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. It is a challenging and dynamic profession that serves society to improve the quality of life, the health of the social system, the continuity of the economy, and business activities. 

Civil engineering is the professional practice of designing and developing infrastructure projects.  The great thing about civil engineering in the real world is that it’s an industry that perpetually adapts to the demands and desires of society. In recent years, civil engineering has adapted to consider many contemporary environmental concerns, helping to address issues of pollution and scarce water supplies, while considering the potential of sustainable energy within the industry.

Department of Civil Engineering aims to become a unique and 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 careers.
