Course Structure

Civil engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines. The major disciplines covered in our civil engineering programme are shown below. The courses in the Programme are grouped into five major subject domains, with the purpose of providing students with different diversities of specialization. These subject groups are:

  • Projects and Engineering Fundamentals
  • Structural Engineering and Materials
  • Construction and Transportation Engineering
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Water and Environmental Engineering

A wide variety of courses are organized under these subject groups to provide systematic and progressive guidance for students to develop different career prospects and further enhance their academic achievements. Laboratory sessions are integrated into a number of courses in the Programme to provide a hands-on experience to students in dealing with laboratory testing and to let students get insights into the physical problems related to civil engineering. There is also a Final Year Dissertation, which helps students consolidate and apply their knowledge in real situations, acquire research skills and develop their self-learning ability. All the civil engineering courses together serve as a solid platform for students to develop their civil engineering skills, preparing them to pursue their future career goals or postgraduate education and research.
