Bachelor in Civil Engineering


Civil engineering is arguably one of the oldest engineering disciplines.

It deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and natural built environment, including buildings, roads, bridges, dams, and canals. It is a wide ranging profession, including different sub-disciplines, structural engineering, materials science, geotechnical engineering, water resources, surveying, and transportation engineering.

The vast majority of civil engineering constitutes materials science and physics.  As mankind aims to build bigger buildings, utilizing living and working space better, civil engineers face new challenges in making structures which are stronger, more resistant to natural disasters and have greater capacities. With the increasing world population, frequency of extreme weather events, and congestion, and depletion of natural resources, civil engineering remains as a growing and more challenging field.

Career Opportunities

As a civil engineer, there is always a lot to do, as the skills of civil engineers are virtually always in high demand throughout many different industries. The graduates of Civil Engineering program are typically employed by government agencies, private industry or engineering consulting firms and their skills, knowledge and competencies are utilized by these organizations for application of different sub-disciplines, such as structural engineering, transportation engineering, hydraulic engineering, and geotechnical engineering. Civil engineering knowledge has increased through the years to where each of these specialties needs its own training. Although all of these sub-disciplines are considered part of civil engineering, each of them needs its own vast area of knowledge.
