The department of Civil Engineering came into existence along with the college in the year 1979.It has an intake of 90 students. The department is currently headed by Dr. A.G. Nataraj and supported by a highly qualified staff.

The B.I.T Civil Engineering established in 1979 department is one of the first departments established by the college. Under the able guidance of Dr. A.G. Nataraj it has committed itself to the proclaimed pledge of producing quality civil engineering professionals by the virtue of its very competent faculty and state-of- the-art laboratories. Ever since the Civil Engineering department came into being it has dedicated itself towards the never ending quest for knowledge and contributing with vigour in the development of Karnataka and the country as a whole.

The field of Civil Engineering has been growing very fast in the recent years as we have now realized the importance of infrastructure development. The department is committed to produce Civil Engineers which would usher India into a utopia of development. For the realization of this dream the students are prepared to perform, even in the most hostile environment.

The department has come good on its commitment towards research and development by recently introducing the master's degree courses in the field of structural engineering. The masters program is likely to produce researchers which would lead us to new developments in Civil Engineering.
