The Civil Engineering Department at the University of Sulaimani offers high quality undergraduate, graduate programs to students, creating a sustainable civilization designed in respect for people and their environment. Graduates from our department (young engineers) are expected to be capable of taking leadership positions in the broad field of civil engineering: structural engineering, green transportation, geotechnical engineering, water resources, wastewater engineering, sustainability and managements.

Studying in the department started from the academic year 1996-1997 with 29 registered students and offers a four year (BSc.) degree in Engineering Science.

Postgraduate studies leading to (MSc.) and (PhD.) degrees in the field of Structural Engineering have begun in the department since the academic year 1998 – 1999 and many students obtained their degrees in this field. And currently, the department is offering a Diploma degree. Apart from the theoretical studies, students are training in laboratories for testing different construction materials like cement, aggregates, concrete, soil, steel besides clean and waste-water treatments.


The primary focus of the department is to expose the young minds to the world of technology, instilling confidence and fortitude to face new challenges, enabling them to shine in their chosen field of building construction and structures. The aim of the department is to provide the students with high-quality education and to implement the 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.
