Research is exciting and important; the generation of new and advanced knowledge requires innovative ideas, and different ways of seeing the world. It is important to disseminate, as well as to generate, research in order to make a positive cultural, social, environmental and economic impact.
Department has several research lab namely structure lab, concrete lab, environmental engineering lab, hydraulics lab, transportation lab, geotechnical lab etc. These laboratories are highly equipped to conduct quality research projects in the field of civil and environmental engineering. To carry out the research activities in a larger scale the university is collaborating with reputed international and local organizations.
This laboratory offers excellent facilities for detail analysis of potable water and waste water in terms of physical, chemical and microbiological parameter.
The GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING Laboratory of Islamic University of Technology is equipped with standard and advanced soils testing equipment for classification, compaction, shear strength and other types of tests on soils.
Islamic University of Technology’s Hydraulics Laboratory is part of a unique research facility designed for hydraulic model studies, hydraulic performance testing and research in the fields of open channel and closed conduit hydraulics.
The key purpose of the Concrete Laboratory is to provide hands on experience regarding tests related to construction materials such as cement, coarse aggregates, fine aggregates, and mineral admixtures.
