Course Description

The course focuses on planning, designing and supervising the construction of facilities required for modern life. The course is an excellent blend of fundamentals of civil and construction engineering combined with the practical skills that are essential to begin effective professional practice immediately after graduation. Some of the most common examples of civil engineering works include bridges, buildings, dams, airports, highways, tunnels, and water distribution systems. Civil engineers are concerned with flood control, landslides, air and water pollution, and the design of facilities to withstand earthquakes and other natural hazards. The civil engineering program comprises seven main disciplines: construction engineering and management, construction materials engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental hydrology and hydraulics, structural engineering, and transportation engineering.

Career Opportunities

With increasing growth in real estate and construction, the government budget for creation of infrastructure in the country is also increasing and so is the demand of civil engineers. Civil Engineering graduates can opt for any of the following options:

  • Successfully enter the civil and environmental engineering profession as practicing engineers and consultants with prominent companies and organizations in diverse areas that include structural, transportation, geotechnical, materials, environmental, and hydrologic engineering; construction management; or other related or emerging fields.
  • Pursue graduate education and research at major research universities in civil and environmental engineering, and related fields.
  • Pursue professional licensure.
  • Advance to leadership positions in the profession.
  • Engage in continued learning through professional development.
  • Participate in and contribute to professional societies and community services.
