Department of Civil Engineering

B. Sc. in Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering at UITS comprises of four major divisions: Environmental and Water Resources Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, and Transportation Engineering. The divisions offer basic and advanced optional courses in the above disciplines. Research on the above fields is extremely important in the national context. These include areas like behavior of available building and road materials with emphasis on indigenous materials, engineering soil properties of various regions of the country, low-cost cyclone resistant housing, seismic zoning of Bangladesh, waste management, environmental pollution control, environmental impact assessment, traffic simulation, transport system modeling, traffic safety studies, etc. Some research projects of more fundamental nature viz. application of finite element techniques in tackling engineering problems, dynamic behavior of multistoried buildings, soil-structure interaction, concrete technology etc. pursued in this Department have greatly contributed to advancement of knowledge. To meet the national demand, the division of Environmental and Water Resources Engineering trains engineers specializing in hydrology, hydraulics, rain water harvesting, salinity intrusion, irrigation, drainage, flood control, land reclamation, bank protection, river stabilization, ground water, sedimentation problems and coastal engineering.

The course curriculum of 160.0-credits of the program prepared following the requirements of BAETE and ABET has been assessed by the curriculum specialists of the Department of Civil Engineering, BUET. Strength lies with 21 full time faculties with degrees mostly from BUET and higher studies abroad like USA, Australia, and Canada etc.
