Ph.D. in Civil Engineering is a minimum three-year doctoral degree course. It can extend up to 5 years depending upon individual candidates.
The eligibility conditions for admission into Ph.D. programme is a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering or any branch of engineering or its equivalent from a recognised university with a minimum of 55 per cent marks or a CGPA score of a minimum of 5.5 on a ten-point scale.
Civil Engineering encompasses different areas like mechanics of materials, analysis and design of different components of infrastructure, and the management of natural resources. The programme deals with the design, construction and maintenance of crucial structures for the general public like roads, bridges, dams, railways and so on. A doctorate in Civil Engineering helps candidates develop a critical understanding of the discipline. Candidates acquire an in-depth understanding of this branch of engineering and develop specialised research skills. They can research areas of infrastructure and eco-friendly technologies.
The department of Civil Engineering at GIET University has well-experienced faculty members who guide candidates in pursuing their research. The University also has well-equipped infrastructure for advanced research. The department has been at the forefront in areas such as theoretical and applied mechanics, reliability engineering, large-scale testing and computation, earthquake engineering, water engineering and so on.
