Civil Engineering Requirements

In addition to the Competencies for all Engineering Programs the BASIC CIVIL Engineering graduate must be able to (B-Level):

  • Select appropriate and sustainable technologies for construction of buildings, infrastructures and water structures; using either numerical techniques or physical measurements and/or testing by applying a full range of civil engineering concepts and techniques of: Structural Analysis and Mechanics, Properties and Strength of Materials, Surveying, Soil Mechanics and Fluid Mechanics.
  • Achieve an optimum design of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Structures, Foundations and Earth Retaining Structures; and at least three of the following civil engineering topics: Transportation and Traffic, Roadways and Airports, Railways, Sanitary Works, Irrigation, Water Resources and Harbours; or any other emerging field relevant to the discipline.
  • Plan and manage construction processes; address construction defects, instability and quality issues; and maintain safety measures in construction and materials.
  • Deal with biddings, contracts and financial issues including project insurance and guarantees; and assess environmental impacts of civil engineering projects.

To achieve these Intended Learning Outcomes, a set of courses must be completed as a Basic Civil Engineering Requirement.
