MIT-WPU Civil Engineering Courses to Meet the Challenges of Modern Infrastructure

Pune, 20 May 2022: Under the School of Civil Engineering, MIT World Peace University (formerly MIT Pune) offers prestigious programs in B.Tech Civil Engineering and B.Tech Civil Engineering (Smart Infrastructure and Construction Engineering ) with a legacy of more than two decades to interested applicants. From the smallest shack to eye-catching structures, civil engineers manifest their work by invoking science, art and ethics; to conceive, design, construct, monitor, operate and maintain infrastructure, transport and public utility projects. Keeping in mind the dynamic nature of the industry and its demands, the School of Civil Engineering aims to nurture and guide young minds to develop bright and competent civil engineers.

To provide relevant experiential learning, the School of Civil Engineering houses a Center of Excellence Initiative for Innovative Design and Building Technologies in collaboration with the Building Science Department of Politecnico De Milano, Italy. As part of its ongoing efforts to foster industry-university partnerships, the School of Civil Engineering has also signed numerous MoUs with organizations such as PCERF, BAI, KL Structures USA, BSDC College UK and Plymouth University UK . In addition, civil engineering students can also use the structural dynamics laboratory, funded by AICTE’s MODROB program, to test the seismic response assessment of existing civil engineering structures.

Dr. Shantini Bokil, Director of the MIT-WPU School of Engineering, said: “In this era of industrialization and automation, the civil engineering sector has acquired a new perspective integrating the development sustainability and new technologies. At the School of Engineering, we pride ourselves on educating future civil engineers and strive for continuous improvement through scalable pedagogy, lasting collaborations, and social innovation coupled with experiential learning.

The 4-year, full-time B.Tech Civil Engineering program promotes academic excellence in the field of civil and environmental engineering with an emphasis on higher education, research, innovation and entrepreneurship among graduates. Students can choose from a plethora of majors such as – Infrastructure, Construction Engineering and Management; Structural analysis and design, materials; Geotechnical and foundation engineering; Transportation (roads, bridges, railway, airport, docks and ports); and Water Resources Engineering.

The B.Tech Civil Engineering (Smart Infrastructure and Construction Engineering) program provides students with knowledge of technologies that can be applied to solve infrastructure problems associated with aging infrastructure and increasing demands. With increasing urbanization, urban areas are expected to house 40% of India’s population and contribute 75% of India’s GDP by 2030.

Considering this, the pedagogy followed for the future-oriented course involves smart technologies including sensors, crowdsourcing and citizen science, actuators, data transmission, IoT, big data analytics and blockchain. These concepts can further be applied to intelligent infrastructure and construction management. Students pursuing the program can also choose from a host of majors including – Intelligent Transportation System, Sustainable Building Materials and Management, Smart Irrigation Technologies, and Automation in Civil Construction.

After completion of the course, graduates of civil engineering programs can pursue career opportunities such as – Construction project engineer, consultant (structure, environment, construction management and surveying), infrastructure planner and development engineer , Safety Auditor, Control and Quality Assurance Engineer, GIS Mapper and Metro and Infrastructure Engineer to name a few.

In addition to various employment opportunities, graduates interested in broadening their horizons for higher education can take advantage of the Institute’s links with foreign universities. MIT-WPU and Nottingham Trent University, UK have signed a progression agreement allowing civil engineering students to take the 4+1 progression pathway for courses offered by the School of Architecture , design and construction of the UK-based institute. Those interested can choose from six MSc courses offered – MSc Construction Management, MSc Project Management (Construction), MSc Quantity Surveying, MSc Structural Engineering with Management, MSc Structural Engineering with Materials and MSc Civil Engineering.

To explore the field of Civil Engineering, interested candidates must have passed the 12th standard with Physics, Mathematics and English as compulsory subjects with a minimum of 50% marks (45% for reserved category candidates) for apply for the program. In addition, applicants are also required to submit their valid JEE Main, MH-CET, WPU-MEET or PERA CET scores as part of the selection process.

MIT World Peace University (MIT-WPU, formerly known as MIT Pune) has a 4-decade legacy of educating Indian youth. Ranked 3rd best private university in India, MIT-WPU boasts an esteemed faculty and a network of over 1,00,000 alumni globally. The university offers more than 100 undergraduate, postgraduate, diploma and doctoral programs. He is also known for his prolific internships and professional support for students. Spread over 1000 acres, the MIT group now encircles more than 10 campuses across India, all equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and amenities. More than 50,000 students enroll in different courses each year, across the 65+ institutes of MIT World Peace University.
