The Department of Structural Engineering is probably one of the biggest departments of NUST, in terms of the faculty and UG/PG teaching/research activities. In fact, B.E Civil Engineering Course offered anywhere in the world contains about 68%subjects pertaining to Structural Engineering.Structural Engineering is the trunk of Civil Engineering. All other fields like geotechnical and hydraulics Engineering isthe branches off-shooting from the trunk.Department of Structural Engineering isa vibrant department in NUST Institute of Civil Engineering (NICE).Within a very short span of time,the Department has established its strong reputation by developing National and international links and has the faculty known in Pakistan and around the Globe. Some of the links include University of Surrey UK, Technical University Freiberg Germany and Cardiff University (UK).Some of its national links include NESPAK, FWO,WAPDA,Mott Macdonald Pakistan limited, C&Wdepartment and some classified organizations.The department offers M.S/PHD Programs. Its bachelors Program imparts education and training toward the understanding of courseslike Structural Analysis, Reinforced Concrete Structures, Steel Structures , Fire Response of RC structures, Space structures, properties of Structural Materials,Prestressed Concrete, Engineering Mechanics, Structural analysis, Seismic Design of Structures, Bridge Engineering and Design of Structures.The curriculum is regularly revised to impart the latest knowledge to the students focusing on latest trends including modeling of structures on structural engineering Soft wares. We have no doubt, that our graduateswill be the torch bearers in the profession and are fully capable to face the current challenges.
