B.Tech. in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering (upto 2014 Batch)
Course Corruculum:
In India, population explodes before even a plan is conceived. Population explosion coupled with urbanization, industrialization and economic growth have resulted in overstressing and deterioration of nation’s public infrastructures including building, roads, bridges, water and power distribution systems, storm and sanitary sewers, waste management, etc. The problem is exacerbating in urban areas due to mushrooming of unplanned infrastructure development. Deterioration of public infrastructure ultimately impacts consumers as well as business due to increase in costs. Moreover, there should be proper interlink between technological demand and societal needs while attempting challenges in infrastructure sector. Keeping in mind the infrastructure requirements for improved quality of life in a growing society as well as for industry and economic development, the need of the hour is to amalgamate traditional Civil Engineering with Infrastructure Engineering and Management with interdisciplinary approach. The multidimensional approach is perceived to close the sociotechnoeconomical loop by assessing the infrastructure needs accurately, proper decisionmaking in allocating resources, relating technological supply to socioeconomic needs and most importantly, keeping a balance between economic development and environmental impact.
In order to satisfy the current societal needs and growing industry demands, the B.Tech in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering program under the aegis of Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Patna intends to be the forefront of imparting engineering education by amalgamating traditional Civil Engineering with modern Infrastructure Engineering. The program aims to emphasize application oriented and projectbased learning. A strategic approach and motives behind the development of such a curriculum are outlined as follows:
Vision: In order to steer the growth of modern India in a planned manner, the curriculum of Civil and Infrastructure Engineering intends to be recognized for inspiring and developing future leaders who solve society’s infrastructure challenges.
Mission: To develop a brigade of young graduates capable of planning, developing, maintaining and managing public infrastructures for transformation of society through the provision of world class teaching, research and training engagements in interdisciplinary learning environment.
Objectives: To develop an undergraduate curriculum in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering that will emphasize on following aspects: (i) Imparting education with an integrated view of infrastructure based on modern societal needs with traditional wisdom, (ii) Interaction between various disciplines to cope up with growing real world challenges pertaining to infrastructure, and (iii) Inculcating young minds to learn various tools/techniques and develop capabilities in problem solving, engineering analysis, sustainability, teamwork, leadership and communications.
Goals: The goals are to:
(i) Adopt an integrated view on infrastructure, (ii) Understand the need to plan, develop, maintain and manage public infrastructure at a high level, (iii) Recognize the necessity of life cycle considerations in achieving the best operation of public infrastructures, (iv) Enhance the performance of civil infrastructure systems through product innovation and process integration, (v) Plan and execute the development of infrastructure projects, (vi) Evaluate critically the infrastructure policies and projects, and (vii) Lead and communicate effectively to team members and clients.
The features of the curriculum are as follows:
(i) Year one introduces key graduate capabilities in extending sciencebased basic concepts and knowledge to engineering applications for problem solving, (ii) Year two concentrates on the basic theoretical ideas around Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, (iii) Year three covers the hardcore areas in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering including structure, geotechnical, transport, water resources and environment. (iv) Year four revolves around the application oriented and projectbased learning in hardcore areas covered in Year three. Additionally, the development of expertise in various specializations is also possible through the introduction of widelydiverse departmental elective courses in Year four.

CE 544 Site Remediation
CE 544 
SITE REMEDIATION 
3006 
Prerequisites: Nil 
The course site remediation will focus on important established and emerging site remediation technologies. The orientation of the course can be divided in three phases, in phase one conceptualization of different process such as multiplephase equilibrium, phasepartitioning, interphase mass transfer and contaminant transport in porous media will be covered. In second phase type, nature and source of contamination as well as site characterization including environmental geochemistry and geophysics will be taught. Finally the available and emerging techniques for site remediation and evaluating the effectiveness of specific techniques for remediation of suitable sites will be discussed.
