Civil engineering

Department of Civil engineering

Civil engineering is a broad field of engineering that deals with the planning, construction, and maintenance of fixed structures, or public works, as they are related to earth, water, or civilization and their processes. Most civil engineering today deals with power plants, bridges, roads, railways, structures, water supply, irrigation, the natural environment, sewer, flood control, transportation and traffic. In essence, civil engineering may be regarded as the profession that makes the world a most comfortable place to live.


Vision Statement

The department vision is to continue to achieve national and international recognition through innovation in civil and environmental engineering education and research, and through the impact of our research and alumni in three focus areas: advanced infrastructure systems; environmental engineering, sustainability and mechanics, materials and computing. Our vision includes our department being a collegial, collaborative and welcoming environment in which to learn and work.


Mission Statement
