Undergraduate Program

The mission of the Civil Engineering Undergraduate Program is to educate the students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of science and engineering so that they can develop solutions to Civil Engineering problems and enhance their computing, communication, and research skills. The Program aims to train the students to have theoretical background in basic sciences and engineering and to be equipped with necessary technical skills; promote students' self-discipline and self-assurance and the ability to learn on their own; encourage team work, collaboration and development of interpersonal skills; produce graduates who are observant, inquisitive and open to new technologies for developing better solutions; produce graduates for the engineering and business communities with integrity, determination, judgment, motivation, ability and education to assume a leadership role to meet the demanding challenges of the society.

The first two years of the undergraduate program is dedicated to the study of basic sciences and mathematics which provide the student with engineering fundamentals. The study of mechanics and materials begins in the second year. The third and fourth years involve the study and application of the principles of geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, hydraulics engineering, environmental engineering , transportation engineering, and the general systems approach to engineering problems. The students are also exposed to an introduction to construction management and economics which are essential to every practicing engineer.

The requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering include the completion of minimum of 144 credit hours of formal course work and 80 days of approved practical training (20 days on campus and 60 days in industry of which 20 days are office and 40 days are on site training).

Graduates of the department qualify for a responsible position in the civil engineering industry in analysis, design and construction management. Prospective employers include, but are not limited to, construction contractors, consulting firms, industrial firms and various government agencies.
