About Department

Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline. Civil engineering is the applied science of physics and mathematics to address the infrastructural needs of human civilization. Thoughout history civil engineers have not only been key to advancing societies, but their work has produced some of our most enduring artifacts. Take for example, the Ancient Egyptian pyramids or the Roman aqueducts - both stand as enormous feats of civil engineering.

Traditionally Civil Engineering has played an important role in improving the civic life of society by harmonizing the natural resources available on earth also. Civil Engineers have found an important role in some newer areas like design and construction of waste containment systems, disposal of high level nuclear wastes, and protection of Ground water resources. In recent years Civil Engineers are facing newer challenges in infrastructure development that is resulting into development of newer type of foundation solutions, treatment of natural soils, and development of newer materials. Broadly a Civil Engineer is expected to do planning, research, design and construction of buildings and roads; traffic and transportation, irrigation and power, water supply and sewage disposal, dam and reservoirs, ports and harbors, airways and navigation, treatment of industrial wastes and abatement of air pollution, noise pollution and disaster mitigation.

The UG curriculum in Government Engineering College Barmer broad-based and designed to introduce the students with a wide range of problems encountered by civil engineers. Survey camp and practical training which are part of the curriculum, aim to expose the students to actual field problems. Laboratory experiments, computer aided anylysis, design and drawing and the tutorial classes are held to build confidence in the students. The Department is well equipped with laboratories related to Structure, Concrete testing, Soil Mechanics, Highway Engineering, Experimental Stress Analysis, Computational Mechanics, Education Technology, Photogrammetric and GIS facilities, Environmental Engineering and Hydraulics laboratories. We undertake industrial consultancy works as a part of its interaction with industry and also organizes seminars/symposia for professional interaction. The Department contributes to the interdisciplinary academic and research activity of the Government Engineering College Barmer. With global warming and increasing changes to our envoronment, one of the chief concerns of civil engineers today is dimate. You can learn more about this rapidly growing field.
