 Message from the Chairman

Welcome to the website of the Department of Civil Engineering of Port City International University (PCIU). Choosing the right academic program at the tertiary level is a crucial step for your career and your life. We offer you a very high-quality engineering degree and a unique opportunity to match engineering with the life you’ve always dreamed of achieving. Our engineering program will prepare you for success with core civil engineering knowledge, expert academic advising, world-class faculty, innovative learning, and a dedication to career advancement. One of the major strengths of our department is its extremely qualified faculty members. They mentor and provide all-out help to our students so that they grow as professional civil engineers by acquiring appropriate knowledge and practical experiences, attending technical seminars and conferences, and practicing leadership.

In a modern world, everybody is aware of critical infrastructure needs for the society that range from roads for safe and environmentally friendly transportation to buildings to buried pipelines for the distribution of clean water. To assure that public and private investments meet both our immediate and long-term needs, we must develop a sustainable mindset, innovative project management approaches, and technologies that create our future built environment. As you may know, civil engineering is a broad field that applies engineering principles primarily to the public domain infrastructure, including transportation, water resources, buildings, and other structures such as dams and bridges. Civil engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities such as high-rise buildings, airports, roads, water treatment centers, and sanitation plants. They balance the needs of society with technical and economic feasibility. PCIU’s civil engineers work to achieve safe and sustainable development through “green” engineering.

 

Starting its journey in 2013, the Department of Civil Engineering of PCIU has come a long way and has become one of the leading departments of the university. Since its inception, the department has endeavored to produce quality engineers to serve the nation and abroad. Well-equipped laboratory facilities and expanded curricula covering degrees in Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering attest to the continuous development process of the department. Many of the graduates are working in different government and private organizations in Bangladesh. Numerous graduates are also working abroad. Some graduates are doing master's and Ph.D. in Bangladesh and abroad.

 

The department believes that academic activities supplemented by extra-curricular and relevant co-curricular activities will produce well-rounded students ready to tackle the challenges of the world. The department organizes different activities including fresher's reception, farewell, cultural program, religious festivals, a celebration of national occasions, quiz competition, debate competition, different kinds of seminars, and workshops related to academic matters and contemporary issues.

 

The objectives for the establishment of the Department of Civil Engineering are in line with the vision of PCIU to become an exemplary university of internationally acknowledged stature, and excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship. Furthermore, our academic program and learning environment have been designed to contribute to the quality and intellectual development of the students. Successful Civil Engineering graduates are creative, good communicators, and skilled at solving problems and delivering results. With these qualities, our graduates not only develop careers as high-quality practicing engineers but are also sought by top companies for their potential in management, finance, consulting, and other senior professional positions.

BSc in CEN

Civil Engineering; being the second-oldest engineering discipline, is concerned with the planning, design, construction and management of the physical and naturally built environment. In fact our department in Port City International University deals with the continuation and technical applications of one of the most ancient human skills; that of building and shaping the world around us. Our vision here is to groom our students to their fullest potential and hence to become a school of excellence that brings out civil engineers with high technical competencies who can make differences in this era of achieving sustainability in every sphere of life.

 

Our people are our core strength. Currently the department has 17 full-time faculty members (4 on study leave) along with 7 adjunct faculty members from CUET. With a view to providing best possible laboratory experiences, the department has established five (5) well-equipped laboratories covering five major sub-divisions of Civil Engineering viz. Structural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Water Resources Engineering with an additional plan of offering material testing and consultancy services in not so distant future.

 

Apart from the academic programs, we organize comprehensive training on computer aided design, project management etc. and actively participate in activities of national and international engineering professional bodies. Besides the department regularly arranges field visits, study tours, seminars, and programs on extracurricular activities and has already signed a MOU with CUET for effective collaboration.
