About Conference

Conference aims to raise awareness about Sustainable Development in Civil Engineering and Environment, and encourage students to discuss and design solutions to counter them. It is a Two-day national conference to educate and engage engineering students on issues of sustainability and how they can tackle it within their engineering career and everyday life.

The objectives of the conference are to be met by providing delegates who share their passion for creating a sustainable future, and conducting Technical Contests for the Participants.

This conference is highly inter-disciplinary and encompasses all the key aspects of sustainable development and its intrinsic relationship to Civil

The Institution

Rajalakshmi Engineering College, an autonomous institution affiliated to Anna University, Chennai, was established in the year 1997 under the aegis of Rajalakshmi Educational Trust whose members have had consummate experience in the fields of education and industry. The College has grown from strength to strength in the last 20 years and progressing towards Excellence in Engineering Education, Research and Development. Started with 3 Under Graduate programmes in Engineering with an annual intake of 180 students in 1997, the College presently offers 13 Under Graduate and 10 Post Graduate programmes, with an annual intake of 1950 students. The approval of AICTE and affiliation of the Anna University for such a progressive intake is a standing testimony for the continuous growth of the college over the years. 9 of our Departments are recognized as Research Centers of Anna University to conduct Ph.D. and M.S. (By Research) programmes and many scholars have obtained Ph.D. through these research centres.

Ours is one among the few Colleges to receive accreditation for nine Under Graduate Engineering programmes from the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), New Delhi, as soon as attaining the eligibility to apply for accreditation. The College is accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with 'A' Grade. The college has also secured 12(b) status from UGC

The Department of Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering Department was started in the year 2009 with an intake of 60 students. The intake has been increased to 120 students in the year 2014. The department has an eminent faculty team with specialization in Structural Engineering, Soil Mechanics, Environmental Engineering, Irrigation and Water resources, Construction Technology and Transportation Engineering. Our students have excelled in the Anna University exams and are securing Anna University ranks every year. The department is accredited with NBA.The department has been sanctioned with two sponsored research projects by DST-SERB &DRDO-NRB utilising this fund we have established state of the art research lab on “Sustainable Construction Material Lab”.
