Civil Engineering Department

Welcome Speech

The Civil Engineering department is one of the main three engineering departments established earlier in 2012 at the starting of Komar University of Science and Technology (KUST). The civil engineering adapting undergraduate program according to the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) which accreditation means that the program meets certain, defined international standards or criteria to ensure the quality of education and training provided to the students in the program. The civil engineering department has dedicated full time and also adjunct faculty members. Most faculty members of the department have earned their Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering from leading and well known national and international academic institutions and universities. The qualifications of the faculty members reflect the diversity of experiences and academic backgrounds of the faculty in the CVE department. The faculty members majors cover several areas of specialization that include structural engineering, concrete technology, surveying, highway, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, construction management, water resources, and environmental engineering. Since 2012, every year CVE department welcomes a number of student from the whole cities in Iraq and Kurdistan.
