Research in Civil Engineering

“Research is an expression of faith in the possibility of progress. The drive that leads scholars to study a topic has to include the belief that new things can be discovered, that newer can be better, and that greater depth of understanding is achievable. Research, especially academic research, is a form of optimism about the human condition.” ~ Henry Rosovsky

Solving the problems faced by society by providing reliable, safe, and cost-effective designs, innovative materials, and systems have been the driving force behind the research team of our school. Tangible focus and resources are implemented to advance the existing trends in the field of civil engineering. A wide array of tools and systems are deployed, ranging from Nano level to macro level.

The school conducts state of the art research in the following fields of Civil Engineering:

  • Dynamics and earthquake engineering
  • Smart / Hybrid Composite materials
  • New generation concrete
  • Environmental Geotechnics
  • Deep Foundations
  • Nanotechnology
  • Machine learning and deep learning neural network applications in Civil Engineering.
  • Sustainability in Construction Management

Our research fields are extensively studied to align with the broader fields of research as identified by the Government of India. The following research canvas depicts our research fields contributing to the broader areas.

Dedicated faculty have been guiding future researchers in their pursuit of a Doctoral degree in our institute. We have state-of-the-art labs, analysis software researchers use, and a research culture where young minds thrive.
