Civil Engineering

Civil engineering, traditionally one of the broadest of engineering disciplines, expands the limits of possibilities. It encompasses the challenges of complex structural designs, eco-friendly housing, sustainable infrastructures, flood & water management, soil stabilization, construction management, environmental consciousness and more.

Established in 2013 and is the youngest department at BMS Institute of Technology and Management, the Department of Civil Engineering; headed by Dr. Rajesh Gopinath: is defined by its singular strengths, collaborative synergies, and its commitment to excellence. The department offers programs at an Undergraduate level with an AICTE approved intake of 60 and houses excellent laboratories, classrooms, and computing facilities for teaching and research.

Our departmental values of "Building Partnerships" links students, faculty, and industry into a team to provide quality education, research, and development enterprise. The Civil Engineering program provides competitive advantages and prepares student graduates for a rewarding career. Student capacity building is ensured through excellent student internship opportunities, Outstanding and promising Projects, and ICI- student chapter activities. The department promotes student involvement in constructive co-curricular activities like state-level sports, National Service Scheme, social initiative groups and others. Through continuous improvement processes, the department aims at being a pioneer at the frontier of knowledge and innovation in Civil Engineering.
