The Department operates a five-year degree programme. The course units are organized on the course credit system per semester. The curriculum is design in such a way as to give a sound basis in Mathematics, Engineering Science and design. The first two years of the programme are considered foundation years while the last three years are professional years during which the creative designs, construction techniques and research peculiar to the course are emphasized particularly at the final year. From the year 1988 to date, the Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.) programme was reviewed a number of times in order to make the graduands face current local and global challenges of construction industry and research. In the year 1988, the semester system was introduced by the University in order to improve the quality of teaching and research in the programme. Recently the programme was reviewed with the introduction of some new courses. These are:
Civil Engineering Contract Management.
Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
Business Creation and Growth.
