Right from the establishment of SVIT the Civil Engineering department came into existence since 1997 with an intake of 60. Subsequently master course was started in the field of Structural Engineering in 2011 with an intake of 18. The department is well equipped with the state-of-art laboratories and highly qualified faculties. Majority of them possess doctorate degree from reputed institutes like IITs, NITs etc. The department is also an authorised schedule-I Auditor for Environmental Audit by Gujarat Pollution Control Board. This discipline scales the newer heights every year because of its qualified and eminent faculty members and skilled supporting staff. By organizing various extra and co-curricular events, department has contributed to generation of technologically skilled human force in the national integrity. Numbers of research publications are observed in diversified domains by our eminent faculty members. The department is well known across their excellent performance across the country.
To provide innovative, pragmatic and research oriented Civil Engineering technocrats to cater the needs of modern infrastructural development with global standards and amenities.
