Dr. K. S. Sreekeshava


Dr. Sreekeshava K.S graduated in Civil Engineering and completed his post- graduation in Structural Engineering from Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Civil Engineering and Sciences from BMS College of Engineering affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi. He has about 10 years of teaching experience and works as an Associate Professor and Head of the Department at Jyothy Institute of Technology. His works on Earthquake Engineering, Concrete Technology, soil-Structure Interaction, Application of GIS in Water Resources Engineering and Masonry Structures are published in various international journals. He has published more than 40 publications which includes springer and Taylor Francis book chapters. He has written more than 10 book chapters and presented technical papers in national/international conferences. In his short duration of teaching experience, he has authored two books including “Elements of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics” and “Mechanics of materials”. Dr. Sreekeshava K.S was the organizing chair of G20 C20 International Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches in Civil Engineering for Sustainable Development (IACESD-2023) and has edited six publications of the select proceedings under Springer, Singapore publications and one under CRC Press Taylor & Francis publication. He has guided multiple projects sponsored by Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology (KSCST), Bangalore from 2015 to 2024. He has the honours’ of life member of ISTE, ICI, INSC, NICEE, IAENG, ISET and IGS. He has successfully completed the research funding grant (worth 2 lakhs) under competitive research funding scheme initiated under scheme of TEQIP by Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi. He has successfully coordinated funded AICTE Teaching And Learning (ATAL) sponsored Faculty Development Programmes (worth 3.5 lakhs) & AICTE-ISTE faculty refresher Programme (worth more than one lakh) under the banner of department of Civil Engineering. He is also working as Student project proposal (SPP) coordinator and VTU funding coordinator for all departments. He has contributed as technical paper reviewer for several international journals which includes Journal of King Saud University-Science-Elsevier, IJSAE&M-Springer, Walailak Journal of Science & Technology- indexed by Scopus and Materials today Proceedings -Elsevier. The department of Civil Engineering at Jyothy Institute of Technology has bagged the ICI Ultratech Student Chapter Award under his leadership. He is currently supervising three Ph.D. research scholars. He is also involved in several civil engineering consultancy services which include planning, designing of structures, proof checking and third party inspection.
