The Department of Civil Engineering is headed by Mr. B.Satyanarayana with 10 years of teaching experience. He did his B.E in Civil Engineering from S.R.K.R Engineering College, Bhimavaram, Andhra Pradesh and M.Tech in Transportation Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad. Under his leadership the department is strengthen by well experienced and highly qualified teaching faculty and non-teaching staff.

The Department of Civil Engineering of RCCE was established with vision to became the finest centers of advanced research and training in the field of civil engineering and pro-active in industrial interaction and technology.


Civil Engineers build the world’s infrastructure, which encompasses Railways, Highways, Bridges, Water-works, Skyscrapers, Canals, Wharves, Industrial Buildings, Rapid Transit Systems, and Power Plants etc. They deal with the design, construction, maintenance and repair of structures. There are opportunities galore for civil engineers, with new players entering the market and more large-scale developments announced around the globe. In RCCE , the four-year B. Tech program of the Department is dedicated to delivering technically proficient and ethically responsible engineers to the society.


Top notch laboratory resources are essential for the development of a modern day technocrat. The Department boasts of well equipped labs, manned by highly competent staff. The various laboratories that come under the purview of the Department of Civil Engineering are Strength of Materials Lab, Hydraulics Lab, Survey Lab, Geotechnical Engineering Lab, Concrete Technology Lab, Computer Aided Engineering Drawing Lab and Transportation Engineering Lab,GIS&CAD Lab and Engineering Geology Lab.

The Department of Civil Engineering is having well established laboratories catering the needs of B.Tech. programme. Laboratory courses are designed to support theoretical concepts taught. All the laboratories are equipped well. Project works, dissertation works and thesis works are supported by the laboratories. The following are the main laboratories in the department.

SURVEYING LAB   The main objective of surveying lab is to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to understand the measurement techniques and equipment used in land surveying and for preparation of maps and plans showing the relative position of existing features by which areas, volumes and other related quantities are determined.This laboratory course will help the students to understand the theoretical concepts learned in the course of surveying
FLUID MECHANICS LAB   This laboratory provides exposures to students to understand key concepts and fundamental principles together with the assumptions made in their development, pertaining to fluid behaviour both in static and dynamic conditions, deal effectively with practical engineering situations and this lab includes fluid properties and statics,conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy; flow in pipes , open channels pumps and turbine , external flow (lift and drag) ,impacts of jets ,hydraulic jump and calibration of orifice meter and venturimeter . This laboratory course will help the students to understand the theoretical concepts learned in the course of fluid mechanics .
STRENGTH OF MATERIALS LAB   The objective of the strength of materials lab is to demonstrate the basic principles in the area of strength and mechanics of materials and structural analysis to the undergraduate students through a series of experiments. Tests such as standard tension, compression and torsion tests of ferrous, nonferrous metals, and concrete. Includes experimental techniques and application of strain gauges ,dial gauges and study of beams. This laboratory course will help the students to understand the theoretical concepts learned in the course of strength of materials.
CONCRETE TECHNOLOGY LAB   The objective of concrete technology laboratory is to determine the physical properties of building construction materials like cement, fine and coarse aggregate. The tests include determination of specific gravity, fineness, normal consistency, setting times, workability and soundness of cement, fineness modulus of fine and coarse aggregate, bulking of sand ,strength of cement concrete and compaction factor of cement concrete , flexural strength on concrete and non destructive test on concrete. The students will be able to infer the suitability of these materials for construction. They can design the mix, make the specimens and test the same for the strength for comparison with design strength.
ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING LAB   The objective of this laboratory is to determine the qualities of water and waste water. The experiments include the determination of pH, turbidity, conductivity, and impurities in water and BOD, DO and COD of waste water and pollution level of water. The highlight of this laboratory is the spectrophotometer This laboratory course will help the students to understand the theoretical concepts learned in the course environmental engineering and decide whether the water body is polluted or not with reference to the state parameters and estimation of the strength of the sewage in terms of BOD and COD
GIS & CAD LAB   The objective of GIS & CAD lab is to introduce image processing and GIS software, familiarize structural analysis software, understand the process of digitization, creation of thematic mapfrom toposheets and maps, learn to apply GIS software to simple problems in water resources and transportation engineering and learn to analyse 2 D and 3D frame steel tubular truss using structuralanalysis software.and learn to analyse and design retaining wall and simple towers.
GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING LAB   The objective of Geotechnical laboratory is to determine the physical and engineering properties of soil which are required for suitable design of foundations for any structure. Physical properties include specific gravity, moisture content, density and consistency limits namely, liquid, plastic and shrinkage limits of soil. The engineering properties include permeability, consolidation, compressibility, shear strength and bearing capacity of soil. In this laboratory both laboratory and in-situ experiments can be conducted.
