Transportation Engineering and Management
While rapid strides have been made in the design and construction of roads, only recently an awareness is felt that Transportation and Traffic Management needs a scientific approach to effect savings in cost and time of transportation. In this course, both engineering and management aspects of transportation systems with emphasis on road transportation are dealt with. The course includes subjects such as Transport Management Economics, Transportation and Land Use Planning, Financial and Personnel Management, Traffic Engineering and Pavement Design. Computer knowledge is imparted in the areas of CAD in Transportation Engineering, Computer Simulation and Geographical Information Systems. Almost all the subjects have IT content and hands on training on computers will be given. The students have wide scope for placement in Multi-National companies specializing in Transportation Consultancy, Govt. Organizations such as Highways and Railways, Educational Institutions, etc. Professionals working in the transport field can also upgrade their knowledge with the latest techniques.
Structural Engineering is a core specialization in Civil Engineering. There is a growing demand for specialists in Structural Engineering. The aim of this course is to fulfill this need. Practicing engineers will find the course very useful and interesting. It will enable them to update their knowledge in the field of structural behavior and design. The curriculum has been so designed as to give exposure to the students on areas of structural analysis, design, detailing and construction. The course also includes the use of general purpose application oriented computer software in the field of Structural Engineering using finite element analysis and optimization techniques. The students have ample scope for placement in construction industries and educational institutions.
Environmental engineering is the branch of engineering that is concerned with protecting the environment from the potentially deleterious effects of human activity, protecting human beings from the effects of adverse environmental factors and improving environmental quality for human health and well being. The objective of the course in environmental engineering is to graduate professional engineers with leadership qualities in engineering aspects of land and water management and environmental assessment, and skills in water supply, wastewater treatment, land reclamation and solute transport. Such engineers should be able to converse scientifically with biologists, ecologists and resource managers, have analytical, synthesis and numerical skills, and have experience in computing, field and laboratory techniques relating to natural resources. With these skills, graduates will be able to play a leading role in developing engineering solutions to a wide range of problems and opportunities within an ecologically sustainable context. The course has been designed to meet the requirements of industry, consultancy services, academic and R & D organizations related to Environmental Management, treatment of effluents, control of emissions and remediation of contaminated environment. The programme provides ample choice of electives to enable students to develop deeper in to various aspects related to this discipline, i.e. Environmental Monitoring and Modeling, Environmental Impact Assessment, Environment Biotechnology, Industrial Air & Water Pollution Control, Ecology, Clean Technology and Hazardous Waste Management.
