Construction Technology and Management

Overview

    Construction Technology and Management refers to the discipline of overall planning, coordination and control of projects from beginning to completion with the course being a unification of civil engineering and construction management .The construction industry is composed of five sectors: residential, commercial, heavy civil, industrial, and environmental. Addressing the needs of the ever-growing construction industry that has generated a huge demand for enterprising people who can integrate construction science, engineering and business, Acharya Institute of Technology has introduced the Construction Technology and Management Program. The department of Construction Technology and Management at Acharya commenced its journey in the year 2011 under Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi that is approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

CTM Engineering College Bangalore

    The department of Construction Technology and Management division functions as a center of teaching, learning, and research in Concrete Technology and Construction Management. The dynamic combination of faculty members with expertise in Geotechnical engineering, Construction technology & management, and Structural engineering brings in an interdisciplinary research culture within our department. The department has a mandate to provide a platform for advanced research and training on the subject and for dissemination of knowledge through print and audiovisual media, conferences and seminars. Unique and different in many aspects, the Department of Construction Technology and Management has its curriculum outlined to address the present day requirements of the construction industry.

   Designed to give students an understanding of the overall building of construction industry, the Construction Technology and Management program prepares graduates with knowledge and skills necessary to enter the administrative and middle management levels of the construction industry. The purpose of the programs is to facilitate the students’ continued professional and scholarly development.The programs are designed to extend the students’ knowledge and emphasize a particular area of concentration. Having created repute as one of the top institutes in the entire state of Karnataka, the Construction Technology and Management Department has striven to achieve excellence in academics, as well as setting up a benchmark for the construction industry. The Construction Technology and Management Department is arguably the best in its areas of expertise.
