This is one of the oldest branches of engineering and also referred as Mother of all Engineering Branch. Civil engineering department was introduced in 2012. These are professional practice of designing and developing infrastructure projects. Civil engineers are concerned with designing, building and maintaining man-made products and constructions. This can include Highway, bridges, canals, dams, refinery pipelines, reservoir, airport, tunnels, buildings, and more at both small/Local scales to huge-scaled projects. Civil engineers have a vital role in building the infrastructure for communities as well as developing new real estate and maintaining existing residential, commercial, or government buildings. They ensure that every road, bridge, airport, office building, water supply and sewage plant, and mass transit system is well-planned and executed. Management skills, teamwork and communication skills are particularly important because of the large-scale nature of much of the work that they do. Civil Engineering professionals have wider career opportunities and in the developing world the demand of qualified civil engineers is increasing.

On behalf of all our faculty, staff and students, I would like to welcome you to the Civil Engineering Department of Aravali Institute Of Technical Studies, Udaipur.
Civil engineers are always at work to build the safe and stable habitat for the mankind. As a Head of the department, I am extremely proud of our role in providing high quality education and hands-on experience to our students.
Right from its inception in 2012, the Civil Engineering Department has earned tremendous reputation for qualitative teaching-learning process, meaningful teacher-student interactions, state-of-the-art laboratories and well qualified faculty; positively contributing to the community through teaching, research and consultancy activities.
Students enjoy the regular industrial visits based on their curriculum and scope of the study. Our department is constantly working towards all-round skill development of our students by organizing guest lectures, seminars, workshops, conferences and career service events facilitated by national and international experts.
With a well-planned mission and untiring efforts of our highly committed faculty, staff and students, the department is striving hard to achieve its vision of becoming a center of excellence in the field of technical education and research.
Surveying is used to accomplish all civil engineering works or projects successfully. Surveying plays a vital role in professional practice of any civil engineer and architects. Surveying includes planning, designing and execution of any kind of construction work. The surveying lab provides the basic background to the students regarding the techniques of civil engineering. The apparatuses and instruments available in laboratory are Digital Theodolite, Theodolite, Auto Level, Dumpy Levels, Compass, Plane Tables, etc. surveying laboratory plays an important role in development of skills of civil engineers. Hence, the students are introduced to a course which performs the field exercises on their own.
Geology involves the study of earth and classification of rocks & minerals. The hand specimen available in laboratory provides knowledge of geological and topographical conditions of the earth. The laboratory has a collection of various rocks, minerals, geological charts, charts of folds & faults, charts & maps of contour showing earth layers, and many more.
A typical geotechnical engineering laboratory helps in identifying the engineering behavior of soil. Geotechnical engineering involves the study of principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics. Geotechnical engineering laboratory provides the knowledge about physical and chemical properties of soil and conducts experimental analyses of soil properties. It analyses and experimentally calculates its various aspects like strength, moisture content, plasticity limit, liquid limits and shrinkage limit.The laboratory is equipped to perform all the necessary basic characterization of soils.
Structural engineering laboratory plays an important role for civil engineering students. These laboratories conduct practicals to analyze and design the structure. Mainly internal forces, stresses and deformation of structures under different load conditions can be determined in structural engineering. Structural engineering lab helps in understanding the behavior of physical structures like beams, roof, truss, arches of a structure practically. Different structural apparatus like Two-Hinge Arch, Three- Hinge Arch, Simply Supported Beam, Curved Member of different shape, Pin Joint Truss are available in the laboratory.
Concrete Technology lab conducts the tests and practical on cement and concrete. The laboratory provides study of basic knowledge of concrete. In construction, testing of concrete and concrete aggregates are important elements in obtaining quality work. The laboratory permits the students to test and assess the various fresh and hardened concrete properties that may affect the performance of concrete members.The lab has wide range of various equipments like as Compression testing machine, Slump cone apparatus, Vicat’s apparatus, Sieve Shaker, Water bath with electrical heating arrangement, Set of sieves (of different microns) for fine and coarse aggregates, Weighing balance, cement cube moulds, Tamping rod, Gauging trowel, and many more.
