Development of a country requires first the In fractural facilities which starts with Civil Engineering work. In view of the rapid development of our country large scale construction work is being taken up. This requires large number of Civil Engineers. When the education sector was opened up to Private Parties, large number of engineering Colleges were opened. These colleges opened mostly computer and Electronics related Branches. As a result there was an acute shortage of Civil Engineers in the country in general and in the state of Odisha in particular. In order to fill this gap, Civil Engineering Branch was opened in this College in the year 2007-08 with a small intake of 30. The first batch of Civil Engineers passed out in 2010-11. The intake have now increased to 60 from 2012-13.

|Civil engineering society|
|In addition to the curricular activities, there is a Civil Engineeringf Society formed by the students in 2010-11 for conducting non curricular academic activities like conducting Quiz Competition, Seminars and other academic related events. This is managed by an Executive Committee whose ex-officio President is the HOD of the Department. It has a Faculty Advisor and Secretary, Jt. Secretary, Treasurer and Executive Committee Members are the students from all classes of Civil Engineering. It also arranges Functions to welcome the freshers and to bid farewell to the Final year students every year.
The Society brings out an Annual magazine CESVISION since 2010 – 11, to which articles in Civil Engineering are contributed by the students and Staff.
