Department of Civil Engineering Jalozai Campus
The courses of study leading to the Degree of B.Sc. civil engineering have been planned to offer a broad spectrum of civil engineering subjects. The curriculum lays emphasis on subjects of structures, irrigation, geotechnical, transportation engineering,
environmental engineering and hydraulics. These courses include laboratory and design work.
The prescribed syllabi and examination standards compare favorably with the standard of under-graduate work developed in UK, USA and Canada. In addition to course work, the final year students are required to work on a project under the guidance of senior faculty members. Study tours and extension lectures are also arranged during the session for the benefit of the studens. Second year or third year students during their summer break and final year students after passing the final examination in civil engineering may work with some recognized organizations, registered with PEC or government department or semi-government department to acquire practical training of 800 hours for award of degree.
