Election for the various positions of Office Bearers of SRISTICA is conducted on annual basis, in the month of August. The aim of conducting election is to promote the leadership and team building abilities of students, and also to organize various events under the leadership of HOD and Faculty Coordinators.

Special Features of the Program:

  • Industry oriented syllabus with special focus on experimental learning.
  • Seminars, Technical Talks and Interactions with industrial experts.
  • Innovations in examination system with opportunity for personal seeing of evaluated papers.
  • Opportunity to take Structural Engineering / Construction Management Specialization.
  • Placement support and research oriented projects for every student.
  • Focus on smart skill development & training on Civil Engineering practices.

Career Opportunities:

Civil Engineers have opportunities in construction / contracting / consultancy companies, valuation sectors like banks and insurance companies, government departments like Municipalities, Pubic Work Departments, Ministry of Housing, Ministry of Transportation, Electricity and Water Authority Departments, Urban Development or Town Planning Departments, Real Estate Agencies, National Highway Authority, etc. Now a day Civil Engineers are also finding suitable placements in the field of construction materials manufacturing fields and marketing of the civil engineering products.

  • Further Opportunity to pursue M.Tech.
  • Opportunity to appear for GATE/Engineering Services and other competitive Exams.

Scope of Civil Engineering:

Civil Engineering is one of the most traditional branches of engineering deals with the construction of residential, commercial, industrial and civil engineering structures both in Private and Public sector. Civil Engineers design the structures, produce drawings, prepare specifications, bill of quantities, method statements, contract documents, construction planning and schedule of work, quality control / quality assurance of the works, controlling and commissioning of the project. Civil Engineering projects includes construction of roads, buildings, bridges, airports, tunnels, dams, break waters, ware houses, power plants, treatment plants, canals, drains, water supply and sewage systems, harbours, docks, and so many other structures which in both Private and Public sector.
