Program Outline

The Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Civil Engineering (Construction Technology) degree program is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and offers Choice Based Credit System education. In addition to core courses, students can opt for discipline specific elective subjects, open elective subjects from different institutes of the University. In addition, this program is uniquely designed to increase the employability of the students and prepare them to work in a multi-disciplinary work environment. The program offers major degree in Civil Engineering (Construction Technology) and allows students to opt for minor specializations as per their interests.

Construction Technology deals with the tools, technologies, machinery and software used to improve theprocess of construction.Advancements in construction technology such as semi-automated and automated construction equipment,have led the field of Civil Engineering into the new-era fast changing world.As a result, we are able to build stronger, taller, and more energy efficient structures. Technology has made construction sites safer and workers more efficient. It has allowed us to increase productivity, improve collaboration, and tackle more complex projects.Today, new technologies in construction are being developed at a breakneck pace. What seemed like future tech 10, 20 years ago like connected equipment and tools, telematics, mobile apps, autonomous heavy equipment, drones, robots, augmented and virtual reality, and 3D printed buildings are now here and being deployed and used across the world.Hence, there is bright future for the students pursuing Construction Technology Specialization.
