Professor & Head of Department

History and Features of the Department

Civil engineering is the mother branch among all branches and is a broad field of engineering that deals with the planning, construction and maintenance of structures, or public works, as they are related to earth, water or civilization and their processes.

The department of civil engineering at K.V.G. College of engineering was established in the year of 1986 as the part of institute since from its inception. The program is approved by AICTE and obtained permanent affiliation from VTU, Belagavi. The department has been in the forefront of advanced research in civil engineering and has also been very pro-active in industrial interaction and technology development.

The civil department is known for its excellence in teaching with highly qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty, skilled supporting staff, well established and updated laboratories to latest technologies, excellent infra-structure and disciplined and hardworking students. The department facilitates good teaching learning environment to the students so that they can excel in their studies. The department offers undergraduate course with an intake of 120 and also post graduate programme, master's degree in construction technology with an intake of 18.

The department is consisting of 3 Professors 1 Associate Professor and 16 Asst Professors headed by Dr. Chandrashekhar A. Over the years, the department secured many ranks at university level. Students are encouraged to take up research projects and also be motivated to present papers in student seminars, paper contest and state level project exhibition etc. The best projects are financially supported by R&D cell.

All faculty members are involved in various department activities association activities R&D activities and consultancy works like soil testing, engineering material testing for various organizations like PWD, Panchayathraj engineering (PRE) PMGSY, Southern railways etc. The department also provides various services in the field of construction at different stages i.e surveying, planning, designing and quality control. Department is recognized as third party agency for the inspection of works carried out by various departments such as PWD, PRE, Town panchayath and minor irrigation in kodagu and Dakshina Kannada district.

The department also has 5 state of art laboratories with the best in class facilities for the students to carry out their laboratory activities and project works using both proprietary software. Apart from that, the department also has a centralized computer centre connected with 200 Mbps internet to meet the browsing requirement of students. The department of computer science and engineering is responsible for the maintenance of Software & Hardware of the computers in the college.

Department is led by an eminent professor and backed by 24 dedicated faculty members, the department has well qualified, experienced and committed faculty to provide quality industry tuned education to the students and most of them are members of professional bodies like ISTE, CSI.

A few of the major areas of research interest that the faculties and students propose are Artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, Web Application development, Cloud Computing, Networking, Image Processing, Database, Software Engineering and Data mining.

The department will always work in close lines with the latest trends and development of most of the renowned companies. This communication expedites the process of joint research, funded projects from the companies and provides a very good opportunity to learn the latest trends in the industry. The department also organizes technical talks by resource persons from industries in every semester. Also the students are given an opportunity to go for industrial visits, wherein they come to know the real world scenario of the companies and try to understand the work environment.

The department has several MoUs with various industries. The main purpose of these MoUs is to fulfill the gap between academics and the actual industry scheme.

The department also caters a cutting edge computational facility to the students. The department produces top-class graduates who are asked for both academia and best state of art Corporates.
