Being an experienced professional , I am of the view that engineering students shall have the very fundamentals of each & every subject they learn which brings value addition and help them being very confident. My teaching essentially follows this philosophy and students are exposed to practical problems as and when required to get a feel of the subject. I can teach the students online, provide them with the class notes, assignments and every kind of support they require to master the subject.
B.Tech in civil engineering from Regional Engineering College (presently NIT) calicut and M.Tech in geotechnical engineering from IIT Mumbai.
20 years of rich industrial experience in a reputed multinational company in the design of steel &, concrete structures including their foundations. Eight years of experience in academics teaching subjects various subjects as structural analysis,structural design,geotechnical engineering, prestressed concrete. I can also teach post graduate students in geotechnical engineering, earthquake engineering & structural dynamics. Students could also be supported for their projects and competitive exams.
