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


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.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):

The B. Tech program in Civil Engineering aims to prepare the graduates with the following objectives:

  • The graduates shall be able to provide to solutions to civil engineering problems and allied areas involving structural design, construction, geotechnical, environmental and water resources issues.
  • The graduates shall be able to perceive the limitation and impact of engineering solutions in social, legal, environmental, economical and multidisciplinary contexts.
  • The graduates shall demonstrate professional and ethical responsibilities and thrive to reinforce their knowledge being a part of higher educational programs.

Program Outcomes (POs):

The program outcomes are :

  • Engineering knowledge: Ability to apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

  • Problem analysis: Ability to identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

  • Design/Development of solutions: Ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

  • Conduct investigations on complex problems: Ability to use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

  • Modern tool usage: Ability to create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

  • The engineer and society: Ability to apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
