Civil Engineering

School of Construction & Built Environments

Advantages & Careers

Civil engineering is one of the most required specialties due to the continuing need for design, development, and control of the new facilities that increase every day.

 

There is a high demand for civil engineers all over the world. Also, in the labor market, civil engineers usually have the lowest unemployment rates in the world.

Future Careers:

  • Self-employment, a general civil engineer.

  • Head of civil engineering.

  • Work in all kinds of civil engineering services.

  • Work in real estate and bank projects.

  • Work in contracting companies.

  • Work in engineering consulting companies.

  • Work in environmental and water laboratories.

  • Work in civil engineering supervision.

Program Summary

Civil engineering work on bridges, roads, agricultural irrigation systems, airports, water and sanitation systems, huge buildings, and dams, then designing and analyzing the results to identify weaknesses and try to find a practical solution.

 

Civil engineering is not only related to design and implementation but also to the follow-up of how the new facility works, helping to raise the status of humankind, and putting all the resources of nature to serve it.

Civil engineering is one of the important specialties studying different buildings.

Program Objectives

1. To produce graduates with an enthusiasm for civil engineering, an appreciation of its application in different contexts and to involve them in an intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying.

2. To produce graduates with the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding in order to be competitive and creative.

3. To produce graduates with the ability to apply a variety of methods and skills in the investigation and solution of real civil engineering problems.

4. To produce graduates with the qualities and skills for employability, enabling them to either pursue programmes of further study or to move directly into their chosen employment in industry and manage their own continuous professional development.

5. To meet the educational requirements (in compliance with UK-SPEC), at degree level, to permit progression to Incorporated Membership of the appropriate Engineering Institution.
