Welcome to the Civil Engineering Department of Parul Polytechnic Institute Limda. It was established in the year 2012 with intake of 60 and in year 2013 intake increased to 120. The Department offers a three year Diploma course leading Civil Engineering. The faculty members are specialized in different disciplines of Civil Engineering. There are currently 2 Assistant Professors and 14 Lecturers working in the department.
Over the years, the department has nurtured young minds to make them competent civil engineers. The department is also very active in conducting Expert Lecture, Industries visit, Faculty development program etc.
As a Civil Engineer, a vast world of imagination and dreams is opened to us. The Field of Civil Engineering is so vast that one can’t limit oneself to any particular field and excel without having a proper knowledge of other related fields.
The civil engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines that deals with the Planning, Design, Construction, Operation and Maintenance of the structures and systems including Roads, Railways, Airport, Bridges, Canals, Dams, Pipelines, Treatment plants, Residential/Commercial/Public buildings and Industrial buildings. It comprises many areas covered under different subjects: Surveying, Building Planning and Design, Construction Technology, Fluid Mechanics, Hydrology and water resources, Environmental engineering, Highway and transportation, Structural analysis and design, Concrete technology, Geotechnical engineering.
Civil Engineers can find jobs in Government Departments, Private and Public Sector Industries, Research and Teaching Institutions etc. Job opportunities for civil engineers are expected to increase rapidly looking at the requirement of the same in various sectors, although the construction industry is vulnerable to fluctuations in the economy.
Civil engineers will always be needed to maintain and repair existing facilities and structures and to construct new ones. After doing Diploma, one can avail jobs in Road Projects, Building Work, Consultancy Firms, Quality Testing Laboratories or Housing Societies. The experts say there is a high demand for experienced civil engineers in developed countries.
Civil engineers are employed in all the major construction projects carried out by the State or Central Government, the Railways, Private Construction Companies, Military, Engineering Services, Consultancy Services etc. Civil engineers can open their own independent consultancy services.
