Learn Build Innovate

Civil engineering is one of the oldest streams of engineering in the world. Likewise, School of Civil Engineering is the oldest school at KLE Technological University. Started way back in 1947, it was the only school when the college was started. Since then, the school has grown leaps and bounds into one of the best Civil Engineering Schools in Karnataka. The most important 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 prepare for campus interviews.

Recreational Center (Gymkhana)– If you are an avid sportsperson or a casual health conscious individual, our Gymkhana has the best facilities ranging from sport tracks, badminton courts, tennis courts, cricket practice pitches. The students can participate in various inter-school sports and compete with other schools. Our university always provide all the support to serious athletes and sportspersons who aim to pursue their sports at professional levels.


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 classroom to solve real world problems in out state-of-the-art laboratories, industrial site visits, course projects. We have exclusively designed our mini and minor projects to cater 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 get to participate in many technical events every year in the most awaited technical event of the year – Pleiades. Pleiades is a 3-day national technical event with numerous events like “Structura” where students get to design and build bridge model using ice-cream sticks.

In our school, build not only means building civil engineering structures. Students are encouraged to follow their passions 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 in 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 for everyday problems in the society. Events like Intel Ideation camp and PUPA provides students platforms 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 not only trained to be entrepreneurs but 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.

In our school students get ample opportunities to develop their personalities, professional traits and ethical responsibilities. Students can utilize all the various facilities and centers in our University to become a proficient engineer.

If you want to be one, come join us and see how we are changing the world.
