About the Department


We welcome you to the website of Civil Engineering department at Indore Institute of Science and Technology, IIST was established in 2003 and the Civil Engineering Program is part of the institution since 2012 to offer a Bachelor’s Degree. We are young but fast-growing department with an intake of 60 students. We take great pride in developing skilled civil engineers who are industry ready to cater the needs of modern era. Our department proudly holds dedicated and motivated faculty members with a number of specific sub-disciplines viz. Structural Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Construction Management. The Department of Civil Engineering with its multifaceted faculty continues to maintain and cultivate its strong links with the infrastructural industry, academic and research institutions both within and outside the State. On a daily basis, civil engineers are touched by many aspects of human life and contribute their knowledge and services in society. From the structures of our homes to designing drinking water / irrigation and environmentally efficient transportation systems or water supply systems, we live in one way or another and are impressed by the work and dedication of civil engineers. Our activities and missions fall into three categories: Teaching, Research and Service. Our students are being prepared to be socially responsible leaders in the field of civil engineering with 360 grooming and holistic development, whether in R & D, higher studies, or to practice as professionals. We encourage you to visit our Campus or explore our website to learn more about the student-centered learning environment to meet global needs.

ICT Support For Learning

Special Interest Groups (SIG’s)

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of a physically and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings and railways. Emerging trends in civil engineering are building information modeling, earthquake resistant design, smart building, sustainable development, advanced materials and more. It is essential to self-learn and research into these emerging trends. For which special interest groups are formed in our department

Self-education is inspired in these special interest groups of the department. Various resources related to student interest have been provided at SIG. It is patronized by teaching faculties and senior students to provide them the opportunity to work in teams. Self-interest and self-learning are motivated in this SIG (Special Interest Group). The CE department has four SIGs through which we offer certified skills courses on the latest research areas and technologies


Students who wish to become independent structural advisors are members of this SIG. Under this, the students of SIG are trained on all professional software of structural design. STAD Pro, SAP, Etabs etc. Students are gaining complete conceptual knowledge of structural design and getting ready to provide solutions to the construction industry


This SIG is providing complete building planning and knowledge about national building code and municipal byelaws and provide hands-on training to students on all the software used in this field. The whole concern of this SIG is to enable students to provide professional counselling in this field independently and innovatively.


SIG students are working in it:

  1. Statistics of the use of renewable and non-renewable resources used in construction industries.
  2. Case study of construction work done in the field of permanent construction.
  3. EIA Case Study for Construction Projects.
  4. To publish research papers related to low cost building materials and these researches along with research in the field of sustainable.
  5. Energy efficient buildings planning.

This SIG prepares students for advanced research in the field of sustainable development and prepares students to offer professional consultation to the industry regarding the use of construction materials in different situations currently.


The goal of the institution is to impart knowledge about rainwater harvesting to the students. SIG focuses more on project-based learning in addition to preparing students to face the obstacles that typically come up when applying their technical knowledge. SIG works continuously in projects with students in this domain. Projects include harvesting of roof water, surface water and stormwater which is collected during the rains.


Students will work as industry requires by showing their skills in preparing quantity estimates for building, roads and canal structures as per specification and they can also draft detailed specification and work out Rate Analysis for all works related to Civil Engineering projects. Students will be able to make the construction budgets and schedule the activities related to projects.

It is an initiative of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under the National Mission on Education through ICT. The Department of Mechanical Engineering conducts virtual labs programs organized by different IITs across the country
