The Construction Engineering program provides graduates with the skills to design components of construction engineering to achieve desired goals. Graduates are expected to think creatively, gather information, and devise practical solutions to design problems they face. The aim of the program is for graduates to be able to work effectively individually, as well as in multidisciplinary teams with the ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing. Graduates may also develop their knowledge of important current technologies in construction engineering. The student is expected to gain proficiency in the use of modern engineering techniques and tools, with an emphasis on the role of computers and information technology in engineering. The program provides graduates with a broad education in construction engineering as well as other technical and non-technical disciplines that serve the specialization. By the end of the program, the graduate will have the ability to understand the impact of construction engineering and technology on society in a global and social context, including various environmental issues. The student will also develop an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.
The Department of Construction Engineering aspires to occupy a recognized leading position at the local, regional and international levels, and to provide an effective and renewable educational program that keeps pace with the requirements of the labor market.
The construction engineering program is committed to graduating distinguished engineers qualified to meet the needs of the labor market. It also aims to develop the capabilities of faculty members and their assistants and provide applied research to serve community institutions.
