Overview

Department of Civil Engineering

Infrastructure is the backbone of every country’s economy and becomes the very foundation for prosperity. With the advent of emerging technologies and automation, the conventional methods of infrastructural development is set to undergo a radical transformation.

At MU, our curriculum is designed with a futuristic perspective so that our students are equipped in advance to tackle any challenge that might arise from the new age technological-revolution. Civil Engineering offers sixteen departmental courses (50 credits) covering basic and advanced levels in mechanics/dynamics of soils, structures and fluids together with surveying, transportation, environmental engineering, construction technology and construction project management.

Five elective courses (15 credits), professional or open ones, allow for specialization in water resources, foundation, structure, transportation and environmental. Acquired knowledge and skills have to be applied in four departmental projects (15 credits).

Vision

Train civil engineers of excellence instilling scientific thinking and responsive leadership for ensuring innovative and sustainable development.

Mission

  • Impart a comprehensive and inclusive knowledgebase for arriving at innovative solutions for practical problems while ensuring environmental protection, safety, and economy.
  • Advance interdisciplinary and sustainable research and development for the ever-increasing and challenging needs of the built infrastructure of the future.
  • Inculcate in students an entrepreneurial thought through industrial interaction

Laboratories

Geology Laboratory

The Geology Laboratory focuses on the application of geology to civil engineering practice. The aim of is to make students understand earth-structure interactions and investigate how the earth and earth processes impact human-made structures and viceversa.

Students are trained to understand the properties of different rocks and minerals. Students are also trained to test and identify different rocks and their suitability to be used in civil engineering structures.

Equipments:-

  • Mineral specimens
  • Rock Specimens
  • Physical Mineralogy Collections: (Hardness, Fracture, Cleavage & Lustre)
  • Understanding the Strategic enablers in realizing driving exponential growth ambitions
  • Polarising microscope, to evaluate the composition and three dimensional structure of specimens
Transportation Engineering Laboratory

The objective of transportation engineering laboratory is to determine the properties of coarse aggregates and bitumen. The students will be able to infer the suitability of these materials for construction of road. This laboratory course will help the students to understand the theoretical concepts learned in the course transportation engineering.

Equipments:-

  • Compressive testing machine
  • Impact testing machine
  • Los Angles abrasion testing machine
  • Penetrometer
  • Ring and ball apparatus
  • Ductility testing machine
  • Pensky martin’s apparatus
