Master of Technology in Structural Engineering Design
The two-year program leading to award of Master of Technology in Structural Engineering Design is designed to enhance skills & knowledge of structural design for the students and working professionals in the construction and civil engineering sector.
The pedagogy includes a wide variety of courses with significant emphasis on practical applications through hands-on studio courses exercises (working on lifelike situations) and independent dissertation. Structural designers play an important role in process of design and decision-making right from the commencement of the project till the completion of the same. With the complexities in architectural plans, advancement in the theory of dynamics and conservation of heritage structures, the need of competent structural designer has increased remarkably since few years.
The program aims to train a Student in practical art and philosophy of structural design. It also gives the insight into investigation, assessment and strengthening of the damaged structures. The program also engages the students into the design of ongoing important industrial structures such as chimneys, silos, water tanks, bridges and ports.
The Structural Engineering Design program focuses on building professional capacities and therefore, they are centered on ‘studios’. The studio based courses wherein all students work on live projects and come up with their own transformed structural systems, analysis and design. The professionals from eminent design offices are invited to teach the students and share their experiences.
Graduates from this program are well versed with norms and requirements of the design methodology adopted in various countries and hence are very well placed in leading national and international organizations. They have also been successful in starting their own practice and establishing a consultancy firm. A few of our graduates choose to pursue doctoral studies and take up a career in teaching and research.
