Postgraduate Programs

The department offers the following degrees at the postgraduate Level:

  1. M.Sc. Structural Engineering
  2. M.Sc. Geotechnical Engineering
  3. M.Sc. Hydraulics and Irrigation Engineering
  4. Ph.D. Civil Engineering

The master’s degree courses consist of lectures, design work, laboratory investigations, presentations, seminars and research. The emphasis is on introducing students to modern trends and techniques besides imparting advanced knowledge in their fields of specialization.

The department has adequate research facilities for the postgraduate students and the faculty. Priority of the department has been towards solution of different problems faced by the public/private sectors in the field of civil engineering. Civil Engineering Department also has a possession of shaking table for simulation of dynamic response of physical models and prototypes in its earthquake laboratory.

The faculty members are engaged in a variety of research programs such as Low Cost Housing, Investigation of Mechanical Properties of Concrete, Alkali-Silica Reaction, Geopolymer Concrete and Brick Development, Use of Indigenous Materials, Composite Space Structures, Towers, Stability of Slopes, Soil improvement techniques, determination of B.C., Pneumatic Techniques, Seepage, Water Logging and Salinity Control, Sedimentation in Channels and Reservoirs, River Flood Hydraulics, Application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in various fields of Civil Engineering, Hydrological Modeling, Soil Erosion and Sediment Transport Modeling, Flood Modeling for Coastal Areas due to Climate Change, Offshore Hydraulics, Bond Strength of Ultra-high Strength Concrete, Development and use of FRP materials, High Performance Concrete, Earthquake Risk Assessment & Retrofitting Techniques, Reliability based Design and Development of Computer Software for the Complex Civil Engineering Problems.
