Bachelor of Civil Engineering (CE)


Mission

The mission of the Civil Engineering program is to offer the strong academic program needed to produce well-educated students who can become productive members of the Civil Engineering profession. This mission is consistent with the academic component of the University's mission, which is in part to provide a strong academic program in engineering.”

Objectives

“The Objective of the undergraduate Civil Engineering program is to instill in IIUC graduates the knowledge, skills, attitude, and ethical values necessary to be successful practitioners who are able to impart positive social impacts at the state, regional, national, and international levels. Additionally, IIUC seek to provide the necessary academic background for Civil Engineering graduates pursuing advanced degrees.”

The Program Educational Objectives (PEO)

The CE Program Educational Objectives, which describe the professional accomplishments that graduates should achieve in various stages of professional career, and their associated Program Outcomes are as follows:

PEO-1: Graduates should demonstrate the ability for early career professional growth based on their grasp of fundamental concepts in civil engineering. Within the first few years after graduation, CE graduates should be employed by an organization that serves the profession or enrolled in postgraduate studies. They should be participating in engineering practice based on their academic foundation.

PEO-1 is associated with following Program Outcomes:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of math, science, engineering.
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments and analyze data.
  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, political, environmental, social, ethical, health and , anufacturability, and sustainability.
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

PEO-2: Graduates should utilize knowledge and skills to participate in civil engineering design and/or management processes. About five years beyond graduation, CE graduates should be participating effectively in design processes and developing Civil Engineering solutions within a team setting. They are expected to be engaged in management and leadership roles for Civil Engineering projects and to assume positions of greater responsibility to the profession and public.

PEO-2 is associated with following Program Outcomes:

  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, political, environmental, social, ethical, health and, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  • an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • an ability to professional and ethical responsibility
  • an ability to Communicate effectively
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues.

Semester Period Application Period Admission Test
Spring March – August November - December January - February
Autumn September – February May - June July - August

Duration

To complete the B. Sc. Engineering in Civil Engineering program at the International Islamic University Chittagong, normally takes four academic years (i.e. 8 Semesters). Each academic year is divided into 2 Semesters (Spring Semester: February – July and Autumn Semester: August – January), each having a duration of 15 weeks (5×15=75 working days). There shall be a Mid-term Examination after conducting 6 weeks classes. 9 Weeks of classes will be conducted after Mid-term examination and after that Final Examination will take place at the end of each semester. In order to graduate, total 163 credit hours has to be undertaken and completed by a student during 8 semesters. By registering more number of courses in regular semesters, students may also complete their graduation studies within at least three academic years (i.e. 6 Semesters) of regular studentship. However a student may be allowed to complete their graduation studies in the University within maximum of six academic years (i.e.12 semesters).

Grading System

The Grading System for assessing the performance of the students shall be as follows:

Marks (%) Letter Grade Grade Point Remarks
80-100 A + 4.00 Excellent
75–79 A 3.75 Very Good
70–74 A- 3.50
65–69 B+ 3.25 Good
60–64 B 3.00
55–59 B- 2.75 Satisfactory
50–54 C+ 2.50
45–49 C 2.25 Pass
40–44 D 2.00
00–39 F 0.00 Fail

Calculation of GPA and CGPA

GPA: Grade Point Average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total grade point earned by the number of credit hours attempted in a particular semester.

CGPA: Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is computed by dividing the total grade point earned by the total number of credit hours attempted at the diploma courses up to that point of time.

Achieving minimum GPA in each semester

A student shall have to obtain minimum GPA 2.00 in each semester.

Achieving minimum GPA in for awarding degree

A student shall have to obtain minimum CGPA 2.50 for awarding degree.
