Civil Engineering Career Overview

Civil engineers are involved in monitoring and guiding as well as devising and designing the building of roads, girders, bridges, airports, harbours, tunnels, dams, water & sewage systems, buildings and other structures. Civil engineering is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering and contains a variety of specialties like structural, water related, environmental, transportation and geo-technical engineering.  Civil engineers are responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the product. Civil engineers require not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. Administrative or supervisory jobs are held by many civil engineers while others work in devising, composing, constructing, researching and teaching jobs. The period through 2015 is projected to hold growth and potential for civil engineers. Due to the growth of population and the need for better infrastructural as well as planning, civil engineers will be required to build and design larger and safer buildings, complexes, transport facilities, as well as more durable water supply, sewage and pollution control mechanisms. Controlling environmental pollution, managing traffic congestion, improving road safety, and disaster management will be a big challenge. Repairing existing roads, dams and other public conveniences will also be a major work allotment.

Department of Public Health

Introduction to MPH Programme:

The social, economic and cultural dimensions of health and population are a major focus of both governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Bangladesh and in other developing countries. It is now increasingly being recognized that there is a need for professionals who are well trained in the multi-faceted complex interactions of social, economic and cultural factors affecting health and population, such as plateauing fertility rates, inadequate health services coverage, the ongoing epidemiological transition from infectious to chronic diseases, and emerging public health issues such as HIV-AIDS Malnutrition, Disaster, Environment Health  problem and Arsenic contamination of water supplies. There is however a critical shortage of such professionals in these countries. This increased demand for such personnel comes at a time where funding for this kind of education abroad (United States, Europe, Australia/New Zealand, Asia) is extremely limited and will continue to be so in the future. Thus there exists a window of opportunity for in-country training of high quality at the master’s level in Public Health, which focuses on social economic and cultural dimensions of health and population.

Leading University is pleased to offer the following post-graduate program leading to the Master of Public Health (M.P.H.). This program will create facilities in higher study for Doctors, Nurses and Non medical health professionals. Highly qualified teachers having PhD, M Phil and MPH degree from renowned universities from home and abroad.
