The overall Construction department objective is to improve students engineering skills and train them vocationally.
Teach theoretically and accommodate it in practice
Improve the knowledge of students in construction field (building construction, architecture, road construction, surveying, water Supply
We will try to pave the ground for testing of several materials in laboratory
Construction department are trying to pave the ground for students to work practically in different kinds of shops
Develop student practical skills in masonry shop, metal shop, plumbing shop, carpentry shop and electric shop
The construction department is a major department in ATVI. The importance of this department has a direct relationship with importance of this field in our country because we need this field urgently. We need to train vocational people for rehabilitation of our country. A country needs standard structures for the life of peoples, drainage sewerage system, highway and so on. For these facilities we need vocational people because we lost everything in the ongoing war. Vocational people play a key role. Training of vocational people indicates the significance of this department. Construction Department tries to build infrastructure for Afghanistan

The Construction Department indeed has its own updated curriculum. The outstanding features of the construction department curriculum are as follows:
The curriculum of the department is revised from time to time.
It is delivered by professional graduates from the Faculty of engineering and other high caliber educational institutions.
- It is based on the job market requirements.
It delivers both theoretical and practical lessons.

We have both future plans for students and faculty. For students laboratory is necessary to test several materials, shops are also necessary. Construction Department has plan to promote workshops practical works. Construction Department tries to pave the ground for students to visit sites during construction projects. Revision of curriculum is also under consideration. The head of department has decided to create an opportunity for faculties to attend a seminar for faculty capacity development. Construction Department tries to hold courses for students as well.
For testing materials in laboratory US army corps helped ATVI in establishing of a modern laboratory .
Vocational people can help us in workshops in the future. We will train shop instructors for conducting effective practical works.
For capacity building of faculty Construction Department convenes part time training courses.
Construction Department will hold part time courses for weak students.
Construction Department will provide an opportunity for students to visit sites during construction projects and activities.
As mentioned above for implementation of construction department future plan
strong support of ATVI senior management is needed.
Active faculty is an asset for construction department and can take active part in our plan implementation.
Hard working students can also be considered an important aspect for our achievements.
Revising curriculum helps us in better teaching.
