The Department of Civil Engineering, under the aegis of the School of Engineering, Shiv Nadar University (SNU) was set up with the broad aim to pioneer research as well as to provide dynamic workforce to lead country's infrastructural development. Traditionally, Civil Engineering has been associated with the design, construction and maintenance of physical structures as well as to sustain the natural environment. With Sir Visvesvaraya Mokshagundam setting up the highest benchmarks for the Civil Engineering community in India, the onus to better it rests on the existing and budding civil engineering professionals. To hone the budding engineers, the department is offering wide spectrum of core and elective courses at each level, to inculcate scientific and professional expertise.
The Civil Engineering department has highly skilled faculty with diverse background to nurture the talent of students and for defining new horizons. The undergraduate curriculum is designed to mould students into excellent professionals by exposing them to different fields of civil engineering i.e. Environmental Engineering, Geoinformatics, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Water Resource Engineering and Transportation Engineering. Equipped with the state-of-art laboratory and adequate computational power ensures the all-round development of our students. Realizing the importance of industrial interaction and understanding of practical problems, various workshops and industrial trainings are organized regularly. The students with their vibrant academic background and first-hand industrial experience are also mentored to tackle issues and probable solutions for the problems faced by industry.
The department currently offers the following programs:
- Undergraduate Program
- Doctoral Program
The programs offered are designed to enhance analytical, computational and experimental capabilities of students for enhancement of research aptitude leading to innovative research based projects. Further, Industrial interaction is given due priority to provide first-hand experience of real-life problems. We strongly believe that the interaction with industry experts and the state-of-art research facilities offered by the department will enable us to emerge as a research and consultancy hub in India and abroad.
