HOD's Desk



Professor & HOD- Department of CIVIL.

  • The department of civil Engineering in SACET, Chirala was established in the year 2011 with an initial intake of 60. Six batches of students nearly 300 have successfully completed their graduation so far from the department. Our strength is our faculty. We have twelve faculty members and 3 supporting staff members.

    The average experience of the faculty in the department is about 5 years. The department has eight physical laboratories viz., Concrete laboratory, Transportation Engineering laboratory, Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory, Environmental Engineering laboratory, Survey laboratory, Geology Laboratory, Hydraulic Engineering Laboratory, Computer aided design Laboratory. Our department has well established Laboratories with advanced equipment like ultrasonic pulse velocity machine, rebound hammer, total station and costing up to 9 Lakhs till now.

    Many students got placements in civil engineering core companies and IT companies. Some of the students are pursuing their post-graduation in reputed institutions in India and abroad in every batch. And the department has introduced Transportation Engineering in M.Tech. in 2015 with an initial intake 24 seats.
