Civil Engineering is all about finding solutions to help shape a perfect world around us. Civil Engineering is not restricted to building structures that inspire awe, rather it spreads out to diverse domains like Structural Engineering, Surveying, Environmental Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Water Resources Engineering and Transportation Engineering. There is a huge scope for Civil Engineering in any developing nation.

The Department of Civil Engineering of NIT Sikkim was established in the year 2013. The department offers 4-year B.Tech. program in Civil Engineering with a current intake of 30 students. The curriculum of the Civil Engineering Department is designed to produce good practicing engineers who will prove to be worthy of employment in various industries. The Department currently has four laboratories namely Surveying Laboratory, Material Testing Laboratory, Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory & Environmental Engineering Laboratory. The Department is planning to offer M. Tech courses in different fields of Civil Engineering. The Department is also planning to start Ph.D. program soon. The pass out students of the Department are working in various government sectors and reputed private sectors. Along with that, significant number of students are also pursuing higher education in various fields of Civil Engineering. The Civil Engineering department is actively engaged in research areas that deal with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Faculty members of the Civil Engineering Department are actively associated with the construction and maintenance activities of NIT Sikkim Campus. The Department also contributes in the landscaping, gardening and environmental protection of the Institute campus.
