Welcome to the
Department of Civil Engineering (CE)

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.

The department of Civil Engineering that functions under the umbrella of Faculty of Engineering Studies at BUFT has been established in 2018. At the moment the department is offering one undergraduate program leading to Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree.

Program of Study

The department offers an undergraduate program leading to Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (B.Sc. in CE) degree. The program is constructed of an interdisciplinary curriculum drawing on diverse sciences, mathematics and civil engineering principles.

B.Sc. in CE (Code: 000)

The graduates of the department will be prepared with a solid foundation in mathematics, sciences and technical skill needed to analyze and design civil infrastructure system. Graduates will possess strong written and oral communication skill.

Profile of the program
  • Name of the Degree: Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, abbreviated as BSc in CE
  • No. of credits: 160
  • Language of Instruction: English
  • Courses Start: Spring (January) & Fall (July) each year
  • Standard time to attain the Degree: Four years (eight semesters, six months each)
  • Minimum grade to attain the Degree: 2.50 in a scale of 4.00

They will be familiar with current and emerging civil engineering and global issues and have an understanding of ethical and societal responsibilities. The department always help their graduates obtaining necessary qualification for employment in Civil Engineering and related professions, for entry into advanced studies and for assuring eventual leadership roles in their profession.

The graduates will have the ability to get professional licensure and will recognize the need of engaging in lifelong learning.
