Outcome Based Education
Civil Engineering at BIoE endeavors to follow the Outcome Based Education for all the UG and PG programme offered under the choice based credit system (CBCS) curriculum. It is aimed to achieve the outcomes in terms of Remembering, Understanding, Applying, Analysing, Evaluating and Create at the end of the programme. This entails a regular methodology for ascertaining the attainment of outcomes, and benchmarking these against the Program Educational Objectives (PEOs), Program Outcomes (POs), Program Specific Outcomes (PSOs) consistent with the objectives of the programme.
To be an ideal centre for providing quality technical education in Civil Engineering by upholding ethical standards.
To promote human values among students and ensure competency and exposure in the emerging areas of Civil Engineering by following a learner-centric approach that focuses on quality, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial skills.
To develop abilities and talents, leading to creativity and productivity in Civil professional and industrial field beyond the curriculum and thus enhance the employability skill.
To promote lifelong self learning abilities for gaining multidisciplinary knowledge through projects and industrial training to meet the social needs.
To sensitize students towards social issues and to introduce them to professional ethics
Engineering Graduates will be able to:
The following are the Program Outcomes of Civil Engineering Graduate
Engineering knowledge - Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and software tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
The engineer and society: Apply reasoning in formed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.

Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
Proficiency in Civil Engineering problem identification, formulation,analysis,design and excecution ,optimizing the cost,time, quality and safety using appropriate methods and tools
Enhancing the employability skills of the students for qualifying National level and competitive examinations and to become an entrepreneur to support the society with solutions to various Civil engineering problems focussing on sustainable development and upholding professional ethics
Civil engineers conceive, plan, design, construct, operate and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in public as well as in the private sector.
Civil Engineering can be termed as a broad field encompassing a diverse collection of specializations and projects. The journey from creating living spaces to transforming them into mega structures, tall buildings, resilient communities, smart cities, creating smart buildings, using smart materials etc to name a few will be possible only with a degree in Civil engineering.
The versatility of this branch is not limited to ground. Whether you are working under the ground or above the ground…. Civil Engineering is everywhere
In Government Sector
The versatility of the Civil Engineering branch exists in the fact that it has ample opportunities for all. Equal numbers of opportunities are available for Civil engineers both in government as well as in the private sector. Various fields in government sector offer jobs for civil engineers:Tamil Nadu Municipal Corporations, TWAD, Public Works Department(PWD), , Metro Rail, National Highway Authority of India, Indian Oil Corporation, State Industrial Development Corporation, Public Works Department, Central Public Works Department, Border Roads Organization, Military Engineering Services, Airport Authority of India, Indian Air Force, Railways, Irrigation & Flood control department, Public Health Engineering department, National Hydro-electric Power Corporation, National Thermal Power Corporation, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Defence Research and Development Organisation, RITES, DRDO, Pollution Control Boards, Building and Construction department of organizations and the list is endless.
Career in Private Sector
In private sector, jobs for Civil Engineers are offered in construction and design. A Civil Engineer with a good knowledge of CAD Software, Finite Element Analysis, and along with other skill-set fits perfectly in an organization..
A large number of Civil Engineers are hired in private sector i.e L&T, Tata Projects Limited, Gammon India, Gammon Infrastructure Projects Limited, Omaxe, Supertech, Shapoorji & Pallonji Group, GMR Group, Infrastructure Lease & Financial Services, Hindustan Construction Company, Afcons Infrastructure Limited, Gammon India Limited, Reliance Infrastructure, Ashoka Buildcon, B L Kashyap & Sons Ltd, Consolidated Construction Consortium Ltd, Essar Group, IRCON International Ltd, Jaypee Group, Nagarjuna Construction Company Ltd, National Building Construction Corporation Limited, Punj Lloyd etc to name a few.
Civil Engineers thus play a pivotal role in shaping the economy of a country. A Civil Engineer has an upper edge over engineers from other branches as they have equal opportunities in government as well as in the private sector. They can start their own ventures of consulting or construction at career commencement or after gaining a few years of professional experience.
The Department of Civil Engineering has incepted in Bethlahem Institute of Engineering in 2011 and has grown into a full-fledged department with specializations in all the major areas of Civil Engineering. The departmental activities embrace Planning, Design, Construction and Management. Our department provides theoretical education along with practical education through various labs. We pay special attention to impart technical education in socially and educationally to the knowledge seekers of the department.
