Department of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is one of the oldest professions which usually include a variety of engineering specialties like structural engineering, transportation systems, fluid mechanics, water resources, geo-systems, environmental engineering etc. This will depend on your interest and choice of module during your course of study. Your choice of degree modules and final-year projects can boost your chances of getting hired into a particular division, so give some thought to the specialism you'd like to work in. Closely aligned to the position, it does give you an advantage as it shows that you already have an interest in the area. Civil Engineers work in a broad spectrum of engineering situations and find employment opportunities in both public and private sectors such as construction firms, manufacturing companies, power companies, petroleum industry, mining concerns and with consulting engineering firms. Many opportunities for civil engineering employment exist

The Course

  • Impart state-of-the-art knowledge to students in the field of Civil Engineering who will play a vital role in national development
  • Provide critical learning for a broad function in various areas of Civil Engineering, including structural, environmental, geotechnical, water resources and transportation engineering and construction    management
  • Impress upon them the spirit of discipline and ethics of the engineering profession
  • Produce graduate civil engineers for fascinating careers in the national and international markets.

Learning Outcome

The Civil Engineering Program will provide the necessary technical skills in engineering design/analysis as well as mathematical and basic sciences consistent with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) accreditation standards and national technological needs.
A Civil Engineering graduate would be able to undertake planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of urban and rural infrastructure by applying his/her knowledge at all stages of Civil Engineering and inter- disciplinary projects.


Most civil and structural engineers work for either a consultancy or a contractor. Starting out at a consultancy, you might assist with designs or gather data under the supervision of a team leader. Working for a contractor, you would start out by managing a small section of the project or 'package' on site.
Airports, Bridges, Buildings, Highways, Offshore, Tunneling, Dams, Coastal and Marine, Energy and Power, Health, and Educational Infrastructures

Civil Engineering Lab

Once you become a civil engineer, materials will form the basis of what you do. From then on understanding material properties can help you make design decisions. The answer to all the questions about everything around may be found either in libraries or developed in a lab. Testing materials and writing lab reports familiarize you with materials’ properties. Lab tests generate reports discussing materials and procedures describing the details of a test performed. And reports are written not only for passing grades, but to learn and preserve the observations made during the tests.
