Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) in Civil Engineering

Overview

The B. Tech Program in Civil Engineering was launched during 1997 with an intake of 60 students p.a. Till 2003 the institute was affiliated to Utkal University. The affiliation was changed to Biju Pattnaik University of technology during 2003, when all technical institutes of the state (ODISHA) were brought under single technical University. Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) was awarded Deemed-to-be-University status under Section 3 of University Grants Commission (UGC) Act  during 2004.  NBA has granted Tier-I accreditation (under Washington Accord) to the B. Tech Program in Civil Engineering offered by the School of Civil Engineering, KIIT.

School of Civil Engineering is currently imparting four-year B. Tech in Civil Engineering and two-year M. Tech in Civil Engineering in four specializations. Besides it also offers one-year PG Diploma in Construction Management and Infrastructure Development. The School also offers Doctoral research program.
