Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Program Overview

The department of civil engineering at CUI Wah Campus offers a competitive four years degree program at the undergraduate level based on a comprehensive curriculum designed in accordance with the HEC and PEC guidelines and in line with international standards.

The civil engineering program provides the necessary technical skills in mathematics, basic sciences, engineering sciences, engineering design, humanities and social sciences consistent with accreditation needs of The Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) and national needs.

The program aims to provide critical learning for a broad foundation in structures, environmental engineering, geotechnical, materials, water resources, and transportation. Considerable emphasis is placed on group-based, open-ended design projects to provide students with the necessary skills for creative teamwork and to prepare them professionally for diverse employment opportunities. Preparation for professional practice and graduate studies is accomplished through careful selection of technical electives. The civil engineering program provides conducive and stimulating environment to both students and faculty.

 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Civil Engineering Department is to provide students with the highest level of technical preparation, leadership and lifelong learning skills for successful careers in civil engineering. The department offers quality education based on a nationally and internationally recognized curriculum supported by well-equipped laboratories and state-of-the-art educational tools.
