Curriculum - B.Tech in Civil Engineering and MS by Research in Building Science and Engineering.

 

Five-year Dual-Degree in Building Science & Engineering
(leading to B.Tech in Civil Engg. and MS by Research in Building Science & Engg.)
 
Nov 7, 2014
 
IIIT Hyderabad introduces an innovative Building Science & Engineering (BSE) teaching and research programme.
 
The program aims at educating engineers and conduct research to build an environmentally sustainable habitat by integrating environment, materials, services, science and engineering while making use of latest technology in computer science and electronics. Given the multi-disciplinary nature of the proposed program, the program will address two broad areas; R&D gaps and Knowledge gaps and would collaborate with other institutions to address the skill gaps.
