Civil and Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, formerly the Department of Civil Engineering was established in 1970 alongside Electrical and Mechanical Engineering with a specific mandate of educating civil engineers in the country to the highest international professional standards. The Department’s Mission Statement is: “To provide quality education in Civil Engineering by supporting academic distinction and excellence in teaching, innovative research and technological services in the region.” The major objective of the Department is to exploit the exciting nature of the Civil Engineering profession to address the most basic needs of society. This has been attained through: giving students relevant skills and knowledge; increasing awareness of latest advances in Science and Technology and educating students on appropriate technology for national development; and inculcating professional ethics into them.

Focus is on harnessing the creativity of Civil Engineering in conception, data collection,planning,designing, constructing, evaluating performance and maintaining physical systems that sustain human enterprise. Students are prepared for professional practice in the major areas of Civil Engineering namely: Traffic and Transportation Engineering, Highway Engineering, WaterResources Engineering (Hydraulics, Hydrology, Hydro-informatics and River Engineering), Structural Dynamics and Engineering, Public Health and Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering as well as Civil Engineering Surveying.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering boasts of highly qualified human resources that train the students to the highest academic standards comparable to those of highly ranked Universities in Africa and the world. Since its inception, the Department has administered a four-year undergraduate curriculum providing a broad foundation in the above areas, leading to the award of a degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.The courses taught are clustered under Mathematics, Information & Communication Technology,Technical Drawing, technical and support courses, vocational training and design project (group and individual). The curriculum emphasizes provision of a firm theoretical and practical basis in specialty fields. It is envisaged that this leads to producing responsible and well-rounded civil engineers.

The department also offers a two year Masters of Science in Engineering in the following major specialization areas of Civil Engineering: Traffic and Transportation Engineering, Water Resources Engineering (Hydraulics, Hydrology, Hydro informatics and River Engineering), Structural Dynamics and Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering. A three- year PhD programme is also offered in all the aforementioned fields.
