Objectives

Educational Objectives describe the expected accomplishments of graduates from the civil engineering program within the first few years of graduation. They are written, approved and publicized for external constituencies (e.g., prospective students and their parents, graduate programs, employers).

The main aim of the construction and building engineering program is to prepare individuals for a professional career in construction and building engineering by providing graduates with the technical skills, personal skills and knowledge in construction and building engineering. The main objective of the program is to produce and qualify graduates of the construction and building engineering department to:

  • Secure a successful career in large construction companies, consultancy firms and client organizations.
  • Contribute in satisfying the construction industry needs from construction engineers (field engineers, designers, surveyors, planners, project managers … etc.).
  • Be admitted in post-graduate studies at reputable academic institutions and contribute to development of the profession through publication in journals.
  • Contribute to the discipline of construction/civil engineering by participating in professional societies and attending conferences.
