I.1 MISSION STATEMENT OF THE DEPARTMENT
Teaching in Civil Engineering aims at training teachers of civil engineering with the skills required to meet the challenges of modern construction and to meet the needs of the construction industry and public works. Students will learn the techniques of structural design and construction.
They are expected to take on a variety of issues such as teaching in the areas of structural calculations and sizing, soil mechanics and foundations, hydraulics, materials, use of new energy, prevention and management of risk, safety, protection of the environment, infrastructure and superstructure, the thermal performance of buildings, roads and networks, etc. It allows students to develop their knowledge, skills, expertise in the above areas.
I.2 OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAMME
At the end of the training
In terms of knowledge, the program allows students to acquire the skills required for the practice of the profession of civil engineering programs. It allows organizations to analyze their practices and do urban planning, including environmental changes, anticipate changes, master civil engineering regulations, carry out research and monitor team work and to realize a professional project.
In terms of know-how, the future teacher will be able:
- To teach in schools and colleges of technical education;
- To apply Engineering and scientific techniques;
- The design sustainable buildings in tropical zones and other areas;
- To carry out maintenance of operating real estate and energy management;
- To coordinate and manage projects.
