The M.Tech in Construction Technology and Management is a professional engineering programme that deals with the construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, and railways.
The modern-day construction technology and management graduates should have a wider knowledge of surveying grading design, drainage, pavement, water supply, sewer service, dams, electric and communications supply and preparations of construction plans.
Construction technology and management must possess technical knowledge of geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering and construction engineering as applied to residential, commercial, industrial and public works projects of all sizes and levels of construction. In addition, present-day construction technology and management should be able to use primavera and virtual reality tools for the design and visualization of complex civil engineering structures. If they possess knowledge of artificial intelligence, it will be an added advantage for the maintenance and monitoring of infrastructural projects.
A growing population and urbanization mean more buildings, new water systems, roads, and waste treatment plants leading to increased demand for construction technology and management.
