INTRODUCTION

Since its establishment in 1982, the department of Civil Engineering has grown to become one of the finest in the Continent. With options in Structural Engineering, Water Resources Engineering Option and Public Health Engineering, our students are exposed to quality learning.

Civil engineering is about thinking big. It is about creating things for the benefit of millions of people.. It is a piece of the puzzle towards creating a sustainable world. Most of all, it is about serving society.

At FUTO we provide research solutions and prepare graduates for the complex infrastructure challenges that face our society. We have research strength in structures and are expanding our expertise and facilities to encompass sustainability, climate change and renewable energy. Our staff expertise and laboratory facilities are much sought after by our profession and industry partners as part of our consulting services.

Philosophy and Objectives

The objectives of the postgraduate diploma programme in Civil Engineering are as follows:

i.     To prepare students for further postgraduate studies in Civil Engineering and develop in them critical understanding of the subject and broaden their knowledge of professional engineering.

ii.   To provide a bridge between HND and the Bachelor’s degree programmes and ensure that graduates of some physical or chemical sciences could be convertible to registrable engineers via the PGD programme.

Civil Engineering is the oldest branch of the Engineering profession. It involves application of the laws of nature (forces and materials) to the design, construction operation and maintenance of facilities that serve our needs in an efficient and economical manner. Typical Specialties within Civil Engineering includes Structural, Transportation, Environmental (including water/waste water treatment and water resources), geotechnical, surveying and construction Engineering. Civil Engineers assume a great deal of responsibility in practice because of the nature of their work.

The Department of Civil Engineering in FUTO was established in the 1982/1983 academic year in the School of Engineering and Engineering Technology (SEET).  Since its establishment in 1982, the department has grown from strength to strength due to inputs from qualified and highly experienced Academics, Technologists and Administrative Staff.

Presently, the department has three options, namely:

i.      Structural Engineering Option

ii.     Water Resources Engineering Option

iii.    Public Health Engineering Option

These options represent the major professional thrust of the Department and both teaching and research efforts are focused on these areas. The Postgraduate programme in the department started in the 1991/92 session. Presently, the department has M. Eng. and Ph.D programmes in Water Resources and Structural Engineering and PGD in Civil Engineering.

The vision of the department is to be the fountain head of new ideas and innovations in Civil Engineering and to produce graduate-enterpreneurs who are job creators in their areas of specialization. The mission of the Department is to offer world-class undergraduate and Postgraduate education, research guidance, professional consultancy, outreach and manpower training as well as leadership in Civil Engineering.
