The department of Civil Engineering comprising of three main divisions, viz. Material and Structural Engineering, Hydraulics and Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical and Transportation Engineering offers diverse courses not only in the civil engineering programme but also in the General Programme and in the other Specialization Programmes in the Faculty of Engineering.
"The mission of the Faculty is to acquire, promote and disseminate knowledge of engineering sciences and their application to improve the quality of life and, in particular, to equip present and future generations of men and women with skills and attitudes to attain competence as professional engineers, and to interact with industry by providing expertise and specialised facilities".
The course in Civil Engineering is designed to equip students with a thorough grounding of mathematics, engineering sciences and technology, with a good understanding of the basic principles of core subjects in Civil Engineering, embracing theory, analysis and design.
A good grasp of the fundamentals of mechanical and electrical engineering, computing and software-based applications, communication skills, and complementary studies including economics, management, health, safety, risk, sustainability, professional ethics and industrial training in an engineering environment, is ensured.
The BScEng graduate specialising in Civil Engineering is thus expected to:
The degree programme covers all main engineering topics related to civil engineering and equips the students with essential skills to practise as a professional engineer.
