COURSE DESCRIPTION


M.Tech. Earthquake Engineering or Master of Technology in Earthquake Engineering is a two-year postgraduate programme. Earthquake engineering is the scientific field concerned with protecting society, the natural and the man-made environment from earthquakes by limiting the seismic risk to socio-economically acceptable levels. The course includes the kinds of engineering needed to design and construct the physical features that we live and work in every day:  buildings, bridges, airports, highways, water supply systems, and so on. Earthquake Engineering as a profession in India is a newly introduced field in academics and industry. Since 60% of Indian geography is declared sensitive to earthquakes, the role of earthquake engineers proves vital in building quake-resistant structures. It is an interdisciplinary study area and involves a study of civil engineering, geophysics, soil sciences, mathematics, statistics, weather sciences and many other allied study disciplines including computer sciences and Internet technologies. Research for earthquake engineering means both field and analytical investigation or experimentation intended for discovery and scientific explanation of earthquake engineering related facts, revision of conventional concepts in the light of new findings, and practical application of the developed theories.


M.Tech. Earthquake Engineering Eligibility :-

  • B.E/B.Tech. or equivalent degree with minimum 50%marks or equivalent CGPA.
  • Some of the very reputed universities and institutes conduct entrance examination for admission.

M.Tech. Earthquake Engineering Course Suitability

  • The course is suitable to illustrate to students of structural and architectural engineering the problems and solutions in attaining efficient earthquake-resistant structures and facilities.
  • Graduates will be able to determine the vulnerability of ordinary and special structures to seismic actions; apply both current seismic codes and novel unconventional methodologies of seismic design, repair and assessment; and assess the adequacy, economic viability and lifesaving effectiveness of pre-event risk mitigation and post-event risk management solutions.

M.Tech. Earthquake Engineering Syllabus

Syllabus of Earthquake Engineering as prescribed by various Universities and Colleges.

How is M.Tech. Earthquake Engineering Course Beneficial?

  • Beneficial to Design, construct and maintain structures to perform at earthquake exposure up to the expectations and in compliance with building codes.
  • They can analyse earthquake characteristics and associated effects on structures, including linear and nonlinear responses.
  • They can apply the basic principles for seismic design and construction of structures in accordance with the provisions of International Building Codes.
  • They will be able to understand the concepts of dynamic equations of motion and perform analysis for dynamic systems in civil engineering applications.
