About the Department

  • The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2010, and presently it offers Under Graduate programme in Civil Engineering with a student intake of 30 and Post Graduate programme in Structural Engineering with a student intake of 18 (Full Time). The Department has well qualified faculty and supporting staff in areas such as Structures, Geo-technical, Construction & Management, Environmental and Transportation Engineering. Civil Engineering plays a key role in the development of any field of Engineering.
  • This field of Engineering enables the students to learn Planning, Analysis, Design, Construction Methods and Maintenance of Buildings, Roads, Dams, Bridges, etc. The Department has well equipped modern and advanced equipments in the Advanced Structural Engineering Laboratory, Strength of Materials Laboratory, Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory, Survey Laboratory, Environmental Engineering Laboratory, Soil Mechanics Laboratory, Concrete and Highway Engineering Laboratory and Computer Aided Building Drawing Laboratory.

    To produce quality Civil Engineers having domain knowledge embedded with research capability, ethical and moral values, for the welfare of humanity.


    DM 1: To produce knowledge based Civil Engineers by focusing theoretical studies with field orientation.

    DM 2: To engage the students in creating design Solutions for real life problems associated with industry and society.

    DM 3: To inculcate entrepreneurship culture along with professional ethics among the civil engineering students and also promote use of modern tools and techniques for sustainable economic growth.

Dr.S.Kapilan Ph.D. Professor & Head

Welcome to the Civil Engineering Department at ACET

Civil Engineers build the quality life which is one of the world’s most important careers. Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline and core branch that deals with the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as buildings, bridges, roads, dams, canals, etc. Civil Engineering today deals with power plants, railways, structures, water supply, irrigation, natural environment, sewer, flood control, transportation and traffic. In essence, Civil Engineering may be regarded as the profession that makes the world a more agreeable place to live.

The excellent infrastructure, teaching faculty of the best kind ensuring quality education such as interaction among students, parents and staff, along with a Training and Placement Cell ensure a bright future to our students. Thus we are confident that our Engineers will surely emerge as assets not only to this institution and to the organization they belong, but also to the country at large. I congratulate the team of faculty members and the students for their brilliant and original efforts.

I wish all the Students and Faculty a great academic career.
