Dr. Kanchan Khare -
Ph. D. (IIT Mumbai, India), Professor and Head, Civil Engineering Department Postdoctoral training on Project Based Learning from, University of Aalborg University of Aalborg, Denmark


The Department of Civil Engineering offers B.Tech in Civil Engineering with an intake of 60.

The department aims at imparting a high quality education and producing industry ready professionals in Civil Engineering. To realize this aim, the department has recruited highly qualified and experienced faculty and set up labs which have latest equipment for teaching, demonstration and research. To ensure the relevance and currency of curriculum, professionals from industry and distinguished professors from IITs and other renowned institutions are actively involved in curriculum development, guest lectures and project evaluations. The curriculum also includes multidisciplinary courses aimed at producing professionals with broader domain of knowledge.


The students organized ‘Civil Engineering Startup Showcase '20 for entire day as a part of "Start-up week" under Entrepreneurship course on 20/02/2020. This was a small step towards making students aware of the Startup world to encourage them to start their baby steps to achieve greatest heights in future!
