MTech Course in Civil Engineering

MTech Course in Civil Engineering:

Civil Engineering is the branch of engineering which deals with the study of designing, construction, and maintenance of building, roads, bridges, dams and canal etc. Civil Engineers basically design, develop, operate and maintain the construction projects including roads, buildings, canals, bridges, dams. TO become a civil engineer one has to be specialized in any of the discipline of civil engineering. And there are many disciplines of Civil Engineering which have to be chosen by the student after completing B.Tech Graduation. After completion of B.Tech, one has to choose one field among various disciplines of Civil Engineering during post graduation. Following are the major MTech Course in Civil Engineering which is basically two year post graduation course.

Building Technology and Construction Management: This specialization is concerned with functional designing of building & its energy management, Construction project management, Construction Planning and Control, Quality and safety management and computer application in construction.

Environmental Engineering: It is concerned with hazardous waste management & environmental remediation work, waste water treatment, and air pollution by treating biological, chemical, thermal wastes, purification of air and water and remediation of contaminated sites due to waste disposal.

Structural Engineering: It is concerned with the structural design and analysis of buildings, towers, bridges, flyovers, tunnels and aerostructure. During this course, Students have to analyze the relation between load and the structure upon which load is placed. One should have to identify what effect will occur on the structure due to that load. The structural engineer must have to design those structures which are safe for their users and to successfully fulfill the function they are designed for (to be serviceable). Following are the consideration which are focused in this discipline: Stiffness, strength, stability, sustainability of the structure

Transportation Engineering: It is concerned with designing, constructing and maintaining the transportation infrastructure including canals, streets, airport, highways and railways. In Transportation Engineering, Focus is on transportation planning, transportation design, traffic engineering, infrastructure management and Intelligent Transportation System.

Some other streams are Geotechnical and Geo environmental Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Remote Sensing and GIS, Computer Aided Structural Analysis and Design, Geo-Informatics and Survey Technology, etc.

Eligibility Criteria and suitability:

  • To pursue MTech course in civil Engineering, candidate must be qualified in B.E./BTech course in Civil Engineering or equivalent examination
  • Candidate must have skills of problem solving, should have ability of analyzing, evaluating design and ability to work as team

M.Tech specialist’s career opportunities:

  • Tech Civil Engineer can apply in Education Teaching, Infrastructural Engineering, Facility Engineering
  • Tech Civil Engineer may be Civil Engineering Specialist, Land Surveyor, Project Manager, Coordinator, Graduate Executive Trainee, and Executive Manager
  • Civil Engineers are employed in the railways, Construction Companies, Military and Engineering Services




BTech Course in Civil Engineering

BTech Course in Civil Engineering:

Civil engineering is the base of the engineering fields. It deals with planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating infrastructures. This course teaches the development of better infrastructural facilities to sustain an eco-friendly environment. Civil engineering course is offered both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. B.Tech. – Civil Engineering is a 4 years undergraduate program which imparts knowledge to the students in mathematics, physics, instrumentation, computers, management and economics – essential requirements for any successful civil engineer. Students gain practical knowledge and experience from field visits to industries, construction sites, dams and irrigation structures, etc.

btech courses in civil engineering

Our Civil engineering Department focuses on developing the future engineers who can create the outstanding infrastructure of the world including Water works, Dams, Sewers, Transmission Towers, Power Plants, Railroads, Bridges,  Highways, Irrigation Canals, Tunnels, Shipping Canals, Traffic Control, Industrial Plant Buildings, Airport Runways, Terminals, etc.

Following are the best undergraduate courses in civil engineering which are running in SRM University:

Building Technology and Construction Management: Building technology courses helps the students in gaining the skills needed in the construction field. Graduates of this course may work as managers or contractors if they have sufficient construction experience. Students under this course learn the basics of construction drawing, building codes, blueprint reading and construction project management. They learn how to construct walls, floors, roofs, and foundations, as well as other exterior and interior structures.

Environmental Engineering: Environmental engineers work for resolving environmental problems after using the principles of engineering, biology and chemistry. They are involved in efforts to improve waste disposal, recycling, public health, and air and water pollution control and address global issues- climate change, unsafe drinking water, and environmental sustainability.

Water Resources Engineering: It is a specific kind of civil engineering which is involved in the designing of new systems and equipment that help in managing the human water resources. Water Resource Engineer generally creates new equipment, systems to increase the effectiveness of water treatment. They not only design these water management systems, but often inspect the construction and maintenance of these systems as well.

Geo-technical Engineering: Geo-technical engineering is the study of the behavior of soils under the influence of loading forces and soil-water interaction which is applied to the design of foundations, retaining walls, earth dams, clay liners, and Geo-synthetics for waste containment. The Geo-technical engineers are responsible for determining the engineering properties of site soils and their subsequent use in the analytical study of the problem at hand. Now a days the activities of Geo-technical engineers have also involved Geo-environmental engineering. Geo-environmental engineers design strategies for the clean-up of contaminated soils and groundwater and develop management systems for contaminated sites.

Structural Engineering: Structural Engineers faces the challenges of designing structures by developing appropriate combinations of concrete, steel, plastic, timber, and new exotic materials and are involved in planning and designing and visiting project sites to make sure works is done properly.

Transportation Engineering:  Transportation engineers are responsible for planning, designing, building, operating and maintaining the system of transport in order to provide safe, efficient and convenient movement of people and goods.

Candidates must have secured at least 50% aggregate in PCM 12th Standard or equivalent examination, recognized by State or Central Education Board. Candidates must have chosen five subjects and studied Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as core subjects in 12th Standard.


Admission is based on the ranks secured in the All India Engineering Entrance Examination of SRM University (SRMEEE).
