BTech Course in Civil Engineering

BTech Course in Civil Engineering:

Civil engineering is the base of the engineering fields. It deals with planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating infrastructures. This course teaches the development of better infrastructural facilities to sustain an eco-friendly environment. Civil engineering course is offered both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. B.Tech. – Civil Engineering is a 4 years undergraduate program which imparts knowledge to the students in mathematics, physics, instrumentation, computers, management and economics – essential requirements for any successful civil engineer. Students gain practical knowledge and experience from field visits to industries, construction sites, dams and irrigation structures, etc.

Our Civil engineering Department focuses on developing the future engineers who can create the outstanding infrastructure of the world including Water works, Dams, Sewers, Transmission Towers, Power Plants, Railroads, Bridges,  Highways, Irrigation Canals, Tunnels, Shipping Canals, Traffic Control, Industrial Plant Buildings, Airport Runways, Terminals, etc.

Following are the best undergraduate courses in civil engineering which are running in SRM University:

Building Technology and Construction Management: Building technology courses helps the students in gaining the skills needed in the construction field. Graduates of this course may work as managers or contractors if they have sufficient construction experience. Students under this course learn the basics of construction drawing, building codes, blueprint reading and construction project management. They learn how to construct walls, floors, roofs, and foundations, as well as other exterior and interior structures.

Environmental Engineering: Environmental engineers work for resolving environmental problems after using the principles of engineering, biology and chemistry. They are involved in efforts to improve waste disposal, recycling, public health, and air and water pollution control and address global issues- climate change, unsafe drinking water, and environmental sustainability.

Water Resources Engineering: It is a specific kind of civil engineering which is involved in the designing of new systems and equipment that help in managing the human water resources. Water Resource Engineer generally creates new equipment, systems to increase the effectiveness of water treatment. They not only design these water management systems, but often inspect the construction and maintenance of these systems as well.

Geo-technical Engineering: Geo-technical engineering is the study of the behavior of soils under the influence of loading forces and soil-water interaction which is applied to the design of foundations, retaining walls, earth dams, clay liners, and Geo-synthetics for waste containment. The Geo-technical engineers are responsible for determining the engineering properties of site soils and their subsequent use in the analytical study of the problem at hand. Now a days the activities of Geo-technical engineers have also involved Geo-environmental engineering. Geo-environmental engineers design strategies for the clean-up of contaminated soils and groundwater and develop management systems for contaminated sites.

Structural Engineering: Structural Engineers faces the challenges of designing structures by developing appropriate combinations of concrete, steel, plastic, timber, and new exotic materials and are involved in planning and designing and visiting project sites to make sure works is done properly.

Transportation Engineering:  Transportation engineers are responsible for planning, designing, building, operating and maintaining the system of transport in order to provide safe, efficient and convenient movement of people and goods.
