The Civil Engineering program has been in existence since the inception of MEC in 2014. CE faculty are committed to delivering knowledge and expertise across a wide spectrum of subjects and are actively involved in research that caters to the societal needs in general. Besides high quality teaching and research, the department is actively involved in Consultancy, in collaboration with several companies.

FACE 2019

The National Conference on Futuristic Approaches in Civil Engineering (FACE-2019) aims to bring together researchers, engineers, scientists and industry professionals to an open forum to foster active discussions on the latest advances in the field of civil engineering. The conference will offer opportunities to explore current research problems in wide ranging areas of civil engineering, such as construction, geotechnical, structural, environmental, water resources and transportation engineering. Special sessions on state-of-theart topics such as climate change, intelligent transportation systems, 3D printing of concrete, structural vulnerability under natural hazards and geo-synthetics will be emphasized. This exciting program will feature invited speakers from government and private sectors as well as panel discussion, case studies, product demonstrations, technical paper sessions and local tours of technical interest. We cordially invite you to submit your scientific contributions to the FACE-2019 conference.
