B.Tech Civil Engineering

B.Tech in Civil Engineering Distance Education

B.Tech in Civil Engineering is an undergraduate engineering Course. Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that contracts with the design, construction & maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like bridges, roads etc. The engineering course deals with planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and functioning infrastructures while protecting the public and environmental health as well as growing existing infrastructure. The course also teaches the development of improved infrastructural facilities to tolerate an eco-friendly environment.

What is it About?

Civil engineering is one of the old engineering course in the world. Civil engineering, until a few decades back, was a much sought after course among Indian students, but lately has been suspended due to the software and IT boom. However with the growing need to develop and maintain India’s infrastructure.


10+2 with PCM (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) is the basic condition to take admission in B.Tech Civil Engineering course. Percentage mandatory in qualifying exam is 50% for most of the engineering institutes.


The duration of B.Tech Civil Engineering is four years(4 Year).
