The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2012, with B.Tech in Civil Engineering degree programme with an intake of 60 students. The department focuses on making the students strong in both technical and practical aspects to meet the national and international requirements. The department plans to establish interaction with industry for improving teaching research and consultancy aspects for continuous development of students, faculty and institution. It is a fast growing discipline in tune with high demands for infrastructure growth in particular due to current situation in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The department is well equipped with very good laboratory facilities for developing practical skills and fundamentals of students. The Department has several laboratories catering to the academic, research and consultancy requirements.
