M. Tech. Structural Engineering and Construction Management

This course is tailored for civil engineers wishing to become senior consultant managers in both structural consulting firms and contracting organisations, and is ideal for graduate engineers starting their career in the construction industry. It successfully combines structural design with advanced construction management, which will enable you to perform at a managerial level for a high level structural consultant or contractors. The course is supported by an excellent well equipped structural research laboratory, in which high load testing floor facility is available, with loading frame of 50 T and its accessories. We have data acquisition systems, digital load cells, load indicators, strain gauges, non destructive testing facility like rebound hammer,CTM of 300T capacity etc particularly for reseach alone.We have facility to test beams up to 4 m, slabs up to 2x2m, columns up to 2m height. The facilities are offered for outside students at reasonable cost.

The course is also supported by Design Studio lab where 35 high end computers with licensed softwares like SAP, ETABS, Primavera and STAAD are available, which are the software used by structural and construction companies. We have established an ANSYS research facility, the only one of such kind in kerala, in which 100 student licenses and 4 research licenses with unlimited notes of ANSYS finite element package is installed.

This course will be a good platform for Civil Engineers where they get exposed to advanced structural design and analysis, finite element analysis, advanced material sciences, advanced construction management, earthquake engineering, structural experimental techniques and software analytical techniques.

Value Added Course

Value added courses are designed to fill the curriculum gap of the programmes offered. Value added courses are conducted to ensure skill development of students and make them industry ready.

The Civil Department offers value added courses in 3D Drafting (AutoCAD 3D, 3Ds Max), REVIT BIM Architecture, Primavera, MATLAB, LaTex, Tekla Structures, SAP, ETABS, STAAD, Building Design Workshop, Total Station Survey Camp and Advanced experimental testing.

Among these wide spectra of courses offered at Saintgits, a student could select any in each semester and he/she should undergo at least seven of these courses based on his/her priority.
