NRI Institute of Technology, Hyderabad is one of the top engineering colleges offering advanced and Infrastructure aligned  M.E, M.Tech programs in Civil Engineering courses. Department of Civil Engineering offers PG Program – M.Tech in Highway (Transportation) Engineering is an engineering discipline branching from civil engineering that involves the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of roads, bridges, and tunnels to ensure safe and effective transportation of people and goods.

Transportation Engineering or Highway engineering became prominent towards the latter half of the 20th Century after World War 2. Standards of Highway Engineering are continuously being improved. Highway engineers must take into account future traffic flows, design of highway intersections/interchanges, geometric alignment and design, highway pavement materials and design, structural design of pavement thickness, and pavement maintenance.

You may want to consider Highway Engineering if you …

  • Have a strong interest in Traffic management to solve practical problems
  • Have a strong zeal in learning highway technical skills.
  • Desire to Plan, design, survey and construct all types of roads, bridges, and other structures, which connect cities and towns in the country.
  • Want to apply the knowledge of Mathematics, Science and Engineering concepts in creating a climate where one can reduce the risk of environmental pollution, transportation costs and get good transportation services.
  • Want to offer engineering solutions to societal problems.

 

About the Department:

The department is designed to equip students with the advanced knowledge and skills necessary for professional practice. It promotes an ambiance of self development, innovativeness and inclination towards R&D among students by exposing them to the real environment through projects and case studies, which they will come across in their subsequent professional career through industrial visit / tours / In plant training, Surveys, Technical symposiums and Conferences etc.

Civil engineering program at NRITech expects its graduates/Post graduates to be:

  • Competent in the fundamentals of engineering.
  • Capable of analyzing, designing, and describing civil engineering systems and processes.
  • Aware of the social and economic implications of engineered projects.
  • Responsible, ethical, and committed to life-long learning.

After their graduation in Highway Engineering, students get the placement opportunity in private construction companies handling large projects such as housing complexes and townships, government departments, in the defense services, at ports and harbors, and with the border road organizations. They get employed in the companies like L& T, Meil, Modtek, Government Contracts, US based companies for designs etc.
