Civil Engineers are responsible for planning, designing, constructing, and managing the built environment, more generally called the infrastructure. These can include roads, bridges, canals, dams, buildings, and more at both small scales to huge-scaled projects.
Courses in civil engineering include foundation subjects concerning designing, building and managing infrastructure elements. The program has a wide range of lab experiences that provide practical hands-on exposure. In the senior years, students can choose specialisms within the program in structural engineering, transportation engineering, Construction management, geotechnical engineering, or water resources engineering. The coursework is complemented with interventions to sharpen or develop soft skills like communication, teamwork, and critical thinking, which are essential for a successful career. From the first to the final year, students have opportunities to carry out several projects in which student teams, working with faculty/industry mentors, put their knowledge to work on a real-world issue to find innovative solutions to engineering problems. The program also offers the option of doing an internship with industry or research labs.
