Since the founding of AIT, its civil engineering fields have promoted modern methodologies, emerging technologies, and innovative materials for the design and construction of safe and economical infrastructure in the region.
OUR ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
The Construction, Engineering and Infrastructure Management (CEIM) field of study prepares students to become effective managers and decision-makers familiar with the modern techniques of construction management, engineering management and infrastructure management. It trains professionals to play a leading role in the international construction industry. It molds students to become active leaders in the infrastructure development and management.
The field of study of Geotechnical and Earth Resources Engineering (GTE) offers two major areas of specializations, Geotechnical Engineering (GE) and Geosystem Exploration & Petroleum Geoengineering (GEPG).
STE offers two areas of specialization, (a) Structural Analysis, Mechanics, and Computation, and (b) Structural Design and Materials.
The Transportation Engineering field exposes students to the process of alleviating transportation problems. The coursework and research in the area provide advanced knowledge in transportation planning and economics, traffic engineering, and the design of highways/pavements and other transportation facilities. Transportation Engineering students acquire advanced skills concerning the planning, design, operations, maintenance, rehabilitation, performance, and evaluation of transportation systems, including their economic and public policy aspects.
The Water Engineering and Management (WEM) field imparts education and training toward an understanding of the complexity of water use and water resources management problems. It offers a balanced curriculum, which covers both the engineering and management aspects of water resource development. Students are trained to acquire knowledge and hands-on practice in tools and techniques to come up with viable and sustainable solutions within the framework of integrated water resources management at the river basin scale.
