The NDT programme in Civil Engineering Technology is conducted by the Division of Civil Engineering Technology with the objective of producing qualified professionals for the Civil Engineering Industry. It consists of academic activities at the ITUM in the first and second years and Industrial Training in the third year. Approximately 80 students are in each of the first, second and third years of study.

The Civil Engineering industry consists mainly of construction & maintenance of Buildings, Bridges, Roads & Railways, Dams & Reservoirs, Water supply & waste disposal schemes, Major & minor irrigation schemes, Tunnels & Power houses, Runways & Airports and Harbours & coastal structures etc.

The study programme involves principles, theory, design & applications of the related areas. (Structures, Hydraulics, Soil mechanics, Water resources, Surveying, Management etc.) & a Survey Camp of two weeks duration which is conducted outside the ITUM.

The successful completion of the NDT (Civil Engineering) allows the diplomates to obtain the Advance Diploma of City & Guilds (London) through a Memorandum Of Understanding signed between the two institutions.

The following further educational avenues are also available for the Diplomates.

  • Open University Engineering Degree
  • Engineering Degrees from Foreign Universities
  • Engineering Institution Examinations

Further the diplomates with required experience can pursue higher education in the following areas as well.

  • Quantity Survey
  • Management
  • Business Administration (MBA)
  • Law
