Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) requires interdisciplinary knowledge, multiple sets of skills, and a decision-making process in a rapidly globalizing and technocentric environment. In the department of civil and environmental engineering, we believe the fact that undergraduate education prepares students to become productive professionals in the engineering field with a unique combination of professionalism and creativity, as well as their right to self-development and potential realization.
The B.Sc. in CEE program aims to produce qualified graduates who will have the knowledge and skills necessary to serve the needs of design and site engineers in public and private construction sectors. After completing CEE program, our graduates will be able to apply for the membership of the Bahrain Society of Engineers and highly qualified to join postgraduates’ study in relevant field of the program.
The CEE Program is designed in alignment with international accreditation standards ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) to enable our graduates to stand and succeed in the global engineering marketplace.
In the first three years of the program, our pedagogical approach integrates the university required courses, basic science courses, design courses, communication and computer skills courses, technical and professional courses, and environmental science courses. In the fourth year, students will have the option to choose one of four professional study tracks. Moreover, the program also creates an opportunity to engage in a 300-hour industrial internship and expose our students to career opportunities in the future.
To support a student’s plan for his/her undergraduate career, we have combined the core and electives into four tracks. Our dynamic CEE Program allows our students to select one of the following tracks to plan a variety of possible subject combinations to tailor their individual education:
- Track 1: Structures
- Track 2: Water Resources and Environmental Management
- Track 3: Transportation and Remote Sensing
- Track 4: Construction Engineering and Management
The program of Bachelor in Civil & Environmental Engineering program aims to produce graduates who will have the knowledge and skills necessary to serve the needs of design and construction of different buildings, structures, and infrastructures as well as study their impact on the environment.
The aims of the programme are designed to:
- Provide students with knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles and technologies that underpin the different disciplines of Civil Engineering.
- Spread the awareness of the importance of protecting and creating a pollution-free environment.
- Explain the social, economic, financial, and environmental issues affecting civil engineering projects locally, regionally, and globally.
- Prepare an innovative, imaginative, reflective, versatile, confident, and inquisitive engineer, with a mastery over written, verbal, and visual communications.
- Establish a foundation for leadership qualities and awareness of social, ethical, and legal responsibilities, and health and safety issues.
- Have an appropriate educational base and ethos for pursuing professional membership and to remain committed to Continuing Professional Development and lifelong learning.
Knowledge and Understanding Skills
- Identify the concepts, theories and principles applied in civil engineering, including structural, environmental, transportation, geotechnical, materials, water resources; construction management and operations.
- Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- Describe the impact of environmental factors affecting construction process, including, legal, social, economic, health and safety, cultural, technological, physical, and global factors.
- Recognize advantages and disadvantages of different environmental systems and methods related to sustainability of engineering projects.
- Explain the codes, professional practices and ethics, statutory regulations and laws governing engineering projects and their influence on the society and the stakeholders.
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- Apply design criteria of civil engineering to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of the public.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- Prepare, read, analyze and interpret drawings and technical documents related to engineering projects considering professional ethics, codes and regulations.
- Use state of the art digital engineering resources such as manuals, software and applications.
- Select design systems and methods appropriate to specific technical, environmental, economic and social conditions.
- Acquire, retrieve and evaluate resources, evidences and precedents relating to functional, environmental, technological, economical, professional and design, and apply sound judgments in proposing alternative solutions.
- Identify potential risks and decisions needed for trade-offs among time, cost and quality according to specific project conditions.
General and Transferable Skills
- Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
- Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
- Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Our graduates will be eligible to work in the governmental and private sectors linked to the following pathways:
Graduates from the track of Structures, they have opportunity to works as structural design engineers at consultation offices, and/or construction site engineers at contraction and construction firms.
Graduates from the track of Water Resources and Environmental Management will be able to serve as expert the environmental sectors such as supreme council of environment, Electricity and Water Authority, environmental laboratories and/or industrial factories like ALBA.
Graduates from the track of Transportation and Remote Sensing will have the adequate skills to work as designers and site engineers for roads construction firms, urban planning and development authority, general directorate of traffics and/or Ministry of works.
Graduates from the track of Construction Engineering and Management will be skilled enough to work at many of construction and design firms and offices as site engineers and project managers.
They are prepared, trained, and encouraged to have the collaborative skills when working in a design and construction companies, to have the leadership skills when starting their own business or building their design freelance practice after gaining fieldwork experience. Postgraduate study is also an option for those who wish to continue their academic studies.
