3-Year Diploma in Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is one of the ancient Engineering disciplines that deals with design, construction, maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. To ensure safe, secure and modern structure for human rehabilitation becomes one of the core objectives of Civil Engineering Domain. At its core, it deals with 3 of the natural resources available such as Air, Water & Land extensively.

The fast growing India’s population presents innumerable problems in personal and public housing & commercial complex systems. This coupled with growing environment & green house gas laws bring unimaginable level of complexity to today’s construction
industry. Secondly, growing population & economy of India brings urbanization and enabled construction industries grow multifold in last 2 decades. The demand for Civil Engineers is on rise and soon to become major choice for any aspirants to have wonderful
career. It’s a powerful career choice that demands good problem-solving skills and an eye for detail. The job itself has a complete construction site & soil focus.

The Diploma in Civil Engineering at Chitkara Polytechnic will focus on:

  • Construction Engineering (Construction management)
  • Public Health Engineering (Fresh & Waste Water Engineering)

Around the world, changing geographical demographics are putting pressure on the planet’s most precious resource – WATER. This is increasing the demand for skilled engineering technologists, who have specialized knowledge and expertise in water resource management. How our society uses water in the years ahead will impact every sector—business, industry, agriculture, recreation and government.

India has 16% of world’s population and has just 4% of fresh water resources of the available water footprint on earth. In recent years, India has emerged as one of the fastest growing economies of the world. Most projections suggest that India is heading towards becoming the worlds 3rd largest economy by 2050. Water is one variable that could halt India’s march to economic greatness. By 2050, India might have only half the water it needs. If you want to make a difference in combating this pressing global problem, as innovators of water- friendly products, systems and services to improve quality of life, Our program in Civil Engineering will put you on the right track.

Our 3-Year Diploma in Civil Engineering also prepares you to pursue further studies leading to undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications from reputed local and foreign universities.
