Departement of Civil Engineering

Goals Department of Civil Engineering:

The Civil Engineering Bachelor (Hons) program prepares students with knowledge and skills in Building Construction, Transportation, Geotechnic, and Water Engineering;

The specific goals of the Civil Engineering Course are:

1. To prepare students to gain knowledge, skills and creative attitudes to plan, design, analyse, implement, and control & supervise in the area of Geotechnic, Building Construction, Transportation, and Water Engineering;;

2.To achieve the knowledge and skills, the students learn a combination of Mathematics, Engineering, Science and Management-based practices based on proven theoretical, practical and industrial approaches;

3. To prepare students with effective communication, critical thinking and problem solving skills, and a sensitivity to gender issue; and

Objectives Department of Civil Engineering:

The Civil Engineeringl graduates are expect to be able to:

1. Enter the construction industry and advance toward leadership positions in the construction industry;

2. Work on multi-disciplinary teams and effectively communicate with constructors, architects, engineers, the public and public agents, scientists and others to completeconstruction projects;

3. Engage in the life-long learning necessary to advance professionally in the construction Field;

4. Contribute to society and the construction industry through involvement in professionalrelated and/or other service activity;

5. Conduct their affairs in a highly ethical manner holding paramount the safety, health andwelfare of the public and striving to comply with the principles of sustainable Development;

6. Some graduates can expect to be able to planning, designing, analysing, implementation, control & supervise related with the Civil Engineering issues;
