STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING

Structural engineering is a sub-discipline of civil engineering in which structural engineers are trained to design the 'bones and muscles' that create the form and shape of manmade structures. Structural engineers need to understand and calculate the stability, strength and rigidity of built structures for buildings and non-building structures. The structural designs are integrated with those of other designers such as architects and building services engineer and often supervise the construction of projects by contractors on site. They can also be involved in the design of machinery, medical equipment, and vehicles where structural integrity affects functioning and safety. See glossary of structural engineering. Structural engineering theory is based upon applied physical laws and empirical knowledge of the structural performance of different materials and geometries. Structural engineering design uses a number of relatively simple structural engineers to build complex structural systems. Structural engineers are responsible for making creative and efficient use of funds, structural elements and materials to achieve these goals.

Structural engineering depends upon a detailed knowledge of applied mechanics, materials science and applied mathematics to understand and predict how structures support and resist self-weight and imposed loads. To apply the knowledge successfully a structural engineer generally requires detailed knowledge of relevant empirical and theoretical design codes, the techniques of structural analysis, as well as some knowledge of the corrosion resistance of the materials and structures, especially when those structures are exposed to the external environment. Since the 1990s, specialist software has become available to aid in the design of structures, with the functionality to assist in the drawing, analysing and designing of structures with maximum precision; examples include AutoCAD, StaadPro, ETABS, Prokon, Revit Structure, Induct RCB, etc. Such software may also take into consideration environmental loads, such as from earthquakes and winds.

Structural engineers are responsible for engineering design and structural analysis. Entry-level structural engineers may design the individual structural elements of a structure, such as the beams and columns of a building. More experienced engineers may be responsible for the structural design and integrity of an entire system, such as a building.

Structural engineers often specialize in particular types of structures, such as buildings, bridges, pipelines, industrial, tunnels, vehicles, ships, aircraft and spacecraft. Structural engineers who specialize in buildings often specialize in particular construction materials such as concrete, steel, wood, masonry, alloys and composites, and may focus on particular types of buildings such as offices, schools, hospitals, residential, and so forth.

DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AND COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS (DECE)

Master of Technology in Digital Electronics and communication systems is postgraduate Electronics and Communication Engineering Program. The course gives an overview of different Digital communication techniques used in the present scenarios, It is also giving an overview of the usage of hardware languages in design and implementation. The course covers a wide range of computer-based tools that assist engineer in their design activities. It involves both software and special-purpose hardware. The courses provide students with a solid scientific/technical background and research capabilities in the design, development and manufacture of the electronic device and system used in a wide spectrum of applications. This course aims to provide a comprehensive education at par with excellence in information and communication with well-qualified professors with decades of experience in the field of teaching and industry.

The course is beneficial to develop skills in the students for successful careers in an industry that meet the needs of Indian and multinational companies, through global rigorous education. It helps to train students with good scientific and engineering breadth, including proficiency in software language and use of latest software tolls so as to comprehend analyses, design and create novel products and solutions for the real-life problems.

Candidates can easily avail job opportunities in manufacturing industries and service organization such as broadcasting, consult, data communication, entertainment, research and development, and system support. The candidates can also work in modern multimedia service firms that are involved in the real-time transfer of information through video conferencing and internet broadcasting.
