"The Department of Civil Engineering is part of the institution since its inception. The faculty members are well trained in Academic and Research Activities and are drawn from prestigious educational institutions."
B.TECH - CIVIL ENGINEERING

The Civil Engineering department puts in a great effort to create outstanding engineers with advanced techniques, employing professional teaching methodologies for the students to excel in today's fast paced world. The faculty of the CE Department undertakes consultancy works related to topographic surveying, contour mapping, design of multi-storeyed structures, soil investigation and foundation design, industrial structures and pressured concrete structures as well as waste water analysis, design of water and waste water treatment plants, environmental management systems etc. Besides the academic programmes, additional bridge courses, seminars and workshops are conducted for the benefit of students as well as the faculty.

OBJECTIVES OF THE CIVIL DEPARTMENT
  • To produce Civil Engineers of Excellence by imparting training and insight into vital areas of Civil Engineering, facilitating the construction of cost effective structures and super structures.
  • To equip the students with sufficient knowledge allowing them to meet the challenges in the construction industry, be it planning and design or management.
  • To create responsible engineers with a human touch who work for morally upright, sustainable and eco-friendly development.
M.TECH - GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

The never-ending need for infrastructure has forced development to take place in unsuitable ground and environmental conditions. Construction projects coming up in adverse ground conditions require experts with thorough understanding of geotechnical engineering for providing proper foundations for the proposed structures. IES College of Engineering has recognized the importance of Geotechnical Engineering and considering it as a social responsibility, took necessary steps to introduce M.Tech. Geotechnical Engineering course in the department of Civil Engineering. IESCE is the first self-financing college to offer this course in Kerala.

It is the second college in the state to offer this course. The innovative methods of study in real life situations help the students get a good exposure to practical problems and their solutions. Students are given thorough training in surveying, planning, analysis, design and cost estimation of Civil Engineering structures including industrial buildings through intensive practical classes, mini and major projects, survey camps, field visits and project work. Experts in the field of Geotechnical Engineering conduct regular sessions/seminars for the students as well as faculty members.
