Mission of the Civil Engineering Program
The mission of the Department of Civil Engineering is to provide a balanced education to the students, strong in scientific, engineering, humanistic, and social basis, so that they may attain a leadership role in their profession and "use their knowledge and skills for the enhancement of human welfare and environment"
Throughout the program, specialized skills in areas including the building design and construction are steadily introduced, providing you with the ability to understand and form the link between concept, design and physical construction. The course enables you to negotiate and manage the design process, whilst understanding how to implement technical knowledge in developing practical and creative solutions, which meet existing working practices and legislation.
On successful completion of the course, you will:
•Become fully conversant with the main aspects of the discipline, namely Civil Technology, Material testing and Professional Practice.
•Experience the development of design schemes making use of a range of presentation media including the use of computer based design and visualization tools.
•Have an understanding of the use of materials and construction methods.
The construction industry is cyclical, but about 80 percent of Civil Engineers are always employed. In recent years, employment conditions have been improved for civil engineers in Pakistan.
