations.


To inculcate value based and socially committed knowledge in all sub areas of Civil Engineering on par with global standards, to make our students excel in academics, research and character to suit the needs of the construction industries and to engineer sustainable infrastructure for the future
