School of Engineering & Technology

M.Tech. Water Resources Engineering is a postgraduate programme in Water Resource Engineering. The programme focuses on the management and development of water resources and water flows and quality in the natural environment while addressing the multidisciplinary character of human activities dealing with water

Learning Perspective

Water Resources Engineers are concerned with the problems associated with the use and control of water. Water resources engineering is the profession that is responsible for the planning, development and management of water resources. From estimating the amount of water available to designing the physical and non-physical infrastructure needed to meet the water needs of society and the environment, civil engineers play a central role within a multidisciplinary team.

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings, and railways.

Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles for solving the problems of society, and its history is intricately linked to advances in the understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history. Civil Engineering is a wide-ranging profession, including several specialized sub-disciplines, its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, mechanics and other fields.

Infrastructure Engineering and Construction Management engineering helps the students to learn about construction of the building, townships, roads, bridges and transportation. Infrastructure engineers do this work through designing, proper planning and use of the environment management techniques. The program of Infrastructure engineering produces highly skilled construction and project management engineers. These engineers are well aware of the planning and designing of the project, cost estimation and execution of the project.

M.Tech. in Water Resources Engineering is a 2- year, full- time specialized course divided into 4 semesters. Water Resources Engineering is a specialty of civil engineering that focuses on water supplies, irrigation and waste disposal. It also addresses methods for controlling water to avoid water-related damage and catastrophes. It also deals with the optimization of system with various components of resources like irrigation, dams and reservoirs.

M.Tech. in Structural Engineering involves advanced study of the course’s components such as Structural Mechanics, Finite Element Analysis, Structural Dynamics, Structural Reliability and Optimization, Reinforced and Pre-Stressed Concrete, Steel Structures, Design for Wind and Earthquake, Tall Buildings And Towers, Computer Applications In Structural Engineering, etc.

Diploma in Civil Engineering is a 3-year long course in engineering, specializing in the design, construction, and maintenance of physical and naturally-built environment, such as roads, bridges, irrigation, environmental engineering, elements of structures, canals, dams and buildings. The minimum eligibility criterion required for the candidates is to pass 10 th grade with minimum 50% marks.

Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline and the oldest which deals with the constructed environment.Civil Engineers are the reason behind all those towering buildings, highways and bridges railways, dams, irrigations ,water supply,that we witness in our day to day lives. Other avenues of civil engineering workplaces include road construction, building construction, township planning, metro construction, among various others.

We have large number of high qualified faculty in civil engineering with rich industry experience and they have spent significant time in such different fields of Civil Engineering like Structures, Geo-specialized, Environmental, Transportation, Fluid Mechanics and Water Resource Engineering.

The mentor as a guide offers supportive exhortation on how educators, executives, and vocation counselors in science and designing can turn out to be better tutors to their understudies. Mentors to each section help them take full advantage of their instructive experience, by acquainting them with and making them alright with a particular disciplinary culture, and by offering help with the quest for appropriate business. Different themes shrouded in the guide incorporate vocation arranging, time the executives, composing advancement, and dependable logical lead. Likewise included is a significant rundown of bibliographical and Internet assets on tutoring and related points.

The reason for the Civil Engineering Alumni Association (CEAA) is to dedication and pride among graduated class and companions by creating and upgrading their proceeded with relationship with the office.. Our graduated class and companions effectively bolster the office by:

  • Tutoring understudies
  • Introducing classes
  • Addressing classes
  • Going to understudy supported exercises
  • Supporting understudy associations

Any one can take direct admission through JNU entrance exam JNU-JEST 2020. And there is a interview also.
