Structural Engineering Course details

Structural engineering is a specialized branch of civil engineering which deals with analysis and design of structures. The specialists under this field designs the structures like buildings, Sky scrappers, Bridges, Dams, Airports, factories etc. Indus University offers a two years masters degree (M. Tech) program in structural engineering which developed keeping the current interest of global construction industries. The studio based teaching learning pedagogy is one of the unique proposition of this program at Indus University.

After completing Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering one can opt for this highly demanded program. In this two years of course students are being taught thoroughly the concept of structural engineering through various theory and practical sessions. The students are also being guided for potential research and start ups activities through one full year of dissertation. 

25% of the sanctioned strength of Management & NRI quota will be filled up on the basis of merit as per the eligibility criteria decided by AICTE & Gujarat State Government and procedure laid down by ACPC.


The eligibility criteria are a minimum of 50% marks in B.E./B.Tech with the qualifying GATE Score or State level entrance exam for M.E./M.Tech.

Course Duration
2 Years (4 Semesters)

18 Seats

Tuition fees
Rs. 1,26,000 per annum

Engineering proficiency: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to solve complex engineering issues.

Analysis: Formulate, Identity, review research writings, and analyze complex engineering issues reaching verified findings using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering.

Design & development solutions: Design solutions for complicated engineering problems and design system elements or methods that meet the identified needs, considering safety issues and cultural and environmental concerns properly.

Sustainability and Environment: Understand the effect of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and exemplify the understanding of and need for endurable development.

Individual and teamwork: Function effectively as an individual and as a member or leader in diverse teams and multidisciplinary settings.

Communication: Communicate on complicated engineering exercises with the engineering community and society at extensive, such as understanding and documenting effective reports and design documentation to make effective presentations and receive clear instructions.

Material Testing Laboratory

The testing and inspection of Construction Materials are vital for quality construction. Material Testing Laboratory allows students to evaluate various properties of construction materials such as fresh and hardened concrete, Cement, Aggregates, Bricks, A.A.C. Blocks etc.

Soil Mechanics & Foundation Engineering Laboratory

The Laboratory is equipped to perform all the necessary essential characterization of soils, rocks, and several advanced testing facilities. The vision of this division is to utilize state-of-the-art knowledge for solving problems related to the subsurface. It includes:

  • Soil mechanics, which is essential to identify, characterize and study the mechanics of soil/rock.
  • Applied soil mechanics, which transfers the behavioural knowledge to practice.

Earthquake Engineering Laboratory

Earthquake engineering is the scientific field concerned with protecting society, the natural and the man-made environment from earthquakes by limiting the seismic risk to socio-economically acceptable levels. Traditionally, it has been narrowly defined as the study of the behaviour of structures and geo-structures subject to seismic loading, thus considered as a subset of both structural and geotechnical engineering.

Computational Laboratory

Many of the actual problems in the engineering fields, like civil engineering, are generally the simultaneous combinations of multiple physical phenomena, which are called multi-physics problems. To deal with such problems, the Department is equipped with a computational laboratory that has a total capacity of around 60 seats and systems updated with software such as AutoCAD, Staad Pro V8i, Revit, MS Projects, Primavera.

M.Tech Structural Engineering plays an essential role in the construction industry and candidates can start their careers as Structural Consultant in the field of Real estate, Industries and Infrastructural Projects. Structural Engineers are widely appreciated by other construction specialists for their skills, which are a vital part of crushing its challenges, unlocking the potential of a project, and most of all, ensuring that it is safe and stable.

After completing this program, our students will be very well suited to serve in both the private and public sectors around the world as,

  • Structural Design Consultant 
  • Bridge Engineer
  • Structural Health Monitoring expert
  • Academician/Researcher
  • Engineer in State and national Public Sectors
  • Entrepreneur

Indus University has a separate team for the Training & Placement Department (T & P Dept.) – that recreates the crucial role of connecting two important ends school and Industry. It shows a bridge between schools and constituent institutions of the University and Industry. 

Training & Placement Department (T & P Dept.) is the epicentre for career guidance to students of all programmes and streams pursuing their studies at the University. It offers overall career solutions to the students by guiding them to decide and pursue their dream careers.
