Our vision is to build a vibrant learning environment founded on value-based academic principles, wherein all involved shall contribute effectively and efficiently.
Our mission is to serve and develop the surrounding community through teaching the theories of Structural Engineering along with their practical applications. We also educate students' fundamental concepts, critical thinking, technical skills and ethical principles as applied to engineering analysis and design. The target is to provide quality education to our graduates, to cope up with international standards, and to regularly update. The department laboratories provide consultancy services to government and industrial sectors for maintaining high standards in the Structural Engineering field. Additionally, we excel in scientific research with appropriate national and international linkages. Structural Engineer will typically be in the employment of a consulting engineering practice in an office environment preparing the plans and specifications for structures as buildings, towers, stadia and bridges. On the other hand, in the construction field, the Structural Engineer will typically work for a civil engineering contractor supervising the erection of the structure concerned.
Based on the career prospects, the courses have been designed to lay emphasis on various specializations of Structural Engineering. The courses and curriculum are modified regularly to meet the standards of reputed foreign Universities and to cope up with recent developments. The courses are planned with our experienced faculty members including the following:
- Structural and Stress Analysis.
- Theory of Structures.
- Reinforced Concrete Design.
- Structural Steel Design.
- Earthquake Engineering.
- Geotechnical Engineering.
- Properties and Testing of materials.
- Construction Management.
The graduate has various job opportunities either in design or in construction field. In the design environment, a Structural Engineer will typically be in the employment of a consulting engineering practice in an office environment preparing the plans and specifications for structures as buildings, towers, stadia and bridges. On the other hand, in the construction field, the Structural Engineer will typically work for a civil engineering contractor supervising the erection of the structure concerned.
