Structural Engineering Course Details

Structures' study and design are the focus of structural engineering, a subfield of Civil Engineering. Structures like buildings, skyscrapers, bridges, dams, airports, and factories are designed by experts in this subject. A two-year master's programme in structural engineering is offered by Indus University and was created with the present demand of international construction companies. One of the distinctive features of this degree at Indus University is the studio-based teaching and learning pedagogy.

One may choose to enrol in this highly sought-after programme after earning a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. The subject of structural engineering is comprehensively taught to students over the course of the two-year programme through a variety of theory and practical workshops. Through a full year of dissertation work, the students are also given guidance for future research and start-up activities.

Laboratories for Practical

Lab for Material Testing

For high-quality buildings, testing and inspection of construction materials are essential. Students can examine a variety of building materials' qualities in the Material Testing Laboratory, including fresh and hardened concrete, cement, aggregates, bricks, and AAC blocks.

Laboratory for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering

The Laboratory is outfitted to carry out the important characterisation of rocks and soils, as well as a number of cutting-edge testing facilities. The goal of this section is to use cutting-edge expertise to address issues pertaining to the subsurface. It consists of the following:

-Soil mechanics, which is necessary to recognise, define, and research the mechanics of soil and rock.

-Applied soil mechanics is a field that puts behavioural science into practice.

Laboratory for Earthquake Engineering

Earthquake engineering is a branch of science that focuses on reducing seismic risk to levels that are socioeconomically acceptable in order to protect society, the natural environment, and the built environment from earthquakes. It has historically been restricted to the study of how structures and geo-structures respond to seismic loading and is therefore regarded as a subfield of both structural and geotechnical engineering.

Computational Laboratory

Multi-physics challenges, which are often the simultaneous combinations of various physical phenomena, are a common occurrence in engineering domains like Civil Engineering. The Department is outfitted with a computational laboratory with a capacity of around 60 seats and systems updated with software such as AutoCAD, Staad Pro V8i, Revit, and MS Projects to handle such issues.

Workshops, Skill development programmes

In Present world, learning provides constant challenges but is essential to expanding one's knowledge base and developing new skills. Knowledge and skill must be balanced to meet industrial standards. For interaction sessions pertaining to respective fields, workshops and expert lectures are held with expert speakers from Companies & Research Institutes as well as in-house specialists. To inform the students of the current employment prospects in many domains of information, technology, and research, such workshops are often organized. In order to help students be ready for their future employment, mock test series that aim to enhance students' aptitude and reasoning abilities and familiarize them with the format of various placement and other competitive exams are frequently organized.

Construction Engineer: Building, bridge, and dam construction are all projects that a construction engineer is in charge of supervising.

Civil Engineer: Civil Engineering is a vast profession that includes designing, organising, and supervising numerous civil projects.

Site Engineer: As the title of the position suggests, a Site Engineer's role entails managing the technical aspects of the construction site as a whole.

Design Engineer: The Design Engineer is responsible for developing the designs and drawings for the upcoming civil work.

Placement Cell at Indus

Indus University has an autonomous vertical - Training & Placement Department (T & P Dept.) - that connects two vital ends: education and the industry. It exemplifies a link between schools and university constituent associations (entry-level input) and the sector (output-end at the finishing level).

The Training and Placement Department was established in 2006. It was previously affiliated with the Indus Institute of Technology & Engineering until becoming a part of the Indus University in 2012.

The Training and Placement Department is the hub for career assistance for students from all programmes and streams at the university. It provides students with overall career solutions by encouraging them to choose and pursue their ideal vocations.
