Q6. How does UG specialization in “Smart Cities” benefit the students.

Smart buildings, zero energy buildings, smart water systems, and smart electricity grids, waste management protocols, will all be part of the future connected cities, in addition to mobility solutions. As a result, engineering education must broaden to encompass infrastructure, environmental knowledge, technology, sensors, and data science. The Manav Rachna Smart Cities focus provides one with just that, guiding one through a customized curriculum, hands on training and interactive industrial experiences outside of the classroom.

 

Q7. What is the future potential for UG specialization in “Green Technology and Sustainability Engineering”?

Inclusion of the green building norms has to be integrated with contemporary approaches and Environmental protection has to be at the forefront of all infrastructure design and operation.Reuse and recycling of waste, water reuse and recycling and many other facets of Civil engineering require integrated planning and design in a transition from contemporary practices to state-of-art green and clean constructions. A meticulous planning, creativity, adaptability and problem-solving skills helps in achieving these objectives. B.Tech (Hons.) Civil Engineering with specialization in Green Technology & Sustainability Engg. offered by the department from 2021 will be catering to above aspects.
