Master of Technology in Infrastructure Engineering Design
Faculty of Technology – CEPT University
Infrastructure is an integral part of society and plays a vital role in its economic and social development. In a developing country like India, infrastructure development has become an integral part of our growth story creating a strong need for professionals in the infrastructure sector. The primary objective of M. Tech in Engineering Design (Infrastructure) (MIED) is to cater to this demand of infrastructure industry and produce professionals with specific skill sets aligned with industry needs. The two-year program leading to an award of Master of Technology in Infrastructure Engineering Design is designed to enhance skills & knowledge of structural design for the students and working professionals in the construction and civil engineering sector.
MIED program aims to combine infrastructure engineering and design enabling students to add complementary aspects such as infrastructure planning, financing, and management. A student potentially can develop focus through verticals and horizontals. Vertically, the sector is of primary interest and the choice of focus area follows. Alternatively, a student could develop skills horizontally, in which the focus area is of primary interest covering more than one sector.
The course curriculum is designed to encourage students’ learning by a mix of lecture courses and hands-on application, via studio courses. The lecture courses focus on building theoretical understanding with the scope to explore its empirical application in studio courses. A major portion of the mandatory courses' credits is studios courses where students work on real-life like contexts, emphasizing the importance of practice.
CEPT pedagogy includes a wide variety of courses with a significant emphasis on practical applications through hands-on studio courses projects (designed to create real-life like situations) and independent dissertation. Leading infrastructure professionals are invited to deliver guest lectures and engage in interactive discussions with students.
Admissions and Prerequisites
In the first stage of scrutiny, all applications received will be scrutinized for eligibility based on information provided in the online application forms. All candidates who meet eligibility criteria will be considered for stage 2 (entrance exam). Subsequently, a shortlist of 300-350 candidates are cleared for the stage which includes interviews (in person or via teleconference). Final merit list is prepared based on the academic performance in UG program, score in the entrance exam, score an interview, and total months of professional experience.
Applicants for the M.Tech. program in the general category should have a minimum of 55 % aggregate marks and those in the reserved categories should have a minimum of 50 % aggregate marks in Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in Civil Engineering/Construction Technology/Architecture/Environmental Engineering from a recognized University/Institution.
International Entry Requirements
CEPT’s guiding principle for International Admissions is to seek equivalence between International standards achieved and those of Indian home students. There are differences between Europe, America and India in degree length, academic standards and award structure. CEPT will therefore consider each International application on its merits seeking international equivalence and bear in mind any professional requirements that these Programs have.
