Construction engineering covers erection and maintenance, and repair of buildinga and other immovable structures, together with the building of roads and other service facilities that become integral part of structures and are essential to the use for any general purpose.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT (DIP/DEG/PG DIP/PG)
Construction manager determine the appropriate construction method sand schedule required for construction activities in logical, discrete steps, each leading to an intermediate objective. They estimate the time required to complete each step in an effort to meet established budgets and deadlines for particular construction project.
CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY (DIP/DEG)
Construction technology deals with all aspects building and structure which includes the clearing of the site and development of the structure. It also covers service equipment’s when installed such as plumbing, heating, central air conditioning, electric wiring, lighting equipment, elevators & escalators.
EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING (PG/PG DIP)
Earthquake engineering are concerned with matter and energy and how they interact. They study the physical properties and structure of the earth from interior to its upper atmosphere and including land surface, sub surfaces and bodies of water. Earthquake, location raw materials and sources of power and evaluating sites for power plants.
FOUNDATION ENGINEERING (PG)
This is a field of specialization in civil engineering and cause for specific knowledge about civil structure, load capacities, as well as economical designing using appropriate material, are involved.
GEOPHYSICAL INSTRUMENTATION (PG)
This is a field of specialization in the science of Geo physics, wherein the maintenance and operation of electrical and electronics instruments are used to study
Geological technicians set up seismic recording apparatus and record its measurements for later analysis by geologists, also conduct field analysis of earthquake effects like recording visual observation and measurements, technicians involved in exploration for minerals and petroleum deposits analyze soil core sample obtained from drilling. they use radiation detection equipment’s to obtain data that with the help geologists evaluate possible mining locations.
The physical science and technology of the static and dynamic behaviour of fluids.
INDUSTRIAL STRUCTURE (SEE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING ALSO (PG)
This is a specialization in the field of civil engineering where structural design of various types are studied.

TRANSPORT ENGINEERING (DEG/PG)
Transport engineering deals with the transport of goods by road, sea, rail and air. It also involves designing of highways, airports, railway lines and their layout.
URBAN DESIGN (DEG/PG/PhD)
A specialization in architecture where design professional devote their attention to city. Their main is to save the city and the metropolis from explosive urbanization. The study helps the professionals to interface with resulting in beautiful physical results. they see that cities of today, are better planned to live with the concept of “CITY BEAUTIFUL”
WATER MANAGEMENT (PG)
It is the scientific study of water both for conservation and utilization. It includes waste water treatment systems to ensure that pollution control requirements are met.
WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (PG/PG DIP)
It is the scientific study of water for conservation and utilization. It includes wastes water treatment system to ensure that pollution control requirements are met and scarcity of water is efficiently managed.
CIVIL & ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING & ESTIMATION (CER/DIP)
