The 4-year full-time, B.Tech Civil Engineering program promotes academic excellence in the field of civil and environmental engineering with a focus on higher education, research, innovation and entrepreneurship amongst graduates.Pune, 20th May 2022: Under the aegis of the School of Civil Engineering, MIT World Peace University (Formerly MIT Pune) offers prestigious programs in B.Tech Civil Engineering and B.Tech Civil Engineering (Smart Infrastructure and Construction Engineering) with a legacy of more than two decades to interested candidates. From the smallest hut to eye-catching structures, civil engineers manifest their work invoking science, art and ethics; to conceive, design, build, monitor, operate and maintain infrastructure, transportation and public utility projects. Keeping in mind the dynamic nature of the industry and its requirements, the School of Civil Engineering aims to nurture and guide young minds to develop bright and competent civil engineers.To provide relevant experiential learning, the School of Civil Engineering houses a Centre of Excellence for Innovative Design and Construction Technology initiative in collaboration with the Building Science Department of Politecnico De Milano, Italy. As part of its constant efforts to foster industry-academic partnerships, the School of Civil Engineering has also signed numerous MoUs with organizations like PCERF, BAI, KL Structures USA, BSDC College UK, and Plymouth University UK. Further, students of civil engineering can also make use of the structural dynamic laboratory, funded by AICTE’s MODROB scheme, to test seismic response assessment of existing civil engineering structures.Dr Shantini Bokil, Head of School of Engineering at MIT-WPU, said, “In this era of industrialisation and automation, the civil engineering sector has adorned a new outlook integrating sustainable development and new technologies. At the School of Engineering, we take pride in shaping future civil engineers and strive towards continuous improvement through evolving pedagogy, long-lasting collaborations and social innovation coupled with experiential learning.”The 4-year full-time, B.Tech Civil Engineering program promotes academic excellence in the field of civil and environmental engineering with a focus on higher education, research, innovation and entrepreneurship amongst graduates. Students can choose from a plethora of majors such as — Infrastructure, Construction Engineering and Management; Structural Analysis and Design, Materials; Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering; Transportation (Roads, Bridges, Railway, Airport, Docks and Harbors); and Water Resources Engineering.The B.Tech Civil Engineering (Smart Infrastructure and Construction Engineering) program provides students with the knowledge of technologies that can be applied to solve infrastructure problems associated with ageing infrastructure and growing demands. With increasing urbanization, urban areas are expected to house 40% of India’s population and contribute 75% of India’s GDP by 2030.Taking cognisance of this, the pedagogy followed for the future-oriented course involves smart technologies including sensors, crowdsourcing and citizen science, actuators, data transmission, IoT, big data analytics, and blockchain. These concepts can further be applied to smart infrastructure and construction management. Students pursuing the program can also opt from a host of majors including — Intelligent Transport System, Sustainable Construction Materials and Management, Intelligent Irrigation Technologies, and Automation in Civil Construction.Post completion of the course, graduates from the Civil Engineering programs can take up career opportunities such as — Construction Project Engineer, Consultant (Structural, Environmental, Construction Management and Surveying), Infrastructure Planner and Development Engineer, Safety Auditor, Quality Control and Assurance Engineer, GIS Mapper, and Metro and Infrastructure Engineer to name a few.

MIT World Peace University (MIT-WPU, formerly known as MIT Pune) has a legacy of 4 decades of educating India’s youth. Ranked as India’s 3rd Best Private University, MIT-WPU boasts an acclaimed faculty and a network of over 1,00,000 global alumni.
