The Department of Civil Engineering was established in 1995. The total enrolment in the 4-year B.Sc. program is currently over 1000. A class size of about 50 students is maintained for effective teaching.
The Department of Civil Engineering has established eight (8) laboratories with sophisticated equipment on the university campus.
The main aim and objective of this department is to offer program covering all important branches and disciplines of Civil Engineering. The department covers a wide range of course curriculum and well-equipped laboratory facilities. The B.Sc. degree offered by the Department of Civil Engineering at AUST has been officially recognized by the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) and has been accredited by Board of Accreditation for Engineering and Technical Education (BAETE), Bangladesh. A number of graduates of this department are pursuing higher studies in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) as well as in different countries of the world. Some of them are working in the reputed consulting and construction firms of the country. Several graduates have already got Ph.D. and M. Sc. degrees from universities of different countries and are working abroad.
The department is actively involved in the activities of the national and international engineering professional bodies. Apart from the academic programs, the department organizes the comprehensive training on computer aided design, drawing and project management through Centre for Extension Service of the university. Moreover, the department is planning to offer materials testing and consulting services by using its laboratories equipped with highly sophisticated and modern equipment and highly qualified and experienced faculty members. The department arranges field visit, study tour, seminars, and programs on extracurricular activities.
