Computer Aided Design of Structures



Department of Civil Engineering was started in the year 1979 with an intake of 30 for UG program. The intake was increased to 50 in 1994 and to 90 in 2009. The Department was granted autonomy by VTU, Belagavi in 2007. The department has been accredited thrice by NBA, in 2002 for the first time, in 2005 for the second time and recently in March 2020 for the third time (under Tier-1). The department has been recognized as Research Centre by VTU, Belagavi since 2002. The department is actively engaged in the Material Testing & Consultancy. In the year 2005-06, the department started PG program, M.Tech. in Computer Aided Design of Structures(CADS) with an intake of 18.
