Shelter and sustainable environment are the basic needs for all living beings. Civil Engineering takes pride in providing the basic needs and hence called the “Mother of all Engineering.” Civil Engineering is the backbone for almost all the infrastructural development. A country’s development is based on infrastructural facilities like buildings, basic amenities, transportation, communication and IT enabled services. Civil Engineers play a key role in developing and maintaining these systems. Rise in competition and increase in population lead to the necessity of sophisticated transport systems, high rise buildings, energy efficient systems etc. Hence a Civil Engineer has to equip himself with innovative thinking, modern technology and problem solving skills by keeping in mind the environmental sustainability. We, the Department of Civil Engineering at Velammal College of Engineering and technology prepare our graduates to fulfill the needs of stakeholder at par with the growing challenges of the society.
The Civil Engineering department was established in the year 2011 and it offers a UG course in B.E Civil Engineering. The program follows the curriculum set by Anna University and offers value added courses in order to prepare the students as industry-ready products. The Department is headed by Mrs. J. P. Annie Sweetlin Jebarani M.Tech., M.B.A., who has over two decades of experience in teaching. She has worked in many reputed institutions. She has organized many Faculty Development Programmes.
