Civil Engineering (CE) at National University of Singapore (NUS)

Civil engineering is a broad field of engineering that deals with the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of fixed structures or public infrastructure, as they are related to earth, water, or civilization and their processes. In essence civil engineering is the profession which makes the world a more habitable place to live. Hence the civil engineer seeks innovative solutions to tackle the ever-changing problems associated with the living environment, i.e., how we live, work, travel and play. Thus as long as a higher standard of living is demanded, there will be a need for civil engineers to develop and design better living environment. As the broadest field in engineering, civil engineering requires the integration of many areas of specialties.

Our CE Programme

Our CE Programme aims to produce engineer leaders and provide our graduates with multiple career pathways. Fundamentals will be sufficiently covered and with flexible curriculum structure, our students are able to tailor their programmes to suit their aspiration whether to become specialists to tackle challenging CE projects or to cover the broad spectrum of civil engineering and management to be CEOs, CFOs, bankers, regulators or policy makers.

Degree Requirement

In order to graduate with the B.Eng. (Civil) degree, students are required to:

  • Complete a minimum of 161 MCs with a CAP ≥2.0.
  • Pass the modules in accordance with Table A.
  • Pass 4 technical electives
  • Satisfy all other requirements as prescribed by the Faculty or the University.


Subject to the approval of the Department, students may opt to take a relevant module in another department as one of the four technical electives. The module must be of at least Level-3000 standard and must be taken on a graded basis.

Students may opt for one of the following programmes:

  • Specialisation in Offshore Engineering
  • Double Degree in Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) and Bachelor of Arts (Economics)
  • Double Degree in Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) and Bachelor of Arts (Accountancy)
  • Double Degree in Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) and Bachelor of Business Administration
  • Double Degree with either Ecole Polytechnique (X) or Ecole Central Paris (ECP) or Ecole Nationale Superieure des Minesde Paris (ENSMP) leading to Bachelor of Engineering (Civil), Diplome d’Ingenieur and Master of Engineering or Master of Science.
  • Dual Majors in Civil Engineering and various other disciplines. Please visit the following websites: http://bba.nus.edu/tech/htm http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/undergrad/toknow/academic_requirements/double _majors.html

For students aspiring for a First Class Honors Degree, they must obtain at least an A- grade for CE4104 B.Eng Dissertation.
