CST will launch two new programmes from academic year 2019-20, Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering Geology (EG) and Bachelor of Engineering in Instrumentation & Control Engineering (ICE).
BE in EG is a four year program that aims to provide knowledge and skills in engineering geology that is vital to investigation, project planning and execution of construction projects. Graduates will develop the ability to assess and make recommendations on the geological factors regarding location, design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineering works for project implementation. The programme covers subject matter on interpretation of land forms, geophysical processes, and site conditions required for various development works, besides other essential content.
Graduates of the EG can find employment as engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers in the government, corporate and private sectors and in hydropower projects that engage in different construction projects which demands application of engineering geology and geotechnical engineering for proper site investigation and detailed study of the project site.
Apart from these organisations, graduates can also find employment in the private sector, be self-employed as consultants or work for international organisations that require the services of an engineering geologist.
BE in ICE is also a four year program that aims to produce graduates who can carry out modern automation of industrial systems existing in all engineering disciplines as well as in non-engineering disciplines. It emphasises the analysis, design, synthesis and optimization of control systems in order to provide the best means of controlling their dynamic behaviour to produce favourable or specified outputs. Graduates will be equipped with the technical knowledge and skills in their subject of specialisation as well as develop other transferable competencies.
Graduates of ICE will have a sound knowledge base and skill sets to develop and expand professional careers in fields related to instrumentation technologies, process control and industrial processes automation. In addition, graduates will be equipped with the ability to adapt to technological advancements and will be ready to take up challenges in industrial research.
Graduates of ICE can find employment in industries that require expertise in designing, developing, installing, managing and maintaining equipment which is used to monitor and control engineering systems, machinery and processes.
