About this course

Civil engineering is one of the oldest and most renowned branches of engineering. Civil engineers apprehend, design, build, supervise, operate, construct and maintain infrastructure projects. These projects are in both public and private sectors including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges and systems for water supply and sewage treatment.

At LJU, Department of Civil Engineering started the Under Graduate programme in the year 2007 with an intake of 60 students which has now increased to 180 students. Besides the undergraduate programme, The Post Graduate programme (M.E) in specialized civil branch called Structural Engineering (SE) is also available at LJU. Our overall curriculum prepares students to work in a professional environment with the help of laboratories, workshops, seminars and industrial visits.


According to 'The Global Market Insights Inc', the Civil Engineering Market size is expected to grow up to USD 11.72 trillion by 2025. Civil engineers work in branches of design, planning, construction, and maintenance of infrastructure projects in both public and private sector. They get recruited by Construction Firms, Defence Forces, Development Boards of Municipal Bodies, etc. Civil engineers also work in R&D and educational industry.
