Outcome Based Education(OBE) Modal in Civil Engineering

To enhance the quality of education and learning process, Civil Engineering Department of CUSIT has adopted OBE (Outcome Based Education) model of Washington Accord, USA. Student's assessment is based on the achievement of specified goals (outcomes).This model focuses on the outcomes of learning, rather than traditional teaching system.


Vision and Mission Statement

The Vision of the department is to provide State-of-the-Art education in Civil Engineering that enables new generation of Civil Engineers to meet the challenges of the future, promote a sense of scholarship, leadership and service to the mankind through creativity and innovations. The Mission of the CE department can be summarized us


Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The graduates of Civil Engineering Program after4-5 years of graduation will:
