Civil Engineering

Department of Civil Engineering

The department of Civil Engineering officially started it activities in 2010 and it is now offering its courses to something about Civil Engineering undergraduate and Civil Engineering postgraduate students.

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings, and railways.

Degree Programs

●  BSc - Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering offers a 4-year Bachelor of Science (Eng) in Civil Engineering.  

Students learn about the various civil engineering areas during lectures and also have practical sessions in labs. These involve the investigation of the properties of various construction materials, soil behavior and foundation design, behavior of structural members under different loads, water quality and waste treatment.

During vacations students are expected to do practical training involving both site work and design office experience. The course also includes a survey camp covering basic survey operations and the preparation of a site plan.​

Bachelor’s students in Civil Engineering need to pass 142 credits during the four-year program.  Here is the categorization of the credits:
