Civil Engineering Department.

Civil Engineering Study Plan

Water and Environmental Engineering Study Plan



Significant progress has taken place in recent years in the field of Civil Engineering. The need for design qualifications in Civil Engineering are also on the rise. The aim of this department is to extend the knowledge and expertise in a wide range of Civil Engineering subject areas. The department provides a thorough understanding of each subject area.
The academic staff have established strengths in certain areas of Civil Engineering such as: Structures, Soils Mechanics, Foundations, Environment, and Water Resources. Current research by the academic staff covers many broad and complementary areas.
The department was established in l990. Currently it has 16 faculty members with 204 undergraduate students. The department offers (B.Sc.) degree in Civil Engineering through an integrated study plan which consists of the basic science, mathematics, and computer courses, in addition to the core courses in Structural Analysis, Reinforced Concrete and Steel Design, Traffic and Highway Construction and Design, Soil Mechanics, Foundation Design, Water Resources and Sanitary Engineering, and Construction Engineering and Management. The department has several state-of the-art laboratories which have been designed to implement the basic theoretical knowledge in the fields of Civil Engineering. Currently, the department is finalizing a proposed study to introduce the M.Sc. degree in the very near future.
Teaching and Research labs:

1- Serving Laboratory.
2- Asphalt and Road Construction Materials Laboratory.
3- Soil Mechanics Laboratory.
4- Water and Hydraulics Laboratory.
5- Sanitary Engineering Laboratory.


 


Vision:


That the Department of Civil Engineering and the Environment of the sections of excellence in the preparation, construction and graduation competencies and engineering capabilities and provide an outstanding environment for teaching and scientific research. Keep pace with the times so that the proceedings at the national level and the academic world and through the development of curricula and the development of scientific and administrative staff and the creation of an active role by expanding the services provided to the community


Mission:


The development of the scientific and academic for all cadres ofthe College of Engineering faculty members and administrative staff and students in accordance with the most importantinternational quality standards in this area as well as work on the development of curricula and study plans in line with labor market needs of actual and follow-up of graduates and to assist inemployment commensurate with their qualifications.


Objectives:


1 - graduation of qualified leaders in the specialty of Electrical Engineering (Communications, Electronics, power and control)and numbers to meet the needs of the labor market.
2 - provide students with basic scientific knowledge and impart theskills necessary to perform the tasks assigned to it in the future to the fullest.
3 - Training students on the skills of applied scientific research in the field of specialization.
4 - community service.
