Tech. program is offered in five major fields of specialization, viz. Structural Engineering, Hydraulic Structures, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Earthquake Engineering & Disaster Management. At the Doctoral level, the Department offers Ph. D. program in Structural Engineering, Hydraulic Structures, Environmental Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering.
RESEARCH COLLABORATIONS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
The faculty members have published significant number of research articles in International Journals, National Journals and the Proceedings of various International and National Seminars, Conferences, Symposia and Workshops. The faculty members have also published several textbooks and prepared appreciable number of Technical Reports, Laboratory Manuals and other Teaching Aids. In the last 5 years 574 Research Papers (297 in Journals and 277 in Conferences) have been published by the faculty members.
Many research projects sponsored by A.I.C.T.E, U.G.C., D.S.T., C.S.I.R., D.R.D.O.,C.S.T.(U.P.), M.O.E.F. and Indian Oil Corporation, Govt. of India have been successfully completed and many under progress. Joint research projects are currently underway in collaboration with the government under Smart Cities Scheme and PAVITRA. Currently Research Projects worth Rs. 1040 Lacs are going on. There has been tremendous thrust in the consultancy work in the department in the last five years. In the last five years, a large number of Industrial Consultancy projects of worth Rs. 692 lacs have been completed.
The Department has organized one international and one national conference in 2019.
