Program Outcomes

Mankind has been evolving for 6 million years. Documented history says that steel was used in construction starting in the 18th century. A century later, one of the seven wonders of the world “Eiffel Tower” was built using wrought iron weighing 7,300 tons. To point out another incident that influenced construction using steel, would be the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 that destroyed thousands of timber buildings. Due to this, they made building regulations on using non-combustible construction materials. Hence they found the mixture of cast and wrought iron paired with brickwork as an alternate to prevent another incident. After all the effort and creativity, man put up structures like Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, Willis Tower (Sears Tower), Burj Khalifa in 2009, Gateway Arch in St. Louis and The Statue of Unity in 2018.

Steel is characterized by its high strength, light weight, rigidity. They are mainly used for structures subjected to dynamic loads such as shell structures, tall towers, bridges and high-rise construction. Its ability to withstand tension and compression is its advantage over concrete. But it's the 21st century now, stakes have changed. Currently metallurgists are on the verge of developing eco-friendly steel production methods. With the increase in population and cities expanding, need will only continue to escalate.

Here is a Masters course that will help you to bridge the gap between practical and theoretical practices in industry. Taking this masters course will help you be able to comprehend the behavior of various steel structures to industrial practice.  This course contains subjects such as :

List of courses in this program

1Modelling and Analysis of Industrial Structures using STAAD.Pro

The initial industrial building was rectangular in plan and supported by stone walls and wooden roofs. As construction enterprises evolved and new building materials came into view, framed structures emerged.

This course will teach you:

  • The fundamentals on industrial buildings
  • Introduction of it in STAAD pro
  • PEB and pipe rack structures
  • The basics of foundations 
  • Typical foundation design in STAAD pro 

All of this provides an understanding of basic loading patterns during service when exposed in realistic building context.

In the end you, will be a top choice to be considered by industries in their design engineer role even though no prior industrial experience is obtained

2Design and Analysis of Piperack structure

Steel pipe racks are structures that support pipes, power cables and instrument cable trays in power plants. They have a series of transverse bends running along the length of the pipe system, spaced uniformly at 20 ft.

This course will help you with:

  • Detailed study of pipe rack design criteria
  • Load applications in staad-pro
  • Design of pedestal and foundation
  • Design of base plate and preparation of report

 

3Design of Gantry with Sheds

Steel pipe racks are structures that support pipes, power cables and instrument cable trays in power plants. They have a series of transverse bends running along the length of the pipe system, spaced uniformly at 20 ft.

This course will help you with:

  • Detailed study of pipe rack design criteria
  • Load applications in staad-pro
  • Design of pedestal and foundation

A gantry is an overhead bridge structure supporting equipment. It is particularly seen at most container terminals. 

This course will cover:

  • Design of cranes with gantry using staad pro 
  • Design of gantry using Staad pro

As most of the plants have shelters with or without gantry, engineers with this design skills are required in industry.

4Structural steel connection design

Use of iron in construction is more modern than you think, though it has been around for centuries.But to name a few, steel is today used in HVAC, electrical panels, foundation etc. This is because steel is now attaining notability for its flexibility and steel components reduce construction time. 

This course on Steel connections will help you with:

  • Conceptual understanding of connection detailing and its purpose
  • Detailed procedure for manual design
  • Concepts on bolted and welded connection theory
  • Design of Connections for Shear, Moment and Axial force

This course will certainly develop better understanding on steel member connections and force flow.  

This course will bridge the gap between academic knowledge and industry requirements, thus it saves substantial cost of an employer to train you in the subject. This will make you a preferred candidate.

5Structural steel connections using RAM Connections

In conventional analysis and design of steel and composite frames, joints are assumed to be pinned or fully rigid. But  real joints exhibit characteristics over an extensive scale between these two extremes. Therefore it is necessary to continue the design analysis of steel connections in software.

This course that we have here covers:

  • Software applications of steel connections design
  • Practical knowledge on how to use a commercial software for designing a steel connection. 

This course is focused on helping students cope with the vast gap between commercial consulting engineering services.

6Design of Composite Structures

Composites are multi-phase materials composed of two or more materials. Materials of different properties are combined together to achieve desired properties. The better characteristics of composites make it an essential component in structural engineering. 

In this course, you will be able to understand the functions and behaviour of different structural elements and where composite materials can be used. You will learn about modelling geometry, load application and combinations, analysis and design of structures using ETABS and analysis of composite floor deck systems using Comflor.

7Structural Optimization of steel structures by Pre-Engineering

Pre-engineered buildings (PEB) are steel buildings in which the framed members are fully fabricated in the factory. This method is dexterous due to its quality in pre designing and prefabrication and economy. This method has various advantages over the conventional steel building (CSB).

This course will teach you:

  • Design of Pre-Engineered steel buildings using MBMA codes
  • PEB design
  • AISC & MBMA codes

This will help in understanding the concepts of steel buildings and also AISC standards which can be useful to your path towards a foreign degree.

The skills developed will reduce the training investments of companies hiring you and your understanding of concepts can be clearly used for your advantage in the interviews.
