Structural Engineering is a sub-discipline of civil engineering that involves the design of the built environment around us. In layman’s terms, these are the people that help design the components of a structure that enable it to withstand the various forces it is subject to. It is one of the most sought-after master’s programs chosen by undergraduate civil engineers. Architect undergraduates too can apply for such a program to establish a repertoire coherent in both: architecture and civil engineering. A master’s structural degree spans for two years generally if one opts for a research-based program. Otherwise, a non-thesis degree or course-work based curriculum sometimes referred to as M.Eng, has a study duration of one year. Nowadays, many universities have replaced the traditional structural engineering program with Earthquake Engineering.  With the added emphasis on the design of earthquake resilient structures, this program should be considered as something different from the coreREAD MORE
In India, in the past decade, the costs of pursuing an MBA program have risen exponentially with foreign partnerships like Kelloggs, ISB (Hyderabad) and the ubiquitous IIMs ruling the roost. Not surprisingly, studies show that the cost and Return on Investment (ROI) for an Indian MBA are not comparative to that of other Asian countries. In this perspective, Singapore tops the list for having three of its universities in the top five QS Global 200 MBA Rankings, leading with INSEAD–Singapore. Even the much-lauded S P Jain School of Business has its campus in Singapore, a strategic move by far. Reputed world-class institutions like the INSEAD France/Singapore, Nanyang Business School and the School of Business at the National University of Singapore are world-class institutions and rate among the Top 20 business schools, worldwide. In fact, in the Global MBA Ranking 2016/2017 published by the Financial Times (FT), INSEAD France/Singapore even dethronedREAD MORE
