CE educational philosophy is ‘student-centered’. Hence, all teaching and learning activities aim to transfer specific and in-depth knowledge to students, to encourage them discover the impact of the acquired knowledge in a more general setting in engineering practice and motivate them self-awareness and self-development of their knowledge. 

Academic Program

The Department offers a four-year undergraduate (BEng) programme which is designed according to the ABET’s (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) guidelines and based on those from well-known foreign universities to underpin most aspects of Civil Engineering.


The objectives of our undergraduate programme are to 

1. Be successful in tackling open-ended civil engineering problems in a quantitative and systematic approach

2. Be motivated to continuously expand their knowledge, be creative and innovative in their contributions to the field of civil engineering

3. Possess the ability to design and manage civil engineering projects in an ethical and professional manner

Program learning outcomes

  1. Understanding of the physical world and use knowledge of mathematics to represent it.
  2. Understanding of fundamentals of engineering field including mechanics of solids and structures, soil mechanics, fluid mechanics and computational techniques, measuring, surveying, analyse data for design, build and appraisal construction.
  3. Ability to analyze and prepare investment projects and understanding the economic, environmental and social impact of engineering solutions.
  4. Awareness of professional and ethical responsibilities of a civil engineer.
  5. Ability to function as a member of a multidisciplinary team as well as having good knowledge of management and organization.
  6. Recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning in order to work efficiently in situations in which new technologies appear regularly.
  7. Ability to communicate efficiently including oral, written and others.
  8. Broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and social context.
  9. Understanding of contemporary issues of national, regional and world with broad vision.
  10. Ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  11. Ability to use English in both technical and day-life situations.
