Welcome Message from Chairman

 

Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering which is one of the major and active engineering departments at Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU). We offer BS, MS, and PhD in Civil Engineering. The Civil Engineering department was founded more than 40 years ago and produced more than 2500 high-quality graduates to the national and international construction industries. Our graduates have a wide variety of employment opportunities in both the private and the public sectors. They work in diverse fields of civil engineering in different places around the world.

As a matter of fact, civil engineers play a key role in the development of nations. This is a profession, in which, one designs, constructs, operates, and maintains the basic systems that make our life simple and sustainable. These systems and the natural environment are in constant interaction, which frequently causes social, economic, legal, and environmental issues.

Civil engineering programs are intended to satisfy the needs of society from technical points of view. The rapid introduction of modern materials, measurement techniques, construction methods, and management tools require properly trained civil engineers. Our program objectives are continuously updated keeping in view these factors. The undergraduate program of civil engineering at EMU is designed to develop knowledgeable and creative engineers with strong capabilities for innovation and management. The Civil Engineering Department was accredited by ABET in 2010. The well-equipped and sophisticated extensive teaching and research laboratories play a major role in the professional and practical development of our students.

Civil Engineering Department has qualified and experienced full-time faculty members comprising 5 professors, 8 associate professors, 2 assistant professors, and 7 part-time lecturers. In addition, we have 15 research assistants. All of the faculty members have national and international reputations. We also provide consultancy services to the local community and industry. In this way, the Civil Engineering Department contributes to the economic, social, and cultural development of the nation.

This web page is prepared to open a window to introduce our department to our students and their parents, as well as prospective students who might be interested in joining our department in the future. Our graduates are also welcome for obtaining any information which might be of help in reminding the times they spent here at EMU.
