Civil Engineering Students

I welcome you to the Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Benin, Nigeria.
The Department was established in 1975 with the aim of developing technical manpower for the sustainable economic growth of the nation and humanity. We have consistently maintained a high standard of education through outstanding teaching and innovative research. The provision of a conducive learning environment to promote problem solving skills, team work, and good communication and leadership skills is of utmost priority in the Department. Our staff are capable and dedicated towards achieving the aforementioned objectives.
The Department offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Highway and Transportation Engineering, Water Resources and Environmental Engineering and Construction Management.
Graduates from the Department are gainfully employed in Government Establishments, Building and Construction Industries, Water corporations, Ports andRiver Basin Authorities, Oil companies, Research organizations, Telecommunication and Marine companies. This development is not unconnected with the fact that all our teaching staff and technologists are members of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) and other international professional bodies. In addition, the Department is fully accredited by the National University Commission (NUC) and the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN). In order to maintain its leading role in the production of sound and quality graduates in the South of the Sahara Africa, the school authority graciously upgraded the Department’s ultra-modern laboratory.
Thank you and welcome.
Sincerely,
