Civil Engineering ( CE )

Overview

Did you know that the construction industry in India is all poised to become the largest employer of the Nation by 2022, with over 72 million employees? Over the next ten years, the country would need approximately 4 million civil engineers on average to cater to the growing real estate and infrastructure demands. But there has been a huge gap between industry expectations and the quality of engineers churned out every year.

With practical training, the Department of Civil Engineering at Velammal Engineering College takes this challenge head-on and has been a pioneer in delivering industry-ready civil engineers since 2007. With NBA and NAAC accreditations as well as ISO certification, the department is now part of an Autonomous institution, affiliated to Anna University. As the world steps up to build sustainable and resilient communities, we know that our engineers would be there to lead the change.

      Testimonial

      At VEC, the Civil Engineering program has offered me many opportunities to expand my knowledge in different fields. You can join workshops and co-curricular classes of your interest to develop a well-rounded skill set. I am a PhD candidate and will be joining as an estimator/ Project Engineer after defending my thesis. Being involved in research at Concrete Lab helped me to develop curiosity in whatever I learn. The basics I learned helped me to clear GATE exam at ease and still allows me to think inter-disciplinary. There are many opportunities to interact with industrialist, eminent professors and successful alumni at different level giving you the ability to learn about state of art technologies and about job opportunities. The guidance and the encouragement by the professors had made me what I am today. I still get back to them whenever I am in doubt. I am forever grateful for my professors in VEC.

      It is great pleasure to be given this opportunity again to thank your kindness of stepping to my rescue by offering me a chance to pursue with my studies. I would like to thank the whole committee of Velammal Engineering College (VEC) for making a difference in my studies and life as a whole. Looking at my background to achieve what I want and reach the place that I am now, VEC did a massive job.

      Ramachandran G | Civil Engineering | 2013-2017 Research Scholar PhD | NIT Trichy

      From walking in as a fresher with no direction and walking out at the end of 4th year with job in hand is probably a best transformation a person can get .It's not only about studies or grades, it's about all round development and that's why my professors from civil department preached and followed. When I look back to those years what a wide spectrum I got good friends environment, symposiums, internships, IPT’s and all other external activities with all icing on the top a job with the campus recruitment I think this will be the best guidance for fresher, My department helped me to develop my competency, taught me how to be autonomous, helped me to manage my emotions and last but not the least my college helped me to define identity. I am blessed to be inherited by the most committed, patient, knowledgeable and caring faculties from the civil department Velammal engineering college made me focused and experiences gained during the course of 4 years have contributed to my professional growth and laid the foundations for my carrier.

      It has been one and half years, since my journey as a student was over. The moment when I decided I have to do Engineering, I never thought anything else other than pursuing graduation in Civil Engineering!! For my career, I chose the right option & yes it is Velammal Engineering College. First thing to mention about is the department and the faculties. We have the best faculties expertise in every individual subject to give a very good experience of learning. We learnt Engineering in each and every small thing we did. The department labs are well equipped and are effectively assisted by very good technicians. The management supported us throughout the journey! The department deserves a special mention. He was persistent and reliable and supportive. We participated in all the technical events across the state and country as well. The faculties showed a lot of interest in equipping us with sharp minds and knowledgeable. Not only supportive, they also encouraged the talents and never failed to exhibit to all around. We are recognized in all the good things which propelled us to travel smarter. Today, having started my career as designer, I am so much proud and grateful to the institution and their support in moulding the career. I once again thank Velammal management for their constant support and encouragement for bringing out the best in me. My heartfelt wishes for the aspiring minds and good luck to all the Engineers who will bloom successfully in future!!

      I have got the wonderful opportunity to work in this company only because of Velammal. Velammal is one the best for the on campus recruitments that happen every year with many companies that come to hire fresher's. It has also set a good record for its placements which has been possible only because of the placement cell that trains students for a better future. My journey in this institution was amazing and I am always thankful for it.

      Pooja R | Civil Engineering | 2015 – 2019 Senior Systems Engineer | Infosys Ltd

      It's hard to summarize the recollections and experience of four years in couple of lines during my B.E. I view myself as extremely fortunate for being a piece of this establishment. There is something persuasive and extraordinary in this climate which made us study and appreciate co-curricular activities. Every one of the teachers are exceptionally useful, and they directed us constantly. Taking part and coordinating occasions gave me an alternate agreeable encounter. The four years has been a remarkable excursion. I had spent my awesome long periods of life in VEC.
