Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management, Mangalore offers M.Tech program in CADS (Computer Aided Analysis and Design of Structures) with effect from 2012. This course is quite popular and different from the other conventional PG courses offered in Civil engineering branch. The course helps in developing the analysis and design algorithms for solving very complex linear and nonlinear, static and dynamic problems encountered in Civil, Mechanical, Automobile and Aerospace engineering. The course was first instituted by the Mysore University during 1991 with the efforts of a team of academicians including our present Professor & Director, Dr D L Prabhakar. During the last two decades, our Director has guided about 40 M.Tech (CADS) students who are all very well placed in most reputed multi national companies such as ANSYS, NASTRAN, HYPERMESH etc spread over the world and national laboratories such as  NAL, ADA, ISRO etc. The student who is undergoing this course can get employments in various Civil, Mechanical, Automobile and Aerospace industries.
Strengths of our Institute:

  • Well Experienced and dedicated Faculty
