School of Engineering & Technology

Civil Engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering which is required to fulfil the necessity of mankind for shelter. Some civil engineering marvels are still present as landmarks of history in front of us. Civil engineers are responsible for development, planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of various construction projects, as well as all the basic utilities. In short, civil engineers provide foundation to other branches of engineering to do their work.

Learning Perspective

During the four years of this course, Civil Engineering students deal with fundamental subjects such as design, development, planning, maintenance and construction of all permanent structures such as irrigation systems, bridges, dams, harbours, canals, railways, airports, roads and streets, water distribution systems, sewage systems and all the buildings, whether used as commercially or residentially in an economic and environment friendly manner. During the course, the university provides hands-on practice in various modern cutting-edge laboratories. Students enhance not only their hardware skills but also in software sections (AUTOCAD, MS project etc.) through seminars and projects in the last semester.

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings, and railways.

Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles for solving the problems of society, and its history is intricately linked to advances in the understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history. Civil Engineering is a wide-ranging profession, including several specialized sub-disciplines, its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields.

Infrastructure Engineering and Construction Management engineering helps the students to learn about construction of the building, townships, roads, bridges and transportation. Infrastructure engineers do this work through designing, proper planning and use of the environment management techniques. The program of Infrastructure engineering produces highly skilled construction and project management engineers. These engineers are well aware of the planning and designing of the project, cost estimation and execution of the project.

  • Tutoring understudies
  • Introducing classes
  • Addressing classes
  • Going to understudy supported exercises
  • Supporting understudy associations

Any one can take direct admission through JNU entrance exam JNU-JEST 2020. And there is a interview also.
