The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (or SCEE), was founded by the National University of Sciences and Technology in 2008 by merging four established institutes; NUST Institute of Civil Engineering, National Institute of Transportation, Institute of Geographical Information System, and Institute of Environmental Sciences and Engineering.

The school is co-educational and offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, leading to PhD, in the fields of civil and environmental engineering.

History[edit]

National Institute of Transportation (NIT) was established in 1991 at the Risalpur campus of NUST, and was affiliated with Military College of Engineering. The institute initially provided undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the fields of Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical engineering, Structural Engineering, and Water Resources Engineering.

Institute of Environmental Sciences and Engineering (IESE) started its MS in Environmental Engineering in July 1996. Later, PhD programmes were also offered.

With the establishment of the new campus of NUST in Islamabad in 2008, NIT was merged with IESE and Institute of Geographical Information System and given the name of School of Civil and Environmental Engineering(SCEE).

The school consists of four institutes; NUST Institute of Civil Engineering, Institute of Environmental Science & Engineering, Institute of Geographical Information Systems, and National Institute of Transportation.
