Welcome To the Department of Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering. Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles and its history is intricately linked to advances in understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history.


Civil Engineering in K S Polytechnic was started in the year 2004, with intake of 45 students with well-furnished Laboratories and classrooms. The intake was increased to 60 for next batch. The first batch of students were passed out in the year 2007 with flying colours and Many of them have completed the course with distinctions. Our Alumni are working in prestigious construction companies like ACC, Mantri developers and Shobha developers, Prestige and the recently passed out students are studying in topmost Engineering colleges.

Seminars, guest lectures from academic and industrial experts are organised regularly. Frequent Industry Visits, Site Visits are conducted to bridge the academic curriculum gap with respect to civil engineering subjects.

Internships / Trainings

Internships are foundational in preparing students for the workforce and providing opportunities after graduation. Most employers seek career-ready college graduates who have been equipped with prior experiences and skills in a given field. An internship is important because it can present you with new skills and opportunities that student would not receive otherwise. Interns not only gain technical knowledge within the industry of their choice, but they also learn how to interact with professionals in a workplace setting, and develop essential soft skills like time management, organization, adaptability, problem-solving and teamwork. An internship is the best way to gain work experience as a student. Internships give you the valuable practical experience needed along with theoretical knowledge. Employers often note that there is a disconnect between the requirements of the industry and the academics. This gap can be bridged by an internship and pitch you as an ideal candidate.


Final year project is one of the most important aspects of Polytechnic. Final year project will be the first exposure to the full rigour of Engineering practice. It is essential that students learn from this exposure and practise all of the engineering methodologies involved. It is particularly important that students learn not just to apply what they know, but to apply it with judgement.


Mini projects for diploma students give an edge over the race of recruitment to work hard to ensure a good career. By taking up mini projects, students can gain practical knowledge. The technical skills can only be improved by taking up mini projects. Students become more productive.
