Faculty of Engineering & Architecture

Department of Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering has been actively contributing to transforming academia and developing educational infrastructure since 2008. The department is committed to produce highly competent professionals of high ethical values, enabling them for executive positions in Civil Engineering., and to peruse higher studies in the field of Civil Engineering.

The department offers a viable four-year degree program at the undergraduate level, Bachelor of Science (Civil), based on a comprehensive curriculum. The curriculum is constantly reviewed and updated if required according to the present and future requirements in the fields of civil engineering. In 2015, Department started its Postgraduate program, Master of Science (Civil), leading to Masters in Civil Engineering through advance courses and research. Our students are capable of availing all opportunities and serving society by fulfilling the wide range of growing demands within the construction industry and academia.

The Department of Civil Engineering has adopted Outcome Based Education (OBE) and Outcome-Based Assessment (OBA) at the undergraduate level for its BS (Civil) as recommended by Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) of Pakistan Engineering Council.
