Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering - Internship Option


The Civil Engineering (CE) program is multidisciplinary in nature. It covers aspects of studies that relate to the essential needs of mankind. It embodies the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of facilities such as buildings, structures, geotechnical, transportation, water, wastewater and waste.

The four-year undergraduate curriculum provides basic knowledge in sciences, mathematics, and engineering in the first two years. During the third year, the student is introduced to different fields in civil engineering with the emphasis on applications and design. After the completion of his third year, the student undertakes an 8-week summer training program in industry. Appropriate electives are also offered to further enhance the student’s knowledge in one or more of the areas of civil engineering. In addition, courses in humanities, social sciences and economics are integrated into the program to broaden the student’s knowledge.

  2. Pursue career developmental activities for up-to-date professionally-technical knowledge and skills; and
  3. Conduct impactful basic and applied research activities to develop efficient solutions.
Student Outcomes

The Civil Engineering (BS) students by the time of graduation will have the ability to:

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
