Department of Civil Engineering

Mr. Eric Awere Head of Department

The aim of the Department is to equip student with scientific and engineering skills in Civil Engineering to enable them fit well into middle-level and higher-level management positions in the civil engineering and construction sector.

NEW PROGRAMMES

The Department of Civil Engineering has developed curricula for a two-year top-up programme for HND graduates and a four-year programme for Technical and Senior High Schools graduates to read Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Civil Engineering.

In addition, the Department, in collaboration with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, has developed a curriculum for a Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Civil Engineering for accreditation.

LABORATORIES

The Department has the following four (4) laboratories with calibrated and certified equipment which are used for students’ practical training:

        • Materials Laboratory
        • Soil / Geotechnical Laboratory
        • Environment / Water Quality Laboratory.
        • Fluid Mechanics/Hydraulics laboratory

The Materials and Geotechnical Laboratories are opened to the general public to generate funds for the University.

CONSULTANCY SERVICES  

The Department of Civil Engineering, in collaboration with Department of Building Technology, offers consultancy services to the University Community and the general public in the areas of Soil and Concrete Testing, Architectural and Structural Designs and Supervision of Construction Works.  Plans are under-way to register a consortium for that purpose.
