Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with design, construction and maintenance of physical and naturally built environment, including but not limited to, construction of airports, buildings, bridges, canals, roads, railways, tunnels, water supply, water distribution, water resources management and sewerage & sewage treatment.
We at INU, focus on interaction between the built environment and the natural world and recognize that civil engineering is crucial to meet the major challenges faced by our society; including climate change, economy recovery, growing population and urbanization, conservation of natural resources, development of renewable energy, suitable transport, environmental quality and infrastructure ageing and resilience.
Civil Engineering Department (CED) was established in 2010-11. The ever evolving UG (Under-Graduate) program of CED aims towards ingraining leadership skills, a strong sense of professionalism and ethical responsibilities in the future engineers and prepare them to engage in lifelong eruditeness. CED is affiliated with the prestigious Pakistan Engineering Council.
The civil engineering department will excel in undergraduate and graduate instruction in conformity with HEC & PEC, in training, research & design in all sub-areas of civil engineering, and in service to the public, consistent with the mission of the university. Advancing the mechanics of civil and structural engineering systems within the broader context of the design, construction and operation of sustainable infrastructure and the geology of earth’s resources and environment”.
The mission of civil engineering department is to educate, inside and outside the classroom & to provide service to the university, engineering profession, and the public. To offer undergraduate & postgraduate degree programs in the breadth width and depth areas of infrastructure and construction engineering proficiencies. A stringent grounding in fundamentals using mathematics and engineering principles as a tool to support understanding and develop new concepts, employing fundamental mechanics, incorporating uncertainty, and channelizing the conflicting objectives inherent in successful civil engineering research & design.
