The curriculum of this programme was developed by veterans of the Civil Engineering Department, under the guidance of the University. The Department has contributed significantly to the development of the curriculum of the programme in consultation with eminent academicians from IITs and universities in India as a unique blend of structural and geotechnical streams. The programme equally covers two main streams of Civil Engineering, the Geotechnical Engineering and Structural Engineering.
Foundation design is a most challenging field in civil engineering. The nature of soil tends to change from point to point, and it changes with depth. Designing a foundation needs high level of knowledge about soil mechanics and analytical skills. Foundations are the most critical part of any structure. For higher structures, one has to go deeper, and more problems need to be solved for heavier and higher structures. Geotechnical needs to be integrated well with structural design and architecture to give its due importance. The postgraduate course on Geomechanics and Structures at Saintgits create civil engineers with a strong ground on geotechnical engineering as well as structural engineering. This course is supported by Advanced Geotechnical Laboratory which has high-end equipment like triaxial testing machine and software like PLAXIS 2D, 3D, ANSYS etc for soil modelling. The facilities are also offered to outside students at reasonable cost.
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.
