School of Civil & Sub-surface Engineering

( M.Tech)

Programme Overview


You may not know that civil engineering is as old as the hills, yet as young as the 21st century. If related questions spark your interest, if you would like to test to failure structural models in laboratories, if you wish to plan, design, build and operate various infrastructure projects, then pursuing M.Tech at MIT-WPU School of Civil Engineering is a right career choice for you. Join MIT-WPU’s School of Civil Engineering and enrol in structural engineering or Construction Management courses to leave a mark that will help and inspire many.

Engineering is the profession in which knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences is used to the benefit of mankind. Engineers develop solutions to the problems of society within the constraints of economy and environment. Their primary job function includes activities such as design, analysis, manufacturing, research, sales, management, consulting and many more.

New generation engineers are required to cope with rapid changes in both domain knowledge and nature of problems to be solved. Engineering profession is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary; making demands on knowledge, skills as well as personality.Our focus is on educating practitioners and researchers who can play a variety of roles in planning, designing, building and operating more sustainable buildings and infrastructure.

Masters in Civil Engineering improves career prospects in engineering management, analysis, design, development and up gradation of products, systems and processes in every walk of human life. At MIT-WPU, we develop post grads with sound human values and sense of world citizenship. Our objective is to offer students with real life industrial exposure. National and international study tour offers global exposure to our students. Comprehensive Curriculum is imparted with active learning methods like problem based learning (PBL), experiential learning and collaborative learning. Choice based course selection, capstone projects and electives across disciplines offer much needed inter-disciplinary approach to budding Civil Engineers. Equipped with highly experienced faculty and strong industry academia connect, MIT-WPU School of Civil Engineering offers to turn out world class Civil Engineers.

Course Content

The courses in first year are designed to provide detailed knowledge of various aspects of specialisation track. The student will be able to understand and analyse the real life societal problem. Internship at the end of the year will render to identify the ways of getting solution of the analysed problem. Internship will also help them to understand the actual practical methods of understanding the course curricula.

Second year will include core specialisation in the chosen track in his/her own trade. The study tour will offer global exposure and industry internship will offer real life industry experience. Capstone project will inculcate problem solving skills, self-development spirit, professional ethics and habit of self-learning.
