With the initiative of Government of India on creation of infrastructural facilities a large sum of money is being invested in the construction sector. With huge shortage of housing in all  the economic sectors and the importance attached to the growth and development of the housing sector in the country it is expected that the country is going to see a new horizon in the housing industry in near future. The concepts of Make in India, Innovate in India, Smart Cities, Smart Villages, Clean and Renewable Energy and Affordable Housing is fast catching up in the country.

Recognising the importance of housing, one of the prime infrastructures required for the growth of the country, the CSIR – Central Building Research Institute, Roorkee (CBRI), one of the prime laboratories of CSIR is offering an integrated programme leading to Master of Technology (MTech) in “Building Engineering and Disaster Mitigation (BEDM)” and PhD in engineering and sciences. The integrated programme is so designed that a successful candidate will receive both MTech and PhD degree on completion of the programme while opportunity exists for the candidates who wish to quit the programme after two years of successful completion with an MTech degree in BEDM.

The theme of disaster mitigation fulfils adequately the requirement of mitigating the risk of earthquake, landslide and fire which often destroy the infrastructures and creates havoc. The country has seen many such disasters in the past. The multidisciplinary expertise required to meet the requirements are available in the institute and the course is designed to impart practical training to the students on these themes.  Thus the course is a perfect blend of both theory and practice. Drawing from the rich experience of scientists working in this laboratory, the course is designed to offer to the participants sound theoretical knowledge and practical site experience. Such a unique opportunity is not available anywhere in the country. Also the programme is unique by itself.

The total number of seats available for the integrated programme is 10 (Ten).
