M.Tech in Geotechnical Engineering- Rajadhani Institute of Engineering and Technology (RIET)
engineering is a branch of civil engineering which is concerned with behaviour
of earth materials. An individual who has completed the Masters’ programme in
geotechnical engineering is open to a large number of job opportunities. RIET
(Rajadhani Institute of Engineering and Technology) is the best college in
Kerala that provides world-class education in this stream of study. The term
geotechnics is currently used to describe both the theoretical and practical
application of the discipline. Today geotechnical engineering has evolved and
geosynthetics has helped to solve many conventional problems that are encountered
by the engineers in this field. Geosynthetic products have a wide range of
applications and are currently used in many civil and geotechnical engineering
applications including roads, embankments, retaining structures, canals,
landfills, bank protection and coastal engineering.
full time, two year course is divided in to four semesters. For admissions, candidates should have undergone the B.Tech/B.E
course in an institution approved by AICTE and candidates should have a minimum
of 60% aggregate marks in the engineering examination in the relevant subject.
For SC/ST candidates a pass in the engineering degree course is sufficient. For
SEBC Students a minimum of 54% aggregate marks in the engineering degree
examination is mandatory. Geotechnical Engineer plan, analyse and design the
construction of foundations by assessing the properties of the earth materials.
They also study the risk posed to a structure from natural hazards such as
landslides, earthquakes etc. Some of the job opportunities after the successful
completion of this course includes the following
Geotechnical Engineers in consultancy and construction firms
start one’s own subsoil investigation company
Technical officer in soil testing laboratories.
