About Department

The Department of Civil Engineering graduates with advanced teaching-learning techniques and tools available in labs/workshops. It also has NABL accredited state of the art research lab facilities and Industry supported labs for smart city design for postgraduate students and doctoral candidates. Students are not only made experts in technical aspects but also in interpersonal skills, a vital ingredient to excel in the fast-paced world.

Civil Engineering is considered to be the most versatile branch among all the engineering branches. It is the branch with a lot of diversity from geotechnical engineering to structural engineering, environmental to hydraulics, transportation to hydrology; Civil Engineering can be considered as a single largest branch among all the engineering branches.

Civil Engineering in Centurion University is offered in both the campuses at Parlakhemundi and Bhubaneswar. The department has some of the most senior faculty members drawn from retired professors from Orissa and AP. It has also professors who have been Chief Engineers of the state. The pedagogy is a mix of theory and practice. Like all departments, Civil also has about 60% practical component in its curriculum.

The department offers courses at undergraduate level, graduate level (Structural Engineering, Hydraulics and Transportation Engineering). The main areas of research include Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Hydraulics Engineering, Hydrology, GIS and GPS Systems.

Achievements

Construction Planning & Project Management deals with the subjects which are very much essential for a Civil Engineer in field during construction of any structures. After planning and designing of any structure, the most important part of a civil engineer is to look after the quality of the construction and to ensure that the construction is done as per the plan and the design provided. He has to also check that the site investigations are carried out properly so that the structure should be avoided to get collpased.
The Final year students of Computer Science & Information Technology Department has published, Four papers under International Journal of Computing and Technology, in October 2014 Volume 1, Issue 9, ISSN: 2348-6090. The details of the publication are: –
