Civil Engineering

Civil engineering includes the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of large and permanent engineering projects of our civilization. Civil engineers are in demand wherever there are people. The major subdivisions of civil engineering are Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Surveying, Transportation Engineering and Water Resources Engineering.

 

The civil engineer is responsible for projects such as bridges, large buildings, dams, river and harbor works, municipal water supply and sanitation facilities, streets, highways, and other transportation facilities. On many projects, civil engineers work in close cooperation with engineers and scientists from other fields.

The department is headed by Dr. O. Eswara Reddy, M.Tech., Ph.D. who has 20 years of teaching, research, industrial and administrative experience. He graduated in B.Tech. (Civil Engineering) from S.V. University in 1998 and M.Tech. (Geotechnical Engineering) from NIT, Warangal. He was awarded Ph.D. in Civil Engineering by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad for his work on “Pullout Response of Granular Pile Anchors”. He has been working as Professor and Chairman – Board of Studies in the Department of Civil Engineering at SVEC, Tirupati since 2010. He is the Founder Head and Architect of Civil Engineering Department and served as Vice-Principal, 2nd Shift Polytechnic.
