  • Short-Term Pre-School Education Program (SMSSK Group) 

Because of poverty, a lot of kids in Bangladesh skip school for being unable to bear the education expenses. There are also other kids who are completely uninterested in school or do not know what it even is to counter this problem. In 2009 some of the students of the department of Civil Engineering of University of Asia Pacific decided to consult Professor Dr. M. R. Kabir about it, which led to the decision of starting up a short-term pre-schooling after class school activities with the help of the professors for the financially challenged children. The students of the department of CE ventured out into the slums of Dhaka city to search for such deprived children and finally started first class in the 2nd July, 2009. Since then, the students of Civil Engineering, University of Asia Pacific have been conducting 6 month long classes for such deprived children. The students have not only been providing pre-school education to the children but also providing the children with behavioral and social education along with enhancing their creativity and interests. The children are also supplied with pencils, erasers, books and bags for their daily school activities. Children are also provided knowledge on hygienic practices. At the end of the semesters the children are admitted to renowned school and all the expenses for the children are borne by voluntary donations from the Professors of the  Department of Civil Engineering. 




  • Warm Cloth Distribution during winter, Relief program for flood victims 

The students of Civil Engineering Department take regular participation in distributing warm clothes in winter prone rural areas of Bangladesh as well as providing relief for flood victims. These activities are monitored by the Environment & Disaster Management Club (EDMC). The president, vice president and active members of EDMC inform the students before any program and assign a deadline to collect and store warm clothes or money for appropriate relief. Students and faculty members donate clothes personally as well as gather from their neighborhoods. After the completion of collection, the club divides its members in groups and sends them to the areas that require immediate help.

The Department of Civil Engineering is proud of its highly motivated and widely reputed faculty members. The senior faculty members are among the top names in the field of Engineering in Bangladesh and acclaimed beyond borders, while the junior members are among the most promising ones. Therefore it is natural that the faculty members are active beyond their academic duties in nation building and serve as intellectuals. Faculty Members engage themselves in reviewing journal articles in well acclaimed journals. The experienced faculty members in different divisions of Civil Engineering also participate in different conferences through chairing or moderating different sessions, seminars and also involve themselves in judging different competitions such as Olympiads, poster exhibitions that are organized by external universities or other organizations.
