Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering

Single Degree

The Civil Engineering Programme is structured on a flexible and diverse system that allows you to choose from a broad range of courses to receive a well-rounded education while maintaining high academic standards. 

Students take the common engineering courses which deals with basic concepts in mathematics, science, and fundamental engineering principles, followed by a balanced mix of core courses in the civil engineering discipline.

Courses offered include basic theory of structures, geotechnical engineering, water resources engineering, engineering drawing & measurement, structural analysis, design in concrete and steel structures, and specialized courses in foundation, transportation, and environmental engineering.

During study, students also have the chance to register for Professional Internship (PI) in a private company or public organization, where they learn to practice civil engineering under the guidance of experienced engineers and managers. In the final year, the Programme concentrates on training students in professional civil engineering practice as well as managerial and entrepreneurial skills and students are also required to complete a two-semester duration Final Year Project in any of the specializations in civil engineering.
