This program consists of a four-year curriculum to be complete by our students. The program provides the students with a wide range of topics in civil engineering including structural, transportation, and wastewater treatment engineering. The students will also receive basic education, including theory and practice of designing and constructing buildings such as civil and industrial structures, bridges, and geo-technical engineering objects.

The Bologna process system of study will be followed in the department.

- Total overall number of Credits/Semester = 30 ECTS

- Each academic year consists of ( 30 ) studying weeks (2 Semesters)


The aim of the civil engineering department is to provide the students with high-quality education and programs of study by qualified teaching staff members. The academic teaching process in the department is accompanied by practical practices in different laboratories and computer halls. Graduates from our department have opportunities to engage with the professional community, design and execute high-quality real-world projects that make difference in the community.

The students will study civil engineering core modules such as engineering mechanics, building materials, mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, building construction, environmental engineering, and surveying in the first and second years. In their last two years, they will take modules in highway and transportation engineering, concrete design, water distribution system design, wastewater treatment, geo-technical engineering, and foundation engineering. Some of the modules require the completion of laboratory experiments. The final year will culminate with a project required for all graduating students.


In this program, the student's performance in each module is assessed in various ways throughout the courses. The assessment comprises written exams, quizzes, reports, coursework, and presentations.

A summer training course, for ONE MONTH during July or August, in the fields related to the subjects that have been taken theoretically is one of the requirements in the third year.


Civil Engineering Department provides undergraduate and graduate educations originated from the rigorous treatment of engineering fundamentals coupled with modern engineering programs. We provide high-quality education opportunities in diverse civil engineering areas.

Our department committed to serving society with engineers having professional and leadership qualities in the field of civil engineering with an emphasis on high quality technical knowledge.
