Programme Details

B. Tech (Civil Engineering)

Engineering is the profession in which knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences is used to the benefit of mankind. Engineers develop solutions to the problems of society within the constraints of economy and environment. Their primary job function includes activities such as design, analysis, manufacturing, research, sales, management, consulting and many more. New generation engineers are required to cope up with rapid changes in both, domain knowledge and nature of problems to be solved. Engineering profession is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary; making demands on knowledge, skills as well as personality. Our B. Tech Programme is based on the three cardinal principles: providing social context to education, giving maximum choice to the student to choose a career path and encouraging active learning.

Why to Choose Civil Engineering?

A Civil Engineer has to work in diverse fields viz. Irrigation, Dams, Canals, Hydropower, Roads, Railways, Buildings, Industrial Structures, Bridges, Docks, Harbours, Airfields, Tunnels, Environmental Engineering (including Water Supply and Wastewater Treatment Systems) etc. A Civil Engineer is also responsible for wide spectrum of activities involving planning, designing, construction and maintenance of various civil engineering works. It provides an access to the public sector for employment through competitive exams likes UPSC, MPSC. The public sector undertakings are the Indian Railways, The Indian Aviation Authority, The CPWD, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, Nuclear Power Corporation of India, National Highway Authority of India, many State PWD’s, Corporations, etc. The employment opportunities in the private sector with leading construction companies like HCC, Shapoorji Palonji, DLF, SPCL, GMR Infrastructure, B G Shirke Construction Company, L&T, ACC, TCS, Punj Lyod, etc. Civil Engineers can be entrepreneurs and start their own construction companies, get employed with various consulting organization or be consultants themselves. Civil Engineers can opt for post-graduation and further Ph.D. They also can become researchers as well as faculty members in Engineering Institutes. At MIT-WPU, the department has Centre of Excellence for `Innovative Design and Construction Technologies, which is established in campus with the building science department of the Politecnico De Milano of Italy. There are active Memorandum of Understandings (MOU) for collaborative research with organizations like, Pune Construction Engineering and Research Foundation, Builders Association of India, KL Structures USA and BSDC College UK.

In this Programme, You will learn….

First year provides foundation of basic sciences including living systems. Since design is an activity central to the engineering profession, students in the very first year are exposed to design thinking. Social internship in first year is credit based and exposes the students to the problems faced by community. This is expected to sow the seeds of socially oriented innovation in the students’ mind. Second year courses are designed to provide grounding in basic engineering sciences from the chosen disciplines. Summer internship at the end of the second year involves guided study tour. The tour will expose the students to our diverse culture technology achievements and challenges. Third and fourth year will include the subjects belonging to the chosen track in his/her trade. International study tour of four weeks duration will offer a global exposure whereas semester long industry internship in the final year will offer real life industry experience. Capstone project in the eighth semester and inter-disciplinary project in the seventh semester will inculcate problem solving skills, team spirit, professional ethics and habit of self-learning.

How will this Programme be taught?

Civil Engineering being one of the most versatile discipline of engineering, involves analysis, design, development and up gradation of products, systems and processes in every walk of human life. At MIT-WPU, we develop Civil Engineers with sound human values and sense of world citizenship. Our objective is to offer students with real life industrial exposure. National and international study tour will offer global exposure to our students. Our programme offers five tracks of specialization which lead to careers in cutting edge technologies like structural analysis & design, environmental engineering, infrastructure planning, construction and management, soil engineering and foundation engineering and water resources. Civil Engineering curriculum is imparted with active learning methods like Problem Based Learning (PBL), experiential learning and collaborative learning. Equipped with highly experienced faculty and strong industry academia connect, MIT-WPU school of Civil Engineering offers to turn out world class Civil Engineers.
