Civil Engineering involves the knowledge and skills directed towards the construction of statics structures for the use and convenience of man. These structures include; Bridge, Canals, Road, Aqueducts, Docks, drainages etc.
Employment opportunities are available to graduates from Civil Engineering Department in government establishments, building and Construction Industries, Water Corporations, Ports and River Basin Authorities, Foundation Engineering Companies, Transportation Industries, Universities and Polytechnics, Research Organizations and Engineering Consulting Firms.
The Philosophy of the Department of Civil Engineering aims at the development of technical manpower at the all levels for the sustainable economic growth of the nation and for society and humanity. Civil Engineering consists of the following major areas: (a) Structural Engineering (b) Water Resources and Environmental Engineering (c) Geotechnical Engineering (d) Highway and Transportation Engineering (e) Geodetics Engineering.
The main objectives of the Undergraduate Degree Programme in civil Engineering are as follows:
Training of engineers who will meet the commercial, industrial, education 1, technological and research needs in Nigeria.
Production of technocrats to keep up with rapid pace of change in the nation and demand for basic civil infrastructures in Nigeria
Facilitating the training of engineers to provide the technical support base for rapidly growing and burgeoning population of students.
Providing the country with engineer to design, produce, maintain and service civil engineering artifacts and systems
A project work is requirement for final year by each student. The project should normally be relevant to the technological, social and other needs of the country.
The programme is designed such that the philosophy and its objectives take cognizance of and be in harmony with the following:
The general philosophy and principles establishing the Faculty of Engineering, UNIBEN
The philosophy and objectives of the National University Commission (NUC)” Minimum Standard” of the July 1989 and modified in 2004 pertaining to Engineering and Technology.
The Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) requisites for the Programme.
Other regulatory bodies’ requirements such As the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE).
Nigeria’s National Policy on Education as well as those Philosophies and Objectives intrinsic and unique to achieving high academic and professional development in Civil and Environmental Engineering in Nigeria.
