This handbook provides you with helpful information about our programs and helps you successfully fulfill the requirements towards graduation. The presented information is useful for both current and future students. The Department of Civil Engineering offers two undergraduate programs: BS in Civil Engineering (B.S.CE) and BS in Applied Civil Engineering (B.S.ACE), in addition to the graduate programs of Master of Science (M.S.) in Civil Engineering, Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Civil Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Civil Engineering. The information on these graduate programs is published in the Graduate Handbook. It is advisable to check our web site http://www.kfupm.edu.sa/ce for updates to the information on undergraduate and graduate programs. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions related to this Undergraduate Handbook or more generally, the civil engineering programs, please feel free to contact me. Good luck in your studies. Dr. Husain Jubran Al-Gahtani Chairman, Department of Civil Engineering King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM) was established on 5 of Jumada I 1383H (September 23, 1963) as an undergraduate technical collage with the objective of supporting the petroleum and mineral industries. Today, the University is one of the leading technical educational institutions and is a renowned center of research in the Middle East. The University’s mission is to provide quality higher education, conduct advanced research, and disseminate technical knowledge needed by local industries; and through this process, KFUPM thus contributes to the economic development of Saudi Arabia. Located in Dhahran on the east coast of Saudi Arabia – at the top of Dammam geologic dome where oil was first discovered – KFUPM is a government institution operated by the Board of University. Like all other universities in the country, KFUPM is administratively placed under the Ministry of Higher Education. The Department The Department of Civil Engineering is one of one of the oldest departments offering a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, since the creation of the University in 1963. The department started offering the Master of Science (MS) program in Fall 1972-73, the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in Fall 1985-86 and lately the Master of Eng.(M.Eng.) program in Fall 12007-08.
What is Civil Engineering? Department Vision: Our Vision is to establish itself as a leading center of Civil Engineering education by supporting academic distinction and seeking excellence in teaching, learning, research and public services in partnership with the University. Civil engineering* is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. Civil engineering is the Department Mission: The Mission of the Department of Civil Engineering is to maintain a preeminent role in teaching and research by pursuing a policy of rapid adaptation to new knowledge, discoveries, technological advances and emerging economies and to serve the public through dissemination of knowledge and information. The Department seeks to provide an environment of better learning within which creative thinking, practical skills and self development are cultivated and sustained to produce qualified civil engineers who will challenge the present and enrich the future. Program Educational Objectives: 1. To produce high-quality graduates with a strong background in civil engineering fundamentals to compete in the job-market to secure a professional career. 2. To produce graduates to demonstrate in their profession the ability to apply the principles of mathematics, basic sciences and engineering in solving civil engineering problems. 3. To prepare graduates to deal responsibly with the ethical, professional and social responsibilities. 4. To prepare graduates to communicate effectively in professional dialogue, and to continue to develop professionally through lifelong learning. oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to federal levels, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies • Employment Opportunities: • As a civil Engineer, you generally would work in one of the following areas: • In Private Practice: • In Public Practice: • In Academia: Teaching students the fundamentals of civil engineering. Also involved in research in order to advance the state-of-the-art. • There are numerous opportunities for civil engineering graduates in both private and public sectors. The following are typical examples: • (will be given soon)
Accreditation: Both of our Civil Engineering and Applied Civil Engineering programs are accredited by the U.S. Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). Advising: Each undergraduate student is assigned an academic advisor. The role of the faculty advisor includes not only providing guidance for the student in selection of courses but also constant monitoring of his academic performance and initiation of mechanisms to help improve the academic performance of the student. Please note that a student cannot complete his early registration unless he meets with his advisor and completes the formal interview and sign the advising form. The CE Department has also made available a room within the departmental premises for the CE Club, an extra-curricular organization for CE undergraduate students. One of the activities of this Club is for the upperclassmen to share their academic experience with the younger students that would help them streamline their social and academic progress. Curriculum*: Each student majoring in Civil Engineering (CE) or Applied Civil Engineering (ACE) must complete 133 credit hours with a minimum major and cumulative GPA of 2.00 at the time of graduation.
