Ziauddin University has recently established Faculty of Engineering Science & Technology. The endeavors of ZUFEST are Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering & Software Engineering. As per the mission of University, Department of Civil Engineering is committed to provide state of the art lab facilities, interactive learning environment and highly qualified faculty.

Ziauddin University, Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology is offering 4 years program entitling BS Civil Engineering with the formulation of theory and laboratories complete information. The department of Civil Engineering is well equipped with laboratories of surveying, construction engineering, fluid mechanics, strength of materials, drawing halls and engineering mechanics. Not only that, the balance is created in theory and practical knowledge with the induction of highly qualified and senior faculty members having enough field and research experiences. Lab staff and attendants are also available for supporting actions. In order to strengthen the research area of Civil Engineering, departmental library has been established having sufficient number of civil engineering titles in specialization. The program has started with prior NOC from PEC. The curriculum is in line with HEC/NCRC. In factual terms, by the end of course program, the student will be in position to select and set in stable point of Civil Engineering followed by technical skills learned.

Scope and Opportunities of Civil Engineering

The field of Civil Engineering is achieving its high demand with the passage of time and with growing trend. It is an undoubted truth that there is increase in number of development of high rise buildings and infrastructure so it is an immense need to be the part of profession of Civil Engineering in a broader perspective of field specialization. The demand of Civil Engineering is almost equal in its all areas including Construction Management, Traffic or Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Urban Engineering, Coastal & Harbor Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Structural Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The area of Civil Engineering is very broad and linked with industrial development. Some salient features are as follows:

  • The students will be able to explore or developed their own construction industries or business as consultants, contractors and designers.
  • Imparting their knowledge in water resources area with the development of dams, barrages, culverts etc.
  • Strengthen the area of Irrigation Engineering in undeveloped areas of Pakistan.
  • To produce and may get along with the transportation firms for traffic management studies, safety and accident studies, signage plans, road furniture and infrastructure improvement plans.
  • Students may approach and join hands with the soil testing laboratories.
  • Students may play vital role with the industries for waste water treatment and solid waste management in the purview of CPEC.
  • Students can engage with the public, private and education sector as well.

Eligibility Criteria

The criteria for students seeking admission to BS Civil Engineering are as follows:
