Welcome to Civil Engineering Department

Civil Engineering Department (CED) of CBIT started functioning right from the inception of the institute, in the year 1979. CED has thirty-one well qualified full-time faculty (eight - professors, three - associate professors, and twenty - assistant professors), thirteen skilled non-teaching staff, and six supporting staff. Presently, the department offers one undergraduate (UG) program i.e., B.E. Civil Engineering, with two sections (having an intake of 60 students in each section) and two postgraduate (PG) programs i.e., M.E. Structural Engineering and M.E. Earthquake Engineering (having an intake of 25 and 18 students, respectively).

CED’s state-of-the-art laboratories enable faculty to perform research and consultancy activities that contribute for the advancement of civil engineering knowledge while providing hands-on experience for students. Osmania University has recognized CED as a research center.

CED is actively involved in organizing international and national level technical events facilitated by world renowned experts to train and motivate faculty and students in advancing their technical and research skills. The department facilitates internship opportunities, industrial visits and skill development activities for the benefit of students. Highly experienced faculty of the department serve on expert panels and advisory boards of various governmental and private organizations. They also serve as resource persons in technical events of international and national repute. Graduates of CED are distributed globally, exhibiting remarkable success in their careers (academic/research/industry) while working for organizations of renowned stature. Well qualified faculty, skilled non-teaching staff, qualitative and enterprising students are invaluable assets of CED.
