Engineering has been an important aspect of life since the beginning of human civilization. Civil engineering is regarded as the mother of engineering and is one of the core and oldest branch of engineering. It was so named to distinguish it from military engineering. Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles for solving the problems of society. Its history is closely linked to advances in human civilization and is basically related to the creation of various types of structures and maintenance. Lord Vishwakarma is worshiped as the creator of all structures in prehistoric period. With this view, civil engineers are the Vishwakarmas of the present day. Civil engineering is a wide ranging profession, covering construction, designing and maintenance of buildings, bridges, roads, dams, canals, irrigation, water supply system etc, and its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields.
Civil Engineering at M.I.T. Moradabad was started in 2009, to make its contribution towards the development of the society. It was started with an intake of 60 students in the session 2009-10 and is maintained at same intake as of now. The department has a four storied building with eight different fully equipped laboratories. It offers a four-year degree course leading to the Bachelors degree in civil engineering. The Department actively promotes curriculum development activity by updating existing courses, developing new courses and preparing resource material for teaching. It also trains the students on various modern software like AUTOCAD, STADD, SAP2000, GEO-5 etc. and equipment like TOTAL STATION, G.P.S. etc., which bridges the gap of academic and professional field. The faculty of Civil Engineering at M.I.T. is continuously making efforts to impart quality teaching at the undergraduate level to attain excellence and thus to empower students to meet the technological needs and socio-economic challenges.
