About Civil Engineering

The Department of Civil Engineering is one of the first academic departments set up under the Faculty of Engineering. It currently offers academic programmes at undergraduate level and postgraduate research qualifications at Master of Engineering Science and Doctor of Philosophy levels.

The Department is subdivided into four major sections within the Department namely, Structural and Materials Engineering, Water and Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Construction Management, Geotechnical Engineering and Surveying, and is actively engaged in R&D works with financial support from the university, government, and industrial grants. Many academic members of the Department are also pursuing engineering consultancies requiring expertise in multidisciplinary areas.

The Department currently offers one undergraduate degree programme, namely Bachelor of Civil Engineering. The programme was first introduced in the year 1956, and the latest curriculum introduced in the year 2016 as a 4-year programme under the semester system. The programme was recognised by the Malaysian Public Services Department (JPA) and is accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
