We build your dream

The Islamabad Campus is envisioned to have the faculty of Engineering and Technology, Pharmacy, Management Sciences and IT and Computer Sciences.

Civil Engineering

Civil engineering deals with development in terms of conceiving, planning, designing, executing, managing, maintaining and rehabilitating infrastructure and building facilities. This is a diversified discipline which deals with all types of human endeavors related to the growth of civilization in the shape of buildings, transportation systems, industry, power systems, water resources, environment and geo sciences. Civil Engineers play a vital role to execute the visualization and routinely face multi-faceted, dynamic challenges on projects in various roles as client, consultant, contractor and related fields.

The Department of civil engineering is providing excellence to its students by improving competencies in novel techniques and methods to fulfill the needs of a sustainable built environment. This diverse platform has been established to provide quality engineering education which will allow its students to acquire the most advanced knowledge. Civil Engineering is a challenging profession which requires knowledge of mathematics, applied sciences and computation skills to solve civil engineering problems. The curriculum is designed to nurture students to latent capabilities. Advanced engineering theoretical constructs and skills are instilled in students by utilizing state of the art lab equipment to learn the engineering profession and utilize it in the development of the society.

Why this Degree

The civil engineer graduate can look for jobs in road projects, building work, consultancy firms, quality testing laboratories or housing societies.  Civil Engineers have broad prospects to find job in Government departments, private and public sector industries, research and teaching institutions etc. Civil engineers will always be needed to maintain and repair existing facilities and structures and to construct new ones in fields of Coastal, Environmental, Structural, Transport, Urban and Water resources engineering
Civil engineers are employed in all the major construction projects carried out by the municipalities, city governments, provincial or central government, the private construction companies, military, engineering services and project management.  Civil engineering graduates can also go in for research and take up teaching or they can open their own independent firms for consultancy or construction services.
