B.Sc. in Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is primarily concerned with the design, construction and maintenance of man-made structures placed on the Earth’s surface. Its successful practice requires the efficient application of mathematics and physics along with proper accounts and financial practices.
The BSc in Civil Engineering provides core competency in the essential engineering sub-disciplines and project management, and offers a wide choice of specialization within any of the five sub-disciplines in the final year of the programme. These sub-disciplines are highway, soils, structures, concrete and environment.  Two coursework-based one-year courses are assigned at level two in structural designs and civil engineering designs. There is a capstone 1-year project during the final year coupled with a special investigative project.

Programme Objective

Graduates from the Engineering programs in the Faculty of Engineering are expected to attain or achieve the following Program Educational Objectives within a few years of graduation:

  • A reputation as a source of innovative solutions to complex problems
  • Serve the community as ethical and responsible professionals
  • Pursue advanced study and research in engineering
  • Have developed life-long learning skills and abilities
  • Have developed essential (soft) skills to engage technical and non-technical audiences 
  • Guided by the principles of sustainable development and global interconnectedness, will understand how engineering projects affect society and the environment.
