M. Tech. in Civil Engineering

Master of Technology (M.Tech.) in Civil Engineering programme is designed to have specialization options in Structural Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Transportation Engineering. The M.Tech. in Civil Engineering programme will impart advanced knowledge in the field of specialization and will prepare the students for a bright career in industries, research and academic organizations within India and abroad.

The following Five streams are offered in M.Tech. Civil Engineering Discipline:

Structural Engineering

This stream deals with the following major areas: advanced structural mechanics, finite element analysis, structural dynamics, structural stability, structural reliability, structural optimization, reinforced and pre-stressed concrete, steel structures, design for wind and earthquake, plates and shells, bridges, tall buildings, towers, computer applications in structural engineering, fracture mechanics, masonry structures, power plant structures, composite structures.

Environmental Engineering

This stream is designed to meet the needs of both government departments/public sector and industry, with emphasis on various aspects like protected water supply and sanitation for public health, pollution control and sustainable development.

Geotechnical Engineering

This stream provides specialized knowledge in various geotechnical engineering topics such as foundation engineering, ground improvement techniques, design of retaining walls, underground excavations, etc.

Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering

This stream provides a strong conceptual background in areas such as irrigation, hydrology, hydropower, water supply, flood control, through a wide range of courses including applied fluid mechanics, free surface flows, surface water, hydrology, water resources planning and management.
