Master of Science in Civil Engineering KPT/JPS(PA 8017)07/22

Masters Degrees in Civil Engineering would produce highly competitive researchers and professionals in the fields of civil engineering capable to taking challenges involved in designing, implementing and maintaining vital infrastructure, from everyday tunnels, bridges and railways to flood barriers and earthquake protection systems. The students will be given a stimulating teaching environment which blends conventional lectures and tutorials with online materials. The curriculum would include supportive programs with industry and other academic institutions, including new developments, current implementation status and prospects of future expansion. The program would impart and enhance capability and capacity to develop a healthy body and mind to become a disciplined individual, disciplined manager, and disciplined leader.

For successful completion of Masters degree in LUC, each candidate should publish minimum of Two research articles in scopus indexed journals, with Lincoln affiliation.

The aim of this program is to produce graduates who are both skilled in structural engineering principles and have the ability to apply and solve complex open-ended engineering works and problems. The program of Master of Science in Civil Engineering will produce Civil Engineers who are:

  • Knowledgeable to apply practical skills to face the challenges and opportunities of the rapidly evolving civil engineering field.

  • Capable of demonstrating individual, professional and social responsibility through value and attitudes.

  • Able to organize and relate ideas coherently in written, oral, and graphic form using standard conventions and tools and synthesize information, and draw reasoned inferences in the field of civil engineering.

  • Proficient with information management skills to pursue advanced educational opportunities, along with the development of life-long learning skills for enquiry based learning.

Masters Degrees in Civil Engineering program is to encourage students to make unceasing and diligent efforts to pursue holistic self-development to cultivate self-discipline and integrity, to nurture creativity into broad-minded future leaders with a global outlook. Civil and structural engineers work in a range of sectors, particularly the construction sector, on buildings of all kinds of transport and communications infrastructure.
