Faculty Departments

Faculty of Engineering is consisting of three departments namely:

  • Architecture and building technology Department,
  • Civil Engineering Department,
  • Electrical & Electronics Engineering Department.

Introduction Architecture and Building Technology Department

Introduction: Architecture arises from the same origins as other universal manifestations of material culture. However, the artifacts designated as architecture possess a scale, permanence, and a pervasive influence unique among human endeavors. These qualities give the discipline a cultural prominence that few other professions enjoy. Therefore, the study of architecture is concerned with complex, interdisciplinary issues. Some matters are primarily individual and practical: the basic human need for shelter and the desire to contrive efficient, adequate forms for the patterns of daily life. Architecture also serves a higher purpose, expressing the living values of a culture. It gives form, order, and proportion to human activities. The practice of architecture today requires coordinated contributions from a variety of fields. Consequently, the study of architecture at National University, Sudan investigates principles and applications of technology, art, humanities, engineering, physical and social sciences, business, and management. The Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture & Building Technology degree is intended for students seeking a professional career in architecture. The curriculum is designed to meet the requirements to prepare the graduate for professional practice. Sudanese and international graduates enjoy the availability of jobs in public and private companies or pursue their own business. They may continue postgraduate education in masters and PhDs to teach in colleges of Architecture.

Introduction to Civil Engineering Department

Introduction: Civil Engineering is the oldest and one of the most important branches of the engineering profession all over the world as civil engineering is related to almost all aspects of civilization. Many of the important things in our lives that we take for granted are the product of civil engineering. Civil engineer deals with a wide variety of engineering aspects such as designing, construction, and maintenance of different structure (buildings, embankments, storage tanks, dams, roads, water and wastewater networks, irrigation and drainage networks, etc…..), solving execution problems, managing engineering and construction projects, and it just does not end there. The civil engineer also has a significant role in planning and managing transportation systems, terrific safety, conservation and development of water resources, treatment and reuse of wastewater, and the list extends. The civil engineering curriculum at National University – Sudan is set to serve the broad range of activities of the profession. It is designed to fulfill the student’s need for sufficient and balanced content of different civil engineering topics. The graduate can go in any one of the above areas, and be immediately enrolled in jobs. A graduate may, also, choose to obtain a master’s or Ph.D. in the subspecialties of civil engineering. International students are allowed to take engineering jobs in Sudan.

Introduction to Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department

Introduction: Graduate from the Faculty of Engineering with B.Sc. (EEE) acquires a unique mix of electrical, electronics, and computer related courses enabling the students to take up a professional career / higher studies in any of these areas. A broad range of topics covered includes Electrical Circuits, Electrical Machines, Control Systems, Measurements & Instrumentation, Power Generation, Distribution & Transmission, Analog & Digital System Design, Power Electronics, Microprocessors, Computer Architecture, Data Structures, Digital Signal Processing, Communication Systems, Renewable Energy Systems, and Illumination Technology, etc. The curriculum will be updated periodically to reflect changes in the Electrical & Electronic Engineering profession in consultation with experts from industries and other renowned academic institutions. The graduate can go in any one of the above areas, and be immediately enrolled in jobs. A graduate may choose to obtain a master’s or Ph.D. in the subspecialties of civil engineering. International students are allowed to take engineering jobs in Sudan.


The VISION of the department is to provide excellence in architectural education and apply contemporary design innovations according to international standards of quality in the field of architecture and building technology.

The MISSION is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of architectural education to provide students with knowledge and experience to enable them to design architectural projects with an emphasis on local and regional contemporary architectural styles.

VISION and MISSION of Civil Department

The VISION of the Civil Engineering Department is to be recognized locally and regionally as a leading department providing high-quality education, research, and services.

The MISSION is to provide students with the highest level of theoretical and practical education that leads them to successful careers. The department programs prepare graduates to acquire effective and interactive skills to face new challenges as high caliber Civil Engineers to enable them to contribute effectively and professionally to society.


The VISION of this Department is to provide education leading to becoming a highly competent professional in Electrical & Electronics Engineering who will excel in meeting the challenges to serve the society.

The MISSION is to enhance the position of the EEE Department as one of the top teaching and research departments in Sudan by providing the highest quality teaching and learning environment for the students and thus producing competent and compassionate EEE graduates fully equipped to achieve the highest personal and professional standards for the overall development of the university and of the country. Moreover, the Department is dedicated to attracting and sustaining a cluster of faculty members who are, through their quality teaching, research, and service, devoted to the development of compassionate EEE graduates.
