The M.Tech in Structural Engineering program was started in the year 2016, with an intake of 24 students. This program provides skilled manpower for industries in domains related to Structural design and consultancy. Some of the courses that will be taught during the first two semesters are Mechanics of Deformable Bodies, Structural Dynamics, Computational Structural Mechanics, Design of Tall Structures, Advanced Design of Steel Structures, Finite Element Method of Analysis, Design of Earthquake Resistant structures, and host of other interesting courses. There are also electives offered in different domains, to provide a complete overview of structural design, analysis. The department have modern laboratory facilities like Structures lab with loading frame of 50 Ton capacity, Research Lab with accelerated curing facility. Earthquake Engineering lab. Dynamics lab, Structural Health Monitoring lab with sensors and DAQ system, Hitech Concrete lab with SCC facility, and Computer Aided Design lab. The department has the requisite software like Etabs, Csi Bridge, Cype Cad, Midas Civil, Midas Gen, Midas FEA NX, Deep Soil, Resist, Dewesoft, and hardware and labs to provide the necessary skills and training to the students. Some of our students have been placed in companies like Petrocon Engineers and Consultants Mangalore, Sristi Ventures Udupi, Saipem Netherlands BV, Rambol Doha Qatar. The department has MoUs with several reputed organizations and Institutions for training, internships and research and technical support. The main impact of this course is industry requirements and opportunities in the structural design world. Many of our M.Tech Structures Post Graduates are entrepreneurs now setting up their own ventures and design companies.
This programme provides opportunities for students to carryout internship, projects, research and skill development etc., anywhere in the globe of their choice. Experts and industries from both national and international levels like Geosmart International Pte.Ltd, Singapore, M/s Srishti Ventures and M/s Accretgeo etc., will provide teaching, training and placement assistance.
To uphold the Department as a leader in community development through innovation and excellence in diverse areas of Civil Engineering to meet the global challenges and market demandsMISSION
The department is actively involved in consultancy of Civil Engineering structures. The major areas are structural design, determination of SBC, Mix design, third party inspection of different Civil Engineering structures etc. Students are actively participating in the design and analysis of structures.
