Civil Engineers are increasingly focusing on the sustainable construction of buildings, plants, factories, and towns/cities. Planning and execution of such intensive projects involves accounting for several variables such as weather, fatalities, environmental impact, and materials composition that could drastically hinder the work being done. Utilizing accurate predictive models and applying AI to past data and projects helps reduce delays and minimizes risk in carrying out such a civil engineering project.
Students enrolled in this collaborative graduate program at INSOFE and Case Western Reserve University will be taught to merge civil engineering knowledge with Artificial Intelligence and build a career where they are experts in two niche fields. The 30 credit master’s requirements are split equally between both institutes and will require
students to complete all INSOFE classes in India prior to travelling to Case Western Reserve University (USA).
The Civil Engineering department at Case School of Engineering offers graduate programs in areas of structural, geotechnical, environmental engineering, and engineering mechanics for students to specialize in while the training at INSOFE will help students become experts at applying machine learning and data science principles to execute more efficient civil engineering projects.
Students will be eligible to receive 3 Years OPT upon successfully graduating from the dual specialization master’s degree.
