The Civil Engineering Association (popularly known as CEA) at IIT Bombay, was established
with a prime objective to proliferate knowledge & address industrial issues by bringing
corporates, professors and students on common platform. CEA, having students as well as
faculties as its members, is one of the most active organizations of civil engineers in the country.
We aim to promote Civil Engineering by providing the much-needed practical exposure to the community members through its regular activities like technical seminars, research symposium, talks on ongoing research practices throughout the globe and many other related topics from distinguished practitioners of the trade.
Collaboration between the school and industry is important for the advancement of engineering teaching and research. With this aim, to give our students some practical insight into Civil Engineering, we organize several visits throughout the year to ongoing construction sites thus giving them a chance to interact with key personnel of the industry.
Student body of Civil Engineering Association, IIT Bombay, organizes Aakaar, the annual festival of Civil Engineering Department, IIT Bombay. Aakaar provides a platform to budding civil engineers across the country to create, innovate and learn various aspects of civil engineering through competitions, events and Symposium (research paper conference). Aakaar has gone on to become the undisputed front-runner among civil engineering festivals.
The association is also involved in publications with its annual magazine - 'YELLOW', an informal newsletter - 'BLUEPRINT', a technical research letter - 'INQUEST' and 'SENTIENCE' - for highlighting the latest civil engineering innovations.
Apart from the technical aspects, it also undertakes the responsibility of proper nurturing of students by organizing some social events as a part of extracurricular. "Freshers Day" as the break the ice event for the newcomers, intra departmental sports and cultural events at UG as well as PG level, department trek and trips etc. are some of the events which are organized by CEA throughout the year.
