Prof. Darshan Gaidhankar


I am Associate Professor in Civil Engineering at Maharashtra Institite of Technology, Pune. I have completed my B. E. Civil Engineering from Walchand Institute of Technology, Solapur in the year 1999 and M. E. Civil-Structures from Government College of Engineering, Karad in the year 2004. I am working in MIT since 2002 and taught various subjects like Applied Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Structural Analysis, Theory of Structures, Analysis and Design of Bridges, Plastic Analysis of Structures, Composite Structures, Precast Concrete Structures and Ferrocement Technology. My specific areas of interest is Structural Engineering. I am pursuing Ph.D. in Civil Engineering in the area of ferrocement technology at SCOE Research Centre, Pune under the guidance of Dr. Mrudula S. Kulkarni. I am PG Coordinator for Civil-Structures and Time-Table Coordinator of the department since last several years.
