Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering

The rapid technological changes in Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) necessitate the development of curriculum that takes into account these changes in order to ensure that graduates obtain skills and knowledge that are relevant to the job market. The development of this curriculum has been advised by the long term developmental priorities in the country. It has to this end, referenced Vision 2030, particularly given the preponderance of CEE in the flagship projects. These projects require expertise in the following areas of CEE; structures, environment, geotechnical, water resources, transportation, construction, and urban planning. This curriculum takes into account the trend towards use of computer aided drawing and design (CADD) and simulation software to design complicated civil works, in order to match the demand for Just-In-Time (JIT) accurately finished products that are cost effective and which are delivered or finished within the scheduled time.
