The Department of Civil Engineering is dedicated to produce quality professional engineers with abilities to design, manage and operate Civil Engineering based fields. Experienced and highly qualified dedicated faculty, state-of-the-art laboratories, well-equipped class rooms, excellent book bank in library, and allied facilities in a purpose-built campus speak about quality and conducive educational environment of the department and the institute.

It is due to quality education that Capital University of Science and Technology (CUST) has achieved the honor for being among top few Pakistani universities and the first among private institutions whose BS Civil Engineering Program is accreditated on Outcome Based Assessment (OBA) by Pakistan Engineering Council (status as in March 2018). CUST also has the honor to become the first university to get the accreditartion on OBA for its pioneer batch of Civil Engineering. Faculty and staff of Civil Engineering Department is committed to maintain OBA in its true letter and spirit. Although, the standards achived so far are incomparable at national level, the avidity for excellence is not over yet, the department is still in its course to compete with well-renowned international institutes.

The department is also offering graduate programs in four specialization areas. There are four major research groups where the faculty is actively involved in research activities. The MS/ PhD students are associated with these research groups that give them the practical experience and flavor of modern technological research.
