Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2012. The department is growing at fast pace to achieve its goals.

  • To impart quality teaching to attain excellence.
  • To empower students to meet the challenges of professional development.

The Department of Civil Engineering offers undergraduate programme with emphasis on fundamental theory and practice in Civil Engineering keeping in view the current and continuously changing scenarios in this discipline.
Faculty members from the reputed colleges of India like NIT’S, IIT’S and B.I.T, Mesra are the part of department. Department has faculty members expertise in core subjects of civil engineering like structural engineering and construction engineering. Faculty members work hard to nurture young minds to produce bright able civil engineers. Our staff members typically have a high sense of purpose and derive great meaning from working together to make sure that HITM, Agra’s academic excellence is sustained.
The department has a number of laboratories and software focusing on practical aspects related to civil engineering.

Department has lecture rooms with capacity of 60 students each.
