M.Tech. CE Structural (Full Time)


“Civil Engineering is the practice of improving and maintaining the built environment to enhance the quality of life for the present and future generation.”

Civil Engineering is one of the oldest and largest fields in this discipline and it offers graduates the opportunity to get involved in projects that enhance humanity’s quality of life. As the broadest engineering discipline at GNA, it also offers an incredible range of specialisation options such as Structural engineering and Geo-Technical Engineering.

M.Tech in Geo-Technical engineering at GNA involves the application of principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics for investigation and study of subsurface materials and conditions. Such findings help deduce important information about physical materials, subsurface materials and structures, and their chemical and mechanical properties. Soil, rock, bedrock, and fault distribution properties of the project site are also studied in detail. Studying such properties helps divulge more about the engineering properties of earth materials beneath the surface of the site. Other than that, such study also helps assess risk from natural hazards such as wind, earthquakes, landslides, etc. Based on such findings and assessments, Geotechnical Engineers plan the design and construction of foundation and/or other support structures. At the stage of construction of risk-proof structures, inputs from Geotechnical Engineers are taken into consideration wherever required. Similarly, geotechnical engineering’s principles are applied in construction of other manmade structures such as dams, bridges, roads, tunnels, skyscrapers, ports, railway lines, and commercial buildings.

This program prepares students to enter the workforce with advanced skills or pursue further studies in a doctoral program. The M. Tech degree can increase competitiveness in the job market, advance an existing career, or serve as a gateway to a Ph.D. degree.
