Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering



The vision of the department is to create competent civil engineers who will contribute innovatively in both public and private sectors, serve community, pursue higher studies and take up the challenges of cutting edge technologies.


The mission of the department is to impart student-centric innovative education to transform the students into world class civil engineers. The department will ensure that the diploma students are employable, good entrepreneurs, competent scholars and creative designers bringing excellence in the areas of construction technologies, global infrastructural development, maintaining sustainable environment and improving quality of life.

Civil Engineering, the oldest traditional engineering discipline, provides excellent opportunity to build, save and change the face of the country. The 150 year old discipline has contributed largely to build new India giving one of the largest global networks of roads and rail route, marvelous bridges, highest railway embankment, underground railways, tunnels, industrial and high rise buildings, multipurpose river valley projects, and developing commendable sanitation, irrigation and water supply projects.

Recognizing the increasing market demand for the discipline for furtherance of development, Contai Polytechnic has set up the Civil Engineering Department since its inception.

The Students are taken rigorously through the following courses, theoretical and practical, so that they become courageous, competitive and savvy and are capable of accepting the challenges to do, be and make in the life long process of unlearning and learning:

HOD Message

I take this opportunity to familiarise the Civil Engineering Department of our Institute. The Civil Engineering Department was established in 1991 along with the inception of the Institute and has been playing a key role in transforming the vision of the Institute into reality. The Department has taken a very positive and active role for the last two decades.

The syllabus of the Civil Engineering Department has been designed by West Bengal State Council of Technical Education in such a way that, a student after passing out, can immediately become useful as a construction engineer / entrepreneur and fulfils the demand of construction industry. As an out put our so many pass out students are working in Central, State Govt. and Different prestigious industries like L&T, Gammon, Simplex, Sapoorji & Paloonji, Afcons Ltd. NCC etc. Moreover most of the Nirman Sahayak working in Purba Medinipur District under P&RD, Govt. of West Bengal passed out from our institution.

The Department has developed highly equipped laboratories in the areas of i) Structural Engineering, ii) Concrete Technology, iii) Geotechnical Engineering , iv) Environmental Engineering and v) Material Laboratory.

In addition to the above the Department at present possesses i) latest Survey Instruments, ii) very good Computer facility including latest software on CADD. For the last few years the thrust was towards the building up of the infrastructures of the Department. From now and onwards the thrust will be towards advancement and sophistication. Our aim will always be to ensure that present and future students will enjoy all facilities that one would get at any other Institute of National repute.

I take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to our present and future students.

With best wishes.
