Prof. Dr. Avadhoot Bhosale

Assistant Professor


Dr. Avadhoot Bhosale is an assistant professor in the school of civil engineering, MIT WPU Since Sept 2021. He holds a B.E in civil engineering (Shivaji University 2007), M.Tech in structural engineering (NIT Rourkela, 2012), and Ph. D. in structural engineering (NIT Rourkela 2018). His core research interests include Structural/Earthquake engineering, structural reliability, vertical irregularities, Masonry structure, and performance-based design and assessment methods.

He has publications in reputed ASCE, ACI engineering journals and currently working on the performance-based design of RC infilled framed buildings. One of his research work on AAC block masonry is referred in the new draft commentary on IS1893:2016 developed by IIT Gandhi Nagar with the help of world bank support.  Presently, he teaches CVE 1001A (Applied Mechanics), and CE324 B (Advanced Construction Materials) for the undergraduate program. He is the recipient of the Best Ph.D. Poster presentations from the civil engineering department at Research Scholar Week, 2017 held at NIT Rourkela, Orissa and acting as a mentor for Team CESA selected in final round of Smart India Hackathon, 2019 Hardware editions.
