The establishment of the Department of Civil Engineering coincided with the foundation of Amirkabir University in 1959, but its activities goes back to 1952 as the Institute of Road and Construction Engineering. Later on, in 1984, it was renamed to the Department of Civil and Environment Engineering in order to involve in environmental aspects of civil project. It offers courses at the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels in the fields of structural engineering, earthquake engineering, water engineering, geotechnical engineering, road and transportation engineering, environmental engineering, and construction management. The department has over 40 academic staff and a large body of supporting staff. Currently, over 500 students are pursuing undergraduate studies, approximately 260 students are studying Master of Science, and 60 doctoral students are pursuing studies in the above-mentioned fields. Civil Engineering Department consists of eight academic groups of Construction Management, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Highway and Transportation Engineering, Hydraulics, Structure, Earthquake Engineering, and Water Resources Engineering. The teaching courses comprise lectures, tutorials, design, projects, seminars and laboratory works. The balance between the classical subjects and exposure to innovative thinking produces students who are respected and sought after in the country's construction industry such as roads, buildings, bridges, tunnels, reservoirs, water treatment and supply, as well as environmental aspects of these civil works.
