Civil and Environmental Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DCEE) at Indian Institute of Technology Patna (IIT Patna) that constitutes of five independent disciplines; Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, and Environmental Engineering. DCEE is one of the new departments established in 2013 that offers a four-year course (Bachelors degree) and two-year course (Master’s degree) in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering. The department also provides doctoral programmes on emerging research areas (viz., Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Railway Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, and Environmental Engineering). The DCEE is an innovative and vibrant place of learning, where students pursue their educational and research interests in order to lead the next generation in transforming the disciplines of civil and environmental engineering. Department is actively involved in basic as well as advanced research and provides high quality technical advisory support through various R&D projects and consultancy to various organizations.

Goal of the DCEE is to reach the level of excellence in latest technical front as well as advanced research; to provide a high quality teaching and learning environment in the field of Civil and Environmental Engineering to make students capable of innovative thinking. Instead of compartmentalizing, DCEE at IIT Patna is adopting an integrate approach to forge all these areas into a multi-disciplinary and application oriented course. This interdisciplinary nature will lead to development of creative and analytical ability of the students to handle the novel challenges of the society; further improving the lifestyle of the society by creating various innovative works and transferring technological knowledge from classroom to the real life.
