The Department covers all aspects of the art and science of civil engineering, including environmental engineering.

It has a very active programme of research and participates in many internationally and nationally funded research projects. The main fields of research are: fracture mechanics; modern construction materials; repairs; reinforced concrete structures; steel structures; structural dynamics; earthquake engineering; computational mechanics; soil mechanics; earth retaining structures and foundations; soil dynamics and soil improvement and reinforcement; rock mechanics; flow through porous media; hydraulic structures; environmental hydraulics; hydrology; coastal hydraulics; water and wastewater treatment; air pollution studies; pavements; transportation networks; city and regional networks; restoration of traditional buildings.

The above activities are attested by a large number of publications in international, refereed journals, as well as in conferences.

All departmental activities are housed in the new Civil Engineering Building, with a gross area of 16000 m2.
