B.Sc. in Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering UWI, Mona

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.



The overall educational objectives for the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering are to produce graduate who can:

  1. Embark upon diverse career paths in civil engineering while demonstrating professional engineering competence by holding positions of increasing responsibility in industry, business, government and/or educational institution.
  2. Advance their technical skills, knowledge and understanding through professional growth and development opportunities provided by participation in a professional society, continuing education, or pursuit of advanced degrees in engineering or other related fields.
  3. Publish papers, reports, patents and/or technical presentations at local, national, international meetings or within the professional organization/company that they are affiliated with.
