Dr. Swapna Channagoudar

I am very much delighted to welcome you to Smt. Kamala and Sri Venkappa M. Agadi College of Engineering and Technology, Lakshmeshwar, and the Department of Civil Engineering.

Civil engineers are the actual creators of modern world. Civil engineering deals with design and construction of the things that we need to function proficiently as a society. This includes roads, bridges, and many other essential parts of the community.

Department of Civil Engineering functions with a motivation of developing the professional and personal skills of students, which make possible for them to perform admirably as well-known engineers in society. We continue to organize and guide students for a variety of competitive exams and interviews so that they can perform better and make a career in the chosen fields. Real-world problems are blended into the curriculum, and these are taught by experts from industry in addition to guest lectures. Our focal point is to efficiently guide our students as civil engineers who can serve society proficiently, collaboratively, and ethically as planners, designers, constructors, and operators of the built environment.
