1 Admissions to PhD Programme of Department of Civil Engineering (on continuous basis) The Department Established in 1961, the Department of Civil Engineering at IIT Kanpur aims at producing high-quality technical human resources to meet the needs of the nation― industries, R&D organizations and educational institutes. The Department is active in conceptual teaching, research in frontier areas, national-level consulting, and strong outreach activities. The PhD Programme The Department offers Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in the following specializations: Environmental Engineering Geoinformatics Geotechnical Engineering Hydraulics & Water Resources Engineering Structural Engineering Transportation Engineering The emphasis of the PhD programme is on learning fundamental principles in the subject area, developing deep understanding of a facet of the chosen specialization, honing creative & independent thinking, and on adapting & solving problems of inter-disciplinary nature. For details of admission procedures, eligibility requirements, financial assistance and course requirements, please visit: http://www.iitk.ac.in/ce/CIVIL/pgadmission.htmhttp://www.iitk.ac.in/ce/CIVIL/pgadmission.htm. The completed application forms can be submitted anytime during the year.
