DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING
Civil Engineering is the spine of any nation, as the civil engineers build the infrastructure of the nation. The Department of Civil Engineering (DCE) is one of three departments at the College of Engineering & Technology (CET), UOS. In 2014, with an approval from Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), Bachelor of Sciences (BS) in Civil Engineering program started w. e. f. Fall Semester in September 2014. Currently, the curriculum is based on the Outcome-based Education (OBE), which is in line with the requirements of PEC and Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan. A team of dedicated faculty and staff members (many holding MS from the renowned national and international Universities) teach and train the best mind of the area.
Mission of Department of Civil Engineering, UOS is:
“To provide an educational, professional and intellectual environment for students, faculty, alumni and staff that enables them to contribute to society through teaching, research practice and services”.
PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEOs)
As per recommendation of the Industrial advisory Board (IAB) Civil Engineering program has following objectives:
PEO1: Apply the knowledge to investigate, analyze, design and solve the real world complex problems in the area of Civil Engineering
PEO2: Demonstrate the effective communication in multidisciplinary environment
PEO3: Enhance the skills by learning the modern tool and techniques
PEO4: Make ethical decisions at individual, team and project level by considering the social and environmental concerns.
Program learning outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills and attitude that the students acquire while progressing through the program.
PLO 1: Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
PLO 2: Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
PLO 3: Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
PLO 4: Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
PLO 5: Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
PLO 6: The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
