The Ph.D. Programme in Civil Engineering (CE) is a research-based Programme. The research can be in any of the broad areas in CE. The core strength of the institute is currently in the following core areas: Structural Engineering, construction management. The main emphasis of this programme is on a thesis. Work towards the thesis requires a good understanding the state of art in an area, problem formulation, original contributions based on analysis with sufficient mathematical validation. The research is expected to be of sufficient quality to be publishable in leading international journals and top conferences pertaining to an area of research.
This programme has a limited amount of course work that can be completed in one year. The course work is aimed at providing a student with sufficient breadth and to carry out research. The main emphasis is on the research work leading to a thesis. Typically students decide on their research area and faculty advisor within the first year while doing course work. Thereafter, the steps involved are: finishing course work (to build research background and breadth), clearing a set of qualifiers, proposal defense, and thesis defense. The PhD qualifiers are a combination of coursework and comprehensive exams.
MVN School of Engineering and Technology understands that a successful career can only be built on a strong foundation of education. This is why the institute and its faculty are committed to ensuring academic excellence for each student. The state-of-the-art infrastructure and teaching aids help the faculty to unleash the creativity and passion within each student.
M.Tech.(CE) – Structural Engineering
M.Tech.(CE)- Master of Technology in Structural Engineering is a two year postgraduate course. Structural Engineering is a professional discipline that deals with the designing of infrastructures such as roads, tunnels, bridges, airports, railroads, facilities, buildings, dams, utilities and other projects.
Massive urbanization occurring globally has increased the demand for Structural Engineering, creating numerous job possibilities for them in industrialized nations as well as major metropolitan areas. Structural Design Engineers are required to manage the design work of bridges, buildings, multi-level roads, airports, railroads that are strong enough to safely transport goods and people. Structural engineers are specialists in design, construction, repair, rehabilitation and conservation. They are concerned with all aspects of a structure and its stability. Students who will complete this course will have career in the areas of Structural design and construction, offshore design and construction, oil and gas sector, bridge design, construction management, hydraulic structure design. Structure Engineers designs all kinds of structures from houses, theatres, sports stadia and hospitals to bridges, oil rigs and offshore structures.
Qualified students with knowledge of Structural engineering can get placed as Structural engineers and project managers in numerous government departments like Central Public Works Department (CPWD), Railways, Metro Rail, Highways, Indian Aluminium Limited (IAL), Public Works Department (PWD), Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC). Opportunities are also available in private sectors like Gammon India Ltd., Larsen and Toubro Ltd. , AARVEE ASSOCIATES, AECOM, BENTLEY, RAMBOL PVT. LTD. etc. as a design engineer.
