M.Tech. (Hydraulics) Master of Technology in Hydraulics
M.Tech. Hydraulics or Master of Technology in Hydraulics is a two year post graduate Civil Engineering course. Hydraulic engineering is the application of fluid mechanics principles to problems dealing with the collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement, and use of water. It is a highly competitive academic program. Course helps to develop scientific and technological knowledge, to prepare students for engineering activities (design, running and maintenance) of structures and grids used for the collection, the treatment, the storage and the distribution of water. This program aims at training specialists in both the public and private sectors capable of addressing today's and future issues and needs in hydraulic and civil engineering, hydraulic works and infrastructures, hydrology, and water resources management. The program emphasizes the following focus areas: Experimental and numerical methods, constitutive modeling, physical modeling, numerical modeling and structural engineering, water treatment and resource. It contains a review of the fundamental equations of Fluid Mechanics, an expansion of the methods of momentum analysis known from Thermo fluids, and a detailed discussion of the powerful technique of Dimensional Analysis, which allows the systematic discovery of parameter sets that govern the characteristic features of a flow.
B.E./ B.Tech. or equivalent degree with minimum 50% marks or equivalent CGPA.

Those who want to have deep knowledge of hydraulics along with mechanical such as introduction to maintenance tools, lifting tackles, measuring tools, torque wrench, fasteners, gaskets, sealants, oil seals & oaring, bearings, couplings, ‘V’ belts, gears, pulleys, brakes, clutches, filters and lubricants are good suit for it.
Those who want to go for further higher research degrees also are suitable for the course.
They should have been courageous, good communicator, team work spirit and other management skills.
How is M.Tech. HydraulicsCourse Beneficial?
It is beneficial to plan and manage the flow and storage of water.
It enables the applicants to find brainstorming solutions to address future water demands for cities or planning river and costal flood control projects.
Candidates can find employment opportunities in various industries, including manufacturing and distribution, water conservation, engineering design or engineering consulting.
The course is suitable to design and functionality of bridges, dams, levees and canals. Keep reading to learn more about this engineering discipline.
