Civil Engineers play a key role in the whole process, from designing a project, to bringing it to life and maintaining it. Study this course at SSTC and you will be part of its quick-moving and challenging nature. We have a supportive environment that ensures a smooth transition to University. Teaching in small groups challenges you through personal interaction with your lecturers and makes sure you don’t get left behind. A student buddy scheme and an alumni mentoring programme are further examples of initiatives we offer to support your professional development.
Most Civil Engineering courses nowadays include at least the option for an industry placement during the degree. Many students even get paid for the work they do. Here at SSTC, emphasis is laid on student's practical experience and appropriate exposure is provided in the form of Site visits and Vocational trainings. It is fun and challenging and our students can illustrate real management experience at job interviews.
Interested in further study? A lot of undergraduate courses of Civil Engineering offer a master's degree option, and postgraduate options are in abundance. Courses include a variety of options including Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Water Management. SSTC offers two PG courses namely Structural Engineering and Transportation Engineering
Hands on opportunities to learn next to our world-leading researchers, whose work feeds into your degree. We have some of the largest teaching laboratories in Chhattisgarh and we capitalize on this with a comprehensive undergraduate laboratory programme to complement lectures. World leading academics teach our students at all stages in their degree.
Having a degree in Civil Engineering will definitely help students on their way to becoming well paid professionals in the sector. Our placement figures display the significant difference between the starting salary for a SSTC graduate and the starting salary for others in the subject area. Industry Institute Interaction Cell at SSTC does its level best to ensure that the dents have sufficient practical experience which in turn enhances their chances of securing a handsome package at job interviews.
If after studying the subject you find that a career directly related to Civil Engineering is not suitable for you, fear not, because through the teaching process here at SSTC, students learn skills that can be employed to numerous other professions. These include problem-solving, decision-making, analytical and IT. Furthermore, the students' knowledge of Science, Mathematics and Technology is strongly refined.
There are plenty of structured programmes on offer to recent graduates of Civil Engineering. These provide invaluable experience, transform graduates into highly employable individuals and potentially even offer permanent roles. Student's computer proficiency and software skills are honed throughout their SSTCyears which make them industry ready.
Students are encouraged to take part in many research oriented activities organized by the department which include but are not limited to Problem-based Learning, Workshop(s), National Conferences, Expert Talks given by Industry professionals and Technical model competitions. Students, by taking part in such activities, gain a lot of valuable insight into the Corporate world and understand the concept of 'Publish or Perish'. Many alumnus have benefitted from this policy during selections for postgraduate courses at foreign universities where preference was given to SSTC graduates with a track record of research based works.
Apart from the routine of studies, the department offers a steady dose of extra-curricular activities to keep fresh the minds of budding engineers. AAKAAR, the student association of Civil department (SSTC) yearly organizes Badminton, Carrom and Chess Tournaments where the students can exhibit their excellence in sports. Apart from this, the college also organizes an annual fest named SAMVID which includes a variety of events and has an average footfall of almost 5000 persons. Due credits are also provided to students who have represented the college at University/ State/ National level events/ tournaments.
Studying engineering helps you work with good companies. The knowledge gathered during the four year duration at SSTC and your hard work can help you to learn business skills and open your own business start-up that may scale heights of success. Every year, many gems of the department get placed at reputable positions with State of Central Government after clearing the PSC examinations. Students have also shown a good record in other competitive examinations including GATE, GRE and CAT.
