Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering (BECE)

A modern nation and civilization is built by Civil Engineers. To make Pakistan amongst the world's most modern countries in infrastructure and urbanely developed country, Abasyn University launched the program of Bachelors in Civil Engineering. The Department is offering Bachelors and Master’s program duly accredited by PEC and HEC. With the implantation of Outcome Based Education the Department of Civil Engineering with its mission and vision is developing competent graduates with Professional Graduate Attributes which are needed by the industry and the workplace from the graduates so that the graduate offers quality services in construction and research activities. Department of Civil Engineering has competent and experienced faculty which are working hard to develop quality graduates who can compete in the market with other graduates and can polish their skills in leadership quality and enterprenual area of construction business.

Program Mission

"Provide quality education in civil engineering fundamentals, application, and skills that prepare competent graduates who pursue professional excellence with responsibility and effective societal contribution".

Eligibility Criteria

  1. PEC requires a student to be eligible for admission must have scored at least 60% marks in FSc. (Pre-Engineering)/Equivalent Qualification.
  2. Candidates with DAE will also be offered admission provided they have obtained an aggregate of 60% in the program and a total number of students will be admitted in this category strictly according to the PEC specified quota.
  1. All candidates for undergraduate programs who are eligible for admission will be required to appear in the entry test arranged by ETEA.

Basis for open merit determination are as under:

Matric: 10%

Intermediate: 50%

Entry test, ETEA: 40%

Program Objectives

The abilities and competencies which are expected of the graduates and which have to be demonstrated within four years after graduation are Program Educational Objectives (PEOs). The mission of the program and its derivation depending upon the involvement of all stakeholders and their alignment with university and institute missions are the PEOs. The PEOs are articulated in view of the desirable competencies of our graduates. The university’s mission and vision statement is harmonized and reviewed and then the PEOs are finalized accordingly with the involvement of PIAC initially and are subsequently approved through the relevant academic bodies. The approved PEOs state:

The graduates of BECE program are expected to:

PEO 1. Demonstrate competence in civil engineering profession by applying in-depth knowledge and technical skills with global, societal and sustainable perspectives.

PEO 2. Practice civil engineering profession with integrity and commitment to social and moral responsibilities.

PEO 3. Demonstrate interpersonal and management skills in the workplace.

PEO 4. Demonstrate engagement in enhancing professional skills and exhibit quest for professional development.

The PEOs are publicized and available on CED website, corridors and notice boards.
