Master of Technology in Construction Engineering & Management
Construction managers play a crucial role in the development of built environment and infrastructure. They facilitate the process of construction planning and ensure efficient and timely implementation of infrastructure projects. CEPT University offers a two-year full-time post-graduate program leading to Master of Technology (M. Tech) in Construction Engineering and Management. This program aims to train engineers and architects to become competent professionals in the field of construction engineering and project management. The teaching programs at CEPT University focus on building professional capacities. Therefore, they are centred on studio based pedagogy, which is inclusive of simulation of real life projects (buildings, infrastructure etc.). Coursework, seminars and research assignments, aimed at developing conceptual and analytical abilities of students, and skill-enhancing workshops support learning in studios and labs.
The training of professionals as part of M. Tech (Construction Engineering and Management) program focuses on following areas: project management, construction management, contracts management, construction quality, safety and equipment management, supply chain management of construction projects, modern construction materials and technologies, computer applications in construction (ERP, MS Project, Primavera), and building information modelling (BIM) for construction industry. Students also have to enroll in travel and documentation programs, and intern in construction projects to widen their exposure.
As a consequence, programs mandate only three quarters of the total academic workload. To complete the remaining quarter, students choose courses from amongst the wide variety of electives that are available across the five faculties of the University.
The belief that educating professionals requires practising professionals and academicians to work closely together firmly underpinsTherefore, Practitioners adept at well-balanced decision-making bring their experience to classrooms and academics impart more thoughtful and critical approaches.
Graduates of this program can build successful careers in construction management, with leading government and private agencies. Many choose to work with leading construction organisations, infrastructure developers and advisory firms in the country and abroad. Some graduates undertake doctoral studies and further research at some of the best universities and research institutions across the world. At a time when infrastructure sector in India is rapidly growing, the opportunities for construction management professionals are immense.
