Department of Civil Engineering

Message from HoD

Civil Engineering is by far the oldest discipline of engineering which deals with planning, design, construction and maintenance of physical and built environment. Due to continuous development and challenges emerging within the country and around the world, its scope is overwhelming and one of the most sought after discipline of engineering.

The Department of Civil Engineering is the youngest department at Inderprastha Engineering College and came into existence in 2009 with initial intake of 60 students, which was subsequently increased to 120 in 2011. It is our continuous endeavor to provide a holistic development of a civil engineering student aiming at acquiring technical education. We are consistently designing and developing our teaching and learning process to impart the required knowledge of fundamentals, acquire problem solving ability, develop the technical and soft skills, harness the student’s inquisitiveness for innovation and contribution to the society. This is achieved through ICT based lectures, simulations, laboratory experiments, industrial visits, guest lectures/workshops, site visits, case studies; project based learning and activities in technical societies.

The civil engineering team comprises of competent and enthusiastic faculties fulfilling AICTE norms and from different specializations required for undergraduate program. The team believes and practices student centric learning pedagogy achieved through Outcome Based Education. The faculties are mentors to students who prepare, counsel and guide them to be ethical and competent professionals, pursue higher studies and be leaders of the community. We also seek feedback from parents, visitors and alumni’s for continuous improvement.

We invite you to navigate through the department homepage and join the oldest and one of the most promising discipline of Civil Engineering at IPEC.
