M.Tech in Transportation Engineering and Management(M.Tech.)

Course Duration

4 Semesters
(2 Years)

Eligibility Criteria

B.E / B.Tech in Civil Engineering/Construction Technology and Management with a minimum of 50% (45% in case of SC/ST) marks in aggregate of any recognized University / Institution or AMIE or any other qualification recognized as equivalent thereto.


Civil Engineering primarily deals with the planning, design, construction, and operation of infrastructural facilities essential to modern life, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites. Major disciplines within civil engineering that are closely interrelated are structural, environmental, geotechnical, water resources, transportation, construction and urban planning.

Transportation Engineering is one of the major branches of Civil Engineering and it involves the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of transportation facilities. The facilities support air, highway, railroad, pipeline, water, and even space transportation. Transportation engineering includes sizing of transportation facilities, selection of materials and design of pavement and geometry of roadway.

In transportation engineering, students acquire advanced know-how concerning the planning, design, operations, performance, evaluation, maintenance and rehabilitation of transportation systems including their economics and social aspects.

The M.Tech. in Transportation Engineering and Management is a postgraduate programme to nurture motivated, innovative, creative thinking graduates to fill the roles of transportation engineers and managers who can conceptualise, design, analyse, develop and manage transportation systems to meet modern-day requirements.


  • Prepare postgraduates in Civil Engineering who will excel in their career and contribute with commitment and dedication to the progress of the nation.
  • Enhance the understanding of engineering principles of Civil Engineering systems.
  • Graduates will be prepared with a solid foundation in mathematics, sciences, and technical skills needed to analyse and design civil infrastructure systems.
  • Graduates will be trained to become team leaders, and will successfully address open-ended problems by applying critical thinking.
  • Promotes research output.
  • Aids students to organise conferences, seminars, workshops, special lectures, summer schools, technical talks, faculty development programmes etc. on emerging areas.
