The Government of India is emphasizing on up-gradation of infrastructure by focusing on schemes such as development of Smart Cities, Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), National Highways Development Project (NHDP), and Setu Bharatam. With a view to contribute in such initiatives of the Government, by developing technical qualified human resource and state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities, the Department of Civil Engineering at IITRAM started along with the inception of the Institute in the year 2013. Presently, the Department offers three academic programmes leading to B.Tech. in Civil Engineering, M.Tech. in Civil Engineering (with specialization in Urban Infrastructure) and Ph.D. in all major Civil Engineering sub-specializations.

The Department is committed to its students to provide quality teaching and research opportunities directed towards their successful career in International and National Industries/Institutions, Public and Private sectors, and enable them to qualify various competitive examinations. Since, Civil Engineering is the professional engineering discipline that constitutes the backbone of the infrastructural and economic development of the society, the Department is well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to fulfill requirements of both academics and cutting edge research. The well qualified and experienced faculty members in the Department also aspire to share their expertise for consultancy services and involve in the R&D activities in the field of soil mechanics, roads and building, traffic engineering, water resources, structure, and environmental engineering.
