MIT-WPU School of Civil Engineering
As we enter the 21st century we find ourselves in an increasingly digital world. With the advent of science and technology reaching meteoric heights, the importance of Civil Engineering has only increased. Now, more than ever, Civil Engineers are required to build the various giant infrastructure projects on whose back the world is now run. From damming works to building skyscrapers to building roadways and ports; every structure that is man made requires a Civil Engineer. It has been so since the time of the pyramids about 4000 years ago and it will be true of any structure we erect 4000 years from now.
We, at MIT-WPU School of Civil Engineering take great pride in our faculty, who are amongst the best in India, being chosen equally for their academic acumen as for their industry experience. Students studying under us are assured of the highest quality education buoyed by our state of the art laboratories and extensive field trips to industries in order to familiarize them with the practical aspects of their trade.

Best Architectural works around the World – HAGIA SOPHIA (Istanbul)
One of the most iconic, and indeed revolutionary, structures to have ever existed is the grand Hagia Sophia in Constantinople (modern Istanbul). Considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture, the present structure was completed in AD 537 after the previously standing structure was destroyed in the Nika Riots. The Hagia Sophia was the largest cathedral in the world for over a thousand years as well as being the seat of the Eastern Orthodox Church; and until the building of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, it was the grandest mosque in the Islamic world. The grandness of the structure has been attested to by numerous accolades that it has received over the years as well as the way it revolutionized architecture, and indeed provided the original inspiration for the domes used in almost all mosques around the world. Indeed, the original inspiration for the famed Taj Mahal domes can be traced back to the Hagia Sophia!
The building of this magnificent structure was a civil engineering and architectural nightmare for the time. The structure built before it has a very heavy dome which caused it to collapse entirely in an earthquake and then again during the Nika riots. Under the Greek geometers Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralles, the lasting and iconic structure was raised in 537 AD and it stand until today, withstanding the test of time itself……..Read More
