Masters of Engineering in Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering is a post graduate course which teach about all problems about Soil Mechanics and its Foundation Engineering. Candidates learn about how to identify, solve and formulate problems in this field. They get the ability to do subsurface investigation, to analyze and interpret the Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering data critically.
They also learn about designs, various skills and modern Soil Mechanics- Foundation Engineering tools and get opportunity to practice the same.
Candidates gain experience of team work with multi disciplinary professionals in solving Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering problems.
Apart from course details, social issues, ethical responsibilities and moral issues are also taught to students.
Graduate candidates from the field of Science or any other related field like B.Sc. in Agriculture, B.E., etc. The minimum passing marks varies from institute to institute and candidates need to check the same from the administration of institutes.
Being a technical course most of the institutes conduct entrance examinations and candidates performing good in this can secure their seats. Some institutes may also offer admission on merit list.
The duration for this course is 2 years in regular mode. These 2 years are equivalent to 4 semesters, each having 6 months duration.
Further study options
After successfully completing post graduation, candidates are eligible for good jobs in India as well as abroad. As learning is endless there are some options available for candidates who are interested for further education. These options include Research based courses like M.Phil (Master in Philosophy) and PhD (Doctorate in Philosophy). Other options include Diploma and short term courses in related field to have broadened scopes for job.
The course starts with basic topics like Soil properties and Behavior, Subsurface Investigation and Instrumentation, Strength and Deformation Behavior of Soil, etc. Candidates also learn about Theoretical Soil Mechanics and its Advanced Mathematical Methods.
Topics like Dynamics of Soils and Foundations, Deep Foundations, Shallow Foundations and Ground Improvement Techniques are also included in the course to have better understanding of the subject.
The course also includes some laboratory sessions like Advanced Soil Mechanics Laboratory. The elective topics of courses are Finite Element Method and Applications, Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils, Earth Pressure and Earth Retaining Structures, Rock Mechanics and Applications, Pavement Engineering, etc.
These candidates can work in the field of Agriculture, construction sectors, research sectors, etc.
