Civil engineering concerns the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and management of various types of infrastructure systems. Examples include buildings, bridges, roads, railways, tunnels, airports, harbor facilities, slopes, dams, landfills, water pipes, water and sewage treatment plants, power lines, gas mains, and various other structures. In short, civil engineers deal with the infrastructure of modern civilization. 

The aim of our civil engineering program is to equip students with the technical skills, intellectual ambition, and sense of social responsibility needed to (i) build infrastructure systems locally and worldwide, and (ii) maintain a safe, clean and sustainable environment. 

Internship training, industrial training, final-year project and capstone design project are included in our innovative and balanced curriculum. Internship training gives students opportunities to gain professional experience and apply theories to real-life situations. Students are required to complete a minimum of 6 weeks of on-the-job training in civil engineering consulting firms, contractors, developers, or relevant government departments, or an equivalent of 5 weeks of mock construction training under the supervision of professional practitioners.
