About Department

Vision :

To be a knowledge centre in civil engineering education, training, research, entrepreneurship and industry outreach services for creating sustainable infrastructure and enhancing quality of life.

Mission :

To generate quality civil engineers with strong technical and managerial skills through creation of conducive environment for creative learning and research in association with stake holders.

Rapidly growing infrastructure demands for highly qualified competent Civil engineers. Considered as one of the oldest engineering disciplines, Civil Engineering involves planning, designing and executing infrastructural development works. The profession deals with a wide variety of tasks that envisages designing, supervision and construction activities of bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, dams, water works, sewage systems, ports, etc. and offer a multitude of challenging career opportunities. With privatization, liberalization, and globalization the scope of Civil Engineering has enhanced many folds.

ADEN (Indian Railway Service of Engineers)

I feel blessed to be alumni of the esteemed institute, where we were always kept on our toes, tested to the breaking point, at the same time the constant encouragement from our professors and their readiness to go an extra mile for the students, made us worthy to face the world outside the boundaries of the college. Thank you for everything.

I passed out the institute in 2010. I have best memories of institute for good teaching, nice teachers, and lively atmosphere for individual growth. Being a non Nagpurian I remember college most for Hostel a home away from home. As the technical knowledge acquired during my BE helped me develop insight for my future and helped me to grab opportunities like working in Delhi Metro and Indian Railways.

The days I spent in Civil EnggDept of Ramdeobaba Engineering College, Nagpur has played a pivotal role in the formation of the person that I am today. I walked into the campus as a young girl with a burning passion to become aproficient engineer. The staff members paved the way to not only to realize my dreams but also introduced me into the world of cutting edge research and technology. Whenever I think of my college days nostalgic memories come flooding in, especially the togetherness I experienced with the staff and fellow students. I wish all the academic staffs and students of this prestigious institution, all the very best! Thank you Civil Dept!!!

My life at RKNEC could be divided into phases of various memorable experiences that have enriched the social, educational and personal facets of my life. My faculty, the beloved Civil Engineering department has been helpful in providing me a platform to grow as an engineer. I will forever remain indebted to them for providing me unconditional support in all my endeavors.
