HOD 's Desk


Dr. Santosh Kumar Singh is Professor and Head, Civil Engineering having his Ph.D. –Structure from IIT Kharagpur awarded in 2006. His major area of academic focus is to trained the civil engineering students on latest trend and practices for design of tall and slender buildings, factories, bridges and water work structure based on Indian and International codes of design practices for concrete and steel structure using latest software’s like STADD, ETAB, SAFE, RAM CONCEPT, REVIT, AUTOCAD, TEKLA etc. He is also training the students for project management skills required to deliver the large and complex nature of Civil Engineering Projects. He has 20+ years of excellent experience in design and detailing of steel structures/RCC structures. His steel experience includes the design of industrial buildings, pre-engineered buildings, elevated large span connecting bridges in steel / concrete, road under passes with heavy traffic loads, elevated/ underground storage tanks in RCC / Concrete, storage structures and hoppers. He has designed many RCC structures which includes hi-rise buildings, silos, machine foundations etc. His expertise includes analysis and design of steel structures/ RCC structures using Indian (IS) British (BS) and American codes. He has in-depth understanding of technical procedures for strength assessments of old structures and establish the procedure for retrofitting. His major area of expertise is design of earthquake resistant structures specially tall / slender structure. He was also involved in preparation of Feasibility Reports, Tender Specifications and drawings, technical evaluation of offers, design and detailing of steel structures including approval of fabrication drawings and designer’s supervision at site. Dr. Santosh have successfully delivered the large and complex nature of steel and concrete building structures designed as per IS/ BS / American codes and have successfully implemented the appropriate structural system for architectural visions by Architects of National and International repute. His major area of research interest is Dynamics and Control of Tall and Slender Structures under Earthquake Excitation, Smart and Intelligence Systems for Vibration Control, Heath Monitoring and retrofitting of structures Membership of Professional Bodies Fellow of Indian Association of Structural Engineers New Delhi Member and Chartered Engineer – Institution of Engineers (India) Current Professional Registrations Grade -1 Structural Engineer- Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation Grade -1 Structural Engineer- Town and Country Planning Uttrakhand Empaneled Structural Engineer EPCO – Madhya Pradesh Publications and Design Consultancy Reports Journals- 01 National / International Conferences – 06 Detail Design Project Reports – 50 +


Owing to tremendous growth in the infrastructure sector in India and abroad, the demand of Civil Engineers has been on rise. The delivery of large and complex nature of projects are the key change for today civil engineers. The knowledge and application of IT and software in design and project management are becoming the key tools to plan and execute the large and complex nature of projects. Due to globalization of word, the opportunities are extending from national to international. Hence educational demand of Civil Engineers has focus towards understanding, design and construction practices being adapted internationally to improve the quality of projects. To fulfill the growing demand and to cater to the engineering needs globally, the institute offers B.Tech degree course in Civil Engineering which is four year engineering degree program of Abdul Kalam Technical University. The major focus of department is on education for application of IT and latest software’s in design and execution of small to large and complex nature of civil engineering projects along with the gain from practical experience from the field studies to Building, Industries (real states), Bridges, Highways, Flyovers, Dams and Irrigation structure. Which are the top priorities of academic program.
