Welcome message from the chair
Civil engineering is one of the oldest professions in the world. It is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the man-made and naturally-built environment. Civil engineers are involved in planning, design, analysis and construction of buildings; transportation systems (highways, bridges, tunnels, airports and ports); water distribution and wastewater collection systems; environment management systems, and other related systems. The main objective of the Civil Engineering program is to provide the State of Qatar with highly qualified civil engineers to meet the needs of the local and regional market. The program also provides research and community service geared to the benefit of the local and regional societies in particular, and the entire global society at large.
In addition to the undergraduate program, which offers several areas of specialization, the department participates in the College of Engineering graduate program (master's degrees) through two tracks: construction management and environmental engineering. The department also offers masters and doctoral degrees in civil engineering.
