Curriculum

Curriculum

Currently, CE offers 4-year credit system for undergraduate program. The curriculum is tabulated as shown below. The principal areas of concentration in Civil Engineering are: Structures, Water Resources, Transportation, and Constructions; while providing a level of basic training in other areas such as Geomatics and Geotechnical. The curriculum prepares students to be qualified professional civil engineers while meeting specific requirements of specializations in various fields of civil engineering.

The course descriptions for the Faculty of Engineering include the course number, course title, the number of semester credits and the number of contact periods per week in lecture, recitation and laboratory for each course (a contact period is 50 minutes).

The abbreviations used here obey the Higher Education Organizations Credit Systems Regulation of Afghanistan year 1383 (equivalent to 2004). The abbreviations are as follows:

CE – Civil Engineering

EE – Electrical Engineering

ME – Mechanical Engineering
IS – Islamic Studies

HIST – History

ENGL – English

MATH – Math

PHYS – Physics

CHEM – Chemistry

 

Cr – Credits

Lec – Lecture contact periods

Lab - Laboratory contact periods

Rec - Recitation contact periods

 

Example: CE 301 means Civil Engineering Department, Year No.3 Subject No.01. The code number is not repeated in the same department during all four years.
