Academic ProgrammesBachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
Civil engineering is the field of engineering that deals with a wide range of sub-specializations such as structural engineering, highway and transportation engineering, hydraulic and hydraulic structures, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, water supply and waste water systems, hydrology, construction technology and construction management and runoff estimates. In that respect, in accordance to international trends, civil engineering students are expected to have knowledge of all the above fields during their study course. Bachelor of Science program in Civil Engineering lays a heavy emphasis on practical application of knowledge, while at the same time recognizes the importance of development of correct attitudes alongside theoretical and intellectual development of the graduate engineer This curriculum is designed to equip graduates to face the challenge of modern engineering practice. Both the theoretical and practical aspects of the various civil engineering sub-specialties will be covered through the course of study enabling the graduates to plan, analyze, design and execute civil engineering projects. Modern approaches, technologies and practical applications in the stated areas are emphasized. Thus technical instruction with modern instrumentation, hardware, and software is reinforced with foundation courses emphasizing written and oral communication, and physical sciences. All of the instruction is presented with problem solving in mind and with a strong emphasis on applications and critical thinking.
Graduates can seek employment in a wide range of civil engineering specialties. These include bridge and highway design, construction management, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic systems design, land development, pollution control, and structural design. Employment opportunities will exist with private consulting firms, design/construction businesses and government agencies, including Ministries of Planning, Infrastructures, Irrigation, Dams and Electricity, Transportation, Highway and Bridges, Armed Forces, and Interior. Local municipality planning and engineering agencies will also offer opportunities for employment. Graduates seeking self-employment opportunities will be aided by education leading to licensure as a professional engineer.
