Traditionally Civil Engineering deals with a large diversity of engineering problems. Because of its general nature, Civil Engineering allows a number of multidisciplinary activities to be conventionally organized within it. Department of Civil Engineering, one of the first academic disciplines of KUET started its first academic curriculum in 1974 with 40 students. In this department, the existing total number of UG students is 533 including 76 female students, while PG students are 176 including 22 female students. However, the yearly intake of fresh students is 120 in UG and 20 in PG levels. The Department of Civil Engineering offers basic and advanced regular and optional courses in the area of Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Structural Engineering and Concrete Technology, Transportation Engineering and Water Resources Engineering. Research on the above fields is extremely important in the national context. These include areas like behavior of available building and road materials with emphasis on indigenous materials, engineering properties of soil in various regions of the country, effectiveness of granular piles as a ground improvement technique. Moreover, It also covers foundation engineering, retaining structures, solid waste management, environmental pollution control, environmental impact assessment, geometric design of highways, transportation planning and management, advanced concrete technology, durability of concrete structures, seismic zoning of Bangladesh etc.
