Department of Civil Engineering, University of Dar Es Salaam

The University consists of six faculties, five institutes and two colleges: Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences; Faculty of Commerce and Management; Faculty of Education; Faculty of Engineering; Faculty of Law; Faculty of Science; Institute of Development Studies; Institute of Kiswahili Research; Institute of Marine Sciences; Institute of Production Innovation; Institute of Resource Assessment; the University College of Lands and Architectural Studies and the Muhimbili University College of Health Sciences.

For purposes of maintaining East African inter-university academic cooperation and communication, an Inter-University Council for East Africa was set up in 1970. The Council has established an Inter-University Exchange Programme, through which the University admits students from other East African countries mainly Kenya and Uganda. The University also admits students from several other countries the world-over through established links, exchange programmes or individual applications. Most of these students receive their bursaries from their respective governments. Students from other countries are considered for admission to both undergraduate and postgraduate studies, subject to the availability of vacancies.
