1. Name of the Program: Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (B.Sc in CE)

2. Name of the Department: Department of Civil Engineering

3. Objectives and Goal
The increasing needs for Civil engineers in worldwide job markets need not to be overemphasized. To keep pace with the advancement in Civil engineering and provide emphasis in fulfilling the needs, it is essential that efforts are made both in the public and private sectors to develop human resources in this particular field in Bangladesh.

A student in CE must not only have a sound basis in the fundamental of Engineering but also should be aware of socio-economic problems of the country. Therefore, courses in science, humanities, economics and management are also included in the curricula. The last two semesters will offer the students a number of alternatives to choose from and to specialize in a particular field. Theory and sessional work shall be supplemented by Project/Thesis work, seminars and visits to relevant research and construction projects.

4. Semesters
There will be three semesters in an academic year, which are namely:

Each semester will be of 17 weeks duration with 12 weeks for class teaching, 1 (One) week break for examination preparation; 3 (three) weeks for examinations and the remaining one week will cover government and other holidays.

5. Duration of the Program:
The duration for B.Sc. in Civil Engineering program will be four years divided into 12 semesters.

6. Credit-hour
For one credit hour of theory course there will be a 50 minutes lecture class. For 1.5 credits of a Sessional / Lab course there will be three lecture hours or demonstration class of 150 minutes/week.

7. Degree Requirements
a) Completion of minimum 165 credit hours.
(b) Passing of all courses individually and maintaining a minimum CGPA of 2.50.

8. Admission
Eligibility of Students for Admission in EUB:
The students must fulfill the following requirements: a. Bangladeshi Students
Applicants must have passed SSC and HSC (or equivalent) examination in Science group with minimum 2nd division in both the examinations or five subjects in O-level and three major subjects (Math, Physics and Chemistry) in A-level education are required. The students who have completed SSC and HSC under GPA system will have to have a minimum CGPA of 2.5. The O and A-level students must have an average grade of B. Those having Diploma engineering in Civil are also eligible for admission with waivers in some courses as per decision of the departmental equivalence committee. But the total exempted credits will not be more than 19 credits normally. b. For Foreign Students

(1) Educational qualifications like Bangladeshi students/equivalent.
(2) Sex category: Male or female.
(3) Must have security clearance from respective Embassy/ High Commission in Bangladesh. 8.1 Admission Procedure
Admission test will be conducted on the basis of the syllabus of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English (comprehension and functional) subjects of HSC examinations of all boards of secondary and higher secondary school certificates. Admission test will be conducted out of 300 marks and the distribution of marks is given below: Duration of examination will be of 3 hours.


8.2 Final Selection
Students will be selected on the basis of results of the admission test.

9. Grading System
Letter grading will be made to assess students’ performance. The grade will be assigned on the overall evaluation of a student’s performance on the basis of semester final examination, midterm exam. case studies, tutorial test, term papers, assignment and class attendance in aggregate and whatever is applicable for an individual program. The teachers responsible for the course will determine Grades/GPA. The final result will be prepared by cumulating the grade point average over the courses. The UGC approved common grading system is adopted for assigning a letter grade and grade point. This is given in the following table:

Numerical Grade
Letter Grade
Grade Point
80% and above
A +
75% to less than 80%
70% to less than 75%
65% to less than 70%
60% to less than 65%
55% to less than 60%
50% to less than 55%
45% to less than 50%
40% to less than 45%
Less than 40%
F *Failure; I ** Incomplete; W ***Withdrawal; R****Repeat; Y***** Audit

10. Marking System in the Individual Courses
Theory Courses:

Continuous Assessment (Attendance, Quizzes, Assignment, Class tests, etc)
Midterm examination ( 1 hour duration)
Final Examination ( 3 hour duration)

Sessional and Lab Courses :
The assessment in sessional/field work courses is made by observing the student in the respective lab classes and also by taking viva-voce, written Tests and practical tests. Distribution of Marks
Twenty percent (20%) of marks of a theoretical course shall be allotted for continuous assessment, i.e. attendance quizzes, home assignments, class tests and class participation. The rest of the marks will be allotted to Midterm and Term Final examinations. Distribution of marks for a given course is as follows:

Attendance and Observation
Homework, assignment/quizzes
Mid-term Examination ( 1 hr. duration)
Final Examination ( 3 hrs. duration)

Basis for awarding marks for class attendance and observation will be as follows:

Class attendance and Class Observation
90% and above
85% to less than 90%
80% to less than 85%
75% to less than 80%
70% to less than 75%
65% to less than 70%
60% to less than 65%
Below 60%


Course Designation and Numbering System:
The undergraduate students of different years of the Department of Civil Engineering have to follow the course schedule given below.

Course Types
The courses included in the undergraduate curricula are divided into the following groups:

a). Compulsory Courses
In CE discipline, a number of courses are identified as core courses, which form the nucleus of the respective bachelor’s degree program. A student has to complete the entire designated core courses of his/her discipline.
b). Prerequisite Courses
Some of the core courses are identified as prerequisite courses for a specific subject. A prerequisite course is one, which is required to be taken before some other course(s) can be taken. F grades in the earlier courses will fulfill the prerequisite requirements of those courses.
c). Elective Courses
Apart from the core courses, the students can choose from a set of elective courses. Elective courses are divided into Structural Engineering; Environment Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Water Resources Engineering groups. A student is to choose courses of any two groups for fulfilling the total course requirements.

11.2 Credits Assignment
The assignment of credits to theoretical course is different from that of laboratory course, which is stated as follows:

a). For theoretical courses one lecture per week per term is equivalent to one credit.
b). For laboratory courses two class hours per week per term is equivalent to one credit.
c). Credits are also assigned to Project and Thesis work taken by the students. The amount of credits assigned to such work is 4.5.
