Civil engineering is the oldest and broadest of the engineering fields. Civil engineers build the world’s infrastructure. In doing so, they shape the history of nations around the world. Only by exploring civil engineering’s influence in shaping the world we know today, can we creatively envision the progress of our tomorrows.
Mohandas College of Engineering and Technology is proud to announce the commencement of the B.Tech Degree course in Civil Engineering. The mission of our department is to open the minds of students to knowledge, to instill in the minds of the students the love, the habit and ways of learning and to enable students to take best advantage of their educational opportunities.The Department is determined to ensure that students of all ability levels are well equipped to meet the challenges of work and life and to develop in themselves a sense of social commitment so that they would play a vital role in transforming the society.
The intake at undergraduate level in the Civil Engineering Department during the current academic year (2013-14) is 60. The UG curriculum is broad-based and designed to introduce the students with a wide range of problems encountered by civil engineers. The major subjects dealt with are Surveying, Concrete Technology, Analysis and Design of Structures, Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Water Resources engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering etc. Electives and independently conducted projects are also offered to enable the students to develop additional depth in the areas of specific interest to them.
