The
Department of Civil Engineering has been a part of IIT Bombay since its
inception in 1958. Over the years, the department has grown tremendously, and
is now recognized as one of the best and major engineering departments in the
country and ranked highly in the World for Civil Engineering. With its
multifaceted faculty, it provides high quality teaching and instruction at both
UG and PG as well as Ph. D levels. Besides, the Department is actively involved
in basic and applied research and consultancy and provides high quality
technical advisory support through various R & D projects and consultancy
to various organizations. Civil Engineering Department continues to maintain
and cultivate its strong links with the public sector companies, planning agencies,
public service providers, consultation firms, construction industry, academic
and research institutions both within and outside the country.
The
department has attracted significant amount of sponsored research funding from
government and private agencies and is delivering excellent output in terms of
implementable solutions and large number of research publication in quality
journals having high impact factor. The Department disseminates the knowledge
gained from its high quality research through training programs and interacts
with world renowned personalities through workshops and conferences. The
students and faculty have won prestigious national and international awards and
recognition, and continuing to bring laurels to the department and the Institute.

The department disseminates knowledge to working professionals regularly by organizing national and international conferences and workshops. Continuing Education Programme courses are also conducted by the Department on a regular basis. The faculty publishes extensively from the research and consultancy work carried out in the Department. More than 200 research papers are published every year by the faculty in all areas of Civil Engineering in the national and international journals and conferences.
The
rules and regulations pertaining to B.Tech and Dual Degree Programme at IIT
Bombay can be found at: http://www.iitb.ac.in/newacadhome/rules/btechrulesnew08.pdf
The B.Tech. Programme involves four full
years of coursework that should be completed by the student to earn required
credits to graduate. The minimum credit requirement for the student to graduate
from Civil Engineering is 275
credits. The students can also pursue honors stream
which require an additional 24 credits to be earned by the student. Students
can also complete a B.Tech degree with minor if they pursue an additional 30
credits with other departments.
The B.Tech. Programme involves five full
years of coursework that should be completed by the student to earn required
credits to graduate. The minimum credit requirement for the student to graduate
from Civil Engineering is 395
credits.
A basket of four courses are offered to students desiring to pursue a minor in Civil Engineering at undergraduate level. These courses are open to B.Tech students from other departments desiring to pursue a minor in Civil Engineering
