About Department Civil Engineering, Feni University

Civil Engineering 
Civil engineering is the planning, design and construction of projects that define a civilization. Civil engineers have built landmarks that now stand as tributes to the profession's creative spirit and ingenuity. From buildings and roads to water and bridges, civil engineering is everywhere.
The role of civil engineers, in the broadest sense, is to apply technology to develop sustainable solutions to meet society's needs. Civil engineers plan, design, construct, and operate facilities used daily by the public and industry, such as buildings, transportation networks, and water and wastewater systems. They work at the intersection of the built, natural, and information environments. Today's civil and environmental engineers are also called upon by government and industry to provide leadership on complex technical and societal issues such as demands for infrastructure improvement, remediation of hazardous waste sites, energy production, transmission and use, climate change adaptation, provision of safe drinking water, and incorporation of environmental safeguards in new infrastructure designs.

Civil engineering at Feni University
Civil engineering requires broad technical training and strong communication skills because of the complexity of large projects and the interactions with engineers in other fields, lawyers, public officials, and stakeholders. Feni University’s curriculum provides this versatility for professional practice in civil and environmental engineering and as a strong foundation for other professional pursuits.

The Department of Civil Engineering offers a wide spectrum of opportunities for entry into the engineering profession, for graduate education in engineering, or entry into various other graduate and professional fields. While maintaining its emphasis on the fundamental understanding of the behavior of constructed facilities through the application of the physical sciences, biology, mathematics, and computing, the curriculum has continually evolved in directions that exploit advances in technology. The curriculum introduces the methods of engineering design in the first year and continues to emphasize them throughout the curriculum in both traditional and open-ended project-oriented courses. The basic undergraduate degree program leads to a B.S. in Civil Engineering. Students with a specific interest in Environmental Engineering are advised to complete thesis /project /intern in Environmental Engineering and Sustainability.

In addition to providing a solid technical foundation, the program emphasizes the development of professional skills. We incorporate design and team experiences at regular intervals in the curriculum, and provide appropriate hands on experience in laboratory courses and projects. Students also get multiple opportunities to practice and improve their communication skills through written and oral reports.
