More about the Course
M.Tech in Geotechnical Engineering course involves in the study of application of principles of rock mechanics and soil mechanics for investigation and subsurface materials and its conditions. It also involves in the study of rock, soil, bedrock and fault distribution properties of the site, such study helps in assessing risks from natural hazards like earthquakes, wing, land slides etc. Based on these findings, geotechnical engineers will analyse, plan the design and construct foundations and other support structures.
Some of the subjects covered in this course are Experimental Geo-Mechanics, Deep Foundations, Shallow Foundations, Ground Improvement, Applied Mathematics, Geo-Mechanics and Soil Behavior, Deformation Behaveiour of Soils etc.
Geotechnical Engineers are involved in duties like site supervising, inspecting soil, rocks, bedrock, project analyzing, designing and constructing foundation and other necessary structures, cost estimating, project management etc. Candidates who have successfully completed the M.Tech in Geotechnical Engineering Course can find job opportunities in organizations involved in construction of public structure, commercial buildings, mining, construction firms, consultancies, extraction of petroleum and natural gas etc. These candidates can also get job opportunities in public sector organizations like municipal corporations, government port trusts, PWD, urban planning departments, Indian railways, metro rail corporations etc. Some of the job positions offered for these candidates are listed below:
- Business Analyst
- Site Civil Engineer
- Technical Officer
- Civil Engineer
