Department Of
CIVIL ENGINEERING

Accredited under Level II of Outcome Based Education System (OBE), the department of Civil Engineering at IBADAT International University, Islamabad is committed to provide quality education to our students in an environment conducive for teaching and learning.  An efficient transfer of Civil Engineering knowledge has been the key motivation for the department. The highly qualified faculty and staff along with state-of-the-art lab facilities ensure that the future engineers will be capable of serving up to their best capabilities in field of civil engineering, nationally and internationally, in a professional, ethical and sustainable manner.

A balanced approach of theoretical concepts and their practical applications in Curriculum design enables our students to face real-world challenges with confidence.  We educate and train our students about the vital importance of environmental impacts of construction activities so that they can become a valuable asset for the sustainable development of society. A strong collaboration of Industry – Academia linkage is always appreciated. Students are always encouraged to explore their curiosity through proper mentoring system for their professional as well academic careers. The department has established a well-coordinated guiding system to counsel and support the students along with special session to guidance for their field of choice. It is our prime objective to prepare and equip our students with the latest knowledge and tools to meet the practical challenges to lead and serve their society in an ethical and sustainable manner.

The Department of Civil Engineering has designed the following Educational Objectives for the BS Civil Engineering program that are aligned with the program mission, vision, and mission of the university by the involvement of all stakeholders.  

PEO 1: Graduates will play an active role in engineering practices, academia, research, and development.
PEO 2: Graduates will be capable to address practical problems and adapt to changes in technology as well as needs of the society.
PEO 3: Graduates will continue exploring knowledge to develop professional competence and awareness about engineering practices and environmental concerns.
PEO 4: Graduates will prove trustworthy and resourceful team members as well as team managers practicing codes of ethics.
These Program Learning outcomes (PLOs) are the learning outcomes, which will be inculcated to the students to equip their knowledge, skills, and ethics as enlisted below:  

PLO 1 - Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
PLO 2 - Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
PLO 3 - Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
PLO 4 - Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
PLO 5 - Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
PLO 6 - The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
PLO 7 - Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
PLO 8 - Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
PLO 9 - Individual and Teamwork: An ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings.
PLO 10 - Communication: An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
PLO 11 - Project Management: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
PLO 12 - Lifelong Learning: ability to recognize importance of and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.

CAREER PROSPECTS

There are various opportunities for the graduates of civil engineering in the government departments, such as NHA, WAPDA, Communication and Works, Railways, Irrigation Department, Military Engineering Services, NESCOM, PAEC, Development Authorities, National and Multinational Consultancy Services, Contractor Firms and Entrepreneurship. The graduates will play a key role in the execution of projects like roads, buildings, bridges, dams, barrages, housing societies infrastructure, and quality testing laboratories. Graduates can also pursue their careers in academia as faculty and researchers. They can also explore the prospects of entrepreneurship by starting their own contractor/consultancy firms. We, however, do consider our students to be the most valued asset. If you happen to be those fortunate students who wish to pursue a career in Civil Engineering, we commit to impart the knowledge, the professional skills and a positive attitude to realize your dreams. We will groom you into professionals who are always in demand in the national and international market.
