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, RD
    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
