About the Department
Civil Engineering Department was launched under the Faculty of Engineering based on the premises that there is a strong need of manpower in the field so as to realize the development plan of the nation. It was established in 2010 G.C in line with other departments. Currently the program runs a curriculum offering a five year B.Sc. degree in civil engineering with a total of 1330 regular and 450 extension students.
This program is aimed at training manpower required for the realization of the country’s unreached civil engineering works. Wellqualified civil engineers with adequate knowledge in the area of structural, highway, geotechnical and water resources and who can be actively engaged in the planning, development and management of civil engineering projectswill be produced through this program.Specifically, the trainees will be equipped with the knowledge that enables them to execute the following tasks:
- Undertake project identification, pre-feasibility and feasibility study and detail design of civil engineering works.
- Prepare complete contract documents and terms of references for civil engineering projects
- Plan, manage, monitor and evaluate the operation and maintenance of civil engineering works.
- Remodeling and rehabilitation of existing civil engineering works.
The Civil Engineering Department in its short history has made its level best effort to respond to the nation’s needs by revising curricula, expanding undergraduate programs, and offering continuing education programs. The Departmentprovides training for regular undergraduate and continuing education programs leading to a B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering.
