Civil Engineering program is based on three year Bachelor Degrees. The first year of the program is dedicated to the study of basic sciences and mathematics which provide the student with engineering fundamentals. The second and third year are mainly composed of basic engineering courses involving the study and application of the principles of geotechnical engineering (behavior of soils, design of foundations), structural engineering (analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures), hydraulics engineering (flow of water in pipes, water resources), 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. Summer practice at the end of the second and third year, and courses at the last year aim to provide a Civil Engineering perspective to students.
Curriculum of the program includes elective courses, which give an opportunity to students to improve their professional skills according to their interests. Some of them are nontechnical and free elective courses, the remaining are civil engineering electives. The requirements for a Diploma in Civil Engineering include the completion of minimum of 180 ECTS credits of formal course work and 60 days of approved practical training.
In the global industry, there is a strong demand for Civil Engineers particularly those who combine technical skills with good communication skills and team-work ability. 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.
