Building Engineering & Construction Management department under the Faculty of Civil Engineering started journey from 2016. Every year 30 students are admitted to this department at undergraduate level. This department functions as a center of teaching, learning and research in the field of Building Physics, Concrete Technology and Construction Management.
Building engineering is a field of study concerned with the technical performance of buildings, building materials, building systems and construction management involves the application of technical and scientific knowledge to infrastructure construction projects. A construction engineer plays an important role in ensuring that construction projects go smoothly from start to finish.
The area is broad enough to include construction technology, material science, architecture, heat and mass transport physics and structural design. The field can be seen as the specialization of infrastructure engineering applied to building systems.
