Department of Civil Engineering

About Department

The Department of Civil Engineering is functioning at Govt. College of Engineering Kannur since 1986 The department offers a four-year course leading to the Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering and two-year courses leading to Master’s degree in Computer Aided Structural Engineering (CAS). The department has produced several eminent engineers who have made significant contributions in the planning and execution of Civil Engineering projects in India as well as abroad. In the year 2006 the department was recognized as Research Center in Kannur university. Over four decades, the department has carved its niche in the areas of academics, research, consultancy, collaborative projects, and publications. The department has been actively involved in conducting conferences, workshops, FDP’s, site Visits, project tours and several students related programs to provide a platform for sharing and spreading the latest developments in the field of Civil Engineering.
