BE Civil
BE Civil

Bachelor of Civil Engineering (BE Civil) focuses on professional engineering that deals with the planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining of the physical infrastructure built in the natural environment. The  programme deals with the construction of public works or private projects like all sorts of roads, bridges, tunnels, channels, canals, helipads, airports, dams, buildings, parks or sports complexes. Civil engineering is all about helping people and shaping the world. Clearly, it will continue to play a key role, particularly in the reconstruction of post-quake Nepal.

Key Learning Outcomes

• Acquire a knowledge of scientific principles & materials in  construction engineering and the building sector

• Enable graduates to make objective, technical, and thrifty  decisions in the broad field of civil engineering

• Excel in solving problems in teams or independently through  skills nurtured by training such as project work or internships

• Engage in lifelong learning & application in areas related to  structural, transportation, geo-technical or environmental  engineering

• Get the qualifications and confidence to become practising engineers or community leaders in the emerging fields of Civil Engineering

Career Prospects

There are many job opportunities in the public sector, with local authorities, in government departments and environmental organizations for Civil Engineers.

BE Civil Engineering graduates have fine career prospects in infrastructure construction  buildings, transport, and communications. This includes bridges, roads, tunnels, dams, and canals. They get work of  national or local importance in producing, storing, and  distributing electricity, gas, and water.

Civil engineers get worthwhile employment with  varied contractors and consultancies and also work for diverse national and multinational organizations.
