About School of Civil Engineering
The School of Civil Engineering aims to meet the future needs of the construction industry and society by producing professional Civil Engineers competent in analyzing, designing and managing solutions for practical engineering problems. It imparts sound fundamentals at B.Tech. level, specialized subjects at M.Tech. level and provides high-quality research guidance at the PhD level. The teaching-learning process is seamlessly supported by excellent academic support facilities (laboratory, library etc.). The school is actively engaged in project and consultancy activities and disseminates research and project achievements through various publications. It has established collaborations in the areas of regular academic, research and consultancy activities with various organizations. The school has been able to build an effective institute-industry interaction and lays focus on entrepreneurship development amongst the students.
The B. Tech Program in Civil Engineering was launched on 1997 with an intake of 60 students per annum. Till 2003, the institute was affiliated with Utkal University. The affiliation was changed to Biju Pattnaik University of Technology in 2003, when all technical institutes of the state (ODISHA) were brought under a single technical University. Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) was awarded Deemed-to-be-University status under Section 3 of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Act, 1956 in 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, Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) Deemed-to-be University.
