Degree Values

If you would like to use your skills and creativity to do good in the world, working as a civil engineer could offer you that opportunity. Without the work of civil engineers, society as we know it would not function. There would be no clean water to drink, no safe buildings, and structures to live in or work in and no transportation infrastructure to use for travel. Civil engineers design, develop and create all these essential parts of modern life.

Career Prospects

The graduates of BBAC can work in a variety of areas which includes design of building systems, building construction, supervision of small to large scale building, construction management, estimation, material procurement, construction contracts, operation of building, building safety etc. In the recent past the promotion of construction sector in Pakistan and declaring it as an industry will increase more job opportunities for graduates and resultantly this program will get more attention in coming years.
