MS(Civil Engineering)

Program Objectives

The objective of this program is to produce civil engineers with essential knowledgebase and training required for understanding of advanced concepts, which are required for undertaking of complicated real problems. The master’s program allows two options to the students i.e. Masters with thesis/project. Masters with thesis is designed for students who wish to study a particular research area in greater depth. Masters with project is designed for people with a bachelor's degree in engineering (or related field), who want to enter or return to professional practice.
