PREFACE
All praises to Allah-Sobhano-Taala -the most Benevolent and Merciful. It gives me an immense pleasure to publish the new course curriculum for undergraduate studies of civil engineering. After an indefatigable effort for the last two years, the curriculum in its present style and content was passed by the academic council of BUET in its 364th meeting held on 23 March, 2009. The credit distribution, course contents are modified, updated and for some courses upgraded. The syllabuses of most of the courses are changed for the first time after 17 years.

I would like to express my thanks and gratitude to all my colleagues of the department, Heads of concerned departments, Deans of concerned faculties and the Chairman and Members of Academic Council. Mr. Raquibul Hossain and his team ( all lecturers of the department in 2008), Dr. Md. Mizanur Rahman (BUGS secretary) and Dr. Charisma F. Choudhury (BIIS secretary) also deserve special thanks for their all out effort and help in different stages of preparation of this booklet. Although the current booklet retains the overall characteristics of its pervious versions, efforts have been made to incorporate the key information that an undergraduate student of the department vis-à-vis his/her Adviser may need to know for smoothly carrying out their academic activities. Special care has been taken in Chapter 3 where, apart from reproducing articles from Rules and Regulations for Course System (May, 1999), all the amendments that were subsequently made to it (up to June 2009) have been incorporated in the booklet. As with the practice of any Course System, it is likely that some of the rules and regulations published in this booklet may be modified in the future. Students are, therefore, strongly advised to be in touch with their Advisers regarding modifications, if any, that may be introduced by the university at a later stage.

It is hoped that the information booklet will be useful to the Advisers and undergraduate students of the Department of Civil Engineering.
