CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT

Greetings and Welcome to Civil engineering Diploma/Polytechnic College, Jalgaon North Maharashtra University(NMU).

Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. It is divided into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels like public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies. Our institute started this course in 2010 with the aim of fulfilling the requirement of civil industry aiming to encompass the students from Jalgaon, Dhule and Nandurbar District..
