Civil Engineering

Considering the fast pace of development in Pakistan, the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute has decided to expand its horizons by starting a new program of Civil Engineering from 2018. The China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) offers significant opportunities of development and economic growth to Pakistan. The Civil Engineers have a vital role to play in executing developments projects under CPEC such as expansion of road networks, laying of railway lines, construction of dams and power houses, industrial evolution, etc. From Khunjerab to Gwadar there lies opportunities; and we at GIK Institute believe that together with our prospective students, we have the capacity to avail them to the fullest for the Nation’s and our benefit.

Faculty at Department of Civil Engineering has foreign qualified professionals with years of experience and dedication to impart knowledge to the future of the nation. The faculty is fully functional, has well equipped laboratories, and furnished classrooms to provide best facilities to the students. The department has a perfect balance of all the sub disciplines of which its labs are a striking proof. The equipment is of such standards that it can be utilized for commercial testing.
