Civil Engineering Department
College of Engineering started with the Civil Engineering Department only in the academic year 1968-1969 in Suleimania city of Iraqi Kurdistan, during the same year, a total of (44) students were registered. Civil Engineering Department offers a four years B.Sc in engineering. Postgraduate studies of two years (M.Sc) in different fields of Civil Engineering (Structures, Hydraulics, and Highways) commenced in the academic year 1976-1977. Postgraduate studies extended leading to a Ph.D. degree in Structural Engineering.
Head of Department
One of the nine departments of Salahaddin University’s college of engineering is the civil engineering department. The department was established together with Salahaddin University in Sulaimani in 1968, making it the oldest department still in operation. The department remained in Sulaimani until 1981, when it relocated to Erbil (Capital of Kurdistan Region) as part of the College of Engineering-Salahaddin University. Numerous hundreds to thousands of civil engineers have graduated from this prestigious university’s core program. Due to their contributions to society, this department and university have also prospered.
The department has evolved with the times in a distinct way probably due to the identification of various important specialties in the field of civil engineering. The department provides a four-year civil engineering bachelor’s degree. As well as master’s and doctoral’s degrees in a variety of civil engineering fields (structures, materials, hydraulics, water supply, and waste management, geotechnics, transportation, and construction management),
Civil engineering is a rewarding and challenging profession. The primary goals of the civil engineer are building and maintaining our culture’s physical infrastructure, as well as using and preserving natural resources for the advancement of humanity.
Buildings, bridges, highways, airports, dams, water supply systems, and waste management systems are just a few examples of the types of civil infrastructure projects that civil engineers supervise, manage, and plan in a technical manner. From this perspective, our department of civil engineering has chosen to transition from the Course System to the Bologna Process to develop its educational process. This was approved by the ministry of higher education which has been started in the academic year 2019–2020, for the first level at which undergraduate students can choose the courses in the field of their interest to allow a unified and all-around growth of their areas of specialization. Through internship and project programs, we try to connect the civil department with local construction projects in our region in a manner that is also consistent with recent global developments in higher education and facilitates student mobility. We also aim to increase the employability of the graduates.
This website is the window through which the facilities and possibilities offered by the department are meant to be viewed.

The mission of the Department of Civil Engineering is to provide quality education to prepare nationally competitive undergraduate students for a successful career in civil engineering; to provide advanced skills and knowledge in state-of-the-art research and design in sub-areas of civil engineering for graduate students; and to provide service to the university, engineering profession, and the public. The objectives are:
1-To ensure that graduates will have a mastery of fundamental knowledge, problem-solving skills, engineering experimental abilities, and design capabilities necessary for entering civil engineering career and/or graduate school.
2-To produce graduates that have the knowledge and skills necessary for identifying and assessing design alternatives and the related social, economic, environmental, and public safety impacts.
3-To produce graduates who have verbal and written communication skills necessary for successful professional practice.
4-To prepare graduates to function effectively on teams.
5-To prepare graduates for professional licensure, leadership roles, and life-long learning.
The Department of Civil Engineering will try to develop internationally prominent educational and research programs to ensure sustainable prosperity and quality of life.
The department will also excel in undergraduate and graduate instruction, research in all sub-areas of civil engineering, and service to the public consistently. The Department will make significant contributions to the social development of the region and nation, through our leadership in engineering education.
