CIVIL ENGINEERING Design major transportation projects Major focuses on the latest developments in the design


The department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2011 with an intake of 60. Eight batches of students nearly 480 have successfully completed their graduation so far from the department. Our strength is our faculty. We have twelve dedicated faculty members and three supporting staff members. In 2015 the department has also started Master of Technology (M. Tech) programme with initial intake of 24 students with Transportation Engineering as specialization.

The department has nine physical laboratories to fulfill the needs of academic and industrial requirements including are Concrete, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering , Environmental Engineering , Survey , Geology , Hydraulic Engineering , Computer aided engineering , GIS & CAD lab, Strength of materials, FM & HM Lab and Irrigation Design and Drawing. All laboratories are equipped with state of the art equipment to suit the emerging technologies and career opportunities


  • The department of civil engineering was established in the year 2011 and is one of the finest and modest department at St. Ann’s College of Engineering and Technology-Chirala. The department of civil engineering is known for its hard working and dedicated faculty. The department has 100% enrollment for the current academic year. Apart from teaching the department has research, consulting scope and envision of future advancement. 

    The Department Head Prof. Ch. Pavan Kumar B. Tech, M.S, (Ph.D.), has seven years of teaching experience, five years of research experience before joining SACET-Chirala. He has worked in academic, industry fields (highway planning and operations, traffic signal design, school safety studies, traffic demand modelling, aviation planning and designing). He has held position such as Lecturer, Research assistant, Workshop Coordinator, Design engineer. His research interests are accident studies, traffic operations and planning, remote sensing and GIS. He has worked extensively on traffic simulation and modeling.

    The department encourages students to partake in sports, extra and co curricular activities. It is paramount for student developed in communication and leadership skills.
