Department of         [Polytechnic]

Civil Engineering

the oldest engineering discipline

Civil Engineering is one of the broadest Engineering fields.

Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline and is being offered at this institute from the academic year 2012-13. This department is endowed with a high caliber, dedicated, well qualified and experienced team of professionally inclined faculty. To sustain global competition, innovative techniques are utilized to expose the students to the latest trends and practices in the construction industry through various activities like site visits, seminars by experts and workshops.
The main objective of the Departments is to provide students with the necessary skills and practical experience to fulfill their professional duties and responsibilities in teamwork, along with ethics, technical leadership, business acumen and lifelong learning. This will provide the path for the students to become a future engineer, innovators and make substantial contributions to the society of Civil Engineers.


The vision of civil Department at VACOEA is to be a leader in the field of civil engineering by imparting quality education in developing highly competent manpower and promote high end research to meet the current and future challenges in Civil Engineering.
