Overview

Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2009, with a vision to establish it as center of excellence in the field of Civil Engineering. Education here prepares students for an exciting career in industry, Governmental jobs, and universities. They also are given platform to form startup companies. The department has well equipped laboratories and our faculty is dedicated to excellence in teaching. It has a fine blend of well experienced faculty and young & dynamic faculty. The Students get an opportunity to work on real life projects to groom them for professional life. There is plenty of opportunity to interact with faculty and to receive individual attention. Students are also engaged in Internship of six months in their sixth semester because of which they become industry ready.

Department offers following specializations
  • Environmental Hydraulics
  • Geo-Environmental Engineering
  • GIS and Surveying Technology
  • Infrastructure Engineering and Management
  • Smart Cities and Urban Analytics
  • Structural Engineering
Department’s ongoing research and consultancy

The department is engaged intensively Water and Wastewater treatment research. Waste reuse is also another area in which few researchers are working. Department has a funding of 5 million Euros under Horizon 2020.

MoU

MoUs are signed with Glass academy of India, Ecosan foundation limited. A MOU with DTH Hydrnet solutions, Kokan Krishi Vidyapeeth and ARAI is under process.

On 6th November, 2019, Prof. Andrew Dainty, Dean of School, Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering, Loughborough University, UK visited SIT. Prof. Andrew Dainty delivered a talk on ‘Safe Civil Engineering in Major Cities -The Thames Tideway Project’

A guest lecture on “Clarity of Thought”, for the upcoming internship semester for our third-year civil was delivered by Mr.Sanket Pai, Leap Ahead Coach Consultant on 9th Oct 2019. The objective of the guest lecture was to have clarity of thought in selecting the career path and overall personality development. The session focused on motivating students to take proper decisions in their life, looking ahead themselves in desired position in their future and plan things accordingly to have balance between personal and professional life.
