Programme Overview

Bachelor of Civil Engineering with Honours is a 4-year programme and aims to produce qualified civil engineers who are competent, creative, highly dedicated graduates and able to find solutions to diverse problems through innovative thinking. Modules include all disciplines in the civil engineering.

The discipline covers:

·                 structural engineering

·                 geotechnical engineering

·                 water resources engineering

·                 highway and traffic engineering

·                 geomatic engineering

·                 environmental engineering 

·                 construction management

All courses that are being offered in the civil engineering programme blend together the theoretical and practical aspects of learning according to the relevant needs of the industrial and public sectors. Students will also be equipped with fundamentals of business practice such as finance, marketing and management as well as co-curricular activities so that the students could adapt themselves well to the current state affairs. The School has formally adopted the Outcome Based Education (OBE) system since the 2006/2007 academic session to fulfil the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) requirements for undergraduate engineering programme in Malaysia.
