Department of Civil Engineering

G H Patel College of Engineering & Technology, VallabhVidyanagar has started Civil Engineering branch in the academic year 2014-15. In view of the high demand for trained and employable Civil engineers, our Management, Charutar Vidyamandal has decided to start Civil Engineering Branch in this college. AICTE has approved an intake of 60 and the course was affiliated to Gujarat Technological University (GTU), Ahmedabad till academic year 2019-20. From Academic Year 2020-21, the GCET is now one of the constituent colleges under CVM University.

A separate building has been constructed and is named as "Dr. C C Patel &Mrs. Sushilaben Patel Department of Civil Engineering, GCET".The new building has four class rooms, six laboratories, staff rooms, department library and tutorial room as per AICTE criteria. All the basic labs for first year, Mechanics of Solids lab and Concrete lab are located in GCET main building. All other laboratories have been developed for this branch as per the syllabus. A separate computer lab has been developed in the new building with 40 computers with advanced software installations.Highly qualified faculty members having good teaching experience are available in the Department. Various technical events, non-technical events, educational visits, GATE classes, General Aptitude sessions etc. have been organized by the department.
