Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline after Military Engineering, and it is defined to distinguish non-military engineering from Military Engineering. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including Architectural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Control Engineering, Structural Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Forensic Engineering, Municipal or Urban Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Materials Engineering, Wastewater Engineering, Offshore Engineering, Facade Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Coastal Engineering, Construction Surveying, and Construction Engineering.
Civil engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
Program Educational Objectives
Apply the knowledge across the disciplines in emerging areas of Civil Engineering for higher studies, research and employability and provide solutions for real problems.
Exhibit good communication skills, ethical conduct, sense of responsibility to serve the society and protect the environment.
Demonstrate strong foundation in academics, inter-personal skills, need for lifelong learning and professional development.
Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
DESIGN/DEVELOPMENT OF SOLUTIONS:
Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
CONDUCT INVESTIGATIONS OF COMPLEX PROBLEMS:
Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
MODERN TOOL USAGE:
Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
THE ENGINEER AND SOCIETY:
Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY:
