The CBT Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering programme aims at training students with theoretical knowledge and sound practical skills in design and entrepreneurial skills to take up the design and supervisory role in the Civil Engineering Industry. They will also be adequately prepared with the requisite skills to set up their own small and medium-scale industries.
The main objective of the programme is to produce professional Engineers who will be able to analyse, design, construct and maintain Civil Engineering works and systems. At the end of the programme, the BSc graduate will be able to:
Design, and supervise the construction and maintenance of highway and transportation structures; reinforced concrete, steel and timber structures; and water & sanitation systems;
Carry out geotechnical investigations & applied research with linkage to industry & business; and
Manage civil engineering projects entrepreneurial in nature.
