Welcome to the website of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The Department was established in 2011 along with other departments in the College of Engineering and Technology, The first set of its undergraduate students for the Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) programme were drawn from College of Pure and Applied Sciences in 2011. Since then the Department has progressed tremendously and a lot has been achieved so far, but we will strive for more in future, for the benefit of the country and society.

I invite you to look at what we have in the Department as we are preparing our graduates to become world-class leaders and problem solvers, capable of addressing society’s ongoing needs for infrastructure, both public and private, in an African context.

Civil Engineering is the heart of development. The curriculum is based on competence rather than content. Content or courses may then be overlaid into this framework. Instructors are then free to design their courses to meet the required competency levels. Metrics may be developed to assess student satisfaction and competency goals. The areas of competence are: water resource engineering; environmental engineering; structural engineering; materials science and engineering; geotechnical engineering; traffic safety, highway transportation and urban planning; architecture; business and finance; design and project management, rural engineering and computer science.

Furthermore, we plan to focus our research on community development for the benefit of humankind through the following missions:

  • Continuously conduct basic and applied researches relating to our areas of competence in Nigeria and the regional countries as listed above.
  • Transform the problems into research questions and develop the research outcomes into policies, programs and countermeasures.
  • Disseminate and share the research outcomes with the community around the world.

We also welcome contribution in ideas or other forms that may help us to provide better service to our stakeholders as we prepare to collaborate with other researchers in the University from various disciplines such as materials, mechanical engineering, social science, epidemiology, medical, economics, statistics computer and communication.

With best wishes,

Dr. Biliyamin Adeoye Ibitoye
