About CE read more

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline.

Mission & Vision read more

Department of Civil Engineering aims to become a unique and a leading institution of higher learning, offering state of the art education, research and training in technology in the field of Civil Engineering. The broad objective of the department is to achieve international recognition for excellence in research and teaching, such that it is ranked as the top Civil Engineering department in the country and, thus, it becomes the top choice of graduate students for higher education and of prospective faculty for their career.

  • To become a critical thinker and problem solver based on a fundamental knowledge of humanities, social sciences, mathematics, science, engineering science and a broad range of civil engineering technical areas;
  • To produce technically qualified Civil Engineers to become leaders of Civil and Construction Industries who are committed to sustainable development of Civil and Construction site for the betterment of society and nation;
  • Consideration of global and societal concerns, ethics and sustainability when making engineering decisions;
  • Pursuit of life-long learning and professional development.
