Southern School of Engineering & Technology (SSET)

Department of Civil Engineering


The main objective of M.Sc. Structural Engineering program at ISP is to impart state-of-the art knowledge to the civil engineers regarding the advanced analysis and design procedures of the civil engineering structures. The scope of the M.Sc. structural engineering program is as follows:

  • In-depth knowledge about the physical and chemical properties, performance characteristics, production and modification of the materials used in the construction of civil engineering structures
  • To impart expertise to the civil engineers in advanced methods and techniques of structural analysis such as Finite element methods, matrix structures analysis and analytical techniques
  • To familiarize the students with the analysis and design of pre-stressed concrete structures and also the design of structures against seismic hazards
