Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree Programme

Single Degree

Today’s Civil Engineers not only build modern engineering marvels, but they also contribute to the liveability and sustainability of our environment. They improve the living spaces, fight against climate change, provide clean air and water, and ensure efficient urban mobility.


NTU Civil Engineering programme provides a unique engineering education that prepares students to address the challenges of sustainability in future cities. The programme prepares Civil Engineering students for careers related to Urban Infrastructures & Solutions. The civil engineering courses in the programme can be broadly categorised into Infrastructure Development and Urban Solutions.

SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree Programmes (WSDeg): ENHANCING STUDENTS' JOB-READINESS

The Committee on the Future Economy has recommended the introduction of new modalities of education and training at the Institutes of Higher Learning as there are tangible benefits for students to be exposed to on-the-job training (OJT). SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree Programmes (WSDeg) are purposed to enhance students’ readiness for the workplace after graduation by integrating institution-based learning with structured OJT in partnership with employers. Students benefit from greater exposure to the professional work environment, allowing them to learn on the job, acquire and deepen jobskills, and cultivate an understanding of real-world practices through multiple internships, culminating in an industry-sponsored WSDeg Final Year Project (FYP).

International & Other Qualifications

  • Pass in Senior High School Level Mathematics, and
  • Pass in Senior High School Level Biology/ Chemistry/ Physics, and
  • Pass in Junior High School Level Physics4


1   Pass in H1 Level / ‘O’ Level Physics is only applicable to applicants who have not read H2 Level Physics.
2   Pass in Standard Level Physics is only applicable to applicants who have not read Higher Level Physics.
3   Overall CAP of 2.0 in Physics is only applicable to applicants who have not majored in Physics.
4   Pass in Junior High School Level Physics is only applicable to applicants who have not read Senior High School Level Physics.

Applicants with only a H1 Level / ‘O’ Level pass in Physics are required to read 'PH1012 Physics A' instead of 'PH1011 Physics' in their first semester. Computer Engineering and Computer Science students will read 'SC1013 Physics for Computing' instead.

* Students who are undecided on their Engineering major may opt for Engineering (i.e. Common Engineering) at the point of application. All Common Engineering students will read a semester of common first year courses after which they will be streamed into either Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Materials Engineering or Mechanical Engineering at the end of Year 1, Semester 1. In all cases, admissions and streaming into an engineering major is merit-based.

International Students
International students must have completed at least 12 years of general education, or will be taking Year 12 national examinations in the year of application in order to be considered for admission. In addition to fulfilling the minimum entry requirements, applicants must also satisfy the minimum subject requirements. For further details, please refer here.


Admission matters are handled by the Office of Admissions. For further information and enquiry, please contact the Office of Admissions.

Students with outstanding Singapore GCE ‘A’ Level, International Baccalaureate (IB) and NUS High School Diploma results may be eligible for exemptions from up to 3 selected first-year courses, more details could be found via the following link.

Students with outstanding Poly Diploma results admit directly to Second year, may be eligible for exemptions for the course MH1810 Mathematics I. 

The WSDeg comprise approximately 54 weeks of OJT and industry-sponsored FYP integrated into the 4-year undergraduate curriculum. The OJT components include:

  • Work Term 1: PA (10 weeks in Year 2 Special Semester from May to Jul; 5AU)
  • Work Term 2: PI (20 weeks in Year 3, Semester 2 from Jan to May; 10AU)
  • Work Term 3: PA (11 weeks in Year 3 Special Semester from May to Jul; 5AU)
  • Work Term 4: PA Winter (5 weeks in Year 4 Winter from Dec to Jan; 3AU)
  • WSDeg Final Year Project (FYP): (40 weeks in Year 4 Semester 1 & 2, minimum 8 hours/week; 8AU)



  1. Block 1 & 2: These Discovery/Exploratory blocks allow students to develop foundational skillsets and fundamental industry insights before commitment to a focused job role/function. Students may choose to stay with the same company for both Work Term 1 and 2, or select a different company for each Work Term.
  2. Block 3: Students are expected to commit to one of the companies they have engaged with in earlier work terms (either Work Term 1 and/or 2).
  3. The AU for the 3 PA in Work Term 1, 3 and 4 will be drawn from students' Broadening & Deepening Electives (BDE). Interested students should plan their studies accordingly to free up 13AU of BDE for the 3 PA.
Details on curriculum structure can be found on this page.
