The beginnings of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham can be traced to 1994 when a School of Engineering was started in an obscure village named Ettimadai, at the foothills of Bouluvanpatty ranges of the Western Ghats in the Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu.At that time there were 120 students and 13 faculty members. Today, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has five campuses in three different states of India. There is a student population of over 12,000 and faculty strength of nearly 1500. Over 120 UG, PG and doctoral programs are offered.
The four- year Undergraduate programme leading to the Bachelor of Technology in Civil Engineering equips our graduates with fundamental civil engineering knowledge, a broad set of skills, and an inquisitive attitude. The BTech degree program is designed to offer depth in civil engineering technicalities along with the flexibility to select elective courses that meet students’ interests and expose them to the breadth of civil engineering specialties.
