M.Tech in Computer Aided Structural Engineering

About the Program

Computer Aided Structural Engineering is an innovative program, focused on the combination of recent advances made in the field of structural engineering and computer science. This combination allows structural engineer the flexibility and freedom for a better understanding of structural behavior with material and geometric non-linearity and loading uncertainties.

The students join this program with a background in civil engineering. The course provides an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of structural engineering subjects. It also engages in a comprehensive study of computer science subjects such as programming, databases, graphics, visualization etc.

Objectives

The objective of CASE programme is to include recent advances in the development and use of computer methods for the solution of scientific and engineering problems related to structures.

Advantages (for the student)

Course gives in-depth knowledge of mathematical modeling and computational methods in the areas of non-linear, static and dynamic analysis of structures. It also embraces computer-aided design including visualization and optimization methods.

Duration

Two years

Eligibility

BE/B.Tech in Civil Engineering.

Admission Process

An all-India examination to test the preparedness of the applicants will be held in May every year. The examination will be held at Hyderabad and a number of major cities in the country depending on the number of applicants from each region. The entrance examination will consist of two papers. Paper I test the general aptitude of the candidate and will consist of objective questions from Mathematics, Programming, and Logical Reasoning. Paper II is the Subject Paper, which tests the candidate's subject knowledge.

Curriculum (Semester-wise)

Student has to acquire a minimum of 65 credits in 4 semesters to become eligible to receive M. Tech in CASE degree. They have to acquire a minimum of 24 credits from domain structural engineering subjects, minimum of 12 credits from computer science subjects and minimum 4 credits from projects.
