The Department of Civil Engineering was started from the very inception of Bapatla Engineering College in 1981 and so far has produced nearly 1850 graduates. Over the years the department has shown remarkable progress in academics. The department was nurtured in the hands of Dr S R Parimi and then groomed under the guidance and services of Dr G. Krishna Swamy, Dr. K N V Prasada Rao, Prof M L Ganju, Dr V. Sreenivasulu, Dr N Rangaiah, Dr A.V. Narayanappa, Dr CH Sarath Babu, Dr K V Krishna Rao (Presently working as faculty at IITB), Dr M Amarnath Reddy (Presently working as faculty at IIT,KGP) and Dr. K. Lakshmi Prasad. The strength of the department lies with its well qualified and dedicated faculty, Skilled supporting staff, well established laboratories, excellent infra structure and disciplined& hardworking students. Dr S R Parimi, Dr G. Krishna Swamy, Dr K N V Prasada Rao and Dr. K. Lakshmi Prasad served the Institution as Principal apart from the department.
