From HOD’S Desk
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, material engineering, coastal engineering, surveying and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to state and central government levels and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
J.S.P.M’S Jayawantrao Sawant Polytechnic has established Civil engineering in 2010 with intake of 60 students. The intake is expanded from 60 to 180. The department is fully equipped with best position of teaching faculty, sophisticated laboratory equipment’s and latest computational software like Auto CAD which helps the students to develop expertise in civil engineering. The aim of the department is to generate such human resources capable of construction activities with sound academics. The department is determined to adopt all modern techniques and provide the students well equipped study place with sound counseling.
There is no one typical career path for civil engineers. Most engineering graduates start with jobs of responsibility as junior engineer. In some fields and firms, entry-level engineers are put to work primarily monitoring construction in the field, assisting senior design engineers. More senior engineers can move into doing more complex analysis or design work or management of more complex design projects or management of teams of engineers. Civil engineers find jobs in public works departments, railways, private construction companies, water-supply companies, petro-chemical companies, highway authorities. Civil engineers can also have private consultancy in building design and construction.
