Civil Engineering at SUB
The Department of Civil Engineering, SUB launched its journey in the Spring 2009 semester and offered a 4-year undergraduate program in Civil Engineering. As per academic calendar, the first batch of students graduated in Fall 2012. Since then up to Fall 2018, thirteen batches have graduated. The program starts with foundation courses in basic sciences, mathematics, humanities, social sciences and management with basic courses in Civil Engineering. Subsequently, specialization takes place in the fields of Structural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation Engineering, and Water Resources Engineering. The curriculum is designed to provide the students with a strong theoretical background along with laboratory experiences, projects, and practical work/ internship.
The department has dedicated itself to providing quality education, encouraging faculty, staff and student to a strong commitment to excellence. For technical education, especially for Civil Engineering, the department always gives importance on laboratory facilities, professional training or internship, and project. In the CE department of SUB, the courses dependent on laboratories start from the very first semester and continue up to the graduation. The department provides full-fledged laboratory facilities for its students. The internship that the students have to complete with an industry/organization before she/he graduates help her/him to grow in confidence to work in real life situations.
The department has always been trying to provide complete Civil Engineering education with class lectures, laboratory demonstrations, quality research work, and a professional internship. Eventually the Civil Engineering program, SUB has been accredited by the Board of Accreditation of Engineering and Technical Education (BAETE). The graduates of this department have been admitted in the postgraduate program of the country’s premier engineering university, and in reputed universities abroad. In 2018, an external peer review team of UGC’s Institutional Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) gave the department an overall judgment “Very Good” based on the academic quality aspects.
As an advance step to encourage higher education and quality research within the department and meet demands in the job market, the department is going to launch its postgraduate (Masters) program. To face the challenge of the twenty-first century, the department is committed to continue and improve its overall feature to produce quality Civil Engineers.

COURSES SUMMARY ( FOR DIPLOMA)
Department of General Education
(Non-Degree Awarding Department for Interdisciplinary courses)
At Southern University Bangladesh, we are proud of our wide-ranging General Education course. Students entering the University study Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences as well as Bangladesh Studies and English Language in their first year on top of courses for their specialist subjects.
Each of the three branches, Science, Bangladesh Studies, and, lastly, Humanities and Social Sciences earn passing students three (3) credits for thirty hours of face-to-face study with GED faculty. However, outside classes, they can also take advantage of our web-based materials to read the lectures again or listen to audio recordings of them. This will help to improve their English language skills as well.
At Southern University Bangladesh, we believe that all university students should have a broad range of general knowledge and that is just what we aim to give you.
But you might be worried about your computer skills. Don’t be! For those who struggle with IT, we provide a hands-on introduction, where we will introduce you to typing and keyboard skills, emailing, social media, PowerPoint presentations and more. And all of this will be in the University’s state-of-the-art computer labs.
Let’s face it, to get the best jobs, everyone needs to be computer literate and that’s just what we offer you before you even begin classes. But what about English?
You are probably a Bangla medium student who has not had much practice in speaking, listening or writing. Maybe English frightens you and we are sure most of you find it boring and hard. You won’t feel like that with us! Our friendly young staff do not lecture you on grammar but give you the space to speak and develop confidence in your English skills through fun, interactive language classes. We do not repeat boring lessons on grammar that you have already suffered at SSC and HSC level. We get you using the language on paper and in conversation.
So, why don’t you contact us and find out more? We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Southern University Bangladesh family! We are the first department you will be working with. And we know it’s got to interest you and that it’s going to be an honor and adventure for us too!
