Civil engineers are modern-day champions that we cannot live without! They play a pivotal role in shaping our world, from infrastructure to environmental solutions.
At the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), we offer a comprehensive bachelor of engineering (BE) program with a major in civil engineering (CE).
Join us to harness your potential and engineer a sustainable and dynamic future.
Civil engineering in a nutshell
Civil engineering is an integral part of our daily lives, deeply woven into the very fabric of our infrastructure, environment, and society. Civil engineers confront complex challenges as the profession is in continuous change. From building taller, more robust, and cost-effective structures to designing systems to combat the threats of climate change, civil engineers are always ready to provide a better quality of life. They are problem solvers with expertise accumulated over time by mitigating natural hazards and environmental concerns. They are responsible citizens and pioneers in developing sustainable solutions for an equitable society.
The BE program in civil engineering is composed of
143 credit hours. The curriculum incorporates essential mathematics, science, engineering, and general education components to prepare students for a successful career.
- In the first two years, the basic engineering and science courses are offered.
third and fourth years include mainly technical courses covering design, analysis, laboratory, and computer applications in the major areas of civil engineering.
- During the summer of the third year, all students are required to undergo training in a professional capacity working in either contracting or consulting firms, in Lebanon or abroad.
- During the final year, the students select technical elective courses and a final year project that allows them to enhance their knowledge in various CE areas, which best suits their interest and career desires.
