Civil engineering department at Tishk International University is composed of Construction Materials, Structural, Geotechnical, Hydraulic, Transportation and Construction management engineering major fields. Our curriculum regularly revised and updated according to the regional and global market needs. Civil engineering students are also equipped well with theoretical and practical knowledge to pursue academic career through graduate programs in civil engineering. The Civil Engineering at Tishk International currently offers a four-year, B.Eng. undergraduate degree program. Students learn the fundamentals of structure, civil engineering materials, hydraulic, transportation, geotechnical and construction management. For next coming academic sessions the department shall get ready to deliver M.Sc. degree education. Civil engineering Department set upped laboratory for each major fields that well equipped with up to date devices and instruments. So that students can learn the practical session parallel to the theoretical session.  Because of that graduates of civil engineering are usually in high demand for employment in industry or any place where related to civil engineering. We are proud of our students, faculty, teaching assistants, and other supporting staff. We are also proud that the Civil Engineering Program is accredited by the Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency ((ZEvA, Hannover), which is a member of European Association For Quality Assurance In Higher Education (ENQA) and Registered in European Quality Assurance Register For Higher Education (EQAR), . The ZEvA Commission for International Affairs (KIA) is solely entrusted with evaluating the quality of teaching and learning at universities outside Germany based on the reference framework of the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ESG). Accreditation makes certain that the students, parents, employers, and the society we serve can be confident that a program meets the quality standards that generate graduates prepared to get in global market.
