Why CEE at NSU

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as buildings, roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, and railways. Historically civil engineering is linked to knowledge of materials science, mechanics, structures, geology, soils, hydrology, environment, sanitation and other fields. Civil engineering is traditionally broken into a number of sub-disciplines viz., structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, water resources engineering and environmental engineering. Besides, construction engineering, coastal engineering, earthquake engineering, surveying, material science and engineering, urban (municipal) engineering fall into broad classifications of civil engineering.

The main objective of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DCEE) at NSU is to provide and equip students with the highest level of technical competencies, social responsibility, leadership and lifelong learning skills for successful careers in civil engineering. The department is equipped with high quality faculty members having academic affiliation from reputed universities in the world and professional bodies of North America, laboratories are equipped with all the branded instruments and facilities in addition to modern classrooms, IT and library facilities.

The Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering (BSCEE) degree is the most modern and globally used version of the traditional Civil Engineering degree that follows Outcome-based Education (OBE) method. The BSCEE program is approved by the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh and accredited by the Board of Accreditation for Engineering and Technical Education (BAETE) of the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB). The BSCEE graduates are fully eligible for employment or business in professional engineering fields, both at home and abroad.
