Bachelor Of Engineering (Honours) In Civil & Construction Engineering

Civil engineers design and construct bridges, roads, harbours, highways, dams, irrigation and water supplies, hydro-electric projects, high-rise buildings and other prominent structures. As our built environment becomes increasingly complicated, ambitious construction projects can only be completed by teams of people with different skills, working together.

The civil engineer  is important in this process. You will learn to apply your basic engineering knowledge for structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, hydraulics and professional practice.

4 years

In your final year, you will consolidate these engineering skills to the level of an engineering graduate. Speciality options include the environment, transport, public health or advanced structural design.

Entry Criteria

GCE Advanced Level (local):
Minimum of 2 “C” passes and 1 “S” pass in the Physical Science Stream (Combined Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry) in one and the same sitting, with a "C" pass for Mathematics OR Physics).


GCE Advanced Level (Cambridge or Edexcel):
Minimum of 2 “C” passes and 1 “D” pass in one and the same sitting, covering Mathematics and Physics, with a "C" pass in Mathematics OR Physics.

Career Opportunities

Upon graduation you may find employment with consulting engineers, large contractors, specialist subcontractors and government authorities who are working to meet the challenges of creating and maintaining our infrastructure. Later in your career, you may choose to establish your own consultancy as an expert in your field. Civil and construction engineers have skills that are readily transferable between employers and they often find work internationally.

Internship Opportunities

6 months of industrial training is facilitated by us, as well as professionally-recognised first-aid training prior graduation.
