Civil Department


Civil department was established in 1981, the same year when Dr. Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil Institute of Technology & Engineering Polytechnic, Loni was set up as the first private sector diploma college in Maharashtra. From 4 teachers imparting education to 60 students, we have enlarged into 293 students under 6 teachers.

Many of our alumni are literally creating wonders – constructing buildings over the world! In keeping with our commitment to social responsibility, we organized “Socio Vision 2015-16”. And, the January 2018 Faculty Development Training Program, “Recent Trend in Civil Engineering,” extends our aim of keeping ahead of the times.

Our Vision

To develop the students by adopting updated technologies in Civil engineering for rural and social development.

Our Mission

To train technicians to adopt technological developments and professional practice in the field of civil engineering.
To develop linkages with construction industries to provide life experiences and latest technology applications.
To enhance career opportunities for students through exposure to higher education, industry and entrepreneurship.


To present students as responsible citizens as well as good human beings in society.
To Educate & Train the students as per the requirement of the construction industry with state of the art equipment’s & techniques.
