About the Programme

M.Tech. in Civil Engineering with specialisation in Geotechnical Engineering is a two-year postgraduate programme that involves the study of the performance of various kinds of soil under the influence of loading forces and soil-water interactions. This programme trains students to assess the risks from natural hazards such as wind earthquakes landslides etc. and helps them analyse, plan, construct foundations and support structures in such a way that ensure minimum collateral damage in critical situations.
The curriculum for this programme equips students to understand and implement the principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics for investigation and study of subsurface materials & conditions. Post completion of this programme, students will be able to identify, generate and interpret data, apply numerical methods for modelling, and analyse problems, evaluate the quality of data through testing and measurement equipment and test critical hypotheses using logical and consistent quantitative or qualitative arguments.

This course is for individuals who...

are extremely detail oriented and keen to develop an understanding of soil and rock mechanics. Individuals having analytical skills and basic knowledge of soil and rock mechanics are an ideal fit for this programme.

Students who are looking for...

widening their professional scope and want to specialise in geotechnical engineering with the addition of modern managerial skills must opt for this programme.
