ENGINEER FOR THE FUTURE
Civil engineering is the scientific study of the planning and construction of buildings, industrial infrastructures, roads and bridges. This programme concentrates on the practical application of technical knowledge (i.e. in mathematics and physical sciences, and their applications to all areas of civil engineering) to real-life and societal problems. Fieldwork is mainly related to planning, designing, constructing and maintaining public infrastructure or systems. It aims to produce graduates who demonstrate capabilities to acquire and apply knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals, possess in-depth technical competence in the civil engineering discipline to undertake problem identification, formulation and solution, and possess the ability to utilise a systems approach to design and evaluate operational performance.
DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING
The Department of Civil Engineering at Faculty of Engineering was established in the year 2006 with the total of 13 students. Initially, it was called Department of Engineering, which consists of Civil, Mechanical, Chemical, Material and Manufacturing programme. As the number of students increased each year, the civil engineering programme was separated from the Department of Engineering and hence, the Department of Civil Engineering was formed. There are total of 24 full time staff in the department, which includes 1 Professors, 3 Associate Professor, 18 Assistant Professors and 2 lecturers. All of our staff is either PhD holders or Masters holders with minimum 5 years of working experience. Many of them are registered with professional bodies such as BEM, IEM, IKM and ICE.
