Department of Civil Engineering

Department of Civil Engineering

Department of Civil Engineering is established with the Affiliation of University of Engineering & Technology (UET) Lahore.Civil engineers are central figures in community development. Without their unique talents, communities would not grow and prosper.

Buildings and roads provide the basis of city infrastructure. Engineers not only provide them, but they use their skills to optimize performance and efficiency of community systems. They also develop water and sewer systems that balance safety standards with delivery of water and sewer processing, which are key functions in city operation and residents' health and comfort.

Civil engineers do engineering work specific to building and improving community infrastructures. They plan, design and monitor new building construction and improvements, rail and roadway projects, bridges, irrigation and sewer systems, dams and other physical structures.

Message from Head of Department

Our aim is to become a centre of excellence for research and education in the field of civil engineering & technology. We are proud of our teaching faculty which is competent, qualified and experienced. The faculty is devoted to their teaching with one objective to impart skills to the students so that they can achieve professional competence and become responsible civil engineers.

We consider educating and nourishing the next generation of engineers as a key role in the technological development of the society. The faculty at Civil Engineering Department is equipped with vast academic and research experience and is instrumental in providing excellence both theoretically and practically. Chenab College will fulfill its responsibility of graduating culturally enlightened, technologically knowledgeable, academically competent and research-oriented productive citizens who will be prepared to lead, to inspire, and to serve humanity.

Mission Statement

To provide high quality education in civil engineering fundamentals, applications, and skills that prepares graduates for successful professional careers.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve after few years of graduation. The PEOs for the B.Sc. civil engineering program reflect the mission of the College and the mission of the program. They are important for successful professional practice and the ability to pursue advanced degrees. The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are to produce graduates who can exhibit following traits after five (05) years of graduation: Graduates will be highly competent and employable demonstrating sound knowledge and skills.

PEO-1:Graduates will be leaders demonstrating effective teamwork and interpersonal skills.
PEO-2:Graduates will discharge their professional and societal obligations displaying high moral and ethical standards.
PEO-3:3. Graduates will pursue lifelong learning through postgraduate education and continued development of technical and managerial skills.
PEO-4: 4. Graduates incorporate economic, environmental and sustainability considerations into the practice of civil engineering and are contributors to society through their problem solving capabilities.
