Our 138-credit Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering program is accredited by both National Authority for Qualification and Quality assurance of Education and training (NAQQAET) and Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology (ABET ) in The United states.

The civil engineering program is designed to provide the students strong engineering science background that will enable them to deal with technical problems that might be faced during their professional civil engineering career. Each student carries out prior to his/her graduation a Senior Project. This study in values design of a real-life Civil Engineering Projects which facilities their adaption to practice as they join construction industry. During this period they are also obliged to search and collect information related to their senior project topic. This course how to collect information related with a topic that they do not have any knowledge previously

Our program and approach have proved to be successful as our graduates hold directorial positions in Ministries, project managers in private construction companies and owner of successful construction companies. Furthermore, it is worthwhile to mention that two of our graduates from The Civil Engineering Department held Ministerial positions in The Government of Kingdom of Bahrain in recent years.
