Outcome Based Edication (OBE)
The vision of the civil engineering department is to produce excellent professionals, who will provide engineering solutions to infrastructure development and be able to manage environment leading to a sustainable socio-economic development.
The mission of the department is to educate students in a student-centered dynamic learning environment, to enhance their skills in line with the program outcomes, to provide advanced facility for conducting forward-looking inter and multi-disciplinary research to meet the challenges of 21st century and to motivate them toward life-long learning process.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
The Department of Civil Engineering forms the foundation for professional and personal development of the graduates that are expected within few years after graduation. The goal of the department is encompassed by the following educational objectives:
PEO 1: The graduates excel in their engineering career in the public and private sectors or academia by applying the knowledge acquired in mathematical, computing and engineering principles and enhancing their skills.
PEO2: The graduates engage themselves toward lifelong learning and the pursuit of post graduate or other professional education including continuous professional development.
PEO 3: The graduates are engaged in design and analysis of civil engineering systems after considering safety, sustainability, economic and social impacts of engineering decisions.
PEO 4: The graduates demonstrates professionalism, ethics, and ability to work in inter and multi-disciplinary team and to adapt to the latest trends and technology.
