BSc in Civil Engineering
the millenniums, Civil Engineers have been responsible for building everything
from the Egyptian Great Pyramids, Roman aqueducts and India’s Taj Mahal. Many of these structures are still with us
today. More recently, they have been responsible
for building the Eiffel Tower, the Statute of Liberty, the Empire State
Building, and some of the tallest buildings in the world such as the Petronas Towers
in Malaysia and the
Khalifa in the UAE.
importantly, Civil Engineers are responsible for building homes for personal
living and offices for daily work, wastewater treatment plants for cleaning wastewater
and groundwater well systems for drinking water. They are also responsible for building
tunnels which are used as underground conveyances for transportation such as
the Channel Tunnel or Chunnel which connects England to France.
Engineering is a challenging, but rewarding profession which requires
well-educated, young men and women with many talents. Students
in the Civil Engineering program at the University of Kurdistan Hewler who
graduate can expect to have rewarding careers building structures (e.g.,
buildings and homes) and infrastructure (e.g., roads, bridges, tunnels, etc.) throughout
Kurdistan and the world.
program was established in 2015. In 2017, the Civil Engineering program was
updated and re-designed to make it more practical for our students in Kurdistan. The program consists a four-year curriculum plus
a foundation year to be complete by all students. Students study a broad range of topics in
civil engineering including structural, transportation, wastewater treatment
and tunnel engineering.
students are offered civil engineering core modules such as statics, dynamics,
mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, soil mechanics, rock mechanics, construction
materials, hydraulics, surveying, stress analysis, and structural analysis in
the first two years. In their last two
years, they will take modules in highway engineering, transportation
engineering, bridge design, environmental engineering, water distribution
system design, wastewater treatment plant design, geotechnical engineering,
foundation engineering, and tunnel engineering. The final year will be culminated
with a senior design project required for all graduating students
will be required to develop their oral and written communication skills. They will study professional ethics in the
field of Civil Engineering. Several modules require the completion of laboratory
assignments and field exercises.
BS Civil Engineering Program focuses on overall (professional and
interpersonal) development of the students in order to equip them to meet the
high standards of the industry. During students' stay at UKH, they will have
ample opportunities to gain practical work experience by applying for
competitive internships with local companies. Knowledge and experience gained
during these internships will greatly improve their employment opportunities
this program, the student's performance in each module is assessed in various
ways throughout the course of each semester. This continuous assessment
encourages students to maintain a useful level of effort throughout the
semester, rather than utilizing last minute, study efforts just before their
Secondary school certificate, attained within
the last five years and with a general high school score of 80% and above.
Minimum high school education score of 70% in
Mathematics and Physics.
School Entrance Test (Consists of questions
from Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics).
Minimum English Language requirement is 45 in
PTE, 5.5 in IELTS or 64 in ibt-TOEFL.
note that admissions to the BSc in Civil Engineering may require the
successful completion of a 1-year Civil Foundation Program. If students pass a UKH early admission,
qualifying examination, they may directly enter into the 4-year undergraduate,
civil engineering program.
Applicants dismissed for
any reason from any university, school or college will not be considered.
