Shelter and Sustainable Environment are the basic needs for all living beings. Civil Engineering takes the pride of providing these basic needs and hence called as the “Mother of all Engineering”. Civil Engineering is the backbone for almost all the infrastructure development. A country’s development is based on infrastructural facilities like buildings, basic amenities, transportation, Communication and IT enabled services. Civil Engineers play a key role in developing and maintaining these systems. The rising competition and increase in population leads to the necessity of sophisticated transport systems, high rise buildings, energy efficient systems etc. Hence a Civil Engineer has to equip himself with innovative thinking, modern technology and problem solving skills by keeping in mind the environmental sustainability. We, the Department of Civil Engineering at Velammal College of Engineering and Technology prepare our graduates to cater the needs of stakeholder at par with the growing challenges of the society.
