Polytechnic Civil Engineering

Diploma in Civil Engineering (DCE)

Civil engineering is the second oldest field of Engineering. This field focuses on design, planning, construction and maintenance of physically built as well as the natural environment. It is a very diverse field, consisting of various sub-branches such as Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Town/City Planning, Construction Engineering, etc. Civil engineers design and construct dams, roads, buildings, canals, etc.
Our 3-year Diploma Program not only teaches our students how to design buildings and bridges but also to effectively study the impact of the same on the environment. This will help in moulding professional engineers abiding by sustainable engineering work ethics setting us apart from the rest of the civil engineering colleges. Students are also given exposure to areas that enables them to pick up the skills to become highly skilled professionals. We up-skill them to take up larger projects that require expertise in estimation and costing, which plays a very important role in planning any activity.
Acharya Polytechnic is regarded as one of the best diploma colleges in Bangalore offering diploma in Civil Engineering courses. Here we empower students to start their own construction company, through our incubation centre or help them get placed through our various training and placement drives.


Duration : 3 Years

Eligibility : Pass in SSLC / 10th / HSC or equivalent from any recognised Board or Council with an aggregate of 35%.
