Faculty members are also involved in conducting training for working professionals in various government departments to keep them updated on recent and future trends.
The department boasts of 2 Post graduate courses in Structural Engineering and Geo-tech, and UG program with electives in domain of Structural Analysis and Geo-tech.
The department conducts technical competitions in model making of various aspects of Earthquake Resistant Design, Quiz competitions on Structural aspects with a view to broaden the horizons of knowledge for the students and to bring out their creativity and ability to work as team. Industry-Academia meet is arranged each year by the department to help its Post graduate students to develop a know-how of the technical advancements as well the Industry problems that can be taken up for their dissertation topics. In its endeavour to encourage Industry-Academia collaboration the department coordinates Expert Talks on different topics in order to make the students as well as faculty members stay abreast of latest development in the field of Structural engineering, Geo-technical Engineering, Concrete and allied construction materials, Earthquake engineering. Department also coordinates a number of Short Term Training Programmes, Industry visits, motivates students to participate in Technical events and mentors them to come up ace.
