Learn Build Innovate

Civil engineering is one of the oldest streams of engineering in the world. Likewise, the School of Civil Engineering is the oldest school at KLE Technological University. It started in 1947, and since then, the school has grown by leaps and bounds into one of the best Civil Engineering Schools in Karnataka. The most crucial factor for this growth has always been our motto to Learn, Build and Innovate.


Learning inside the classroom and hands-on learning outside is the key of learning the fundamentals of civil engineering in the school. The process is well defined-

Engineering Fundamentals –> Civil Engineering Fundamentals –> Civil Engineering Core –> Civil Engineering Electives

Our School believes in overall development of our students. Equal emphasis is given to co-curricular, extra-curricular and sport activities. Numerous activity centers, student chapters and a rec-center (Gymkhana) provides the best of the opportunities for the same.

Student Chapters – SOCE (Society of Civil Engineers), ICI (Indian Concrete Institute).

Vikas– To develop logical, aptitude and comprehension skills in students.

Placement Activities– Mock interviews, group discussions to help students prepare for campus interviews.



Civil Engineering is all about building structures – residential, commercial, industrial, sustainable, and eco-friendly. We encourage hands-on learning to apply the theoretical concepts learned in the classroom to solve real-world problems in our state-of-the-art laboratories, industrial site visits, course projects. We have exclusively designed our mini and minor projects to cater to this need of the students. The students will get a chance to experience the life cycle of a project, right from design to construction and maintenance. They will participate in many technical events every year in the most awaited technical event of the year – Pleiades. The Pleiades is a 3-day national technical event with numerous events like “Structura,” where students design and build bridge models using ice-cream sticks.

In our school, build does not only mean building civil engineering structures. Students are encouraged to follow their passion of digital photography, movie-making, etc., at our Media Center, where numerous workshops are arranged for students. Students can also learn foreign languages like German and Japanese on the campus.



Gone are the days when engineers were only proficient in technicalities. Today’s world expects innovation. Our University fosters and promotes innovative ideas in students. Engineering Exploration Lab in the first year allows students to work on innovative solutions to everyday problems in society. Events like Intel Ideation camp and PUPA allow students to showcase their innovations and acquire funding for product development. CTIE (Center for Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship) is the first of its kind center in Karnataka, where students are trained to be entrepreneurs and provide the logistics to be one. Many of our students have been budding entrepreneurs in this center. We have a state-of-the-art CMS (Center of Material Science) where young scientists can work on nano-materials and nano-composites and their applications in civil engineering.

Students get ample opportunities to develop their personalities, professional traits, and ethical responsibilities in our school. Students can utilize all the various facilities and centers in our university to become proficient engineers.
