Civil Engineering is the mother of all other branches in Engineering. It is always-in Demand as Infrastructure development is directly related to the growth of the nation. Exposure to globalization and modern living styles has made the work of Civil Engineers not only essential but also interesting and enchanting. A career in Civil Engineering can take the student to great heights. Civil Engineers work in the heart of the busiest cities, see skyscrapers, flyovers, metros, more efficient underground transport networks, and in the remotest parts of the planet, bringing fresh water and reliable infrastructure to those who need it most. There is a wide range of diverse careers under the umbrella of Civil Engineering, with great employment opportunities and excellent career towards a bright future. Besides new constructions, as infrastructure continues to age, the requirement for civil engineers will grow as they will be needed to manage projects, rebuild bridges, repair roads, and upgrade levels and dams, etc. Department of Civil Engineering at The NorthCap University was established in 2007. Department has been providing quality education and is among the most dynamic department in the University. Department is flourishing under the able guidance of Vice Chancellor Prof. H.B. Raghavendra who is Civil Engineer and Ph.D. from IISC Bangalore. Department offers excellent programs like B.Tech in Civil Engineering with options of specialization in “Smart Infrastructure development” and “Construction and Project Management” and M.Tech with Specialization in “Structural Engineering”, “Construction Management” and “Environmental Engineering”. Department offers a Ph.D. program in Structural Engineering, Construction Management, Environmental Engineering, Waste Management. Department has produced 4 Ph.D.’s and presently 6 research scholars are pursuing Ph.D. Department is empowered with well-qualified experienced faculty and technicians. Faculty members have received funding of nearly Rs. 60 Lakhs from Department of Science and Technology for three different projects.

No engineering branch is difficult if you have a casual attitude towards it. Every engineering ranch is challenging if you have a robust attitude towards it. The same is true for civil engineering. I took my B.Tech casually and studied only before the exam. I never found civil a difficult branch. Some of friends spent day and night studying and they found civil very challenging. To pass in engineering, one only needs to memorize and learn superficially. To succeed in engineering, one has to go into the depths of the subject.
