Course Overview

Ph.D. in Civil Engineering is a doctorate degree course that includes construction, design and maintenance of structures like dams, roads, canals, ridges, railways etc. While pursuing this program, students need to pick a specialization to carry on with their research and dissertation work. The subjects include geo-informatics, hydraulics, infrastructure engineering, geotechnical engineering and water resources engineering.

The research project is a crucial component of the Ph.D. program, and it requires students to work closely with a faculty advisor to conduct original research in their area of interest. The research project enables students to develop their research skills, learn how to design and conduct experiments, analyse data and communicate their findings effectively.

Ph.D. in Civil Engineering is quite effective for students to develop a good command over civil engineering and research in eco-friendly technologies and infrastructure. This program is a boon for the students who wish to develop a powerful connection with faculty, other students and researchers in global community.

At the end of the program, graduates would emerge as competent and efficient source of power carrying a brilliant career scope in chemicals, marine, power, transportation, oil and energy, marine, etc.
