About Us


The Department of Civil Engineering (DCE) at East West University starts its journey in 2017. The department offers four-year Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree program in Civil Engineering (CE) with an ambition of developing competent work force for the continuous demands in this sector at both home and abroad. The curriculum of the degree is prepared with the intension to groom up the students to effectively contribute in all aspects of Civil Engineering. Therefore, the curriculum of the B.Sc. in Civil Engineering (CE) program focuses on (i) Structural Engineering, which involves the design of structures (Buildings, bridges, flyover, tunnel, tower, retaining walls, etc.) that should be safe for the users, be economical, and accomplish the desired functions. (ii) Geotechnical Engineering, which deals with soils, rocks, foundations of buildings and bridges, highways, sewers and underground water systems. (iii) Water Resources Engineering that concerns the management of quantity and quality of water in the underground and above ground water resources, such as rivers, lakes and streams. Geographical areas are analyzed to forecast the amount of water that will flow into and out of a water source. Fields of hydrology, geology, and environmental science are included in this discipline of Civil Engineering, (iv) Environmental Engineering, which is related to the science of waste management of all types, purification of water, cleaning of contaminated areas, reduction of pollution, and industrial ecology and (v) Transportation Engineering, where technology and scientific principles are applied to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods.

Now-a-days, Civil Engineers have to be more interactive with the society and they must possess a very broad skill set, from cost accounting to geology as well. Many Civil Engineering works require a very hands-on role in construction, while others may demand more heavily weighted toward supervisory and administrative skills. Civil Engineers are often called upon to present reports to the public or government officials. Whatever the details of their role, Civil Engineers must often manage very complex projects, leading many to specialize in one of several areas. Therefore, along with the technical skills the other required skills are skills of visualization and critical thinking, management and leadership skill, and excellent communication skill. The curriculum and the teaching-learning methodology of the undergraduate program has been designed such a fashion that along with the technical skills, they will also acquire other important skills such as critical thinking, management, leadership and excellent communication skill.

Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering at the Faculty of Sciences and Engineering, East West University (EWU), Bangladesh. It is one of the Engineering Departments of EWU, which started offering the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Degree to the students in Spring, 2017. Our faculty are highly qualified person in their fields, and our students have the opportunity to contact with them directly. Our approach is highly collaborative with the practical one, and we stress the exploration of innovative and even unconventional ideas.

Civil Engineering is one of the most comprehensive branches of the Engineering discipline which service to people and the surroundings in which they live more closely. Civil Engineering is related to whatever serves for human life, either directly or indirectly such as services relating to Structures, Roads, Water-Supply and Sewerage systems, Environment, Surveying works etc. Civil Engineering links all the stages of these services project works starting with the Idea, Studies and Planning, Design and Stipulations, Execution (Implementation) or (Construction Stage), Site Supervision and Operation and Maintenance. The tasks of Engineering Management for construction projects are assigned mostly to Civil Engineers.

At the Department of Civil Engineering, students complete theoretical study with the best practices in teaching & learning methodologies and practical experience using state of the art facilities and laboratories for all the branches of Civil Engineering such as, Concrete and Structural Engineering, Soil and Geotechnical Engineering, Highways and Transportation Engineering, Hydraulics and Water Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Materials and Construction Engineering, Surveying and Geomatics Engineering.

If you are interested in learning more about our department or familiarizing yourself with admissions requirements for our undergraduate program, don’t hesitate to contact me at naimul@ewubd.edu We look forward to hearing from you.

Vision and Mission

 

Civil engineering is gaining more importance in the world today, as there is an increasing need for buildings and structures to be constructed. Civil Engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies. As such, the career prospects for Civil Engineers are very bright. Recently Bangladesh has fulfilled  the requirements of developing country and would be elevated to as a developing country, definitely it will be required to develop the infrastructures and facilities of the country and this will create new scopes of jobs for Civil Engineers. Already an number of mega projects have been launched such as Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant, Padma Bridge, Metro Rail, Paira Sea Port and LNG terminal etc. and other new projects are in the pipeline. A career in Civil Engineering can be very challenging, but it promises great rewards. Therefore, in the current scenario of higher education, Civil Engineering has become one of the most important areas of science and engineering education.
