Vidya Academy of Science & Technology
A unit of Vidya International Charitable Trust
Civil Engineering is known to be the mother of all engineering disciplines. It is an all pervasive engineering profession, full of opportunities and challenges. Civil Engineering addresses to all aspects of the infrastructure facilities necessary for modern living such as buildings, transportation systems, water supply and waste water treatments, environmental protection etc. Civil Engineering actually plays the role of nation building. The construction boom in India and abroad provides plenty of opportunities for Civil Engineers. So VAST is trying to mould the students as world class Engineers.
The Civil Engineering Department offers four-year B.Tech programme for 120 students and 2 year M.Tech programme for 24 students. Also there is provision for four lateral entries to the third semester for diploma holders.
The Vision of the Department
Progress through quality education by keeping pace with new challenges in the field of Civil Engineering.
