The Civil and Environmental Engineering major is multidisciplinary in nature. It covers aspects of studies that relate to the essential needs of mankind. It embodies the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of facilities such as buildings, structures, geotechnical, transportation, water, wastewater and waste.
The four-year undergraduate curriculum provides basic knowledge in sciences, mathematics, and engineering in the first two years. After that, students are required to choose one of the three options within the program (e.g. Structural/Materials, Geotechnical/Transportation, or Water/Environmental Engineering). Certain civil engineering core and elective courses are required from students in each of the different options. During the third year, the student is introduced to different fields in civil engineering with the emphasis on applications and design. After the completion of his third year, the student undertakes an 8-week summer training program in industry. Appropriate electives are also offered to further enhance the student’s knowledge in one or more of the areas of civil engineering. In addition, courses in humanities, social sciences and economics are integrated into the program to broaden the student’s knowledge.
