Specialization in Construction Engineering & Management
- Specialization in Construction Engineering & Management
About the Course
B.Tech. Civil Engineering with specialization in Construction Engineering and Management provides students the knowledge of civil engineering with focus on modern construction materials, techniques and effective construction management practices. Through this programme, Civil Engineers become capable of constructing special structures and can become powerful project managers who can complete projects within a given schedule and budget.
The course includes Basic Sciences, Mathematics, Engineering Graphics and Computing techniques in the first year. Building drawing and other laboratory classes help students understand Civil Engineering in a practical way. In the second year, the fundamental principles are applied to study the behaviour of solids, fluids and soils. Transportation Engineering and Environmental Engineering are also introduced. In the third year, the focus is on analysis and Design of Steel and Concrete structures and Foundation Engineering. From the 3rd year onwards, electives are offered in the areas of Construction Engineering and Management. Students can opt for special electives such as:
- Modern Structural Materials and Systems Design
- Advanced Construction Techniques
- Shoring, Scaffolding and Form Work
- Advanced Concrete Technology
- Construction Personnel Management
- Construction Project Management
- Project Safety Management
- Quality Control & Assurance in Construction
- Quantitative Techniques in Management
- Contract Laws and Regulations
In the final year, students have to undertake a design project and a main project in the areas of Construction Engineering and Management.
Students are groomed under high standards of program delivery and rigorous curriculum and would naturally become capable of matching the employer's expectations. Civil Engineers specialized in Construction Engineering and management can find jobs in Government departments, private and public sector industries such as Planning Engineer, Site Engineer, Quality Control Engineer and Project Manager. Opportunities are also available in research and teaching institutions. Civil Engineers can manage the construction projects independently and can become entrepreneurs. There is always a high demand for experienced Civil Engineers globally.
