M.Tech – Structural Engineering
Department of civil Engineering is offering M.Tech in structural Engineering (from 2013 on wards) with an intake of 18.The course is approved by AICTE, Government of Karnataka and is affiliated to Visveswaraya Technological University, Karnataka. Opportunities for civil engineers exist in the public as well as private sectors in large numbers in all branches of design, construction and maintenance, infrastructure development in both India and abroad. Right now constructions industry is booming as there is growth in infrastructure requirement throughout the country. 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, masonry structures, composite structures. This programme empowers future engineers with a range of methods to analyse and design structures with quantifiable reliability over their design life.
