Civil Engineering is one of the most versatile branches of Engineering in this 21st century. Civil Engineering covers a diverse range of engineering fields with five major areas of discipline: structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering and water resource engineering. Examples of more specialized areas of work are concrete technology, accident research, earthquake engineering, water and flood management, construction engineering, hydraulic engineering, river engineering and road network design.

The B.Sc in CE program initially exposes students to a wide range of topics covering the fundamentals. Advanced courses and electives provide more specialized knowledge and emphasized applications. Many courses include experimental lab sections to give students hands-on experience with current engineering and measurement equipment. Throughout the program, several courses are devoted to design in civil engineering. Students apply engineering principles to challenging design projects. Working in groups and individually, students develop communication skills through oral and written presentations.

The benefits - on leaving the course - you will have:

An ability to apply knowledge of math, engineering, and science

An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning

Career opportunities

After attaining the required educational qualification to become a civil engineer, there are a number of profiles that you can take up. Based on your choice and interest, you can select a job profile that comes under the umbrella of civil engineering. Since civil engineering is a broad field, you can explore the following job options.

Our students having passed out with their degrees may end up professionally with diverse career choices such as the following some just to name

Structural Engineer: Working closely with the construction industry, structural engineers play a key role in the development of new infrastructures. From buildings and bridges to dams and pipelines, engineers in this field are involved in all stages of a project’s life cycle, including preliminary design and final inspections.

Geotechnical Engineer: Engineers specializing in this field typically work on the design, analysis, and construction of retaining walls, tunnels, roadways, embankments, and building foundations. Much of a geotechnical engineer’s time is dedicated to writing reports that detail soil characteristics and requirements to support a building or development.

Environmental Engineer: Environmental engineers help solve environmental problems and challenges. These engineers apply biology and chemistry theory as well as soil science to the areas of waste disposal, pollution control, recycling, and public health.

Water Resource Engineer: Water resource engineers focus on the development and maintenance of water resource management facilities that include wastewater treatment plants, drainage canals, irrigation systems, and hydraulic structures such as reservoirs, dams, and floodways.

Transportation Engineer: Do you think public transportation just happens? All those subways, trams, roads, highways, and such don’t just spring from nowhere: top transportation engineers are there, taking care of us to get home on time or not wait in the rain for your bus, like the most tragic figure from literature.

Construction Manager: Construction managers are the bosses of the working sites. With knowledge on the most basic things, like weather, costs, team and time management, managers have to be the eyes and ears of the person who hired them, and have to see that everything works smoothly.

Public Health Engineer: Do you remember that scene in Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’, where there are penguins living in the sewer and even an evil lair? Technically, as a public health engineer, you will be responsible for that never to happen! Controlling the water supply and sewage system, you take care of people in towns and villages, making sure the water is clean and villain-free.

If you have a real passion for turning yourself into a well-rounded English graduate with a strong expertise on the English language, literature, linguistics, and ELT, our BA-in-ELL program is just the right choice for you. Make haste, apply right today for our next intake.

Message from the program head

Department of English Language and Literature (ELL) under the School of Arts and Social Sciences is as old as UCTC itself is. It offers a high quality undergraduate degree in English with at least three areas of concentration - English language, literature, and English Language Teaching (ELT). Albeit quite young, ELL Department is proud to be rather an atypical English department in and beyond Chittagong in terms of its novel curriculum, and its superb faculty members, of course. Our focus is not simply on literature studies which classically offer a critical and analytical look at the world in literature.

Unlike all other English departments across the country, ELL Department at UCTC has made a striking combination of a good number of English language modules in conjunction with a variety of literature courses. Often Our ELL studies start with the English language modules which provide a real, thorough support for the freshers and sophomores so as to develop an advanced level of English language skills i.e. listening, speaking, reading and writing which our students can best utilize in their simultaneous studies of other modules, and which they can use in English language-based communication in all kinds of forms and contexts beyond in and university life.

In addition, the strength of our ELL studies lies in its inclusion of ELT and applied linguistics modules which equip students with a qualification connecting English language teaching as a profession. Further more our ELL Department boasts of its outstanding teaching staff. Having obtained their masters and PhDs from renowned foreign universities especially from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore and India, all the faculty members are devoted to both the teaching and research activities on various domains of English literature and language, and ELT. Precisely, ELL Department with a good mix of innovative modules covering language, literature, ELT and applied linguistics taught by the faculty members with unparalleled expertise, will help students choose their path that leads to a holistic understanding of a truly ideal English discipline.
