The discipline of Civil Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar focuses on a multifaceted growth of students and is designed to equip them not only with the core theoretical and practical fundamentals of the discipline, but also evolve them into confident individuals, ready to make an impact on whatsoever profession (industrial work, research, entrepreneurship) they choose to pursue. Currently, the department offers B. Tech, M.Tech. and Ph.D. degrees with specializations in Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, and Water Resources.

The students are offered a mixed blend of top-class theoretical, experimental, and design courses, such as Advanced Soil Mechanics, Finite Element Method, Continuum Mechanics, Remote Sensing of Land & Water Resources, Advanced Structural Analysis, Structural Dynamics, Stability and Control, Advanced Foundation Design, Mitigation of Design & Construction Challenges, and Structural Engineering in Practice.

Currently, there are nine faculty members in Civil Engineering. Their research interests include Structural and Geotechnical Aspects of Earthquake Engineering, Passive Structural Control, Health Monitoring, Dynamics of Soils and Structures, Uncertainty Quantification, Computational Mechanics, Nonlinear Structural Analysis, Stability and Large Deformations of Structures, Sustainable Materials, Material Characterization, Strain Localization using DIA Technique, Large Scale Hydrological Modeling, Global Food and Water Security, Climate Variability and Climate Change, and computational and experimental investigation of Submerged Membrane Bioreactors.
