AN EXCITING CAREER WITH AN INCREDIBLE HISTORY AND A TREMENDOUS FUTURE PAST PRESENT Our faculty and staff are dedicated to promoting personal & professional development and preparing our students to enter the Civil Engineering profession and to pursue advanced studies at the graduate level

Wheather you are a prospective student, a current student, an alumnus, an industry partner or a professional colleague; we hope that you find the information presented here enjoyable and informative

Please feel free to contact the
Chairman’s office (16-129) for any questions, comments, or suggestions.
We appreciate your interest and value your input. What is Civil Engineering? Look around you
in any urbanized area and most of what you see is the result of
Civil Engineering! 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. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Therefore, Civil Engineering is a broad engineering discipline that incorporates many different aspects of engineering and offers graduates a flexible, well-rewarded and diverse career with the chance to work and travel over the world. Why Civil Engineering? High demand:

Our society would not work without civil engineering. Infrastructure supports our daily life – roads and harbors, railways and airports, hospitals, sports stadiums and schools, access to drinking water and shelter from the weather. There has never been a better time to pursue a graduate career in civil engineering; today, civilization relies more than ever on teams of inventive people to design, build and maintain the sophisticated environment that surrounds us. Excellent Career:

A graduate career in civil engineering suits those who want a challenge, self-expression, achievement and personal reward through their work. If you would like to combine your technical knowledge and creative flair to solve problems, civil engineering is an excellent career choice. Have a say in what the world will look like:

How many jobs affect how our environment looks and works? For many civil engineers, it is the way they can change our surroundings and improve the lives of millions of people that draws them to the profession. They see whole projects through each stage from feasibility to design and implementation. International opportunities:

Civil engineering offers unparalleled opportunities to work overseas. By becoming professionally qualified, you will be able to enter the international workplace and work abroad for the short or long term. Ongoing opportunities:

Civil engineering is a growing industry. Increasing population and the need for better and more secure infrastructure means more civil engineers are needed. Civil engineering attracts a broad range of people because it draws on many different artistic and scientific talents. The opportunities and roles within the profession are diverse. There is no shortage of work for those with the right skills, knowledge and attitude. Know your industry:

Civil engineering employers come in all shapes and sizes, from small to medium enterprises to multinational organizations. It is important to make sure you choose the right company for you. If you are interested in graduate career in civil engineering at KFUPM then find out more by contacting one of the following:

future - advancing civilization and building our quality of life. Today, the world is undergoing vast changes - the technological revolution,population growth, environmental concerns, and more.
All create unique challenges for civil engineers. The next decades will be the most creative, demanding, and rewarding times for civil engineers. Throughout history, civil engineers have designed and built facilities that have advanced civilization and have provided for a higher standard of living. Today, civil engineers are in the forefront of technology. They are the leading users of sophisticated high-tech products - applying the very latest concepts in computer-aided design (CAD) during design, construction, project scheduling, and cost control. Civil engineering is about community service, development, and improvement. It involves the conception, planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities essential to modern life, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites. Civil engineers are problem solvers, meeting the challenges of pollution, traffic
congestion, drinking water and energy needs, urban redevelopment, and community planning. Civil Engineering: Technical Specialties Environmental and Water Resources Engineering Geotechnical Engineering Structural Engineering As a structural engineer, you will face the challenge of analyzing and designing structures to ensure that they safely perform their purpose. They must support their own weight and resist dynamic environmental loads such as hurricanes, earthquakes, blizzards, floods, and even terrorist explosions. Stadiums,
arenas, skyscrapers, offshore oil structures, space platforms, amusement park rides, bridges, office buildings, and homes are a few of the many types of projects in which structural engineers are involved. You will develop and utilize knowledge of the properties and behaviors of steel, concrete, aluminum, timber, and plastic as well as new
and exotic materials. To make certain that the plans are being followed, you will often be on the construction site inspecting and verifying the work. The skills of environmental engineers are becoming increasingly important as we attempt to protect the fragile resources of our planet.
Environmental engineers translate physical, chemical, and biological processes into systems to destroy toxic substances, remove pollutants from water, reduce non-hazardous solid waste volumes, eliminate contaminants from the air, and develop groundwater supplies. In this field, you might be called upon to resolve problems of providing safe drinking water, cleaning up sites contaminated with hazardous materials, cleaning up and preventing air pollution, treating wastewater, and managing solid wastes. As a water resources engineer, you might be involved in the design, construction, or maintenance of
hydroelectric power facilities, canals, dams, pipelines, pumping stations, locks, or seaport facilities. Almost all of the facilities that make up our infrastructure are in, on, or with earth materials, and geotechnical engineering is the discipline that deals with applications of technology to solve these problems. Examples of facilities in the earth are tunnels, deep foundations, and pipelines. Highway pavements and many buildings are supported on the earth. And earth dams, levees, embankments, and slopes are constructed with the earth. In addition, many soil-like waste materials are deposited in containment areas. To design these facilities, geotechnical engineers must conduct analysis based on the principles of mechanics and mathematics. These analysis require input data to quantify the properties of the earth materials, and this information is usually obtained from laboratory or field tests. Transportation Engineering Because the quality of a community is directly related to the quality of its transportation system, your function as a transportation engineer will be to move people, goods, and materials safely
and efficiently. Your challenge will be to find ways to meet the increasing travel needs on land, air and sea. You will design, construct, and maintain all types of facilities, including highways, railroads, airfields, and ports. An important part of transportation engineering is to upgrade our transportation capability by improving traffic control and mass transit systems, and by introducing high-speed trains, people movers, and other new transportation methods. Begin Building Your Future Now Do you enjoy solving problems and putting your ideas into action? Are you curious about how things work and how to make them better? Are you interested in improving the environment? Are you socially aware and interested in helping people live better? These are some of the qualities shared by all civil engineers. They also make sound decisions and are good communicators, using speaking, writing, and listening skills. If you share some of the traits, civil engineering may be the perfect career for you.
