MSc. In Structural Engineering


Structural engineering is a specialized field within civil engineering that focuses on the design, analysis, and construction of load-bearing structures. Structural engineers apply principles from mechanics, materials science, and mathematics to ensure that structures can safely withstand the applied loads and environmental conditions throughout their lifespan.


The M.Sc. in Structural Engineering program provides advanced knowledge and skills in various aspects of structural engineering to produce highly competent professionals. The program emphasizes research and practical applications, allowing students to work on real-world projects and contribute to the advancement of the field. Through coursework, seminars, and a thesis or research project, students will develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills essential for successful careers in structural engineering.


Structural engineers play a crucial role in ensuring the safety, functionality, and sustainability of the built environment. They are responsible for designing structures that can withstand various loads, such as gravity, wind, earthquakes, and other environmental factors, while optimizing material usage and minimizing environmental impact. With the increasing demand for infrastructure development, urbanization, and the need for resilient structures in the face of natural disasters and climate change, the expertise of structural engineers is indispensable. Graduates of the program will be prepared for diverse career opportunities in consulting firms, construction companies, government agencies, research institutions, and academia, both locally and internationally. They will have the potential to shape the future of infrastructure development, ensuring the safety and longevity of structures that support modern societies.


The eligibility for the admission in Structural Engineering is based on following criteria:

  • Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, from recognized institutions or universities.
  • The candidate shall appear and pass the Entrance test.
