The Department of Civil Engineering (CE) was established in the year 2013 with the approval of AICTE and affiliated to Biju Patnaik University of Technology(BPUT). The Department was started with an intake of 60 number of B-Tech seats approved by BPUT. Now, the department has 6 number of faculty members for theory as well as lab classes out of whom all theory teachers are qualified with M.Tech or Ph.D. degree.
During last one year, the faculty members have exhibited excellent outcome in conducting research and publications in reputed journals.
The students of the department have been encouraged to undergo varieties of learning-beyond-curriculum courses for enhancing their knowledge through different club and professional society activities. These club members are guided by designated members of faculty and meet once in a week to hold discussions on topics of their domain beyond the university curriculum. These clubs act as excellent platform to enrich their knowledge and fortify their skills through involvement in “learn with fun”. The students are actively engaged in innovative thinking and ideation on problems, academic challenges and new domains of knowledge through Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Cell (IEDC) funded by DST, Govt. of India.
The Faculties & Students of the Department acquiring the knowledge in modern trend of engineering survey by GPS & DGPS on special training course. This is the first engineering college in odisha who have given this facility to the students for their skill development and educate beyond syllabus.
The department is running one technical club for the students – Pyramid Club under joint coordinatorship of Prof B.K Misra & Mr. T.K Nayak to focus on recent and upcoming global trend of advances in technology and developments in the field of civil engineering structural work among students and faculty members. The targeted objective of such kind of student involvements is to trigger their innovative idea, boost their creative thinking and broaden their visualisation in domain of application. Recently few student members of the Pyramid Club conducted research work whose outcome was highlighted and published as technical paper in national & international journals. Now, there are two groups of Pyramid Club members are actively working on following projects.
- “Use of Admixture in mix design of concrete to strengthen the strength of concrete”
- “The effective use of glass fiber in ordinary Portland cement concrete as admixture”
