B.Sc. in Civil Engineering

About the Program

Program Summary

This is a four-year program; the graduate of this program is a civil engineer whom are able to work in the design and construction of structures, roadways and bridges, hydraulic structures and water and wastewater facilities.

To qualify for the Bachelor degree from College of Engineering, all students must acquire a total of 3300 hours (during 8 semesters).

This program is concerned with introducing the students to various steps of development of Civil Engineering. In the early stages of the program, the students learn the basic topics that will reinforce their previous knowledge. In the advanced stages, the curricula go in depth to provide the students with knowledge and experience enabling them to master and control these curricula, and helping them become experts in their specialty.

The study system starts in mid-September every academic year according to the University calendar and it concludes by the end of June. During the length of this system, students must take seasonal exams and final test in every class. The department provides opportunities for students in multi-disciplinary research and study based on major disciplines to broaden their understanding of production.
