The Civil Engineering Program at SRM University-AP offers students a challenging and rewarding career in industry, private consulting, and government sectors. The holistic curriculum is designed to meet several educational objectives and teaches students not only to analyse and design a breadth of structural and environmental systems, but also to successfully navigate the management-related issues that arise during a project. The programme will feature a fusion of lectures and lab works, and due emphasis will be laid on working within a team, as this is considered a key skill for anyone pursuing Civil Engineering careers. Students are encouraged to take the common engineering courses which deal with basic concepts in mechanics, hydraulics, geotechnics (using knowledge of the earth's crust to solve construction problems), materials science and statistical analysis. The Civil Engineering curriculum will have opportunities to participate in field trips which train the students in professional Civil Engineering practice enhancing their managerial and entrepreneurial skills.
