M.Tech Structural Engineering

Why M. Tech Structural Engineering?

Structural engineers are specialists in design, construction, repair, rehabilitation and conservation. They are concerned with all aspects of a structure and its stability. But M. Tech Structural Engineering with UPES offers additional specially designed subjects to achieve specialization in Bridge Structure/ Hydraulic Structure/ Offshore Structure as per interest of students.

Objective: To develop Structural Engineers having strong expertise in onshore infrastructure and a sound background for specialized areas like Offshore Structure/ Management (General)/ Bridge Structure/ Hydraulic Structure.

Scope: Students who will complete this course will have career in the areas of Structural design and construction, offshore design and construction, oil and gas sector, bridge design, construction management, hydraulic structure design. Structure Engineers designs all kinds of structures from houses, theatres, sports stadia and hospitals to bridges, oil rigs and offshore structures. 

What differentiates this course with conventional M.Tech Structural course?

In the first year of study, students learn and get a complete knowledge on Structural engineering and additionally they can specialize in one of the areas among Bridge Structure/ Hydraulic Structure/ Offshore Structure as per interest of students.

In second year, Students will be sent for internship to private and government construction companies, design consultant companies and in offshore companies to work and enrich their knowledge.

  • P.R. Roshan

    Course : M.Tech Chemical Engineering

    Experience :We are P.R. Roshan’s (M.Tech Chemical Engineering) parents and would like to take this opportunity to express our thoughts.
    As the session almost draws to a close we would like to thank the management, teachers, administrative staff and our special thanks to the cook for second trusted home.
    My son had a wonderful time and enjoyed the stay and experience at UPES. Short…..but definitely memorable and close to his heart. He has found some good friends. Needless to say he has grown in many ways and it will surely make a good foundation for his future.
    We are aware that it takes a lot of hard work in the background by the team of UPES to make this happen and most often all the efforts remain in shadow. But the results are the reflection of what has gone into the student.
    Hence, we would like to thank and share our deep appreciation and gratitude to the entire team of UPES for Nurturing, facilitating and encouraging growth in the most positive and supportive manner.
    Thanks & Regards
    Janani & Rajakrishnakanth, Chennai
