Welcome to the School of Civil Engineering TUF. The program of Civil Engineering in the University has recently been started keeping in view the high market demand of Civil Engineers. This program has been launched with the prior approval of Pakistan Engineering Council.

Civil engineering is one of the oldest branches of Engineering, dating back to when people first started living in permanent settlements and began shaping their environments to suit their needs.Civil Engineers design, construct, supervise, operate and maintain large construction projects and systems, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment. These Engineers may also handle site preparation activities, such as excavation, earth moving and grading for large construction projects. Additionally, Civil Engineers may conduct or write the specifications for destructive or nondestructive testing of the performance, reliability and long-term durability of materials and structures.

Today’s Civil Engineers need in-depth understanding of physics, mathematics, geology and hydrology. They must also know the properties of a wide range of construction materials, such as concrete and structural steel, and the types and capabilities of construction machinery. With this knowledge, Engineers can design structures that meet requirements for cost, safety, reliability, durability and energy efficiency.

These Engineers can be involved in nearly every stage of a major construction project. That can include site selection, writing specifications for processes and materials, reviewing bids from subcontractors, ensuring compliance with building codes, and supervising all phases of construction from grading and earth moving to painting and finishing. More and more, Civil Engineers rely on computer-aided design (CAD) systems therefore, proficiency with computers is essential.
