  • Structural Engineering is an innovative program, focused on the combination of recent advances made in the field of structural engineering. 
  • This program allows structural engineer the flexibility and freedom for a better understanding of structural behavior with material and geometric non-linearity and loading uncertainties 
  • It also engages in a comprehensive study of modern structural engineering subjects such as Analysis of Offshore Structures, Bridge Design, Construction Technology, etc.


  • Scholarship of Knowledge - Acquire in-depth knowledge of specific discipline and global perspective, with an ability to discriminate, evaluate, analyze and synthesize existing and new knowledge, and integration of the same for enhancement of knowledge pool.
  • Critical Thinking - Analyze complex engineering problems critically, apply independent judgement for synthesizing information to make intellectual and/or creative advances for conducting research in a wider theoretical, practical and policy context. 
  • Problem Solving - Think laterally and originally, conceptualize and solve engineering problems, evaluate a wide range of potential solutions for those problems and arrive at feasible, optimal solutions after considering public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental factors in the core areas of expertise. 
  • Research Skill - Extract information through literature survey and experiments, apply appropriate research methodologies, techniques and tools, design, conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data, contribute individually/in group(s) to the development of scientific/technological knowledge in one or more domains of engineering. 
  • Usage of modern tools - Create, select, learn and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations. 
  • Collaborative and Multidisciplinary work - Demonstrate collaboration to foster multidisciplinary scientific research, also demonstrate decision-making abilities to achieve common goals.
  • Project Management and Finance - Demonstrate knowledge and understanding to manage projects efficiently in respective disciplines and multidisciplinary environments after consideration of economical and financial factors. 
  • Communication - Communicate with the engineering community and with society, regarding complex engineering activities confidently and effectively and give and receive clear instructions. 
  • Life-long Learning - Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in life-long learning independently, with a high level of enthusiasm and commitment to improve knowledge and competence continuously.
  • Ethical Practices and Social Responsibility - Acquire professional and intellectual integrity, professional code of conduct, ethics of research and scholarship, consideration of the impact of research outcomes on professional practices and an understanding of responsibility to contribute to the community for sustainable development of society.
  • Independent and Reflective Learning - Observe and examine critically the outcomes of one’s actions and make corrective measures subsequently, and learn from mistakes without depending on external feedback.
  • Develop skill in analysis and design of contemporary engineering problems as per specifications and standards.
  • Apply engineering tools, instrumentation and software for solving structural engineering problems.
  • Knowledge of advance method construction technique for practicing alternatives and cost effective construction materials & methodology.
  • To engage graduates for fulfilling societal needs from their learning.
