Rajadhani Institute of Engineering and Technology

Civil engineering is perhaps one of the oldest branches of engineering and primarily deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. Advances in this area have brought many specializations like environmental engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, urban engineering, materials engineering, survey and construction engineering etc. The students normally have a conceptual understanding of space and its utilization. The stress of the programme is in developing fluency in mathematics, physics, instrumentation, computers, management and economics. Civil engineers focus on design, construction and maintenance.

In today’s world the role of civil engineering is changing as issues of housing, urban development, planned cities and construction using alternative materials for cost reduction and appropriate usage of environment friendly materials etc gain attention. The students at RIET are inculcated into the scientific aspects of civil engineering with focus on the social demands and protection of environment.

The department offers a Post-Graduate programme (M.Tech) in Geotechnical Engineering, with an annual intake of 18 students. A well equipped laboratory is also established exclusively for the PG students, which facilitates fundamental soil testing and advanced geosynthetic testing. The laboratory is capable of accommodating the diverse forms of research works in the field of Geotechnical Engineering.The lecture sessions and thesis works are guided by eminent faculty members.


The Dept of Civil Engineering,  RIET  offers a friendly and welcoming environment for its students. During study at the department, the students are encouraged to get hands-on experience in the real world problems through internships and projects with reputed organizations. In their curriculum they are encouraged to take up mini projects to supplement theoretical knowledge with practical experience. These projects enable them to understand the relevance of working in a group and also help them to realize the finer aspects and importance of teamwork. We are confident that our current curriculum has enabled overall development of budding engineers to come up to the expectations of the rapidly changing world. The curriculum is taught by distinguished faculty having  academic excellence and real world experience with dedication and commitment.

With this brief introduction, I welcome you to be a part of our journey towards being a world class centre of excellence in education, training and research.
