BS Civil Engineering Menu

Civil engineering undergraduate programs typically span three to four years and include a mix of theoretical and lab study. The course outline of civil engineering at the undergraduate level emphasis on teamwork, with groups formed for surveys and other initiatives to build the teamwork attitude needed in the workplace. During field trips and internships, students get the opportunity to learn in a creative setting.

Civil Engineering in Pakistan

At the undergraduate level, civil engineering students learn the practical applications of science, specifically physics and math, while solving maintenance and design issues while keeping financial, environmental, ethical, and legal factors in mind. The first two semesters of civil engineering will be devoted to a mix of fundamentals of specialized fields, including hydraulics, mechanics, geology, material sciences, and statistical analysis and applications.

Modern technology and its use have been recognized earlier in the civil engineering sector and universities understand its necessity. Hence, the course also includes a large portion of lab work comprising of learning CAD (Computer-aided design) which helps develop and polish design skills in students. Below given are the course outlines of BS Civil engineering at five Pakistani universities.
