Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

Civil Engineering

Code: E101

Civil Engineering involves the planning, design, construction, management, maintenance, and operation of much of the infrastructure that surrounds us and underpins modern civilisation. Examples of such infrastructure includes buildings, roads, bridges, tunnels, dams, towers, pipelines, retaining walls, sewers, wastewater treatment plants, drainage, flood control and water supply. The BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering programme thus develops essential knowledge of engineering principles and enables their application towards the solution of civil engineering problems, with the aim of improving the quality of life of all.

Future Careers

Graduates are expected to be able to progress towards become a professionally qualified civil engineer. Career opportunities are available in a wide range of organisations in the civil engineering and construction sector, including public works, consulting and construction companies, civil aviation, road and transportation authorities, environmental protection authorities. Furthermore, graduates are equipped with fundamental problem-solving and numeracy skills which enable them to adapt to the challenges of working in many other industries, as well as in research and development.
