ABOUT: CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT
Department of Civil Engineering is actively engaged in disseminating
civil engineering education for the last thirty seven years. The
Department has produced several eminent engineers who have made
significant contributions in the planning and execution of Civil
Engineering projects in Pakistan as well as abroad. The Department
of Civil Engineering has approved staff strength of 52, nearly 50% of whom contribute to
postgraduate teaching and are involved in PhD research work. Approximately 641 undergraduate and
238 postgraduate (MSc Engg.) students are registered in the department.
Civil engineers cater
to the national needs for buildings, highways, dams, bridges, irrigation
network and water supply systems, and are the world’s largest
users of building materials.
