Civil Engineering is a broad field of engineering that deals with the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of different structures like buildings, roads, bridges, canals, dams, water supply, and treatment systems, etc. The Civil Department at Vaagdevi College of Engineering was started in the year 2013 with an annual intake of 60 undergraduate students which was subsequently raised to the present annual intake of 180 students. The Civil department at VCE also offers one PG Course in Structural Engineering with an annual intake of 24. We are among the best colleges for civil engineering with state of the art lab facilities in the areas of Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Hydraulics and Surveying.
