B.Sc. Bachelor of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and Environmental engineering at DCEE/ Soran University provides you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to enter an industry that, at its core, makes modern society work. The four-year course not only leads to a Bachelor of Engineering qualification but also equips you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to enter an industry that, at its core, makes modern society work.

You will get a good grasp of fundamental areas such as mechanical engineering-statics and dynamics, strength of materials, geomatics, fluid mechanics, environmental, building materials, and mathematics over the first two years of our Civil and Environmental Engineering programs. 

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department offers a well-balanced undergraduate curriculum that aims to produce graduates who are capable of addressing challenges with fixed and frequently restricted resources. The civil and environmental engineering programs emphasizes the application of cutting-edge skills, a thorough grasp of engineering concepts, the capacity to communicate, and the preparedness for lifelong study. Graduates of the undergraduate degree are well-prepared to enter the practice of civil and environmental engineering or pursue additional study in any of the civil engineering specialties. The department offers students the support they need to reach their greatest potential within the framework of their own personal experiences and the profession's expectations.

Junior engineers join the planning, design, construction, and supervision of infrastructure that is vital to everyday life, such as buildings, transportation systems, airports, irrigation systems, water supplies, and environmental protection facilities, as graduates of the civil and environmental engineering school.

Furthermore, you will research these issues using our excellent facilities and equipment. In your final year, you will do an independent research project in which you will have the freedom to explore developing topics such as renewable energy systems and resource efficiency and management. 

You will be prepared to enter the civil engineering profession after completing the course; the degree completely meets the educational requirements for becoming an incorporated engineer and partially meets the requirements for becoming a chartered engineer.

Following that, a program of authorized further learning can be undertaken.

Study methods:

The DCEE is following a semester-based system, implementing the Bologna Process. The method of study depends on lectures, reports, study groups, presentations, laboratories, and practical sessions. Students will be taught in different ways, from the classroom to individual or small-group reflection. Our different teaching formats equip you to be an effective independent learner. The assessment is achieved via class workloads, midterm exams, final exams, essays, and reports. Students on the course will be spending time on independent study, which includes preparation for lectures and seminars, follow-up work, wider reading, practice completion of assessment tasks, or revision.

In the first year of your English Language and Culture Bachelor's program, tuition will be in the form of lectures and tutorials:

Lectures are a way of getting an overview of a large amount of information in a short amount of time; you and your fellow students will be listening to an expert in the field.

Tutorials give you a chance to actively engage with historical issues yourself. You may have to give a presentation, discuss a topic amongst yourself, or work on an assignment. There are plenty of opportunities for interaction and for asking questions.


The duration of the study at the DCEE is 4 academic years of full-time studies. Normally, an academic year starts in the first week of September and ends at the end of June next year.

Program Course Modules taught at the Department:

Students who get a bachelor's degree from DCEE programs are prepared to work as professional engineers. A complete list of Course Modules offered by this department may be found at the following website. Each course has a standard course module code that links to its own dedicated website, which contains all the course's details. Please note that you will be routed to the Academic Profile of the lecturer presenting the course on the website for each course module.
