A civil engineer works in the oldest branch of engineering and is typically engaged in design, construction, operation and maintenance of facilities and infrastructure beneficial to societies. There is a great demand for skilled engineers especially in the field of rapidly growing infrastructure sector. To meet the challenge, the department of Civil Engineering at UIU is offering a four-year Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree. With its emphasis on preparation for professional practice, UIU’s distinctive curriculum provides students with a broad exposure to five major areas within the discipline of civil engineering – structural engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering and water resources engineering. The department has to shoulder a major responsibility of producing the most gifted builders for tomorrow and the department is ready to undertake this task very seriously. The department aims to be a premier center of excellence in Civil Engineering nationally and globally. This Civil Engineering program will give students a well-rounded education in fundamental engineering principles, while developing their expertise in all the major area of Civil Engineering. The program also equips students with managerial and entrepreneurial skills, giving them an edge as modern engineers. Department is equipped with highly qualified, experienced faculties as well as with excellent laboratories namely, Strength of Material Lab, Fluid Mechanics Lab, Engineering Materials Lab, Surveying Lab, Transportation and Traffic Engineering Lab, Geo-Technical Engineering Lab, Environmental Engineering Lab, Computer Lab, Physics Lab and Chemistry Lab.
At UIU we provide a calm, well-designed educational space as well as aesthetically sound green environment to encourage better learning.
To be a globally recognized outstanding department committed to excellence in academics, research, knowledge creation and delivery to develop socially-responsible professionals.
Mission The mission of the undergraduate program in Civil Engineering at UIU is to produce competent graduates tutored with skill, attitudes and the quality of complex problem solvers, to prepare them for entry-level positions in Civil Engineering, as well as for higher studies in graduate school, life-long learning, and to develop their societal leadership.
