    M Tech in Geo Technical Engineering

    About M.Tech in Geo Technical Engineering

    M.Tech in Geo-Technical Engineering is a specialised branch of civil engineering. It is a two years postgraduate degree programme that involves the study of the various kinds of soil and its functioning under the influence of loads and soil-water interactions. 

    The course is designed to train students to handle risks from natural disasters like earthquakes, landslides, cyclones, floods etc. The course helps students analyse, plan and create structures in such a manner to ensure minimum risk in case of a critical situation. 

    The course curriculum helps students understand the features, fundamental principles and mechanism of soil, rock and subsurface materials. After the completion of the course, a student will be able to identify, interpret, generate and apply knowledge and skills to evaluate, test and measure the data collected at both quantitative and qualitative level.
