Department of Civil Engineering

Innovate. Achieve. Lead


BITS Pilani-Dubai Campus introduced B.E. Civil Engineering programme from the academic year 2016-17 to cater to the growing demands for Civil Engineers in Dubai. Civil Engineering is instrumental in the country’s infrastructure as it deals with planning, design, construction and maintenance of the built environment that improves mobility and convenience for the society. Civil engineers bear an important responsibility as they work to protect society from natural catastrophes and help manage our water and energy resources. While the traditional side of Civil Engineering education focuses on buildings, bridges, foundations, roads, railways, airports, energy and industrial facilities there is now a growing need to branch into other areas of critical importance to society like environmental engineering, construction management, transportation logistics, sustainable development, smart cities, infrastructure management and disaster recovery.

The department offers first-degree programme with modular academic structure and flexibilities like electives, hands-on projects, practice school, thesis, etc. Students gain knowledge and develop skills of engineering design, planning, execution and management through specialized course work in structures, water resources, transportation, construction materials, construction management, geotechnical and environmental engineering under the guidance of experienced faculty. Practice school is a unique component of BITS Pilani programme wherein students are exposed to the professional world through industry internship for seven and half months and get hands-on experience in solving real-life problems. Civil Engineering graduates are highly sought after by design firms, engineering consultants, materials manufacturers and government agencies, in addition to contracting and construction companies. Graduates will have an option to work as design engineers, structural engineers, town planners, transport planners, environmental consultants, construction managers and so on. The field remains very popular with several industries, not only in construction but also with government agencies such as Roads and Transport Authorities, Electricity and Water Authorities and Real Estate Development Authorities.
