The Civil Engineering programme at BAU is arguably one of the oldest engineering disciplines. It deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and natural built environment, including buildings, roads, bridges, dams, and canals.

Overview

It is a wide ranging profession, including different sub-disciplines, structural engineering, materials science, geotechnical engineering, water resources, surveying, and transportation engineering.

The program aim:

The aim of the Civil Engineering programme at BAU is to ensure that graduates will have a fundamental engineering knowledge, problem solving skills, and team working skills in order to be employed by various organizations, including consulting/design firms, construction firms, governmental agencies, laboratories, law firms, insurance firms and colleges/universities as

  • Project engineers
  • Surveyors
  • Supervisors
  • Managers
  • Researchers
  • Academicians

The objectives that graduates of the bachelor of science degree in civil engineering to have at the end of the program:

  • The ability to apply knowledge of science and engineering
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues in civil and construction engineering
  • The ability to use modern civil engineering techniques, skills and tools
  • The ability to communicate effectively  and function on multidisciplinary teams
  • An understanding of the necessity to engage in life-long learning
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities
  • An understanding of leadership
  • An  understanding of environmental sustainability and sustainable development
  • The ability to design for earthquake resistant structures
  • The ability to identify and solve transportation related problems all around the country

The vast majority of civil engineering constitutes materials science and physics.  As mankind aims to build bigger buildings, utilizing living and working space better, civil engineers face new challenges in making structures which are stronger, more resistant to natural disasters and have greater capacities. With the increasing world population, frequency of extreme weather events, and congestion, and depletion of natural resources, civil engineering remains as a growing and more challenging field.

As a civil engineer, there is always a lot to do, as the skills of civil engineers are virtually always in high demand throughout many different industries. The graduates of Civil Engineering program are typically employed by government agencies, private industry or engineering consulting firms and their skills, knowledge and competencies are utilized by these organizations for application of different sub-disciplines, such as structural engineering, transportation engineering, hydraulic engineering, and geotechnical engineering. Civil engineering knowledge has increased through the years to where each of these specialties needs its own training. Although all of these sub-disciplines are considered part of civil engineering, each of them needs its own vast area of knowledge.
