Civil Engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines and has been playing a pivotal role in planning, designing, and managing the projects in the fields of structure, water resources, transportation, and geotechnical engineering. The design and construction of complex engineering structures would not have been possible without the continued research and development on innovative materials and methods of construction and design.

Department of Civil Engineering at C.U.S.T. endeavors to provide the latest Outcome Based Education (OBE) system so that graduates can contribute towards betterment of the society in professional and ethical manners. Both theoretical and practical skills are inculcated in students in a conducive environment. These skills are further enhanced through mandatory internship, survey camps, community services and final year project.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

  • FSc/A-levels (pre-engineering) securing at least 60% marks in aggregate. In case of foreign qualification, equivalence from IBCC will be required.
  • CUST Admission Test or HEC Approved Test.

DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

Each candidate for the BS Civil Engineering degree is required to successfully complete the survey camp, community work and internship as well as to earn 136 credit hours as per university recommendations.
