Civil Engineering, a people serving profession, involves the application of engineering principles and applied sciences to the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of capital projects in a typical asset life cycle.  This includes buildings, roads, bridges, dams, airports, water and wastewater treatment plants, oil and gas production facilities, special purpose structures and any engineered structures for the comfort of mankind.


Students are exposed to courses in computer aided design, surveying, transportation engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, pavement and materials engineering, construction and project management, steel and concrete design, water and wastewater engineering. 


In addition to the above courses, students are given the opportunity to major in one of these selected areas in the final year of their study namely:

  • Offshore Engineering
  • Coastal Engineering
  • Building Construction & Repair
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Geotechnical Infrastructure Engineering
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Civil

Programme Educational Objectives​

  • Engineers who are competent with the potential to become leaders of Civil Engineering industries.
  • Engineers who are committed to sustainable development of Civil Engineering industries for the betterment of the society. 

Programme Outcomes

To produce graduates with the following outcomes:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation as specified in WK1 to WK4 respectively to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  • Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
  • Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems.
  • Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts.
  • Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  • Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
  • Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision making and apply these to one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
