Civil Engineering


Civil engineers plan, design, develop, build, manage, rehabilitate and operate the physical elements of the human habitat. Almost every aspect of everyday life is impacted by projects conceived, designed and constructed by civil engineers. Civil Engineering, like all other fields, is comprised of many sub disciplines. Primary areas of concentration include transportation, geotechnical, environmental, structural engineering, and construction engineering and management. In past years, civil engineers focused on design and construction of new facilities, such as buildings, bridges and highways, water treatment and environmental facilities, foundations and tunnels. Today's civil engineers not only has to design new facilities but must also analyze the effects of deterioration on infrastructure elements, consider system interdependencies and evaluate life-cycle impacts while also considering environmental and economic sustainability within the context of society. Civil engineers must be equipped with in-depth knowledge of traditional, fundamental principles and new technologies in order to address the complex, interdisciplinary problems faced within society. The Department of Civil Engineering is a select group of students and faculty who are dedicated to work together to build a sustainable future through the development of our civil infrastructure and the betterment of our global environment. We have a faculty who are dedicated to excellence in undergraduate teaching and are at the forefront of engineering research.

Engineering programs are supported by state-of-the-art laboratories that are open to all engineering students. These laboratories are managed by qualified and dedicated faculties. The Department of Civil Engineering offers laboratory courses to cover the main topics in the fields of concrete and pavement design, environmental engineering, strength of materials, soil mechanics, hydraulics, field surveying and irrigation drawing. The lab equipment is continuously upgraded and updated to ensure that our students are exposed to the most recent and advanced systems.


The student will be able to determine the properties and behavior of materials under tension, bending, torsion and buckling. A Universal Testing Machine is available for tensile and hardening experiments.


While primarily used for graduate instruction and research, the purpose of this lab is to acquaint students with the details of water and wastewater analysis, and to provide hands-on experience in the operation and performance of traditional and innovative systems for water and wastewater treatment. Research activities in this lab have also relied heavily on undergraduate student involvement, ranging in scope from relatively routine analytical procedures, such as nitrogen and COD analysis.


The Civil engineering hydraulics laboratory is equipped with an open channel flow tank, a testing pipe system, a flow head-losses measurement instrument, several pumps and turbines systems.


The main objective of this lab is to learn the principles and procedures of testing concrete and highway materials. This laboratory has mixing facilities and bulk materials for concrete. Materials are stocked in the laboratory and used most frequently for the concrete beams.


The laboratory is equipped with tools for testing of soil properties to determine all relevant characteristics and to assess different types of soil. Direct Shear, Permeability apparatus and Unconfined Compression-enable the student to determine soil parameters along with pore water pressure and volume changes.


The Surveying Laboratory has a wide variety of modern surveying equipment, such as total stations, theodolites. The laboratory is an integral part of their surveying coursework to obtain any topographic information that can help in design projects, such as highway design and land development. Student use of the lab is preceded by appropriate safety training and instruction on the use and care for the equipment. The equipment is used in applications that give practical training and provide insight about the topics covered in lecture. Advanced topics include astronomical observations and precision surveys.
