Chairman's Message

On behalf of my faculty, staff, alumina, undergraduate, and postgraduate students, I welcome you to the webpage of the Department of Civil Engineering Mehran University of Engineering and Technology.

Civil Engineering is the process of directing and controlling natural resources for the sustainable use and benefit of humankind through the construction of various structures. It applies engineering practices to the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of structures such as buildings, roads, bridges, railways, factories, airports, irrigation schemes, docks, harbors, dams, sea defenses, flood control systems, water supply, and sewerage disposal schemes, etc. Thus, civil engineering is probably the largest and broadest discipline of engineering. 

Faculty members of my department are highly competent and qualified with most of them having obtained their qualifications from technologically developed countries. Most of the faculty members possess vast teaching and field experience and are considered experts in their field of specialization. Different training workshops and seminars are also arranged for the faculty from time to time so that they remain exposed to modern trends in teaching and research methodology.

The department also offers training programs to the fresh graduates employed in various government organizations to further enhance their skills. We are constantly striving to improve our education and research programs and remain at the forefront of research and education in Civil Engineering.

For future undergrads selecting Civil Engineering comes with a wide range of career choices such as geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water/environmental engineering and constructional management. This degree prepares you not only with the theoretical but also with the fieldwork.

Spending a term abroad is also one of the options during the course. This is where most students are interested in as it gives them exposure to a completely new culture and a wide variety of new ideas.

The above are some of the reasons which make this program as one of the top choices of most of the students applying for admissions at the Mehran University of Engineering and Technology.

As you browse through the pages of this website, you will learn more about our most recent accomplishments.

I will be glad to answer any questions you might have.

Prof. Dr. Rizwan Ali Memon
