Bachelor of Civil Engineering programme provides a solid foundation of knowledge so that students can use the basic principles in Civil Engineering practice and problems. The subject involves the design and construction of projects, financing them, managing the construction process and maintenance. Civil Engineering helps to solve problems, design, build and maintain our living and working spaces..

It involves finding innovative solutions using a mixture of creativity, application of knowledge for the planning, design and execution of infrastructure works to enhance the quality of life. Civil engineers have played a significant role in most of the famous landmarks in the world. With the growing population straining today’s infrastructures, civil engineers are required to improve and build the built environment now and into the future.

Programme Objectives (PO)

  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and Civil Engineering specialization as specified in WK1 to WK4 respectively to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex Civil Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences (WK1-WK4).
  3. Design solutions for complex Civil Engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations (WK5).
  4. Conduct investigation of complex Civil Engineering problems using research-based knowledge (WK8) and research methods, including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex Civil Engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations (WK6).
  6. Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
  7. Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex Civil Engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts (WK7).
  8. Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice (WK7).
  9. Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communicate effectively on complex Civil Engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision-making and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Recognise the need for and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
