The department started with an intake of 60 students in the year 2004 to promote technical education to the aspiring students in the field of Civil Engineering in the country particularly in W.B. to make up the deficiency of demand of Civil Engineers prevailing at that time.
Intake was increased to 66 in 2005 due to 10% lateral entry in 3rd semester level of 2nd year.
At 2012, lateral entry increased to 20% of the basic intake and the total intake consequently became 72 students.
The same intake continued thereafter.
