Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad
Department of Civil Engineering since its inception in 2008 has been at the forefront of teaching, research and consulting with a focus in the broad areas of Geotechnical, Structural, Transportation Systems, Hydraulics and Water Resources and Environmental Engineering. Our alumni have gone on to serve in distinguished capacities in various industries and institutions in India and abroad. Our research focuses on both fundamental and applied research to provide solutions that help drive the future evolution of Civil Engineering. Industry interaction and academic exchanges are an integral characteristic of our department.
The department offers a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) program in Civil Engineering, and two years and three year Master of Technology (M.Tech) programs. We also offer self-sponsored M.Tech. programs (two years) in four specializations: Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Hydraulics and Water Resource Engineering, and Structural Engineering. The department also offers a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in five specializations: Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, and Water Resources Engineering. CE faculty are committed to delivering knowledge and expertise in the broad spectrum of Civil Engineering and are actively involved with research that caters to societal needs in general. Our faculty and graduate students are actively involved in several sponsored projects from various funding agencies that include the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, National Highway Authority of India, Ministry of Environment & Forests, and Ministry of Human Resources & Development.
Our vision is to become a pioneering Department in the country for teaching, research and consultancy in existing and emerging areas of Civil Engineering.
