About Civil Engineering

Even though the department of civil engineering is the oldest among all other branches of engineering, but at PESITM ours is the youngest branch as it was established in the year 2013 with an intake of 60 students every year. Presently we at PESITM  offering four years undergraduate course in Civil Engineering comprising eight semesters. The course is recognized by Government of Karnataka and approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi (AICTE) and affiliated to Visveswaraya Technological University, Belagavi (VTU). Also our department emphasizes on, frequent industrial visits and academic- industry interactions which enables the students to acquire field knowledge and industrial exposure. Department has well equipped state of the art laboratories, well designed classrooms. Highly qualified, dedicated and experienced faculties with supporting staff are the back bone of the department.

In addition to the regular academic activity the department also offers its services in the form of consultancy and testing to various departmental and private agencies.
