Department of Civil


The prime objective of our university is to offer high quality education at undergraduate and post graduate levels in coherence with the needs of the society of the 21st century. The aim of the University is not only just to go through the examination, but to train them to become productive members of the society.


Civil Engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines that plays an active role for offering comfortable living of human life in this planet. Civil engineers build the world’s infrastructure. In doing so, they quietly shape the history of nations around the world. Most people cannot imagine life without the many contributions of civil engineers to the public’s health, safety and standard of living. It is devoted to the improvement of the human Environment for the purposes of making our activities productive, safe, and enjoyable, while providing aesthetically pleasing surroundings. The civil engineer plans, designs, constructs and maintains physical works and facilities that are deemed essential to modern life. Civil Engineering includes the broad categories of construction, structural engineering, soil mechanics and foundations, transportation systems, water resources, hydraulic engineering, Environmental engineering, Irrigation Engineering, Coastal and Ocean Engineering, surveying and mapping, city planning and municipal engineering. Civil engineers require not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. Administrative or supervisory jobs are held by many civil engineers while others work in devising, composing, constructing, researching and teaching jobs.


The Department has a good number of full-time faculty members with best available exposures to ever-growing horizon of Civil Engineering. Besides, a number of part-time faculties from other well-reputed universities also teach in each trimester, and students have the opportunity to visit Research Organizations and Industrial Establishments for attaining experienced-rich education.


The main objective of the Department of Civil Engineering (CE) at ZHSUST is to provide and equip students with the highest level of technical competencies, social responsibility, leadership and lifelong learning skills for successful careers in civil engineering.
