Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education

M.Tech – Civil (Structural Engineering)


To be a Centre of Excellence in Civil Engineering through Quality Education and Research.


(a) To produce Civil Engineers of high caliber, technical skills and ethical values to serve society and nation

(b) To inculcate acumen for lifelong learning, research and capability to adapt to various challenges in the domain of civil engineering

(c) To practice ethics and provide sustainable environment conscious solutions to problems in civil engineering


The Department of Civil Engineering was started in the year 1984 and currently offers B.Tech. programme in Civil Engineering and M.Tech. Programme in Structural Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Besides, the department also offers Ph.D. programmes in all disciplines of Civil Engineering. The department has grown tremendously over the past thirty years and is now recognized as one of the major engineering departments in KARE. The department has excellent infrastructure with ICT enabled, smart and video capturing class rooms, well established laboratories, department library, Seminar halls, and Lecture halls. The department houses Faculty members with PhD degree from NUS, IITs, Anna University and reputed institutions and foreign exposure in structural, environmental, water resources, transportation and construction engineering & management. The Department of Civil Engineering puts all efforts to create incomparable civil engineers using advanced teaching practises and learning aids for undergraduate students and state of the art research facilities for postgraduate students and doctoral candidates.

The department designs the curriculum and syllabi regularly keeping in mind the industries requirements and imparts sound technical knowledge through theory and practical classes to the students. In addition, the students are given industrial training in leading industries and encouraged to participate in co-curricular and extracurricular activities to develop their overall personality. The department is frequently organizing conferences, seminars, guest lectures, workshops, symposiums and training programmes for the betterment of the students. Since inception, the department has been producing civil engineering graduates with outstanding skills and has been achieving good placement records in reputed organizations in India and abroad. The department is marching forward to achieve excellence in every area of specialisation in civil engineering and aims to provide international training and placement to all civil engineering students.


Environmental protection is an important issue for society today as scientific research provides evidence of increasing air pollution and the pollution of surface and ground water resources. Students will learn how to design and develop processes and equipments that provide practical solutions to problems caused by increasing consumption and waste, and the potential threats to biodiversity. Projects include learning how to clean up toxic material that has seeped into the ground and designing an effective wastewater treatment plant. Efforts to prevent problems before they occur are the main challenge environmental engineers are exposed to.

Our graduates have found employment in engineering consultancies, environmental agencies, government departments, and as designers and advisors for engineering projects.
