The department has started with intake of 30 students and growing up to an average more than 500 students by academic year as per the demand of nation starting from 2008/09. The school is offering at present a five year B.Sc degree program in civil engineering and Water Resources and Irrigation Engineering for regular, evening and summer students and five M.Sc program in collaboration with Ethiopian Road Authorities.

Along with the country wide revision and subsequent restructuring of engineering and technology education in collaboration with German government, the college of engineering  changed its form in to  Ethiopian  Institute of Technology-Mekelle [EiT-M] as we know it today. Following this the institute restructuring again and the department upgraded into School of Civil Engineering, since October 2014. Currently, the school consists of five chairs.
