About the Department


Civil and environmental engineers help society  function at its best. The work of civil engineers is seen everywhere; they are responsible for the infrastructure; roads, Bridges, buildings, and facilities that provide clean water to drink, and air to breath.

Civil engineering is evolving! With smart applications, a focus on sustainability, and a wide usage of advanced computer application to tackle complex engineering challenges, you will be trained and inspired to shape a greener future!

“Engineering for Sustainability” model requires the cooperation of multiplicity of disciplines,  therefore, we educate the students in a multidisciplinary environment to address engineering fundamentals and technologies for green buildings, new materials and sensors for smart infrastructure systems to ensure meeting the growing industry needs.

Strategic Vision

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering conducts cutting-edge research and education in vital areas:

  • Sustainable infrastructures and smart cities
  • well-designed and well-operated buildings
  • Optimal and efficient water and environmental systems
  • Smart transportation
  • Water - food - energy nexus

The department offers incomparable opportunities for students to experience groundbreaking local civil and environmental engineering projects through a participation in a local training for 160 hours and an international internship in Germany and Extends for 20 weeks.

Academic Structure

The Department of Civil and Environmental engineering offers two tracks that students can choose from after their third year: Sustainable Structures and Smart Mobility Track, and Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Development Track. The students in each program should complete 173 credit hours including 24 Credit hours in one of our German partner universities.
