As Part of Centre for professional development, a two days hands on workshop on Computer aided Structural Analysis and Design (CASAD 2020) will be conducted by Department of Civil Engineering, School of Engineering, RK University, Rajkot, During 14th February - 15th february,2020.


We would like to introduce ourselves as a premier knowledge institute established in 2006 with the name of RK Group of Colleges, later turned into RK University a first state private University in Saurashtra and Kutch region in the year 2011 and being a pioneer into Technical, Pharmaceutical, Physiotherapy, Management, Agriculture, Ayurveda and Computer Science education. RK University is ranked 4th across the nation in Swachh Campus Ranking 2018 by MHRD, Government of India. The only state private University accredited by NAAC-UGC in western Gujarat region.

We believe that RKU is a place where “Change” happens. Our students are challenged and motivated to change their perspectives by our faculties. Our faculties constantly change their pedagogies and instructional approaches to match industry requirements and student needs. Our students go on to change the society with the knowledge they have acquired at RKU.


The Civil Engineering Department was established in the year 2009.

The department offer B.Tech program in Civil Engineering with a yearly intake of 120 students.

The department also offers two PG programs, M. Tech. in Structural Engineering and M.Tech. in Construction Technology under full time category.A group of qualified faculty and adequate experience is the highlight of the department. The department has qualified faculty members occupied with educating and research having perfection in different fields. The faculty members are youthful, dynamic and prepared to meet the scholastic needs yearning of understudies.


The computer aided analysis and design has changed the world for the structural engineers. Analysis and designing software are invaluable tool for any structural engineering firm. The computer aided design has optimized the structural analysis and design processes in ways engineers never could have imagined possible 30 years back. There is a need to Train future structural engineers to use computer software with emphasis on the applications of computer aided analysis and design in the construction industry. The intension of this workshop is to highlight the benefits and implications associated with the use of in structural engineering field through hands on practical sessions. This software has a wide range of acceptance as it meets the industry standards and allows easy sharing of data with other software tools. Since it is developed on open architecture, it is customizable.


The course has been planned to provide the necessary theoretical and practical background and exposure to the engineering students on computer aided analysis and design of various structures. The broad topics covered along with hands-on practice are:

  • Overview of Analysis and Design Software in structural Engineering
  • 2D and 3D modelling, analysis and design of RC frame building using STAAD Pro. software tool.
  • Modelling and analysis of widely used structures like Roof Truss and water tank.
  • Dynamic analysis of the structures under earthquake and wind loading.


Experts from Industries and prominent institutions of Gujarat.


The course is open to the Undergraduate and Post graduate students of Civil Engineering.
Limited seats are also open to the Industrialist and Academicians who are interested to learn the software.
