M. Tech
Civil Engineering (Structural Engineering)


Course Overview

Structural Engineering, a specialization of civil engineering, involves the study of structure framework and designing the structures that can withstand environmental threats like earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, and other natural calamities. In simple words, structural engineering is all about developing the methods that ensure that buildings don’t collapse, roads are constructed with longevity, and bridges are designed to stay sturdy forever.

The Indian construction industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 10% in 2022-27. Apart from the ‘Smart City Mission’, over 610 projects are planned to be implemented from 2015-35 under the ‘Sagarmala Program’ – a flagship scheme by the Ministry of Shipping. Such large-scale projects have fuelled the growth of structural engineering in India.

M. Tech in Structural Engineering is an ideal postgraduate course for Civil Engineering graduates. It involves studying Structural Mechanics, Steel Structures, Reinforced and Pre-Stressed Concrete, Structural Dynamics, Finite Element Analysis, Design for Wind and Earthquake, etc. In addition, there is a massive requirement for Structural Engineers due to natural calamities faced by floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters.
