What is Civil Engineering ?

    Civil engineering, the oldest engineering discipline, deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across. Civil Engineering involves Design, Construction and Maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment encompassing roads, bridges, canals, tunnels, dams, sewage systems, buildings, ports and airports.

    After completing B. Tech in Civil Engineering , a student gets employment opportunities in road projects, building work, consultancy firms, quality testing laboratories or housing societies. Civil engineers are employed by all the major construction projects carried out by the state or central government, railways, private construction companies, military, engineering services, real estate agencies and others.

Why study engineering at PCMT ?

    Civil Engineering course at Pailan College of Management and Technology provides the basic knowledge and the necessary skills required to design, construct and maintain roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings. We follow an enriched syllabus that makes the students skilled with professional expertise. Here the students are taught in a modern way with all types of lab facilities. Students are provided with latest equipments and tools necessary for practical sessions.

    The course focuses on the following sub-disciplines:

  • Structural
  • Water Resources
  • Environmental
  • Construction
  • Transportation
  • Geo - technical
  • Materials
  • Coastal, Municipal and Urban engineering

  • Students of Civil Engineering also learn how to join forces with other professionals in pertinent sectors, like architects, designers, public servants, corporate executives, project managers and others.


PEO (Program Educational Objectives)

  • Analytical Knowledge and Practical Skills: To infill graduates with analytical knowledge so as to enable them to formulate and solve real world problems by providing strong foundation in mathematics, science and engineering and to inculcate practical skills in graduates by providing hands on training in conducting experiments and analysis/interpretation of data.
  • Team Work and Presentation Skills: To produce graduates with good inter-personal skills and competency in communication and presentation to enable them to lead and work in multi disciplinary team environments.
  • Employability/ Higher Education: To prepare students for professional level employment in Government, public or private organizations; and to induce in them strong desire for higher education.
  • Entrepreneurship: To provide ample opportunity to the students to interact with industry/entrepreneurs/ practicing engineers and technocrats so as to get motivated towards development of appropriate technology based on local needs and to promote self employment.
  • Ethics and Social Commitment: Imbibe in graduates the awareness of professional ethics and social commitment towards sustainable development and all round growth of society.

Program outcomes (PO)

  • Engineering knowledge: apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • Problem analysis: identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  • Design/development of solutions: design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigations of complex problems: use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern tool usage: create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and it tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The engineer and society: apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • Environment and sustainability: understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
