Faculty and Student Research and Publications

The faculty members of the department have been involving in various research works and contributing papers in international conferences/peer review journal all over the world.

The departmental students must be involved in project/research activities for graduating from the CE department. Students are categorized according to their CGPA and field of interests and assigned a supervisor who is expert in that field. Besides, an external expert (a renowned academician or professional working in relevant topics) is included in the Thesis Committee for each student, who must eventually present her/his thesis satisfactorily to the members of the committee.

Some of the more recent and significant theses completed by the departmental students are as follows:
