Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering under VMKV Engineering College was formed as an individual Branch/Department during the academic year 2004-05, under the Vinayaka Missions Research Foundation (Deemed to be University), Salem.
The Department of Civil Engineering pulls out all stops to create outstanding engineers with advanced teaching techniques and learning aids for undergraduate students. Students are not only made experts in technical aspects but also in interpersonal skills, a vital ingredient to excel in the fast-paced world


To achieve excellence in the field of Technical Education, eventually contributing to our National Development.


The following mission statements aim at translating our vision into reality

  • To impart engineering knowledge through innovative, creative and entrepreneurial approaches.
  • To develop skill sets among the students so as to make them globally competitive.
  • To inculcate value system among the students there by making them, follow ethical values in life and later in their profession.
  • To cater to the needs of economy, society and the country as a whole.

  • Civil Engineering is a wide field and includes many types of structure such as residential buildings, public buildings, industrial building, roads, bridges, tunnels, railway, dams, and canal ,airport, harbours, and ports, water treatment plant, water supply network and drainage network
  • The main role of civil Engineering or the task of civil Engineering is Planning, Designing, Estimating, Supervising Construction, Managing construction, execution and maintenance of structure.
  • An ability to recognize the importance of civil Engineering professional development by pursuing postgraduate studies or face competitive examinations that offer challenging and rewarding careers in computing.

Programme Outcomes

On completion of program of engineering, graduates will be able to:

  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/Development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Programme Specific Outcomes (PSOs)

Graduating Students of Biomedical Engineering programme will be able to:

  • PSO1: Multi-Dimensional Approach - Solve complex engineering problems in the field of aerospace engineering by using available resources and tools for an optimised and desired output.
  • PSO2: Develop/Design/Modify/Involve - Identify the thrust areas of major concern in aerospace engineering affecting man and material in broad aspects, design and modify the systems to create a comfortable zone for men and machinery.
  • PSO3: Entrepreneurial Skills - Design components or processes for meeting the demands of quality standards with environmental considerations.

Value Added Courses

To bridge the gap between the academic and industry need, Value Added Courses (VAC) are conducted regularly in our College.

It is important for higher education institutions to supplement the curriculum to make students better prepared to meet industry demands as well as develop their own interests and aptitudes. Our Department offers a wide variety of short term certificate courses which are conducted after class hours or during semester breaks. These courses are conducted by professionals and industry experts and help students stand apart from the rest in the job market by adding further value to their resume.

  • List of Value Added Courses
  • 1. Computer Aided Building Drawing
  • 2. Construction Safety Management
  • 3. Valuation of Immovable Property
  • 4. Municipality Building Rules
