The Civil Engineering Department was the first Department to be started when the Institute was first established on 16th of January, 1948. The Institute was then named the Assam Civil Engineering School, which was again changed to Assam Civil Engineering Institute in 1952. The present name of the Institute was given in 1956. The need of the State of Assam at that time was that of an Institution to train Assistant Engineers and Overseers to execute the heavy programmes of the post Second World War Development Plan like construction of roads, bridges, and buildings.

Student Intake:
The intake of the Department of Civil Engineering has varied over the years and was changed depending of the need of the times. Starting from the original intake of 30 students in the first batch of the Department, the intake has varied from 60 to 120 and the present intake of the Department stands at 90 students.

The Department of Civil Engineering had only one Lecturer at the time of inception, and at present, the Department has a Head of Department, two Senior Lecturers, seven Lecturers and three Senior Instructors. Almost all the faculties are Master Degree holders in various Civil Engineering fields like Structural Engineering, Watershed Management & Flood Control Engineering, Building Construction, and Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering.
