  • A student is successful if the knowledge imparted in the engineering education and the skills developed by him can be effectively utilized in his life after his education and is able to contribute to the society and the socio-economic development of the country.

Department Profile

         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. Department is committed to providing innovative and high-quality education for our students to acquire the fundamental Knowledge, Skills and Attributes necessary for entry and success in their professional career, supported by latest tools and technology.

         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 in KVGCE 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 infrastructure and disciplined and hardworking students. The department offers undergraduate course (BE) with an intake of 60. Two year Post Graduation programme -M.Tech in Construction Technology was started in 2014 with an intake of 18. The department also has a recognized research centre.

         Students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to acquire leadership qualities. The Association Civil Engineering (ACE) has been functioning for the benefit of the students. It serves as a platform for students to make technical presentations, gain knowledge about recent advancements and bring together novel ideas. This Association aims at bridging the gap between the academic and the industry by inviting renowned industrialists and academicians to interact with students. Guest lectures, industrial visits, site visits, etc., are organized and value added courses are conducted on regular basis to ensure that students are conversant with recent developments in the field of Civil Engineering

         All the faculty members are involved in various department and association activities, R&D activities and consultancy services to the society. The department takes up Third Party inspection of various government organizations like PWD, Panchayathraj Engineering (PRE), Rural water supply and Sanitary engineering, Minor Irrigation, Town Panchayaths etc. in Dakshina Kannada and Kodagu Districts. The department offers consultancy and technical services in Geotechnical Engineering, Highway Materials and Structural Design. The Department is also the advisors for Kodagu Nirmithi Kendra and Dakshina Kannda Nirmithi Kendra.

         The department has several MoUs with various construction industries. The main purpose of these MoUs is to fulfill the gap between academics and the industry. The Department provides internship Program for the students with the help of Alumni & local Engineers.

         The Department obtained Life membership of Indian Concrete Institution. Our faculty members are Life members of many professional bodies like ACCE(I), IRC, IE, ISTE, IASTR.
