M. Tech.(Construction Technology and Management)

This is a L&T sponsored Master degree programme on “Construction Technology and Management (CTM)” under the Build India Scholarship (BIS) Programme of L&T Constructions; a pioneering and successful programme involving Industry-Academia co-operation. This was initiated by L&T to technically strengthen their employees and also to attract young talents in the field construction technology and management. Originally this programme was started at IIT Madras and IIT Delhi and further extended to NIT Tiruchirappalli and NIT Surathkal in the year 2014. Since then NIT Tiruchirapplai is offering this course. Under this BIS programme, every year 30 engineering graduates in the Civil, Mechanical and Electrical disciplines are sponsored by L&T to each of the four Institutes. Approximately 50% of the candidates are the existing employees of L&T and the remaining 50% are fresh graduates admitted under this programme through open advertisement.

CTM programme is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the knowledge & skills required for the planning, coordination and successful implementation of large Projects such as design and construction of structures and buildings, ship structures, aircraft, dams, roads, and bridges etc….
