The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (SCEE) was established in November, 2008. It comprises three vibrant institutes, namely Institute of Environmental Science and Engineering (IESE), Institute of Geographical Information Systems (IGIS) and NUST Institute of Civil Engineering (NICE). SCEE is a modern and progressive school, the first of its kind that offers a wide choice of programs in the disciplines of Civil and Environmental Engineering. In BE programs, students are given the option of selecting an elective major. This means that while remaining Civil or Environmental Engineering graduates, they specialize in a particular field of their discipline. SCEE has advanced postgraduate programs in Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Transportation engineering, Water Resource Engineering and Management, Environmental Engineering, Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems and Construction Engineering and Management. The programs are tailored to equip graduates with the requisite knowledge and skills in order to meet the latest challenges in their respective fields.

The goal of SCEE is to undertake basic and applied research to educate the next generation of academia and industry leaders, and prepare students for successful careers in relevant professions. SCEE has a competent and experienced faculty, and is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories, sophisticated equipment and computing facilities. It has an excellent library with the latest books, journals and technical reports pertaining to relevant disciplines. It offers an enabling environment for dynamic students looking for challenging and adventurous professions, such as Civil and Environmental Engineering and Geographical Information Systems.
