Diploma Programme in Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the planning, design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as buildings, roads, dams, canals, effluent treatment plants etc. Aim of a Civil engineering fraternity is to improve the standard of life of human beings by providing physical means for human activities. The existence of creations of Civil engineer can be felt from building, roads, dams, canals and all structures. It is one of the oldest discipline addressing basic needs of water, shelter and food. It grooms civilization by providing the basic infrastructure for the businesses, industries, and organizations dealing with health, education and entertainment. The Civil Engineering Department of CWIT started in the year 1957. The Department conducts Diploma in Civil Engineering since its inception. The Department had conducted for employed diploma holders, the Savitribai Phule Pune University’s Part Time Degree Program in Civil Engineering from 1983 to 2014.
