Message from HoD

The department of civil engineering at the MEA Engineering College offers an eight-semester course leading to B.Tech degree of the APJAK Technological University. The department is also offering professional consultancy in civil engineering to the needy clients in the field. It has a two-dozen strong well-qualified, dedicated, sincere and dynamic faculty as well as technical staff in different areas of specialization. Department takes the moral and social responsibility to imbibe the state of the art technological information to the students, the harbingers for tomorrow’s nation building. Traditionally, civil engineering has been catering to the basic needs of the civil society and for millennia engineering meant only civil engineering to the public at large. Keeping this legacy, we simply do not produce engineers but shape a new generation of social engineers, with commitment and concern for the marginalised human beings. The faculty transfer their knowledge and expertise to the students by means of latest teaching aids to mould them to be competent in the fast changing information age. In order to promote the social commitment, leadership qualities and organisational skills beyond the curricular activities, students are encouraged to perform co-curricular and extra-curricular activities within and outside the college. The department is taking effort to develop entrepreneurial skills in students, so that they would drive the spirit of growth of our economy and would be able to generate employment opportunities for other qualified and skilled youth also. The strong bond between students and faculty members is remarkable and help our students to show meritorious performance in academics, technical, sports and cultural activities at institutional and University level. We have a serene campus in the mofussil outskirts, away from the din and bustle of the restless city. The students have a real life here, not just a campus. Please visit us to feel a change.
