When the flight of imagination comes together with a foundation of solid analysis, civil engineering emerges as a division of engineering responsible for shaping cities, ports and highways. In a way development of civil engineering mirrors the development of human civilization. Civil engineering is a wide ranging profession, including several separate specialized sub-disciplines. Different facets of civil engineering are closely interlinked and require technical as well as strong aesthetic skills. Civil engineering comprises knowledge of structures, material science, geography, geology, soil, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields.
Building more than just bricks and mortar
A civil engineer must be able to design safe structures which meet standard codes in the regions that they are being built in. These structures must be designed with maintenance, efficiency, and other economic concerns in mind as well to ensure that they will endure through years of use. A career in civil engineering is both challenging and rewarding. The most gratifying part of being a civil engineer is to see one's creations - be it an apartment or an expressway, come to physical realization.

The Indo – US Collaboration for Engineering Education (IUCEE)
With intention to continuously improve on teaching quality and competency level of our faculty members, JECRC UDML has joined hands with IUCEE. IUCEE, with headquarters at University of Massachusetts Lowell, has a mission to improve the quality and global relevance of engineering education and research in India and related benefits to US engineering educators, with focus on faculty development, student development, curriculum development, as well as improved teaching technologies & research. Visited lectures and webinars are conducted frequently in the campus.
