Admissions to Post-Graduate Programmes

of Department of Civil Engineering

in July 2012

  • The Department
  • Established in 1961, the Department of Civil Engineering at IIT Kanpur aims at producing high-quality technical human resources to meet the needs of the nation― industries, R&D organizations and educational institutes. The Department is active in conceptual teaching, research in frontier areas, national-level consulting, and strong outreach activities.
  • The Post-Graduate Programmes
  • The Department offers Master of Technology (MTech) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in the following specializations:
    • Engineering Geosciences
    • Environmental Engineering (only PhD degree)
    • Geoinformatics
    • Geotechnical Engineering
    • Hydraulics & Water Resources Engineering
    • Structural Engineering
    • Transportation Engineering
  • The emphasis of the post-graduate programmes is on learning fundamental principles in the subject area, developing deep understanding of a facet of the chosen specialization, honing creative & independent thinking, and on adapting & solving problems of inter-disciplinary nature. Admissions to these programmes are not restricted to only civil engineers. For example, the MTech programme in Engineering Geosciences is also open to graduates with M.Sc. degree in geosciences. In addition, the department also administers an interdisciplinary MTech program in Environmental Engineering & Management (EEM), which is open to graduates with bachelor’s degree in a large number of subjects; for details on the EEM Programme, please contact Dr. S.N. Tripathi (, Convener, EEM Programme.
  • Details of admission procedures, eligibility requirements, financial assistance and course requirements, please select the link of “Academics” followed by “Postgraduate Program” and “Admissions” on this web-page. The last date for receiving completed application forms is April 16, 2012.
