The Government of India is emphasizing on up-gradation of infrastructure by focusing on development of Smart Cities, AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation), NHDP, Sethu Bharatam etc… The M.Tech. program in Civil Engineering (Urban Infrastructure), bridges the gap between theoretical concepts and its ground level implementation for efficient utilization of resources. The department aims to achieve this objective by tailoring courses to directly address the issues and look for technical solutions. The program would also create a platform for major urban bodies to exchange difficulties and innovative solutions developed. The aim of this program would be to enable research and development for addressing problems faced by rapid urbanization like development of multi-modal transport networks, water conservation, sewage disposal, waste management and so on.

The graduates of this program would be highly employable for Government projects as project engineers, consultants, project managers and so on. The students would also be encouraged to undertake research in state-of-the-art laboratories under highly qualified faculty members.

Courses would be offered from the following list not limited to it at Post Graduate program:

  • Research Methodology
  • Infrastructure Design
  • Optimization Methods in Engineering
  • Microeconomics of Infrastructure
