About the Department

The Department of Civil Engineering, one of the youngest members of the Don Bosco College of Engineering and Technology, was established in the year 2011 with an aim to provide state of the art education to the students through quality teaching guided by innovative research and consultancy as well as societal needs towards sustainable development. The Department with a strong team of well qualified and diversely specialized faculty members and staff provides special attention towards the fundamentals and field related Civil Engineering issues of INFRA-STRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT right from surveying, planning, geo-technical investigation, structural design and construction engineering which are vital components for creating competent engineers to serve in real life situations. Department arranges visit to construction sites where latest technologies in construction and brain storming sessions , seminars, symposium which enhance the ability to think out of the box and to come up with innovative ideas. This department can take pride to mention that students from all over the north eastern states are undergoing studies in this department and majority of the students passed out during last four years are efficiently serving in their respective states. M.Tech. in Construction Engineering and Management offered by Civil Engineering Department is aimed at shaping the enrolled students’ managerial skills in the field of engineering, and prepare them for working as Strategists who can efficiently fulfil the production, commercial, and technological demands of an organization.
