MS Civil Engineering

Objectives

Higher education (Postgraduate Degree) in Civil Engineering is paramount to opening doors that are not otherwise accessible. These opportunities include research positions at corporation’s levels. A career at this level enables to achieve satisfaction through exploration of one’s own ideas and skills. Postgraduate degree in civil engineering allows civil engineers to expand their knowledge towards problem solving, accepting new challenges and playing due role in the development of humanity.

Realizing the importance of postgraduate studies, coping up with new challenges of modern construction trends and the need for continuing education in the current environment, Iqra National University launched MS Program in civil engineering (Engineering Management, Structures and Transportation Engineering) capitalizing upon the already established state of the art infrastructure for undergraduates studies at its existing campus.
