Civil engineering is a professional Engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, earth science, atmospheric sciences, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles, and its history is intricately linked to advances in the understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history. Because civil engineering is a wide ranging profession, including several separate specialized sub-disciplines, its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields.
The Civil Engineering Department of JIT started in the year in 2004. In last 14 years, the department has earned a high reputation. Nearly 1000 graduates of this department are serving the profession today around the nation and globe. The department extends consultancy and testing services to the industry in different projects of national and state importance. The faculty members are known for their outstanding contribution to the discipline. A good number of highly educated teachers are working in this department giving their best to our students. Our students are working at present in different innovative projects as department has sophisticated and highly equipped laboratory facilities. It also houses different audio-visual facilities as modern aids of teaching. Department has separate Computer Lab (Computer-aided Structural Design and Drawing Laboratory) for practicing the students the modern software of Civil Engineering.
