Civil Engineering

About Department

The Department of Civil Engineering at Sree Sastha Institute of Engineering and Technology, Chembarambakam was started in the year 2002 with an intake of 30 with the approval of AICTE and the intake was increased to180 in the year 2011 and also 2 post graduate programmes with an intake of 18 each.

The department has NBA accredited for 3 years (2009-2012).Within a short period of time, the department has taken the concrete shape in carrying out the academic and non-curricular activities in an effective way. The Graduate of Civil Engineering program will implement optimum solution for societal problems using professional knowledge resulting in sustainable development of construction industry and also to analyze, solve, design and execute projects with the fundamental knowledge of Civil Engineering.
It has also been creating opportunities for pursuing postgraduate programmes in reputed Indian and foreign universities. The Department library has a collection of 206 books on various titles catering to the needs of faculty and students. The Civil Engineering department has full-fledged Labs for both Under-graduate and Post graduate programme with excellent infrastructure facilities.
