Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) was established in 1961 as one of the RECs for imparting technical education in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. In the year 1983-84 the Under Graduate programmes in Electronics Engineering were introduced and in the year 1988-89 the UG programmes in Computer Engineering and Production Engineering was started. In the year 1995-96, UG programme in Chemical Engineering was introduced. In exercise of the powers conferred by section 3 of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Act, 1956, the Central Government on the advice of the University Grants Commission, has declared the Sardar Vallabhbhai Regional College of Engineering & Technology (SVREC), Surat to Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT), Surat with status of “Deemed University” with effect from 4th December 2002. The Institute has been granted the status of ‘Institute of National Importance’ w.e.f. Aug. 15, 2007. At present, the Institute is offering Six UG Programmes, Twenty One PG Programmes and Three M.Sc. Five Years Integrated Programmes including doctoral programme in all above branches.

Department of Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering came into existence in the year 1961. The Civil Engineering Department is one of the founding departments of the Institute. The department has grown tremendously over the years, especially after the conversion of the institute to an NIT, and is now one of the best Civil Engineering Departments among NITs in the country. The department has 44 qualified and dedicated faculty members with specialization in various areas. The activities of the department are carried out under seven different sections namely Environmental Engineering, Urban Planning, Water Resources Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Planning, Construction Engineering & Management, Structural Engineering, and Soil Mechanics & Foundation Engineering. The department is involved in UG & seven PG programs and a research program leading to the Ph.D. degree. Students of the department with their diversified cultures/backgrounds are at the forefront of acquiring professional and technical knowledge. They conduct various technical and non-technical events under the Civil Engineering Society. The students regularly receive many awards/fellowships from governmental and non-governmental agencies. The department has been a pioneer and leader in carrying out testing and challenging consultancy work in the different areas of Civil Engineering.

Environmental Engineering Section

The Environmental Engineering Section of the Department is one of the oldest sections of the Department running a full time PG course in Environmental Engineering since 1972. The section has well trained and experienced full time professors who impart the technical knowledge of Environmental Engineering to the UG and PG students of the department. The section has produced a number of post graduate students who are well placed in academics, government organizations and some are well practicing Environmental consultants.
