Department of Civil Engineering
Dr. B. R. Patagundi
Professor & HOD
The Civil Engineering Department is started in the year 2010-11 with an intake of 60 students and later the intake is upgraded to 120 in the year 2014-15, similarly in the same year post graduate course in Structural Engineering started and now department has research center in civil engineering affiliated to VTU. A total of 24 experienced faculty members, support four core specializations (Structural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering) in the department.
UG students are encouraged to take up interdisciplinary projects in various domains and students are placed in reputed companies and various consultancy firms.

Why Civil Engineering in SGBIT..?
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of various structures including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, railways, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings etc.
What will I experience..?
✔It provides more than technical training and teaches sophisticated skills of analysis & problem-solving that apply to any type of engineering, business ventures, manufacturing, management, or even legal practice.
✔The programs nurture you to meet the global competency in industry and academics.
✔The state of art curriculum promotes independent thinking and learning at an individual's pace.
The scope of Civil Engineering ..?
The main scope of civil engineering or the task of civil engineering is planning, designing, estimating, supervising construction, managing construction, execution, and maintenance of structures like building, roads, bridges, dams, etc. • One who designs and maintains works of public utility is known as civil engineer. Civil engineer should have qualities like scientific attitude, imaginative and intuitive approach, He should have good analysis and decision power. He should be able to solve engineering problems, by using mathematical modeling, scientific principles and laboratory techniques using computer and information technology. He should be able to use operation research techniques for solution of management problems.
Civil Engineering is a wide field and includes many types of structures such as residential buildings, public buildings, industrial buildings, roads, bridges, tunnels, railways, dams, canal and canal structures, airports, harbours, and ports, water treatment plants, waste water treatment plant, water supply networks, and drainage networks.
